Despite the strange location at the back of a petrol station this turned out to be a good little soft play. The main area is downstairs, not massive but also not overwhelming so good for younger children. The food menu looked healthier than the usual...More

It's nice to have a play place to go to in the Isle of Man that is clean! Unlike some of the other venues on the island, this one isn't filthy! The price is reasonable considering the two hours of fun our little ones had....More

My kids loved Shorties. It is well set up for kids to enjoy their pirate fantasies, while parents can enjoy a drink and a chat. The IOM needed an alternative indoor play area for kids, and Shorties has been set up really well. I would...More
