We booked my daughters 5th birthday party on a Thursday after school from 4-6pm.
When we arrived we we were welcomed by our party host and shown to the party room that had been all set up for us.
Apart from my daughters friends there were only two other children playing who shortly left so it was like having the whole place which was perfect.
Our party host (a lady, can’t remember here name) was very friendly and efficient, everything was run like clockwork.
The whole place was very clean and tidy.
Lots of parents commented on how good the food was, we had paid a little extra to have the hot buffet. There was plenty of food and enough for the parents to help themselves once the children had finished.
My daughter and friends had a fantastic time and I found it to be one of the easiest parties I have ever had to organise as everything was taken care of for us. Would definitely recommend.

Really helpful staff from first phone call to making payment, understanding our specific requirements, helpfulness and attention to our group on the day. Kids had a great time playing, well fed and bottomless water/squash to hydrate them.

We were driving up from Guildford to Birmingham so did a quick google for soft play somewhere near to the M40 - we chose Rugrats based purely on location and a mention in a Families activities website. It was just what we needed for out two 3 1/2 year olds to do to break up a very long drive.

It was pretty much exactly what you would expect from a soft-play area, and is very similar to most other soft plays. The price was good value compared to similar activities too. I liked the way the activities were in different zones - under 3s sensory, toddlers ball pit area, larger cage, trampolines etc. The quality of the play equipment seemed fine - all the children playing were enjoying themselves.

Only slight negative was that we would have ordered food, but we didn't realise the kitchen shut at 17.00 - I couldn't see any signage about that, and there wasn't any sandwiches either to buy at that time.

But over all, very impressed and we ended up staying for over 2 hours.

Thank EmmaBW

Hello Emma,

Thank you for taking the time to write your review. We do stop food orders 30 minutes before we close the centre, although there are still hot and cold drinks, cakes and other snacks including children's snackboxes available until we close. I will take your feedback on board and look at making this clearer to our customers going forward.

Kind Regards

Christopher

I have been to a lot of soft plays but this is one of the nicer ones. The range of activities is good. The food isn’t brilliant but fine enough. Staff are friendly and they have a fun trampoline area.

Hello Preetie,

Thank you so much for taking your time to write us a review. I am really pleased to hear your comments about the team, and that you enjoyed the centre. Coming from a catering and hospitality background I would hope you would always find our food to be excellent, it is simple meals but we always try to source the best ingredients and our chefs take great pride in what they prepare, I hope we can wow you further on the food front next time, not knowing your tastes it is a little bit of a stab in the dark to make a recommendation but personally I love the club sandwich, if it sounds like your sort of thing maybe give it a try next time.

Kind Regards

Christopher
