Reviewed August 2, 2014 via mobile

Just had my first visit here. There are pro's and con's to this place.
Positives are:- it's clean on the play area, wide selection of cold and hot drinks and nice coffee, big jugs of juice are great, they do meal deals, kids loved it, lots of slides and toddler area great and big ones not allowed in, staff are very helpful and kind, free coffee on first visit,

Negatives:- overpowering stench of disinfectant, both doors wide open as it was warm so not safe at all, kids can just run out, the long talk from Keith was quite daunting and unnecessary, he thinks he's funny bless him ), tables we're left uncleared for over an hour which made it look very messy, it was roasting hot especially up in play area, seating area very cramped and cluttered.
Overall it was ok and kids did enjoy it, however I couldn't take my eyes off the kids for a second just in case they took a wrong turn out of the doors. The long talk to me and the kids wasn't necessary either!! It's worth a visit to make your own mind up, I'll probably visit again

I choose to have my sons first ever birthday party at pirates cove barnsley it was wonderful the staff were fantastic with the kids and made us feel more than welcome they were funny and down to earth, the play area was fun and exciting with lots of different places to go the slide from the party room to the play area was really fun I even tried it myself along with a few other adults ( which is always fun and cool in the eyes of the kids around) The kids were always occupied with different activities therefore was worth every penny and even more just on the sanity of the parents.. The parents that brought their kids to my child's party were relaxed in the knowledge their children were safe.. The party bags were super cool all the kids were saying Brandon throws the best parties. Don't be shy book them u won't regret it ( get stuck in relive your youth). I would book again in a heartbeat.

We had my sons 5th birthday here back in April. I couldn't fault the place! I feel like they went the extra mile to entertain my son and his friends! The all loved the shower and dance at the end. The McDonald's food went down really well with the kids proved by the fact that I've never seen so much food eaten at a birthday party before.

Just got back from another 2 hrs at Pirates Cove. My daughter pestered me to take her back (she loves it).
Great facility and really deceiving from the out side (its like the Tardis in doctor Who ) but bigger than you think on the inside.
Lots for the kids to do and explore all the levels loads of slides ball pools and a bouncy castle.
If you want a workout as a parent do not bother going to aerobics just get in and try and keep up with the kids (you will be very tired afterwards).
I like my coffee and the food/coffee is great, as well as good seating for the adults (you can have a read of the magazines that are there as well.

If you want your children to get some exercise and have a brilliant time go to Pirates Cove........
