“Great for primary school aged children”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

I took my 4 and 7 year olds to the soft play area and the eldest in particular had a really good time. Her favourite part was the death slide which is for over 5s. The play area can get very busy in the holidays with older children so if you have younger or nervous children its better advised on a day when the older children are at school.
It cost £4 per child to get in but it was peak time but they have offers on during term time in the mornings and after school.

“"Indoor play really dirty"”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

The place is really dirty, the carpet is horrible & all the floors where the kids/babies play is thick dust. The older kids run about with no consideration to the toddlers/babies. The actual design of the floors is really bad, some parts lead to dead ends & to be honest I think the whole indoor soft play part needs to be gutted, cleaned & redesigned.

“Fab for Primary Schoolers”
Reviewed March 10, 2013

If I were Mary Portas or John Harvey Jones I might criticise these folks for their lack of commerciality - they don't police your time in the play area (unlike many competitors), there are no party photos for sale, in fact everything there is for sale is very reasonably priced (e.g. regular-sized bottled water, £1). As a customer though this approach - and the super attitude of the (mostly young) staff - is refreshing and much appreciated.

We took our son and two friends for a 10th birthday treat. Having the small lazerzone as well as a sizeable, multi-floor indoor play area (complete with 'death slide') make this a great venue even for older primary-school aged kids. We paid under £30 for use of both facilities and spent 3 hours there. Daylight, seating, food, and even wine(!) available for the adults.
