Tumble in the Jungle is a children's play area in the Wood Street area of Walthamstow. It is part of a youth centre called The Soul Project. It is a great fun place for small children run by excellent people. Tumble is located about half way between Wood Street station and the Whipps Cross roundabout meaning that any visit will require at least a short walk from those transport stops. It opens at 1000 during the weekends and 0930 most weekdays. Price is incredible value. It is a ridiculously cost effective way to spend quality time with children in a fun house. The generosity of the people running the place extended to this visitor when a card fault left us slightly short but we were still given entry. Parties are a common sight though presumably need to be booked quite far in advance. The amenities on-site include a snack bar with some impressive healthy options including vegetarian. Tumble itself has several different sections in what is really just a warehouse. The two main areas are for clambering and sliding. One section is designed for smaller children and includes a ball pit at the bottom of a slide. The other section is supposed to be for children from 7 and up but has appeal to those younger children capable of tackling some of its sections. Other sections include an area to walk the shells of toy cars around, a football/basketball area, and an area with two rideables at extra cost including Thomas the Tank Engine. Padding is good rather than great. A head-on collision with a padded bar still hurts but Tumble is pretty safe because it is well staffed with more than enough people walking around looking out for things happening. There are no great risks with the only potential drops being largely due to user-error associated with small climbing walls. Despite the huge amount of use Tumble is put to it is in remarkably good shape. There are hardly any areas with notable damage. It looks ok, the green theme is not especially jungly. There is excellent fun to be had here. Screaming happiness abounds throughout. That happiness is set often to some cool 70s music for some reason. Tumble in the Jungle seems to be associated with great people looking to do good for their community. There are lots of flyers and posters for various socially-minded support groups. Wood Street is far from Walthamstow's best area so it is great that this place exists though in practice it seems to draw in families from quite a wide area.
