Was dreading an indoor play area today as it was raining, Decided to try The Fun Factory as never been there before. It reasonably priced, it was a little bit busy but was given a coloured band and was given 2 hrs of play as it was so busy.. Found a table easily and ordered some drinks which also was reasonable 2 teas and a jug of juice for under £4 and the jug lasted ages.....
They do temporary glitter tattoos for £1 which myn also loved, The ice skating and climbing wall which you normally pay for was free too which I thought was excellent. We had lunch here too which again was very nice and well priced..It came in under £15 for the 4 of us. overall a fab morning and lots of fun here... Would definitely recommend.....

We gone there with my 2 yr old daughter and 4 month old son . She enjoyed the play area . But in economic point of view its a little expensive . They charged for adults too to get in and watch ... Quad biking and climbing will cost extra ....Also there will be an extra annual registration fee. The management was so poor. Hygiene was not been taken care much .. Not a great value centre especially we have lot more other indoor play areas around with less cost...

They charged us £2 for adult ice skating boots even though it was our kids party costing £300 - I was only going on the rink to help the kids as only one member of staff helping the little ones. I said it's our party , the reply was it's still £2 - how short sighted , you've just lost 20 sets of parents custom plus anyone who will listen purely down to greed. It was explained that it's our party but apparently that's policy. Well I'd like to say well done you guys, that £2 has just cost you £££££££££££ - never again, nice place but greedy rip off owners

Inside there is plenty of space, and soft play areas, for young children. There is a baby sensory area - which could benefit from being restricted to babies & parents only. I have a one year old boy at the moment who loves the place and, to be honest, I enjoy accompanying him around!

The admission fees are reasonable, the on site parking is free, and the tea and coffee is cheap!
