June 5 & 6 Winnipeg Manitoba

Shawn took the kids to The Winnipeg zoo, great value for money at $10 and they had a lot of fun. The campground is next to Tinkertown (and a railway, as everything is in Winnipeg!). Tinkertown is a fun fair and has got to be the best value for money kid entertainment we have found. $13.90 each for a wristband pass that lets you ride as many rides as you want as often as you want. We could not get Rhianna and James off the roller coaster! It is nice to experience good value as opposed to feeling ripped off by fun fair rides.
The Travellers RV park was by contrast a rip off...they charged us $2.50 extra per child and $3 an hour x 2 hours, as we were not out at check out time even though the enormous RV park was half empty. For $35 a night I would expect more gracious hosts, internet, cable and much better bathrooms. The people once again were miserable. Sorry Manitoba but no points for friendliness.
We arrived in Manitoba on the historic Red Coat Trail and were disappointed that there was not a Welcome to Manitoba border sign, as the kids have enjoyed having their photo's taken at each Provincial boundary as we crossed.
