  • My son shared his 3rd birthday party with his friend recently. The soft play area is very clean, and certainly seemed to keep the kids busy for the 90 minutes before the food. The adult and kids food ...  more »

  • Great place, busy at times, kids really enjoy it. Cleaner than most soft play places I have been too, and there is a nice area for smaller kids. Head there early and take advantage of the quiet times. Wristband time slots in operation when busy.
  • My kids love this place! Great food and service at hand too. Would recommend especially on dark/cold rainy days - the kids get bored at home and have too much energy to expend
  • I recently attended a madhouse birthday party with my daughter and was quite impressed. My husband and I therefore decided that for our daughter’s birthday we would take her and three friends to the madhouse and buy them lunch; just a chilled out morning at soft play with her friends on her 5th birthday seemed ideal as she still finds large parties overwhelming. From the moment staff realised it was my daughter’s birthday, however, they were seemingly and deliberately hostile, unhelpful and rude. I felt as though I had broken some sort of unwritten rule by not booking one of their own parties. I would like to add that we had no balloons, didn’t sing ‘happy birthday’ etc. Despite this, the staff watched our every move and prevented us from putting a couple of tables closer together and organising bits of cake into a few party bags. In total we spent approx £70 that morning on entry, coffees, juice, lunches etc and I feel that our custom was not appreciated at all. Thankfully, my daughter didn’t notice, but we hated every second of being made to feel like we were doing something wrong simply by taking her and her friends to softplay. Such a shame as it is a good enough softplay - I won’t be returning though because we were made to feel so very unwelcome!
  • Great place to let young children blow off excess energy. Foods a bit pricey. Avoid it at busy times, as it really is "The Madhouse"
  • Lovely food, and so clean. The staff were very friendly and kept the place spotless. Definitely recommend going
