The place itself is good but very expensive. We brought eight kids and the staff were not helpful and spoke to the kids in a very angry manner. Would not return.

Hi Ecckelly, We always try and give the best experience possible to all our customers and I am sorry to hear you were unhappy with your experience. Firstly just as a matter of practise within Pure Skill, we generally do not "freeze time cards" purely because our system is not capable of making our staff aware how long is left... More

We saw an ad for this place in a hotel brochure and our kids (10 & 11) begged us to go. We weren't going to visit since we were visiting from the US and thought we should stick to historical and cultural sites. But, with a somewhat rainy day and continued pestering, we decided to go after all. We weren't... More

Had a great couple hours trying our skills at 10 different sports. They have cages for each of the sports and you have get as many points at each sport- kicking soccer goal or matching baskets in basketball. Staff was very helpful. The whole family had a great time!

Great few hours spent here. Really good fun for all the family from 10-12yrs to 80. Easy to find and in a good location if you're not from the area too. :)
