My kids love it here. There's a good sized area for the under 3's (although I feel the fish tank/bubbles could be cleaned/refilled) and the main play area is great for children if all ages (Mum's and dads too!) It gets warm, as do most play areas but it's a big area, the food served is a good choice and... More

We have an annual pass, and have already had our money's worth. Got young kids? Need them to burn off some energy for a few hours? Then visit gambado! Highly recommended. Can't recommend the food, it's too hot at the point of serving and the hotdogs are just plainly awful. Stick to a coffee and cake.

We were lucky enough to win tickets to attend Gambado's 10th birthday party. We were really impressed, it was really clean and spacious, loads of space for the children to run around. The staff were kind and courteous, and helped to entertain the children by playing party games. The mascot greeted the children and photos encouraged. A great time was... More

I visited Gambado's on Bank Holiday Saturday so it was really busy. There is so much space for the kids to run around, my grandchildren aged 4 & 2, could happily take off and join in. The staff are very involved and engaged with their little guests, and there were several parties going on at the same time but all... More

I took my 3yo nephew here for the first time and we really enjoyed it. The playframe for toddlers is huge and we were in there for ages, climbing up ladders and going down slides and tunnels. There is a decent sized soft play area for younger kids too. The staff were friendly and helpful and there was a good... More

Gambados is a playground suitable for many ages it has many hidden spots. It also has an arcade underneath it. For the big hungry ones there is a café where you can get chips.
