We arrived late morning, if you arrive around 9am you get a good price for more time, however we missed that and chose the 70 minute pass which excluded arcade machines which was fine, kids loved the squirty boats, dodgem cars and lots of rides down the 3 waterslides, most of this is indoors, fast food is standard and reasonably priced. The cost of the 70 minute pass was $38 per person - thankfully we only had 2 kids? That said the kids really enjoyed this placed so value for money was worth it.

Although the beachhouse offers lots of activities for the kids (which could prove to be costly) we opted to do the waterslides only - 12 slides for $60 - There are three different slides - from gentle to OMG I can't believe I just did that one. Lots of great fun had by all.

Stopped by for a couple of hours with our two children (7 and 5). Bought them each a 45 credit fun card after exploring all the options. Both were upset that they didn't have swimming cossies with them so they couldn't go on the water slides but they loved everything else. The blaster boats (complete with water squirters) and the dodgem cars were the favourites. Indoor play castle wasn't so enthralling neither were 3 laps on the rather mundane train. Good that they could use their cards on the various arcade games. One thing that would be helpful is a scanner that tells you how much credit is left on each card. Minor point though really. We enjoyed our time here - yes, it was a bit expensive but we all loved it. Convenient on street parking nearby too

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.
