Soft Play

Our monster themed indoor soft play area gives a fantastic option for parents searching for ways to fill weekends and school holidays.

The soft play area is suitable for babies and young children and carries a brightly coloured “monster” theme. Youngsters under 8 years can enjoy a monster “gunge” wavy slide, bash bags, vertical rollers, hanging snakes, and crawl tubes with windows so children can wave to their parents in the seating area below.

A specially designed baby area includes a range of soft play and interactive features within a retainer wall which safely keeps babies contained within the area and also allows parents to sit and interact with them.

The area is air-conditioned and the play frame is visible from the swimming pool.
