We're from west lothian and soft plays here are quite basic. My fiancé and I decided to take our 7 year old to Gambado as a Saturday treat. We paid around £6 for one child which included a membership of around £2. We weren't too keen on having to give all of our full details (address ect) for a few... More

Our 6 year old son had an excellent time there. When we arrived the party room was all set up and Hazel was there to greet us. Everything was clearly explained to us as to how she was going to run the event. The place itself is the perfect size for this age group so we knew that the 2... More

This soft play center had a choice of activities for kids to have fun, including a small rock climbing wall. The children enjoyed themselves. However, in one place where the kids climb up to go down the slides, and walk along a path with rope nets on the sides, a suspended rope broke and my grand daughter fell on the... More

We went here yesterday and all of my family had a ball. We can't wait to go back. I like how you feel secure in the building and there truly is something for everyone. I enjoyed the hot chocolate whilst my husband enjoyed the newspapers. The carousel is excellent and at just £2 your children can use again and again.... More

Great place to visit. Keeps the children entertained for hours. The kids love it and I have their birthday parties here every year. The party hosts and staff are always really friendly and happy to help. The canons in the frame need fixed but apart from that there is plenty to do for kids off all ages. Would definitely recommend!

I go to Gambado quite often and I always come away with three happy children. It might seem a bit pricey at first but there are actually so many offers. Members of staff are always friendly and helpful, the place is clean and safe. Would definitely recommend!

Had a fab time at Gambado Edinburgh today, the kids were kept busy for hours while I was able to sit and relax. It was clean and all the staff were polite and friendly. Will be back very soon and may even consider buying an annual membership!

Gambado is the best soft play I've ever visited. The prices are slightly higher than the average but I think it makes up for it once you get in (plus you can stay all day) we also bought the carousel wristband which was brilliant. The kids loved it and didn't want to leave. They have activities on during the summer... More
