“Fun for young kids...advoid food, needs a clean”
Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

Nice play center. My kids had hours of fun whilst me and my partner watched on with a cup of tea. Keep away from food, expensive for what u get and close to the sell by dates. The area could also do with a good clean, specially the nasty toilets.

Helpful?

“It is what it is”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

The play centre is good but could do with a clean, lots to keep children entertained and suitable for a wide range of ages. Fine for a children's entertainment.
However, avoid the food, I ordered chilli and chips, the chilli was frozen inside. Awful.
Sausages are clearly very cheap and the chips are soggy. Thought I would stay to eat and treat the children but won't bother in future.
They don't allow you to bring you own food in like some other local play centres which is a bit rich considering the food is so poor. Also I wouldn't mind so much if they offered a healthy menu but its all chips, burgers and beige rubbish. Oh and watered down 'cola'.

“Fun for kids, but avoid food.”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

This place is overall ok, my children enjoy going and it does tire them out.
The toilets do appear in need of a really good scrub and i was not impressed when we ordered £25 worth of food and drink only for my child to receive a burger bun with mold on.
I will visit again with my children but will be avoiding the food there like the plague.

“Loads of fun for my son”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Have been going here for years and it's never dull for my 6 year old (who has been coming here for 4 years or so).

Birthday parties are always good here and the staff are friendly.

Worth the visit with your little ones.
