What a fantastic birthday party Monkey Biziness put on yesterday for my daughter. Lovely facilities and happy staff. Great value for money and my daughter and all her guests were over the moon with how it went. Thank you for a memorable afternoon. :-)

At first it seems big, but when you enter it's really small and is practically the same things repeated again and again and again, with like 3 slides. It seems like a land of wonder until you go inside. It's disgusting, filled with dirt and...More

This seems like a land of wonder...until you go inside. This place filthy and unclean as well as the horrid smell of little feet I'm pretty sure they don't clean as well as they say they do. I don't want my kids crawling around in...More

Absolutely gross. Older children kept coming in to the baby play area (0-3 yr olds) leaving the gate wide open. No one was monitoring this. Please implement something before an accident happens because of older children running around in baby area.

I was surprised to see a previous reviewer state that the place needs a deep clean as I have to say when we visited it was spotless! This is by far one of the cleanest soft play areas I have seen and unlike most, there...More

We chose to have the Early Bird party on a Saturday in August, By having the party 9-11am, you get the private hire for the first hour which was fantastic for us. The staff were ready and waiting for us as promised 5 minutes prior...More

The centre's play equipment itself is great. Better size than most, though FAR from the best due to staff. First visit today and card machine was down, one till open and absolute chaos at the counter. Queued up to order drinks, and rather than allowing...More

Soft play are is very good for babies. However older children kept coming in, staff weren't paying any attention and sadly some parents didn't have the decency to supervise their own children. There were quite a few babies inc. mine, they were almost stomped over...More
