My son had his 6th birthday party at Gambado on Saturday with 14 friends. It was excellent. Great views with two hours of play and food. Hot lunch boxes went down very well, unlimited juice. The host was fab and the children enjoyed playing a game with her on the slides. Staff were very accommodating of food allergies. The children... More

great place for kids, great play area for all ages, food isn't too expensive compared to some play areas. the wall climbing and carousel ride is a great thing most play centres don't offer.

Great venue with a good assortment of activities including the party room, carousel, climbing wall and massive soft play. We had a party of 11 kids aged 2-4 and they loved it. It especially helps in Edinburgh that Adults are free for the party and you get free parking.

Gambado is great for a party - my son has had two birthday parties there and they were both great. The staff are very friendly and helpful. We rarely go on other occasions though as I object to adults having to pay to get in as well as the children.

Firstly the staff are amazing, so friendly and great with the kids and is suitable for all ages including babies However Gambado's is very expensive if you don't have a membership as the adults don't go free as is the case in most other soft play centres. But I love that you can... More
