    Brilliant Birthday Party
    We held our 5 year olds birthday party. The staff were amazing and really helpful especially our party host Holly. The bear making was a brilliant change to the usual activities on offer and was the talk of the day, back at school. 5/5 staff friendliness 5/5 Entertainment 5/5 Good 5/5 Value for money Would highly recommend.

    Great soft play.
    We’ve been coming to Partyman Oxford since April 2022 and we are members. We always have a good time and the staff work hard to keep the place clean, safe and well-stocked. As we attend once a week (sometimes twice) we’ve gotten to know the staff very well. Today in particular we were greeted and looked after by: Stef, Jordan and Kyla but usually we see Ethan and Georgia. We tend to come at quieter times with our 2.5 year old. We enjoy the play areas but do wish there could be a few more soft play equipment in the under 3’s area. Hopefully the company will invest some money into the area soon. This doesn’t impact the overall visit. The staff are friendly, the food is cooked fresh and reasonably priced and the toilets are checked regularly too. Our daughter throughly enjoys her visits and we will return soon.

    Birthday party
    We went to a birthday party at Partyman World in Folkes Lane, Upminster. We were greeted by a friendly member of staff who then introduced us to host for the party we were attending. Our host was Fran. She took the children's names and showed us to the party room where we were able to leave our shoes while we enjoyed the soft play. Once the children had been sorted Fran showed us to a table that meant a disabled guest in our group could enjoy watching singing, dancing, cake and candles plus watching the children in the soft play too. Nothing was too much trouble. The staff on the whole were friendly and helpful, everything was catered and there was plenty of food. Allergies were also taken very seriously and every step was taken to ensure this was covered. Thank you Fran for being a fab host!

    Good and safe family day out
    In half term took family to soft play, the staff were so friendly and helpful, the venue was clean and tidy and staff were continually cleaning up after little ones without being seen. Safety seem to be taken with high regard with staff as I witness twice, where staff members had to speak to parents about their children’s behaviour, but once again this was done in a friendly and discreet manner. The little cafe had a good selection of drinks and food which on the whole was priced as expected, but once again clean, tidy and helpful staff. Excellent few hours enjoyed by all. One special message for Holly, one of the staff who went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful experience without worry. Her exemplary behaviour and kindness will have us coming back with friends and more family. We need more Holly’s in this world.

    Highly recommend - Stef is brilliant.
    Visited recently with my husband and two children (7 and 1). We thoroughly enjoyed our time there, both children had so much fun and lots for both of them to do. We were served by Stef, who was incredibly friendly, BRILLIANT with the kids and very helpful when answering our questions about food. Our eldest has additional needs, and I often worry about going to places like this due to them being busy etc, but I'm always put at such ease and we are made to feel comfortable and welcome every time whenever we see Stef, she also informed me of the SEN sessions they do which sound fantastic. Highly recommend,and can't thank Stef enough for making it such a positive experience every time we see her.

    Birthday party
    Had a great birthday party for my little girl. She and her friends had an amazing time. The staff were so helpful and approachable from start to finish. Made it easy to come in and enjoy the party. Big shout out to our host Holly, perfect host, made it clear how the party would run from the start with timings and kept us updated throughout. She was very happy and enthusiastic about it all, helped to make the party fun. Another shout out to Nicola and Tom as well with the different parts of the party.

Having loved our visit to a different soft play recently, I was really looking forward to taking my 1 year old to Partyman World as it is our closest indoor play centre.
The Facebook page shows a photo of a dedicated slide area for toddlers with a ball pit, rocker toys and large soft blocks.

Due to covid, the website states that the ball areas are closed, but everything else is open. However all rocker toys and soft blocks were also missing, meaning that we only had access to the slide and some broken trampolines with gym balls underneath. The uneven surface of the gym balls mean that my toddler couldn’t really use these, so we were only able to use the slide. Of course my toddler was bored of only being allowed to slide after a short while, so we decided to pack up and leave after 20 minutes.

I do appreciate that the government have restricted the play areas, however the extent of this was not made clear before arrival.
This was our first visit here, and we would not have bothered had we known that it would mean that it was unsuitable for younger children. To charge £6.95 for 1-3 year olds to essentially use a slide is unacceptable. When you add the cost of adult entry (£4.50), and bus fares, this was an expensive waste of time.

I’m only leaving 2 stars as the staff members on entry were really lovely and helpful. I would have liked to raise my concerns with them on the way out however no staff members were around. There was one lady serving a large queue of people at the food area, however I didn’t want to bother her as she was clearly very busy.

In future I’ll stick to travelling further afield for soft play as there are plenty of cleaner places with plenty for smaller kids to do.

