“Amazing play area!”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

Maybe it didn't suit me as an adult, but it kept my children busy! I'd recommend creepy crawlies for birthday parties or a chAnce to ice skate in winter! What an adventure! They don't just have a play area, that's what I like, we stayed there for hours!

“Great place - would highly recommend!”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Started going here about 6 months ago, our little monster completely loves it. He has so much fun and I am happy that it is a safe and clean place for him to enjoy himself.
Staff are friendly and helpful, food is nice and entrance price is super reasonable.
So gutted we missed the Halloween party tonight as we have a bug but will be back again soon! :)

“Very good”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

We have been here a few times now with our two girls (7 and 4). They love it. Perfect for a wet weekend day when you've already done the Railway museum. We allow 2 hours here and sometime have lunch.

The soft play area is very big, lots to do on it to keep them amused, and importantly very safe. We get the odd friction burn on the slides but thats not the attractions fault. :) The soft play centre looks well maintained which is good.

They've recently expanded down the site and added in a lot more seating behind the play area as well as a mini assault course blow up 'thing' for slightly younger kids. My four year old was perfect for it. The additional seating is very welcome and very underused for some reason.

They've also expanded the outside with some aerial adventure stuff which we did not try.

The toilets are clean and appropriately sized for younger kids. They have nice touches such as stuff to stop little fingers getting caught in doors which is great.

Overall its very safe but also very good fun. The balance is right.

Why not five stars? The food is OK but nothing special, it appears to be impossible to get decent quality food at any price in any sort play area, this was average food at slightly expensive prices. Also the ball shooting arcade was out of order. Perhaps 4.5 out of 5 is fair, but certainly not five.

However we will certainly keep going back, its not bad value and there is the added advantage of a small independent Lego shop just around the corner as well.

“Perfect day out with a 3 1/2 year old”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

This place is great, fantastic to have such a great inside soft play including toddler and baby area, football etc. Food is above your usual kids soft play locations standard. good variety of food and plenty of tables.
The great thing with creepy crawlies is there is plenty of outside space too. Take your little ones wellies to play in huge sand pit ( we alway take our own bucket too). Outside there is so much space, great playground equipment for all ages,sandpit and then also a variety of animals to look at ponies, rabbits, goats etc.
This is a favourite place of ours and will continue to go back as plenty to do as your kiddies get older.
