After writing a review back in 2011 (when it was Ollie's play land). I hadn't really visited for a few years.
About a year ago I started visiting again as it had changed hands and I now have another young child. Initially I was very impressed - the food was good, the staff were friendly & the prices were good.
I was going in with friends regularly & would often just pop in for lunch & a quick play whilst out shopping as the price was very reasonable at just £1 for babies under 18 months - I always spent plenty on food & drink as well.
In recent months things have been slowly going down hill & I have been less & less inclined to visit with today being the final straw.
The staff have changed several times in the last couple of months now having been replaced with people who don't seem to have a clue what they are doing, the menu has changed & now does not have such a good selection & now the prices have been increased too.
Add all of that to the fact that the place is VERY dirty & unsafe for children (I have seen cleaning cupboard and an office left wide open for anyone to go in with no staff anywhere I'm sight)
The price increase has been from £1 to £5.75 - which is for a 15 month old who hardly uses any of the equipment.
Unfortunately I will not be returning here & will be using other much cleaner soft play areas such as THE ARK in Poole park (which cost £4.95 & has the advantage of free parking)
It's such a shame because this place has such great potential in the right hands & is in a great location when out shopping in Poole.
I really hope this gets taken over by someone who can maximise the potential & turn it into the great soft play area that it could be.
