Just got back from a Giant Sleepover at Monkey Bizzness in Hockley, the girls had a excellent time, and being with the old girls they would not be able to take part so when they open the doors to organisations they do enjoy themselves. We also did 4 Guide enrolments and 2 Brownie Enrolments too and with them coming down... More

We visit weekly after attending a class, my son is 18 months old and he loves it. I find that compared to other soft play centres in surrounding towns, monkey bizzness has far more options for little ones to play without the risk of being knocked over by older children. There is a whole separate area with climbing and slides... More

My youngest son has an annual pass it's good value and he loves it down there, we had lunch and it was simple but good. Only downside was one of the machines was not working but that was it.

We had a party here today for our son and it was brilliant. The facilities and play areas are excellent. Usually places like this are filthy but this venue was spotless. They have loads to do for the kids and a great area for the adults - their coffee is excellent. To top it off the staff were all polite... More

I bring my 5 year old twins here every month now. Staff are always super helpful and friendly. Play area is always super clean and equipment seems to be very new and in great condition. Very safe environment locked gates. Good selection of food and drinks. Kids love seeing the animals each time too. Would recommend this place :D

I travel from shoebury to come to monkey bizzness even though there are soft play places closer. I find this one to be the safest as at the other ones children can easily get lost. It's clean and I have always found the food to be good and the staff are friendly. The coffee isn't the best but that is... More
