“Needs maintenance”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012 via mobile

Would be great if They actually spent some money on the place. Really poor lighting with half the lights not working. Cheap chairs and tables. Just really poor maintenance. Seems they want TI flog the assets as much as they can. But does ask the question if they cannot be bothered or afford to replace some lightbulbs (and about 50% have blown) then what else have they saved on?

Hi,
Half of the bulbs are indeed shut off but only because they are ultraviolet to make it all a lot more fun at night.
We keep our building very well maintained all year round and concentrate on the maintenance during school time when it is off peak. We also have the play area professionally maintained by a well established company every few months. Hope this clears some bits up for you and thank you for visiting us!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

I went there with my wife and 3 children to visit the play park during the half term in February and was truly amazed at the sheer size of the childrens area! It really is a must see thing its 6 or 7 storeys high,has 3 drop slides one being over 8 metres high!
Price could be better but is still not too bad as you get to stay all day, Friendly staff throughout the building plus free parking outside.
Ten lanes of Tenpin bowling there but we did not try that this visit, Maybe next time

Visit when you get a chance you will not regret it at all
