Lovely place but a bit too expensive

This is lovely place for little kids to play in but a bit too expensive. I bought a small portion of cheese macaroni for my little niece and two coffees for £14, was a bit too... read more

Had visited many times over years but had last visit last year when went with 6 year old autistic daughter to mainstream session where she was beaten up by 2 boys whose Dad 'boasted' to his partner about his son kicking my daughters head in. I complained to a member of staff over treatment of daughter and also foul comments... More

I visited today using a groupon voucher(with 2 pcked lunches) and had high hopes given the cost it is normally. We don't live locally so it was an opportunity to test you out. If you want to know whats effecting people not to come back, check out your staff. They are not interested. The carousel was meant to open on... More

With the mid-term holiday approaching, I was anxious on where to go with my 3 'monkeys' as I knew everywhere was going to be jam-packed. I had been to Gambado before and my children (and myself) had thoroughly enjoyed it, so I had decided on going back. It was crazy busy but every one of the staff were extremely welcoming,... More

Have been before with my nephew and niece, always been impressed by the customer service! Visited during the February holidays and noticed the adult charge had been re-introduced but they had now made the carousel free with admission which I felt was a good idea as the kids love to go on it! When I asked about the charge being... More

I would only visit gambado if you are happy with your being brutally attacked while there parents sit and drink tea then by all means visit. 3 of my children one being autistic were tormented for 30 minutes from a group of boys and like any decent parent I kept moving them away to keep them safe but the boys...

After kindly informing Gambado's via their facebook page, that on all 3 occasions we have attended my daughter has become extremely ill and they might look to conducting a deep clean of their facility... My concerns were not addressed and were deleted from their page... Twice! My daughter loves the soft play area but I have been disheartened each time... More

I brought my 2 children here for the first time during the Christmas break. The centre has a pleasant atmosphere and the staff were very friendly. One of my children had a slight fall in the soft play and there was a first aider on hand straight away. Great value for money and there seems to always be a new... More

Payed 7.50 only to find out that there are additional charges for some of the attractions. Was very cold upon arrival at 10.30am. Not going there again.

Whilst on holiday took the children here for some fun time. The soft play area was quite extensive and they had a great time. There were a couple of incidents with other children but thankfully my children had the sense to avoid these unruly kids. The entry price seemed quite excessive to me as my local soft play is less...