Me and my son met up with some friends and came for a visit at Partyman today after them being shut for a while due to covid. I was really glad to do something inside for a change but also something that would not cost a fortune as the weather was not looking good this week anyway. I have to say I was so impressed with the 2 only members of staff that was working today Nicola (Deputy Manager) and Tom.
Nicola is ever so polite and greets all that enter not only was she seating people down but also serving behind the till and clearing the plates away etc. Nicola you are amazing and I hope to see you again in the future when I rebook as we shall definitely be going back. The venue was nice and clean and they had sanitizer on a table for kids to use which was great to see although I do make sure I walk with my own.
I did mention to Nicola that it would be good that once you book if you are still in the area as they close for a hour to clean for the next slot that if the next slot was not fully booked that it would be good if you could re-enter as my son and his friends did not want to leave. 2 hours went to quickly but they had so much fun.
Can't thank you both enough so glad you guys are open again 🙂.

From Shelley.

Had my twins party here last month it was brilliant no stress of entertaining children with games etc and cleaning up after everything’s taken care of for you . The staff on that evening were Nicole , holly, Jordan & Adrian . I took birthday cakes and napkins with me , i was asked by them if I wanted them to cut and wrap the cake which was really helpful before I could return to them with the napkins they had already done the job and supplied us with their own napkins. Nothing was to much for them . They asked our choice of about 4 party songs which they entertained the children with , the children love it the staff are amazing so friendly and put their everything into it . It wasn’t just luck of my party either as I’ve been to several now and the staff have been amazing everytime they are full of smiles and are warm and friendly even thou sometimes rushed off their feet. Would definitely recommend and have partys here again .

We really enjoyed our visit today.. on arrival team members Tom and Nicola are so happy and friendly welcoming myself and my child.
Due to covid staff are so helpful showing us to our table via a one way system and answering any questions with reassurance.. The play centre is kept clean and tidy with lots of hand sanitising stations in place and the food is great with lots of different choices from the menu.
Today was an added bonus having a visit from baby shark and Jackster, which the children loved, the staff are always prepared to go above and beyond for the children giving them colouring crayons and pictures to colour in plus chocolate bars and ballons after the session..
It's safe to say I am happy to have got a membership as we will be visiting the centre as often as we can especially when the winter months roll in.

Thank You Team Partyman ;-)

We spend alot of time at Party Man World! So much so we have monthly membership, incredible value for money. For our family of 5 we pay £12.50pm.... for admission anytime even during half term ;). We always ask our children where they would like to go and they shout SOFT PLAY, they are quite fond of Holly. She's lovely, we have astablished friendships with staff and members of the public by using these facilities. In Oxford we find there isn't much to do for younger children so to have soft play up the road for us has been essential to keep our little ones occupied during half term and in terrible weather. The staff are lovely and welcoming they go above and beyond a few I can name are Holly, Nicola & Tom. There are many activities here to keep children of all ages occupied. And the place is always clean and presentable Besides you can enjoy a hot cuppa whilst the little ones are occupied haha.

Coming to Partyman Workd with my three grandchildren was a great experience because of the care and attention of the staff. One of my grandsons is autistic and can find it challenging in a setting with lots of other people around but Holly immediately made it clear she understood his needs and established a bond with him, as well as informing us about resources and the times of specially formatted sessions. Her balloon-animal skills are awesome! Tom was hilarious as a host on the go-karts and again created a bond with the kids that enabled them to have lots of fun while keeping them safe. All in all a great team and a great venue!

Holly was very helpful. She was very good at explaining what needed to be done, was good with the children, set out all the food, put the candles on the cake and lit them and even cut the cake for our guests and wrapped it in napkins. We didn’t have to do anything but enjoy our party with our children.

The only way party man can be improved is by locking the door and setting fire to it. Utterly dreadful. All members of staff are incredibly rude, they upset my wife and were incredibly unhelpful. The food is barely recognisable as food, (think of a greasy spoon cafe with extra grease and attitude and you’re still better off than eating at party man) I wouldn’t even serve it to my dog. I could smell one member of staff in particular from 6 meters away (I won’t mention any names) Who ever cleans the place shouldn’t be left unsupervised, ever.

Please please please avoid this place at all costs!

Take your children to an outdoor park, it’s safer and cleaner!

If I could leave no stars, I’d leave -3.

Again, if you love your children and value their safety, go to the park!

My two boys and I absolutely love coming here, we've been partyman members for around 7 years and with the monthly membership it's such value for money.
It feels like coming home when we come here as some of the staff have been there for years, they are so welcoming, kind and friendly, and most of all they are so lovely to my 2 boys. My boys love to see Nicola, she always goes above and beyond to make sure we have a great experience, the world needs more Nicolas! All the staff are lovely though and i thoroughly recommend a visit.
It's always kept clean and tidy and any food served is of good decent quality, just one thing though I would love to see more variety on the menu.
