Funky Town is an amazing indoor adventure play & party centre based right in the heart of Chester.Funky Town is the place where children can run, play, and slide on a huge climbing frame filled with ball pits, slides, roller squeezes, rope bridges, toddler, disco and sensory zones and so much more!Its not just about the children though, our plush leather sofa's, fully stocked cafe and restaurant facilities offers something for everyone.

lovely place for a family with small children. Wouldn't say it's a day out but could easily and happily spend a few hours in here. It's cafe is very reasonable and it has areas that are suitable from newborns up to older kids too. Well worth a visit

My family like Funky Town - the children love it. It is smaller and the acoustics are better than some of the others (less echoing shrieks :-) ) The main area is good, but the baby area is less interesting than some other soft plays. The food is OK and better than another soft play area we attend -( I... More

Funky town is simply the best indoor play area i have been in Chester and i have been in all of them. It's clean, food is tasty, i had always choice of alternative milk, healthy sweets, dairy free, meat free, gluten free meals/snacks/cakes. People who works in funky town r nice, friendly, smiling a lot, i just feel like home.... More

I went here recently with friends and was pleasantly surprised. My daughter loved it and liked the option of nipping in the disco room for a quick boogie! I ordered pizza and was shocked that it was actually really nice, the thought of eating at a soft play made me cringe before here, but it was fresh, tasty and very... More

well the kids had an amazing time here for our first visit. I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the children so happy playing which you don't always get at play barns. Will definitely be returning over the Xmas holidays. See you again soon

It is smaller than some of the other venues in Chester but this is good for parents as you can keep an eye on your kids!!We booked our sons 4th birthday party at funky town. We went for a... More

I visited here with my family at the start of the holidays, yes it was very busy however the staff are rude and unhelpful. The equipment is dirty and a very poor layout. Whilst I was there I witnessed several accidents which is bound to happen when they let that many children in, I did voice my opinion on the... More

The owners were away for several weeks during the holidays celebrating their wedding. I will talk to the team, however from your comments I... More

Good play area indoors with food & drink facilities & clean toilets. Very child friendly. Good for rainy days but car park appears small when I parked next to place but there maybe more parking at the back.
