Good value for money, very busy.

We visited on a horrible rainy day, as did many many other people. We expected it to be busy though and were prepared to wait. We didn't have to wait long to get in but we did... read more

A kids paradise (and adults!). The children loved it. Made their own stick of rock with their initial in the middle. Then made a chocolate lolly. We all enjoyed our look around the working factory. Staff are so cheerful and friendly. The cafe there is good value and excellent coffee!

To quote my 7 year old daughter. This is ' the best soft play area ever!'. Good play variety of play facilities for all ages. Good level of service. Food is ok, just the standard you would expect at a soft play centre. Special mention for the coffee though which is lovely and would definitely recommend the Caramel Shortcake..Overall very...

Great little place, worth the entry fee and definitely worth paying an extra £1 to roll your own stick of rock! Found it entertaining especially on a rainy day as its all indoors. samples of chocolate and biscuits were delicious. The shop is very reasonably priced to take away some lovely souveniers aswell. Nice staff, nice afternoon!!!

We visited on a horrible rainy day, as did many many other people. We expected it to be busy though and were prepared to wait. We didn't have to wait long to get in but we did have to wait in the rock section for over 40 minutes so my children could roll their own piece. This cost £1 each... More

The kids enjoyed an hour in there then we went around the factory tour. Had a great time the kids rolled some rock which had their initials in and made a chocolate lolly for... More

Went on a wet Thursday of the October half term. Arrived in the very busy car park at half past one. Decided we wanted to do the factory tour so paid £8.50 in total for the three of us to get in. Once inside we got to nibble on sweets, biscuits and fudge....rather tasty. Paid £1 extra for the 5... More

Visited the Rock factory last week, weather wasn't great so this indoors attraction filled some time in. Boys (both under 7) enjoyed making rock and chocolate lollies. Indoor play area within the facility was good for under 8's. Work visiting the factory on a rainy day, it'll kill a couple of hours.
