This is the perfect place for a rainy day when you need to get the kids out of the house. Our kids are 2 and 4 and they both love it. Is a bit limited for really young kids, but for 3 year-olds and up there is heaps to do. They even cater for adult groups...

It's not the cheapest place, but it's much better than the compeating indoor play places. The main thing is that it's not so noicy and they have much more staff. The staff is fantastic, friendly and helpful. The food is better than expected for a place like this.

We have the rechargeable cards, and if you only use the play castle, it's not very expensive. The cards don't expire as far as we have discovered, and we have gone here for over 2 years now.

Don't miss the face painting. It's $4 and the kids love it.

We went here for some entertainment on a rainy day.

We had a good few hours but it was quite pricey. $50 for 100 minutes is pretty steep, especially when you have to wait in queues for some of that time and anytime you actually spend on games or rides (or in the bathroom etc) reduces the time you've got.

We tried to make the most of it, however and ended up spending the majority of our time going up and down the water slides.

There's a nice carousel right at the front and a few rides inside but it's mostly about the games machines, and not all of them are included in the $50 package, but you can pay extra to upgrade and include a small number of the prizw or ticket games. You also have to use a card, not coins, for the games and if you don't have a card, you have to pay $2 to get one and if you'rein a group, each person has to have their own card, so that can add up too.

There is a "play castle" that is just like any number of play centers and outdoor mini-golf which are both ok.

There is nothing there for smaller kids, though, which is disappointing.

For a once in a while thing it's pretty good, but it's not something you could do very often!

This is an indoor amusement center, focusing on a variety of entertainments for younger and teenage children.

Alongside is a smallish Ferris wheel.

It's located adjacent to the Glenelg beach and jetty.

For tourists, it's readily accessible from the city by tram- about a 20 minute trip.

It can be expensive- each amusement is pay as you go.

For the target audience, it's worth a visit.

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