Fancy a bit of adventure?

When wandering around Pleasure Island during the day, which can be done for FREE by the way, some 7 years ago now I think it was? We realized that in fact there were few places we could enjoy as adults with our 6 year old in tow!! Whilst enjoying the walking around we took a peak inside a few places individually, just to get a taste for what they were like. Some, if memory serves we couldn’t get into during the day, but some were open, though of course, were fairly quiet. But what we did discover on that occasion, was that there were in fact one or two places in Pleasure island, that you could enjoy with your children, as they were permitted! Hurrah!! One of these was called the Adventurers Club, which sits right next to the large stage (on the right as you face it), that celebrates “New Year” every night at midnight, throughout the year!!

We decided we would return one evening just for something that felt like it was more grown up! Clearly, they were a lot more people in the evening, all wearing out wristbands (to indicate whether we could drink or not), and everyone was roaming around with various cocktails or beers in hand, moving from one venue to another! This was when we realized that once you have paid your admission into Pleasure Island, as long as you are over 21, you are able to enter any of the varying venues, to hear dance music, rock music, or 70’s disco for example.

We of course knew with our “little” friend in tow, that we had restrictions, but headed for the Adventures Club, so mum could sample a grown-up drink, and our “little” family member could share our evening! Well, she adored the themed club as we entered, though was a bit young at the time to realize it was like a “stuffy” old gentleman’s Club from the 1920’s, and I think because of all the youngsters and loud music milling about outside, felt VERY grown - up indeed!

The club it’s self is on 3 floors, and when you enter the club, it is a bit like taking an expedition into the past!! We soon learnt in this audience-participation comedy club for tall tales of explorers' adventures, that it was highly possible while you are quietly enjoying your drink and soaking up the atmosphere, that at any minute, a “character” will appear loudly announcing that you need to follow them into the “Mask Room” or the “library”, and once in the room for the “performance”, a very different experience awaits you! Basically the “actors” immediately start to interact with the guests throughout various sketches! You soon get into the fun of it and shout the rallying cry: Kangalosh!! I think that is how you spell it??
You should of course pay close attention to any artwork or décor, don’t forget after all, THIS IS DISNEY!!

We have been back to the club on a number of occasions, and do think now our “little” family member is 4 inches taller than her mum, she gets a bit more out of it, but it has become a sort of old member of our family trips now, that we do visit occasionally!
