“The next level”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Have been quite a few times with my daughter who loves it. It is very spacious with modern play frames with a lot variety for the kids. The staff are friendly and attentive and there is the bonus of pool tables for the adults. I have to agree I was in impressed with the cafe and feel it is over priced. My 3 year old daughter is a big fan of Happy Town and although parking is sometimes a nightmare it is worth it for her enjoyment.

Hello,

Thank you for your review. My name is Lauren and i am one of the Duty Managers of Happy Town. We do read the reviews to see what areas we can improve on.

Since your visit we have a new chef in our cafe and added new treats to our menu. I am sorry that you felt our cafe was overpriced as we have devised our cafe so it is a great value for money menu.

“Best place to keep children entertained and happy in northern ireland”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Best place iv ever been with my children. Has everything to keep the kids happy, niteclub, playgym, singing, dancing, babyplaygym, cafe, partyrooms, library, minishoppingmall, dressup and so much more. Very cheap for a funfilled day out parents relax while the kids have a blast. A very safe fun enviroment.

“best play area ive been to (and ive been to lots....!)”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

i sometimes feel that i spend my life travelling around indoor play areas. this one was recommended to me by my sister. we travelled from lisburn to ards, and it didnt disappoint! happy town sets a whole new standard in what will be expected from these places. a massive big play area, separate 'tray' slide, smaller kids area, a dressing up area, library, pretend shop,'car wash' and stage where staff had kids up dancing and playing 'party' games.(a little too noisy!) now, cafe wasnt impressive - very small selection of snacks and basic drinks - would probably make good money if this was expanded into a proper cafe, as it was very busy, although due to the vast size of this place, it didnt feel crowded. staff where nice and very child friendly.kids loved it, so i will certainly travel to go here again!
