Baby Zone

Suitable for babies under two years old where supervisors can jump inside, interact and have fun with their little ones. 

The area is open. Making for easy supervision and plenty of brightly coloured soft play structures, balls and building blocks to keep the inquisitive minds of your little ones busy.

Toddler Zone

For the little ones who are a bit more stable on their feet. Perfect for children under 5 who need less hands on assistance from supervisors. 

There’s plenty of exciting soft play equipment to climb on, slide down, a ball pit and interactive play panels to keep them entertained for hours. Depending on your child’s age and abilities you are invited to jump in and have some fun too.

Main Zone

Separated from the Baby Zone and Toddler Zone this area lets kids run, jump and climb in a safe area without having to watch for any little crawlers passing through.
