As interstate travellers Beachhouse just works for the kids. Some great eats within throwing distance, make it a day out.

It was obvious that there is really poor management in charge due to how unorganized they were with incorrectly booking our party. The party host saved the day, working extremely hard with no help from other staff to set everything up and make sure everyone was happy. If your booking a party ask for host Johno.

This is a great place & is so much fun for the kids it does cost a fair bit but when you plan it for a treat like a birthday then it's justified

We had my child's 10th birthday party and it was amazing! The party host was amazing, he looked after everything and made sure everyone was smiling including parents and gave us so much more then just a regular party.! I think his name was John or something but I definitely recommend Beachouse parties especially with our host!

Staff lack customer service skills. No smiles, no thank yous. Toilets should be monitored and cleaned better.

We took our 13 year old son and 5 year old niece here to kill sometime before an appointment and we had so much fun. Lots of gaming machines to choose from and rides and play areas for little ones and even a mini golf, lots of fun for all different ages. Cant wait to bring them back in the... More

The kids enjoyed their $40 gift card but things were a bit expensive and $40 didn't last very long. Staff seemed to lack personality almost to the point of unfriendly (except for 1 - I wish I knew her name)

Fantastic value if you get the 9am time card (2 hours unlimited / $30 each). My 8 year old loved it (so did Hubby) and they didn't get time to do everything. Will return when we are in Adelaide again for sure.

Glenelg in Sth Australia is the premier seaside resort. As a local of many years standing I love the vibrancy of the place. Lovely beaches, wonderful restaurants and great shopping precinct. Something for everyone no matter what age!

Took grandchild there. Lack of communication, paid set fee for "everything" for 2 hours only to find "everything" not included. Not particularly good value. A few safety issues were evident
