The Mullaney triplets are fed up with their family holidays and want some adventure. Hannah, Matthew and Louise have three action-packed trips to choose from. Will they pick surfing, scuba diving or mountaineering? Being in control of the family break also means they have to set down holiday rules for Mum and Dad to follow.
After an action-packed break, the triplets have the chance to win one last amazing treat. All they need to do is pass a quiz; if they fail it, Mum and Dad will be enjoying the treat instead.
