We hadn't been for a while and I won't return after our visit earlier in the week. We went on a gloomy looking day seeking indoor activities during half term. I don't think it's been cleaned since my last visit (probably 2/3 years ago). What a shame - when this place opened it was really well looked after for the... More

Standard soft play area, the kids love it. It's a bit grubby but no worse than any of the others. The thing that annoyed me is the 25p charge on all card transactions below £5! Totally unnecessary. Will take cash next time. Also none of those spoon-straw things for the slush puppies.

The toilets were leaking and the floor was wet, I didn't say anything as didn't want to embarrass the party girl's mum. Cold food - pretty standard sarnies n crisp's. Hot food lovely, a... More

Took my 3 year old and 1 year old here on Saturday to keep them busy whilst the mrs went around the shops. I normally take them to Monster Mayhem which is down the road in star city. It was very busy with lots of kids running around and this was around 11.30am. The place is small but had a... More

Gets so hot inside not a passive amount of space and the toilets could do with a decent clean we've been invited to couple party's there food isn't great! Probably why they feed kids free after 3pm.

Went with my 7 yrs and 1 year there. The moment we stepped there I felt a peculiar smell inside maybe it was food or something but personally I didn't like it.To be honest I was not so impressed going there as I have been to other soft indoor plays aswell.The place didn't look clean n tidy to me plus...
