Captain Kids Adventure Play is a large safe indoor adventure area with lots of different obstacles, slides, ball pools and canons. There is an area for toddlers, separate from the main play area, where they can play safely. Our childrens birthday parties are always popular and children can join our Crew Club. We have two cafes for parents to relax in with Seattles Coffee and magazines to read. Find us inside Skegness Pier.

Whilst on a weekend break in Skegness we decided to take our nephew to Captain Kids Adventure Play Area & what a place it is. On entry we had a warm friendly welcome from a young lady with blonde hair, she explained all about what activities were on & possible time scales. We payed 4.75 which we thought was extremely...

Was good on a rainy day, children loved it and kept them occupied. Not sure what the food is like because never ate from there.

Having two Grandchildren with us, and had what was a very good meal at The Mirage, (a very similar venue in Mablethorpe). I agreed to try this one. What a mistake it was. We had to sit upstairs due to all the chairs in the seating area taken. The tables were dirty, chips were strewn on the floor. I collected... More

Good afternoon, Captain Kids is a very popular play area, it must have been a very busy day when you visited as the downstairs seating area of Captain Kids seats 58 adults. As you mentioned we do also have an upstairs seating area where some adults prefer to sit as it gives a better view of the higher levels of... More

Rainy day, but no time limit on play. So totally unfair on all the children waiting to go in as completely full. Surely it doesn't make economic sense to have ppl stay all day even for the extra 99p it costs, especially on a wet day. Lots of kids turned away disappointed with the message we have no idea when...

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. Due to the heavy and persistant rain last Tuesday we were absolutely mobbed throughout the Pier. It was perhaps the busiest day we have ever had. We very very rarely get 'full' in Captain kids so we do not like to restrict entry time. The Play area is a large... More

This was a great place for the little 2 (9 & 10) to play for a few hours. However the prices of the drinks were IMO quite high for a place like this even taking into account that it was at the coast.

Good Afternoon, Further to your review of our attraction, since we do not normally allow dogs in the childrens play area and we very rarely have customers with assistance dogs our new team member wanted to just double check she wasn't doing anything wrong.
