We've been to Gambado many times over the years as it is a place my children enjoy. However, it has really gone downhill and is very porly run, as several people have commented. There is a very large, bright poster advertising that the climbing wall is 'open on weekends' so we went on a Saturday since that is my son's... More

Turned up with a Groupon voucher but turned away as they said it was "too busy" but they perfectly accepted payment on the spot even though it was overly crowded with no tables to sit and kids climbing on top of kids in the play area. The food ordered was soo expensive and the burger i ordered resembled a lump... More

My daughter attended her friend's birthday party which was half an hour of soft play and then nerf gun shooting once the place had closed to the public with a half hour for food in between. The host (Claire possibly)was nothing more than rude! She had no sense of humour,in fact I don't think I saw her break a smile... More

I am mum to two boys - youngest has ADHD and is very energetic so this is a place where he can run that energy out. My sons are 6 and 10 and they can both find lots to do. We have attended many parties at Gambado over the years and each time my boys leave happy and tired :)... 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
