Had a soft play party on Saturday and wanted to say how easy the whole thing was. From booking online to ordering hot food for each child. I was especially impressed by Doug our party host who was fun and helpful. Our little girl had...More

Try and get a refund! Going once is bad enough and I only paid £10 for my family of 4 as it was a Facebook offer! I’ve just posted a review from my visit today on the main page that should appear shortly.

Yes lots of animals to see and hold, you can also take him/her on lots of rides if your holding them, a great soft play area and a few nice outside play parks.
