“Fantastic value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

We went to mini monsterz with after hearing that scarborough is getting one, what a fantastic place! clean, friendly helpfull staff, lots to do for children of all ages and very good value for money. we have visited many of these soft play type attractions over the years this one is by far the best, we loved it as it was warm, and our children loved it as there was so much to do. food and drink was reasonably priced unlike alot of these places hope Scarboroughs one is just as good.

“A must visit for the family any time if the year”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Have just spent over 4 hours with my 2 girls aged 9 and 8. We holiday in Whitby and have to visit at least once a trip. Today they have used the climbing wall, painted in the ceramic studio and had lunch. Very reasonably priced compared to other play areas. The staff are great and always have a warm welcome for us. They always appear approachable no matter how busy they are. Really excited to visit their new site in Scarborough when it opens in May. Good luck and see you all soon.

“Great on a freezing day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Sat in mini monsterz while my 3 kids, 39, 9 and 6 play. On holiday and its sooo cold so this is a great place to be. Staff friendly, no time limit. Plenty for kids to do. Also for a small charge a walking wall. Other things outside to do, but too cold today. Definitely recommend it!

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. We generally find that the bigger kids (I think they're sometimes called grown-ups!) have as much fun as the little ones, especially on the slides! We're really glad you enjoyed your visit and we hope to welcome you back whenever you are next in the area.

“We took our 2.5 year old and he loved it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013

We went during the week, off season and got a great deal on the door. All of the play area is accessible to even smaller children, but I could still get through it with him too as it is well thought out and well spaced. I was quite happy for him to go round it all on his own once he'd got the layout in his head. The under 4s only play area is also large, and well spaced out with 4 levels of play space.
My boy loved it, and spend 2 solid hours dashing round until we sat down for a basic but reasonable lunch, with a good selection of menu choices. After lunch we went outside, and it was a bit quiet, but it was very early in the year. The only real criticism we could come up with was that they are keeping herd animals individually, when they could have had them all happily in one paddock, but other then we had a really good few hours.

“Something for everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

Our toddler is not yet walking, so found our half term holiday in Whitby frustrating, as she was desperate to crawl and cruise around (not something you can allow in busy cafes/galleries/in the cold, damp outdoors). Mini Monsterz saved the day! We visited twice, and our usually cautious little girl had a whale of a time. They have a baby/toddler area for non-walkers, and the soft play areas are ideal for kids to burn off some steam. The staff are very friendly, and they really seem to cater from birth to teens (and even adults). It was a shame that we couldn't access the animal park/outdoor area, but it's Feb so fair enough. It's a shame their policy is to charge for tap water, as you'd assume they made plenty of revenue on entry fees and all the other food an drink on offer!

Thank you for your review and all the fantastic comments you have made. It's great to hear we saved the day! With regards to the policy on tap water, I'm afraid we cannot provide drinks free of throughout a visit to us. We do offer unlimited play time and it would not be financially viable for us to offer this facility, without increasing entry prices. Hope you can understand this.
Thank you once again for your great review and we hope to welcome you back again in the future.
