Took a 4 year old and 8 year old to play at soft play they had good time and enjoyed themselves, spent about 1 and a half hours there. Resonable price to get in but had to pay 50p per spectator

Not worth the visit. Dirty, dark, small, untidy and rather a waste of money. The staff were friendly but the activities are completely underwhelming. When you drive in you feel like you are entering a tip. So untidy and grotty.

Hi sorry your experience was not what you were expecting on this occasion. The ice rink had just been removed from Christmas and this may have had something to do with the cold and damp. Any water inside was not from the roof but water...More
