  • When I write a review, I do so independently without the influence of other reviews. Location and accessibility to this facility isn't great, but when you enter, it looks the part. Not sure who wanted to play more, my daughter or me. Staffing seemed limited and possibly under staffed. But they did a great job to make us feel welcome. The facility was clean and well kept. Possibly because it is new, but nevertheless, all looked well maintained. While it seems a little out of the way, the opening hours are excellent and parking is close to the front door. I will be going back as it was priced well and kids love it!
  • Very clean and fresh looking compared to some of the other play centres I've been to. Yeah it not as big as other places but it's perfect for my 3 year old son to run around in. Very nice atmosphere too. Only £3 for the soft play area. Great price! I think I will be coming here again.
  • Poor girl was left by herself to manage the place all day. No health and safety in place. Manager wouldn't answer her calls when alarms kept going off. She had to cook, manage entry and the areas AND do Birthday parties for children. Left with no break, completely illegal. She still tried her hardest and was wonderful, but the management is clearly very poor and the place will surely be shut down if it continues. Would not recommend to anyone. She had to come into the other room and do the laser tag, leaving the whole soft play area, till and bar completely unsupervised. So many laws and regulations broken. Cupboards left open with bleach in view of children, many things forgotten. Felt so sorry for the poor girl who was clearly a great worker and was being taken advantage of. Plus for a good 20 minutes the fire alarm was blaring, the girl could not turn it off, could not serve or help new customers either because she was alone and manager wouldn't answer her calls. Manager should have been down here helping and called in emergency staff as soon as other staff were unavailable. I can see accidents happening here soon and things going very wrong and wouldn't recommend anyone come with young kids.
  • Holy cow, the laser games exhausted me LOL. For a lad in his 20s against a tonne of young children.. they know how to knacker me out. Music, refreshments and friendly staff.. can't go wrong here
  • Great little play area for young kids. It is great to have bowling, lazer and soft play in one place but it does make all 3 sections on the small side. Plus staff not able to help in all sections all the time.
