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.

Only just discovered Gambado and was our first visit. Had an 11 and 3 year old and both loved it. They would have stayed all day if they could have. The climbing wall and carousel was a brilliant addition to the soft play and kept the kids entertained for hours. The staff were brilliant and interacted great with the kids. I cannot believe this place is closing at the end of the month. It is the best indoor play area we have been to. Travelled from Fife to go here and would happily have continued to travel here if it were not closing. Will definitely be visiting again before it closes. Only down side is that I did not know about this place sooner and it is closing as the other centres are a bit too far to go to.

My 5yo son had his birthday party at Gambados today and he and his friends had an amazing time. Well organised and the girl taking care of the kids was very good. The staff made sure all the guests came to the party room. Tiger Gambado" coming out was a great touch!! Fantastic experience for the little one and a great value for money. The only negative thing was that even 15 minutes before our time was up the staff started to clear the room and organise it for the next party and this made us feel rushed and she didn't check back again for our overall feed back. Anyway, we will organise another party there hopefully soon!!

We were very pleased with the whole experience. It was our first time having to arrange a party for my 3 year old daughter. Everything was completely hassle free. I would definitely recommend Gambado and would have another party there again.”

My son loves this place. He adores the make believe area with the bus and the kitchen area. The big slide is still too big for him but he'll go down it with either his dad or me.

The only gripe I would have is that the coffee is revolting.

Looking for a place to let the kids run of steam? Look no further! Big massive and full of fun. So much to do. Prices in the cafe are great and it's well worth the money to take up the membership.
