To be honest in the eyes of the children this place is fantastic! Lots of space looks good. Only for parents it's expensive, more so I could buy a Merlin Pass for the price of a pass here. Echoing what others have said it's chaotic with no staff about. Such a Shame as it's a good place. This has put... More

Took my 2 year old grand son and 8 year old grand daughter who has a disability, with my daughter this week. Overall, it could be one of the best soft play center's around but unfortunately it's spoiled by unsupervised children and not enough staff. It's also expensive to get in and you pay for each child over the age... More

Very overpriced, dirty and greasy tables, generally vile and disgusting. Under 2 and under 4 zones with children in well over appropriate age. No staff to be seen around play areas. Balls everywhere causing health and safety hazard. Won't be going back. Go to Frankie's in Romsey instead.

I visited here today with my two children who are 6 and 3. I have never reviewed anywhere in my life before but feel I need to about this place. We got there early on at 10.15 so we would have a good time to play, eat and say goodbye to dear friends before the family emigrate at the end... More

As I work as a childminder I have a few children at different ages and trying to find a play centre what will cover all ages is sometimes hard but with gambados it covers all ages so all the children are very happy wish I had one a bit closer to home.

Admission charges are too much in my opinion, I don't agree in charges for adults to get in the venue, it's ludicrous. Having said that it's a very large space which children would love. Sometimes you can get offers on groupon.

I took my four year old to a build-a-bear morning yesterday and it was fab. He spent 20-30 minutes making his chosen dalmation toy, an hour playing and then a nice sandwich-based lunch. All for £8 which was really good value for money, especially as the toy hasn't left his side since being made. The lady who ran it, Abbie... More

Really got stuck in interacting and having fun with my guests . The mascots were great . We had Frozen characters, minions and Spiderman. Looked great, the kids (and... More
