Slightly more expensive than others, but well worth it. Much larger and cleaner than most kids play places. £5 off peak and return for £1.50 within 5 days.

Thank you for your lovely review. Considering we are a very large play centre we do try to keep our prices as low as possible and offer good value for money. We hope to see you again soon.
