We took our son to play factors today and had a smashing day out. We went off peak and it was cheaper and very quiet. Other mums reported large queues at the weekend and it is more expensive. The place was really clean the food was a reasonable prics leand really tasty. The staff were very helpful and engaged well with
our son. I would highly recommend this place for the whole family..just don't forget socks and long sleeves to protect your toes and arms/elbows. A special thanks to one of the managers who gave my son a sticker and reassurance when he got upset at home time.

My 3 year old little boy was waiting outside the gate by the electric go kart area when an older boy (8/9 yr old) decided it would be a good idea to drive the car off the track and through the gate knocking my little boy down... Now there was a member of staff in the go kart area at the time who no use whatsoever. How the lad managed to do this I never know. My little boy was in flood of tears and not one member of staff was the slightest bit interested. My little boy's dad stormed over to the reception desk to report it and the response he got is 'oh right, we will send someone over'.... This person on reception then went back to putting up decorations for the Mad Hatter tea party the following day! Now surely there are Health & Safety issues here if the gate can come open so easily when it is meant to be locked..... We never got an apology or anything from anyone. My little boy calmed down about about 5/10 mins but the behavior of the staff was disgusting. This could have been far more serious. Wouldn't bother going again and would rather go to a smaller more friendly play center.

I took my 2 kids here (age 6 and 11) they both really really enjoyed it and asked if they could go back the next day! There was plenty for them to do and they both found something they were interested in, with them being 5 years apart it's sometimes hard to find a kids play centre that caters for both of them but the play Factore has hit the nail on the head!! It's also good because I got the chance to go in the play frame with them and play which gave us all some quality time together :)
The food is amazing, it doesn't taste cheap like most other children's places and although it's a bit pricey it's definitely worth it knowing you will get good food!
We had a bit of a wait to get in but that's expected in most places nowerdays! But the wait was made bearable by the amazing magician Kate who performed some really good and mind blowing tricks for us. My kids really loved her and have asked me if we can book her for their birthday parties!
All the staff were really friendly and smiley and were happy to help when we had any questions!
Also the toilet facilities were really clean and nice smelling!
We will definitely be returning to the play Factore and have agreed as a family we will be going once a month. Worth a visit!

Visited Play Factore at the weekend with my two children, aged 10 and 7 and they absolutely loved it! The laser tag was fantastic for my boy and he had unlimited goes for the full time we were there. Ellie loved the go karts and the dancers were a big hit, playing just dance every hour and then doing flips and tricks for the kids and encouraging them to show off their own moves. The staff are all fantastic with kids of all ages and make it a great environment to be in. So clean too!!! For such a big place full of kids the standard of clean is better than any other play centre I've been to. Seen people complaining about price, but for 2 and a half hours the admission is reasonable with all the facilities you get. Happy to pay the peak prices for such a brilliant time for us all. Will be returning for sure!!
