“Great indoor fun for the family”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

My daughter was a bit too young for the waterslides (which looked amazing!) but she loved the old-timey carousel and ferris wheel.

“Great For Kids”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

This one is for the children, right on the promenade. Kids earn vouchers to put towards toys etc - it's a bit on the pricey side but it's a perfect place to take the children with a lovely old fashioned carousel, lots of games, and the water slides (with webcam!). Great fun for younger children.

“Fun for All”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

My daughter and I took my grand daughters (12 and 9) for a couple of hours on Anzac Day. Not a big crowd there so plenty of room and not too much noise. We enjoyed the Dodgems and mini-golf and the kids had a ball on the Arcade games while we had fun watching them have fun. Not cheap, but nevertheless they got their money's worth and we found that time passed very quickly. We spent about $75 for 4 of us to have fun.

“So loud and expensive!”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

I took my two year old son here, he was not really old enough for a lot of it and we only planned on spending time at the fenced off play area however you cannot pay for just one activity and you cannot pay in cash.

You have to buy a card for $2 then the cheapest option for us was $20 and it expired in 2 hours.

We were warned before hand that it was very overpriced. It was - and very loud.

Not a great day out
