Used to visit as a child myself so was strange to come back 20 years later with my own little boy. We spent about 1.5 hours here, my baby is just starting to learn to walk but could enjoy most areas. It’s a great big open space of a play gym which makes it fantastic fun and never seen as busy. There’s a tiny free car park near the entrance or you can park in the bigger car parks around which aren’t part of cheeky monkeys.
Sadly more like a warzone than a safe play area. The under 5s areas over run with much older children jumping from the buildings throwing ride on cars and pushing and shoving each other and the smaller children While their parents sat talking and drinking coffee. Even when notified of the issues and asked to intervene the staff hid in the kitchen area. Myself and others left. If not careful this centre will lose decent customers to inherit bad or none. Also as i left carpark completely blocked which in case of an accident and an ambulance needing to attend is a massive risk
Extremely cold temperature feels like outside!! Is this economy for lower energy bills or marketing strategy for sell more hot tea & coffee? But what about kid's comfort? Also there isn't ball pool, or trampoline and not so much things to do for children :
This is by far the best soft play I’ve come across for my child who is 22 months. So much for him to do in comparison to other soft plays! It’s clean, cheap, staff are friendly and the viewing area allowed me to actually drink my brew for once whilst supervising him! The only draw back was there isn’t enough parking so I had to park down the road. Walking down the spooky backroad late was abit scary. But once day light is longer I’ll definitely be back a lot!
I visited alongside my little 3 year old cousin on a Saturday around 2:30pm and was told that the next session would start at 3. Nobody stated that we needed to have booked online in order for the child to play. We returned at 3pm to be told by a rude staff member that we had never even been in as "she hadn't seen us". I did explain to the worker that their colleague I spoke to before should not have stated to return at 3pm. There is also no area to enquire or pay for children to play, you have to visit the cafe. I wouldn't be returning as they way I was spoken to by an older colleague was disrespectful.
Just had my sons 5th birthday party here and wow amazing for little ones. The food they put on was top nosh fish fingers and chicken nuggets with chips also sandwiches with cakes, biscuits with juice .10 out of 10 Ps the staff where so helpful and made my boys day even more special thank you
This is a good soft play area however what let's it down is the cafe we ordered a child's hot meal and waited over 45 minutes when I asked about it at 35 minutes the young assistant told us the party had priority and we would have to wait. Had they told us then we ordered we wouldn't have ordered and won't do so again
Fun place for kids to enjoy! Not so spacious but yet kids enjoyed for 2 hours straight while parents were relaxing!
Visited for the first time, its a lovely soft play area with plenty of entertainment for the little ones and good seating arrangement for the parents. However, there was no ball pit as seen in some of the older pics so was a little disappointed. Also, it was a bit chilly inside. Overall, good experience, would recommend to others and will definitely visit again.
Needs a good clean up and a good luck of paint to freshen it up its very dark n drab. Food took along time. Drinks were nice and staff nice but it needs an uplift
