Trivia quizzes are an old favourite and an absolute classic for a reason! They’re interactive and a fantastic way to get the whole family involved. Here at Welcome Family, we host a family friendly trivia quiz at the cruisers club every single Saturday throughout the season. We choose to feature it here because it’s a great way to warm up your sea legs and start to relax into your holiday. Saturday is the most popular date for changeovers and our busiest night in the club, hosting this event means we can give you a proper welcome for your first night at our family holiday parks in Devon, getting to meet new guests and old familiar faces once again.
We do make sure there are questions for all abilities and age groups, including some of the below (whether or not they feature in the quiz, you’ll have to turn up to find out!). You can consider this list of the most popular trivia question a fantastic way to warm up that general knowledge we know you’ve got hidden up your sleeve – why not even use this quiz as a great car game to get everyone excited on the way down. Let us know how many you get right!
Q1: What Is The Capital Of Australia
This is popular because a lot of people automatically jump to Sydney, Australia’s biggest city!
Q2: What Is The Largest Fish In The Ocean
A2: Whale Shark
Another question with a twist because of the confusing name!
Q3: Who Is Mickey Mouse’s Girlfriend?
A3: Minnie Mouse
A nice easy one but might be worth talking through all the gang.
Q4: How Many Planets Are In Our Solar System – 1 Bonus Point For Each Planet Named
A4: 8, Mars, Venus, Earth, Mercury, Jupitar, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto
There’s lots of songs and ways to remember this popular trivia question, always worth trying to score those extra points!
Q5: What Is The Name Of The Toy Cowboy In Toy Story? Bonus Points For The Name That Is Written On His Boot
A5: Woody & Andy
Everybody’s favourite cartoon cowboy is a classic question at a family friendly quiz – will it feature at ours?
Q6: Name All The Patron Saints Of The UK
A6: St Andrew, St David, St George, St Patrick
This is a hard one, the chances are you can name three and forget the fourth. Don’t get them mixed up with other saints!
Q7: Who Led A Gang Of Outlaws In Sherwood Forrest
A7: Robin Hood
There might be extra points if you can remember his famous cohort, Little John!
Q8: What Is The Smallest State In America? / What Is The Biggest State?
A8: Rhode Island / Alaska
This might be another tricky one, you’re going to have to really know your US knowledge. The biggest state also throws a bit of a curve ball because many people automatically think of Texas, but Texas can fit inside the state of Alaska more than twice.
Q9: Which Four British Cities Have Underground Rail Systems?
A9: Liverpool, Glasgow, Newcastle & London
One or two might be quite easy to get, but this is a great question to see if you can score some extra points!
Q10: Who Wrote The Lord Of The Rings / Harry Potter / A Popular Trilogy
A10: J R R Tolkien / J K Rowling
It might be worth brushing up on your favourite authors and the best book and film series as these are extremely popular trivia questions. If you’re studying up before a Saturday night, maybe think about some of the directors of these smash hits, too!
Q11: Who Was Henry VIII’s First Wife?
A11: Catherine Aragon
When there’s three Catherine’s this can get especially tricky!
Q12: When Did The First/Second World War Begin & End?
A12: First – 28 July 1914 – 11 November 1918 / Second – 1 September 1939 – 2 September 1945
A lot of quizzes give a point for each part of the answer that you get correct, including day, month and year!

Such an icon in her pink Rolls Royce, but who was her driver!!
