If you’re a parent in lockdown, there’s a good chance that you’re juggling home-schooling, working from home, AND soon enough, you’ll have to entertain the kids during the school holidays. Merlin Entertainments is here to the rescue these school holidays, with the launch of Holiday Heroes Hub, the ultimate superhero school holiday online destination to save the day these school holidays!

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s Holiday Heroes! Every day throughout the September holidays, let the Holiday Heroes Hub knock out boredom with a range of activities to keep the kids entertained, and out of your hair!

While you’re busy being Wonder Women or Super Dad, let us save the day! The kids will be entertained with:

  • Virtual visits to Australia’s most iconic animal attractions through live streams from SEA LIFE Aquariums and WILD LIFE Sydney Zoo
  • Live LEGO® building workshops from LEGOLAND® Discovery Centre Melbourne and MUCH MORE!
  • Superhero challenges and craft activities from Madame Tussauds Sydney
  • Learn about Sydney Tower Eye’s super strength and how it protects the city of Sydney

The Holiday Heroes Hub offers a range of live sessions and activities that have been expertly curated by Merlin Entertainments’ superhero Curatorial and Education teams to appeal to kids of all ages.

All content on the Holiday Heroes Hub is created with inquisitive little superheroes in mind and is downloadable here: 

The Hub will be updated regularly to ensure the content is new, exciting, and relevant!
