If you’re looking for a day of kids entertainment in Cape Town, then look no further than Wild Wild West Indoor Playpark in Strand.

Recently, we took a trip there for the latest Petit Love shoot, and even the adults had a whirlwind of a time!

We sat down with Xane who is mom to two beautiful boys. And, the owner of this adventure space. We chat all things entrepreneurial, family fun and excitement for little ones.

Xane, you’re the mastermind business woman behind the Wild Wild West Playpark. Can you tell us a bit more about your business? 

Wow, mastermind makes me sound like the most bad-ass super villain in town. But, to be completely honest, I could never have done this alone. I had such an amazing team by my side. This project would not have been possible without Ryan Koen from Wooden Elements and his superb team.

The Wild Wild West indoor Kids Playpark offers endless fun. It’s packed with activities. We have high-line courses, giant slides, maize climbing courses, a bandit warrior run, tactile toddler areas, the Wild West Kids City, and so much more!

Our entire park is designed to help improve and strengthen muscle development of kids. Some of our courses might seem impossible but, that is where determination gets practiced. So, kids can keep on trying!

We have a delicious menu available and offer Truth Coffee for the adults. It’s a day full of kids entertainment and all-round family fun.

What inspired you to open such an engaging kids entertainment spot for little ones?

Growing up in False Bay, we had so many fun things to do on our doorstep. There was ten pin bowling in Gants area, game arena at Somerset Mall, Jimmy Jungle and loads more, but over the years all of them closed. Kids entertainment places died in False Bay, resulting in moms having to drive hours for a hours play with our little ones.

 

 

We’re fans of that good, old saying – ‘love what you do’. What do you love most about what you do?

I always had a love for kids. Since I became a mom myself that love just expanded. I love seeing my boys happy, laughing and just having the best time ever. There’s nothing better than sharing that love and beautiful experience with all moms, while giving them a break and relaxation. That makes me happy. Happy Mom = Happy Kids.

On Instagram, you’re Momabear_Baby, and your audiences can get a little more insight into your life with your two boys, Elijah and Ezra. What’s your favourite thing about being a mom? 

Oh, that is a difficult one. I just love it all, but if I must choose one thing it would most definitely be having both my boys in my arms and being smothered with kisses from Elijah (Ezra is only 7weeks). I love listening to all the adorable but hilarious sayings they come up with.

 

 

As parenting partners ourselves, we know how important safety is for moms and dads when it comes to their children. What safety measures did you put in place when you created the Wild Wild West?

Our wooden maze is designed so that kids can play free without the fear of danger. It has nets all round, and can hold the weight of parents as well. So, for the little ones that are a bit scared, mom and dad can join in the fun.

We also have attendees all over the play area giving a hand at the highline course and inside the maze. We also have some motivation cowboys at the bandit warrior run, and caring Indians helping with the toddlers.

As the mom of two little boys, we can imagine that your home is always full of energy and excitement. What’s your recipe for ensuring that there’s smiles all around?

Keeping those smiles all round can be challenging at times, especially with a 2 year old in the house but, my recipe is super easy (for now). I have a BIG bag of Woolworths mini marshmallows in the house and all problems are solved.

Social media is buzzing with that famous term ‘mompreneur’, but what does that mean to you?

“Mompreneurs” are super bad-ass moms in my eyes. They’re like all moms but just with a bit more on their plates. Juggling a family and your own business is not easy at all and comes with loads of challenges, good and bad. But, moms are strong and courageous. Chin up and keep up!

 

 

When opening a new business, there’s always lots of learning. At what stage would you say you felt like you’d achieved your version of success?

Oh, I am still far away from that feeling, there is still loads to do before I can say that.

What advice would you give to moms who are trying to juggle their career with motherhood?

Not everyone is perfect and some days are way more difficult than others, but keep that chin up. All good things come in time. I know it’s easier said than done, been there done that, but if you try you have already succeeded.
