“What a super place to take kids on a rainy day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2014

We were in Castletown to see the castle and to entertain our 3.5 yr old granddaughter. Turned into a rainy day so after lunch we headed to Shorties. Bit of a nasty walk in the drizzle and sort of a funky location, but what a great place for kids to have fun and burn off energy on a rainy day. We were there for a couple of hours and the granddaughter was delighted. Lots of stuff for toddlers to 8 -10 yr. olds to do. There is a cafe there too - everything looked good and the prices were very reasonable but we didn't partake.

Never did make it to the castle on this trip - and we got soaked walking back to the bus station. Fun!

Highly recommended for what it is!

“My five year old enjoyed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2014

Despite the strange location at the back of a petrol station this turned out to be a good little soft play. The main area is downstairs, not massive but also not overwhelming so good for younger children. The food menu looked healthier than the usual soft play fare, although we didn't try this. My 5 year old was happy to spend a hour or so here.

“Excellent place for children”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2014

This is one of the best soft play places we have been to, loads of things for the children to play on, lean, very safe & secure, good food - and (for the adults!) excellent coffee and free wifi! The staff were very helpful & friendly as well. Highly recommended.

“Brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013

Our granddaughter absolutely loves this place. She is 18 months and loves to interact with other toddlers. It is safe and clean and she loved her pirate box lunch. We will probably go each week because she gets so much from it. Lunch for us was. £4 each spaghetti Bol and chicken Caesar salad which were excellent. Can't fault the place.
