    I visited here with my daughter this week and had a thoroughly enjoyable time. It's a relatively local attraction however it is only the second time we have been there - the first was for a birthday p...  more »

    Took my six year old here today. We arrived at half ten and were just about finished by 5pm having done almost everything! A very full day with a very happy but tired child! Including entry, lunch and...  more »

  • Great for the kids! You can stay there all day without fail especially if it is nice weather. Such a fun day and great price lile i say especially if weather is good you could go at 10 and leave at 5 like i did. Really fun
  • Indoor soft play area was a great size, but adults aren't allowed on the slides (and staff are very active in policing this) meaning that for younger toddlers it's a waste of money without being able to support them. I also happened to turn up at the same time a 'mother and toddler group' was on. I thought most places catered to both parents, but when asked if I was attending for the group, the 'mother' part was very well emphasised by the staff.
  • Quite a good day out for kids. Off peak you can use the soft play after school for about 3 or 4 quid. It's about the best soft play in the north east and they are extending it.
  • A hidden gem.. not that cheap in, but worth every penny. Quad barrel ride is great
  • Highly overpriced entry fee when you then have to pay for everything else, ie, £2 for golf, £2 skating etc etc. A very expensive day out for an average family of 4. I think they need to review their pricing structure, Dont go if you have a limited budget, once youve paid to get in, you have to keep paying for everything else. DISAPPOINTING!.
