Good bits : good party booking service. Good party food. 3 party rooms all out of the way so you feel it's private. Party room had its own disco music. Dancing area fun. Lots of stuff to do. Personally I would say at least 5 years. Under 5 it's big stuff and lazer guns etc. lot more expensive than normal play zones and think it is wrong to charge adults when we just sit there buying their coffees. But as a treat there is a lot to do for your money. I do agree that the big slide can be dangerous I saw several people go flying off it. If you are booking a party there are normally 3 parties on ( around 60 children ) at any one time plus other day visitors. Plenty of car parking spaces. Easy to get to near Trafford centre

If you agree with me, put you're review up in support

Don't go if you don't want to spend the money,
Can you not tell they have probably spent more money than any other play centre, lets agree?
Very, very impressive,

You pay for what you get, don't moan, go to free playground, eat chips

Or be amazed

The kids loved it. Lots to play on and climb around. The big slide is good fun and fast! Small go karts, lazer shooting and dancing; however it's very expensive for what it is and the prices of drinks are also expensive. Would only go as a treat or birthday. There's just as good play centres at cheaper prices out there!

Well I'll give it that's its a pretty big soft play area and it has a pretty impressive slide but is it really worth the money??.....not really, my kids would have been happy at the local soft play down the road or the park but we came and we saw and we probably wont go again unless its for a birthday party and at those prices, I'm not quite sure I know anyone who would book their kids party there.

Went last week end (before half term started). It is a little pricey to get in and I was quite surprised you had to pay for adult entry. However, once we got in I could understand why. All of the climbing frames, slides, laser quest etc were big enough for adults to get on too.
The kids had a fantastic time as did we. There is so much to do and it is very spacious.
The laser quest was a great hit as was the Wii dance area where everyone can join in.

The café is very reasonable and food is gorgeous.

Be careful on the time limit though, they can charge you more if you stay longer than the allocated period!
Would have given it 5 stars if it wasn't quite as expensive and time limit
