I'm a regular to mini monsterz and have always rated it highly but I have never held one of my childrens birthday parties here until today,what can I say apart from it was fantastic,I just sat back and relaxed while everything was taken care of for me. As usual the staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The lazer tag was... More

On holiday in Whitby and finding ourselves faced with a day of heavy rain we went to Minimonsterz in Ruswarp. There was a queue leading out of the door when we arrived but it moved quickly enough and we were signing in after 15 minutes. The lady working on the reception area was very friendly and helpful despite the pressure... More

The facility is good although we missed the outdoor part due to the rain. Parking, table finding, food ordering, everything has a long queue. The big soft play is quite challenging for a three years old.

Thank you for your review. You're right, we did have quite a few queues on the day of your visit. We are always much busier when it is raining! For those who prefer it quieter we recommend visiting on a sunnier day when we have no queues and fewer people using the centre. I see your 3 year old found... More

This is a decent sort of place, exciting play zones for kids of all ages. However, the way the two zones are separated it leaves a clear design flaw. You've an under 4 zone which is fair enough but inside the over 4 bit are slides which can't be used by under 5s. And to get round this we have... More

One of the more alarming things we have to do running a children's play area is having to explain to the occasional parent that allowing their three year old to go on a FOUR metre vertical drop slide is perhaps not the best idea. Fortunately such imbeciles are a rare breed (they certainly don't usually make their ineptitude as a... More

Visited here whilst it was raining on our hols. A great play centre, really impressed with size and that the smaller section for under 3s was so big. Only drawback was that it was expensive as soft play goes - and you have to pay separately for parents! Never had to pay for myself before when my children are paying.... More

Thank you for your review. We are delighted that you were impressed with our play facility. We have just celebrated our 7th birthday and you'd be surprised by how many people think we are a new centre. We are continuously making improvements and spend a lot of time and effort on maintenance of the frame. We are however disappointed that... More

Went with two families with kids ranging from 8 to 18! Limited choice of things to do around here when it's raining! Very packed during week day. Just about enough to do for a couple of hours if you're under twelve. Take a paper to read if you're an adult.

Thank you for your review. You are right. We are always busier when it's raining as we are primarily an indoor attraction. We do tend to encourage sunny day visits for those who prefer it quieter. We hope we are able to welcome you back again in the future. More

Went here with my 7 month old daughter, didn't expect there to be a sufficent baby area but there was plenty of toys for her to play with in a lovely soft play area. Well worth a visit
