Lots of activities, good space and quite clean considering the volume of traffic. However the reason i went for 3 stars not 4 is something i am not sure is the fault of the venue - it is the complete lack of supervision! The signs throughout clearly state adults are expected to supervise their own children which is fine BUT... More

We've been coming here for a while now and absolutely love it. Unlike some other soft play areas there's plenty of space outside of the soft play for the adults to spread their legs. There's plenty of slides including a very steep one for the braver kids (I mean grown ups), a toddler & baby area and a bouncing pillow... More

Not good for toddlers, equipment either too young or too old for their abilities. Waited over an hour for food once ordered on a quiet Monday. £20 for a jacket potato, panini and children's sandwich meal- absolute rip off!!!! Won't be rushing back.

I had my daughter's 3rd bday party here on a Sunday. The girl that looked after us, her name was Kate, was polite and attentive and really made me feel like it was all under control. It was really busy but I was expecting that as it was a 1pm party on a Sunday. However, all the kids loved the... More

We went here with our almost 2 year old just after Christmas in the morning. I'd been meaning to visit for quite a while as our toddler enjoys soft play. Our toddler was the same price as older children which I don't think it fair for the amount of things available to younger children. There is a toddler section however... More

Not really sure what this place is all about. Boring after half hour, never spend so little time in a soft play before. Nothing to do for toddlers, more for 8 plus. Just doesn't seem safe to me.

We took our daughter here for her 4th birthday and she loved it! Great play area indoor for all ages. Food reasonably priced and good quality. Didn't have chance to use outdoor play area as the weather was bad but looked good from what we could see. Definitely worth a visit

Another great kids party in the big play barn. Very busy with plenty to do, staff were fantastic bringing all the food out on time ensuring everyone was taken care of. Our daughter loves it here.
