Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Had our sons 6th and 7th birthday party here, perfect party... 1hr play and 30mins food time!

2hrs would be better in my opinion but it's a great party to be had by 20 kids!

Clean, wonderful food, helpful staff and a large area for kids to play!

Brilliant fun for our energetic 5 and 7 year old granddaughters. Although the bouncy area was closed (check for availability as it’s open only at certain times) the main area occupied our girls very happily for a couple of hours while we enjoyed a cuppa in the café. The bonus is that the café and play zone are right next door to each other, separated only by a padded bench, so the children can pop to and fro to their families when they wish. Café prices are very reasonable and the staff are lovely - cheerful, welcoming and efficient. This is our granddaughters’ No.1 go-to place when they come and visit!

Reasonable price for two hours play. All staff very polite and welcoming. Kids loved the bounce area and the soft play. And the coffee tasted great. Keep up the good work.

We hadn’t been before and I did find the booking online process confusing as I could book my daughter in for soft play at 12pm, but no parent option for this time. I called up and the lady who answered the phone was very helpful explaining which slot to book. When we arrived the lady on reception was very welcoming and explained to us where things were. My daughter really enjoyed the visit, particularly the sensory room. The place was clean and there were lots of staff monitoring everyone. Overall really impressed with the facilities and we will definitely be coming back again.

Terrible. Not clean. Mess all around cafe area floors, tables etc. Lack of staff. Management not accepting of fault or blame. Poor cleanliness standards. Do not book for parties. Poor

We were told that we couldn’t use the trampoline part because a school was using it which was fine until all of the 14/15 year olds started to stampede into the other section with no thought to the children who all felt they had to leave including my 3 year old because she was too scared to play with teenagers pushing past her and throwing balls etc in what is supposed to be for children under the age of 12. She wasn’t able to play where she wanted and felt very overwhelmed so it felt like a waste of money.

Lovely place, But I will not be taking my daughter here again.
My daughter had a accident happen during a birthday party
She went down a black slide that had a bend through it.
She hurt her lip and her top tooth.
She came walking to food area with her mouth bleeding.
There were no staff on sight for her straight away I had to take her to reception.
I did mention I was not happy nobody was really around.
I would be concerned if this is appropriate age, we’re they even checking who knows.
I asked for Accident form as I was not given one Untill I asked.
It was half filled, No name of person completing the form.
No reference number.
I felt form is not properly done.
My daughter did loose one of her teeth after accident luckily it was abit wobbly.
I just think more training is need on your forms and making sure staff are around.
Email company they felt they done enough.

I had really high hopes for this place, but reality is? Needs to be turned back into the amazing swimming pool it once was!

On arrival parking is not great (oh well).
Entrance is clean but a little dusty! Reception wasn't entirely helpful (I was a newbie) and told I had to buy some socks...

Going in, I noticed dust everywhere! And most of the areas are boarded off! (Lack of staff maybe?) A horrible chip fat smell where the oil clearly needs to be changed! No staff ANYWHERE it was deserted.

My little one barely played as it was so restricted and most areas boarded off. There was no warning of this, the sensory room is absolutely basic with a few lights and beanbags. Even then didn't feel clean!

I left within 20 minutes as there was really nothing else to do! It cost me £7 which was in my opinion expensive with most boarded off.

Don't waste your time. Go to wild wonderland in gosport instead! Even another parent there was saying the same thing.
