While the centre itself is good, the rules about adults in the softplay areas are blurred. I've seen big boys and girls, and adults having fun with no related children involved, sometimes taking over small spaces such as the ball pool; management does allow this unless there's havok caused by the aforementioned adults. Not what I would expect of an... More

We've just arrived home after the best day at Gambado. It was such a good deal, £2 for each child and £1.50 for me. (I don't agree with adults paying - but can't really moan) both my children loved it and met loads of new friends. We stayed for well over 4 hours and I still had to drag them... More

I visited here with my son and his friend for a cheap day out! We visited on a £2 offer day which I had seen on Facebook. We arrived and it was extremely busy so there was a little wait but that was to be expected on a miserable day. I think a manager (black shirt and trousers) served us... More
