14 Amazing Experiences for Families in Melbourne & At Home

A family games night is always a great way to get the family together and create wonderful memories that will last a lifetime! However, the usual board games and card games can get a little mundane and repetitive when played too often.

Thankfully there are companies like AmazingCo who create wonderful and unique experiences that families can enjoy together.

What makes the experiences by AmazingCo even better is that you won’t have to stress about planning and preparing everything. Instead, all you’ll have to do is wait for your scheduled time and join in on the fun as you take in the unforgettable experience that is about to unfold!

To help you and your family find the best AmazingCo family offerings, I’ve compiled this list of their top family experiences in Melbourne.

1. Family Date Night

Got a family of puzzle lovers looking to test out their puzzle-solving skills? The Family Date Night experience will get you and your family maximising their brainpower to solve clues that will reveal a fun challenge for each of you to complete! After all the games and shenanigans the one with the most points takes home the greatest prize – the title of puzzle master (and of course the family’s utmost respect!).

This experience will take up to three hours to complete and will need you to bring a pen and paper, plus a scorecard. The template for the scorecard will be provided by someone from the AmazingCo team. Do note however that even though Family Date Night can be enjoyed by kids of all ages, the experience is best suited to kids aged six and above.

Finally, Family Date Night’s games and challenges are digitally delivered to your device which means that the experience can be played anywhere as long as there is an internet connection.
