My son Daniel was 9 so it was time for 8 of his friend's to enjoy his party with him, we had been to mini monster's last year and thoroughly enjoyed his laser party so we went again. They close the wacky warehouse at 5pm so you and your party have cart-blanch for approx 2 hours. The kids get to... More

We've been coming here for years and it still satisfies our children. We started coming when they were babies and they are now 8. Adults can even have a go on the giant slides. It's a great stop off for lunch while the kids play.

We have been to many indoor play area like this, but the added attraction of this one is the slides. We travelled 45 minutes from home to Mini Monsterz and were disappointing. The play area is not very big compared to others, but the slides make up. Or they would if they were actually open. Only 2 of the 4... More

We remember your visit to Mini Monsterz clearly. It certainly stands out in our minds. However, I would beg to differ with some of the points you have made. We are disappointed you thought Mini Monsterz was small. We are, in fact, one of the biggest soft play centres in the area and one that many customers feel happy to... More

As any regular visitor to the east coast of England knows, you have to have realistic expectations about the weather. With that in mind, it is always wise to look out for indoor activities, however rosy the weather forecast may appear, especially if you have young children. Mini Monsterz, served our needs perfectly.

On the really wet and miserable day we took the children to Mini Monsterz Ruswarp. On entering we realised that loads of other family's had the same idea so we had to queue for a while. All the tables were full but we were told to wait to be shown a table.We didn't have that long to wait. The children... More

My kids who are 6 and 9 loved it - plenty for them to do and seemed well run and maintained. Staff were friendly and helpful.

No need to charge adults at all that's just greed. Also sad that none of the bigger adventure slides were open when we went. After an hour mine wanted to leave due to this. Can see a few hours fun if it was properly opened though. Sadly you don't find this out until you enter.

Thank you for your review, although we are somewhat baffled, since you have decided to write a poor review for both our Mini Monsterz Whitby and our Mini Monsterz Scarborough site, yet we do not have any records to suggest that you entered both locations. Yes, we do charge a minimal fee of £1 for adults, although this is not... More

There are quite a few soft play centres around where we live, but usually we choose to take the 40 minute drive to Mini Monsterz. My partner loves it because he's allowed into the play area with the kids (some people never grow up!) Its a very large indoor play area and very clean. The staff are really fantastic and... More
