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.

We had our daughter’s 6th birthday here with her 15 friends and they had a blast. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and the party host, Georgia, did a great job of organising the kids and keeping them entertained- thank you!

This place is dirty, the toilets are smelly and not kept clean at all. The children are allowed to be jumping on the merry go round and other play items (moving) and nothing said it's dangerous environment to be in.

Food terrible hard chips and cold. We won't be going back.

I took my granddaughter who is 15 months old. Access was easy, there was plenty of different play areas for her age and as it was midweek during term time it wasn’t too busy. The cost was £7 this included her lunch and you could stay for as long as want so seemed good value. The food choices weren’t great, my granddaughter has a health conscious diet which didn’t leave a lot to choose from we went with the fish fingers, salad and beans. There wasn’t anything to choose for dessert that wasn’t full of sugar, would have been nice to have a pasta and tomato option for a main and yogurt or fruit of some kind for dessert. I had a toasted sandwich, it was ok for what I paid. There was a lot of things to spend money on, small rides, arcade games and lots of toys and sweets I could imagine if a child is old enough to ask you could spend a fortune.

We used Roarsome as a pit stop for the children on our road trip. We went on a Monday during the day.

PROS
- Mandy was an absolute superstar. Made us feel so welcome and chatted away to both my children
- conveniently located
- clean
- building blocks
- separate play areas for bigger and little uns
- food was decent- couldn't finish my jacket potato as it was generous
- free meals for children

CONS
- not all the games worked but didn't sway the children from being able to play

A great soft play centre which caters for all ages. We had a party for my 4 year old in February and the staff, in particular Jade, were organised and helpful. I can recommend this as a party venue or just somewhere to take the kids after school. The equipment keeps them well entertained and the food is good too. Plus your little one can eat for £1 during the week with entry.

Attended with my three year old, another mum and her two kids (1&3).
It was absolutely filthy. Thick with dust everywhere in the play area, thick enough to wipe your finger through and leave a line in it. There’s lots of ‘dead space’ areas under parts of the frames, which had rubbish, wrappers and even thicker dust.

Before I’d noticed how dirty the equipment is, I’d ordered a coffee in the cafe. I noticed the shelves that the mugs were kept on was also dirty looking and covered in bits. It made me wonder what the kitchen is like if they’re happy for customers to see that.

The whole place is very tired and desperately in need of a thorough deep clean.

We would not recommend and definitely won’t be returning.
