Owner description: Creepy Crawlies Adventure Play Centre in York. Play. Swing. Laugh. Eat. Climb. Drink. Learn. Slide. Creepy Crawlies play centre and adventure park in York is a great place to spend a morning or afternoon with the children,and, unlike the weather, the fun is guaranteed. York’s premier children’s adventure play park boasts almost 2 acres of challenging, imaginative and exciting indoor & outdoor activity areas for children of all ages, and a great licensed restaurant, high ropes course and nursery. A petting farm adds another popular activity in this park, so come and meet our ponies, donkeys, chipmunks and other furry things. The children are active, it's great exercise! -all the benefits of a workout with the addition of FUN!

“Great place for children on a wet day!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

This place is located a mile or so from York, near the ring road so location-wise is perfect. I have taken my 5 year old granddaughter there on a few occasions and am so impressed each time.
The entrance fee is very reasonable - and by paying an extra £1 the child gets to choose a meal and drink from the very well stocked cafe.
The play equipment inside consists of a wonderful huge slide,but there is a huge range of activities such as a reading corner, dressing up area, pre-walkers and toddlers sections etc etc.
Outside the climbing equipment is fantastic - varied, strong and safe with good surfaces beneath.
There are also animals....even a bridge with 3 billy goats who are not so gruff.
The level of supervision and cleanliness is good throughout.
I used to think I would never go near such a place as this but in all honesty I think it's amazing and well worth a visit (plan a few hours!), in good or wet weather. Well done Creepy Crawlies!

“Love It!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2012

This is only my 2nd review i've ever wrote but feel i need to share my views! I have 2 girls aged 9 & 6 who i took to Creepy Crawlies regularly. I have also taken my nephews aswell aged 4 & 1! It is a good location, easy to find, plenty of parking, never huge queues to get in, always a spare table & staff very friendly & helpful. Never had to queue for long for food & it offers a lot of choice. Prices are reasonable & the 'Meal Deal' is superb! Never had to wait long for food to arrive & its always been delicious! Especially the cakes & buns! You always see staff about, cleaning tables, running the childrens parties & generally working. There is a HUGE amount of choice of play for all ages of children! (This before the extension!) If the weather is kind there is a large sandpit & water play, swings, climbing, playhouse, animals to see & much more. Inside, whatever the weather, is a very large play area with a MASSIVE wavy slide with about 5 lanes?! With lots of other fun things to explore & do inside it. There are other designated area's, soft play, books, disco, ball pool, smaller wavy slides, football & little ride-on vehicles.......the list is literally endless! Yes, it gets very busy! Of course it does, cos its brilliant! Kids of all ages love it & if the children are old enough & responsible enough to go off & play on their own, the grown-ups get to enjoy a cuppa & chat or read the papers or magazines they sell there! I personally have never had a problem there but then i do keep an eye out for my children or if i have my young nephew with me i stay with him & never take my eyes off him! Unfortunately some kids do spoil it for others & their parents don't always see what they get up to, like running up the slides or coming down them backwards, i have often heard the staff over the tannoy telling someone off! After being a long & loyal customer at Creepy Crawlies for a number of years we have just moved down to Devon 2 months ago & do you know what? NOTHING compares to CC!! Its a brilliant place thats got a lot to offer & their prices are really good when you compare! If you live in the York area please believe me when i say you are very lucky to have CC! We really, really miss it! & i have promised my children when we come up to visit family we will definitely pay a visit to CREEPY CRAWLIES!!
