  • Popped in there today after a busy day shopping with the kids to have a run around whilst us grown ups chilled out with a hot drink! First impressions were not great, building looks run down and in need of a good lick of paint. Guy on reception was extremely blunt and unhelpful. Was told there was only 45 minutes left of play time which we was more than happy with as the kids were pretty tired but after asking for a slight discount on the admission price he rudely said no and demanded full payment. If I had known what state the place was inside I would have immediately declined and left. Every single table was filthy, food all over the floor despite plenty of staff standing around watching the clock. Decided to just grin and bear it and the kids went off. The only reason I've given it one star is because the activity section was fairly large with plenty of choice for the kids. Although after 15 minutes my son who was enjoying the slide section came running over saying it had been closed because the staff member needed a break.....there was only 20 minutes left before the place shut!!!! We then ordered a quick hot drink....do not order hot chocolate....was absolutely vile. And after seeing the state of the kitchen I most certainly would never eat food from there (although I never would return) also be aware they charge for tap water.....what an absolute joke! Both myself and my friend are both pregnant and needed the toilet but the staff had closed both ladies and gents so was directed to a single disabled toilet that had a lock that barely worked, cold and filthy! Needless to say we will not be returning and I advise anyone that wants to take their child to a clean and safe environment to steer well clear!
  • I love activity world but one female member of staff could do with some training on people skills and how to interact with patrons.
  • I went there numerous time with my son and in short it is spacious and there is plenty of various activities to keep the little one occupied. A separate bit for todlers with it's slides and soft play area is there and does what. Cleanlines is acceptable I could not fault it when it is concerned. The place gets busy at times especialy weekends though this is to be expected given the nature of the business.
  • Firstly we were made to wait at the door as a couple hosting a party were being seen to: the lady just disappeared with them leaving us to wait with an excited 2yr old for 10 minutes, no apology. Then told they only accept cash, no cards: the size of the place you'd think that card payment would be standard these days, but no. Once inside, we found a table that we had to clear ourselves, and the seating area generally unclean, with food left all over the floor: staff don't seem to bother clearing up at all. Many of the decorations are filthy (umbrellas hanging from the ceilings covered with a THICK layer of grey dust for example). In the toddler area, a lot of the toys were sticky and generally unclean. It doesn't look like the toys get cleaned often enough (at all?). I've been to many soft play areas, and this is by far the worst. We won't be going back.
  • Okay soft play area. The only thing I don't like about this place is the location since it is in a industrial area.
