We love this place! Every time we come we are welcomed by Denise and the gang. The staff are wonderful and helpful. As soft play areas go this is the best we've been to by far. Even the children are lovely and our son made lots of friends. They are fair and don't tolerate bad behaviour either. The play area... More

Visited today and had a lovely welcome from a young lady, kids loved the soft play and very clean, the young lady that greeted us on entry never stopped and deserves a medal, she was washing tables and even chairs down at one point while serving food and seeing to people arrive.

Rainy holiday day, so found Mini Monsterz on the web. Maybe I'm out of touch with what these places should charge, but it was £5.99 each for the kids and then £1 for the adults. Was asked if the kids would be going on the 'big' slide not realising that you also have topay extra for that. Kids had a... More

Thank you for your review. Firstly may I say that we are delighted your children had fun at Mini Monsterz and that you enjoyed the coffee. I am disappointed you thought our entry prices were expensive, but we do however, believe that they are very reasonable. The closest soft play to us charges £2.50 per child for half an hour... More

Really impressed with the play area, challenging for all ages but especially for my 5 year old. He really loved it, the staff and service was faultless, considering it was very busy -a perfect rainy day activity. The only downfall was the food, awful and over priced.

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.
