Staff a total joke. My friends child was told she was not allowed back into the play area due to allegedly biting another child even though no questions were asked (She didn't actually vote said child she pushed him off her as he was hitting her). That wasn't the worst part. Said child's grandmother then decided to come over and... More

Our two sons , 3 and an 18month old , had a great few hours playing here today. Really clean and staff were pleasant. Would recommend it to all with young children, a few hours of fun for them!

Factory Skate Park it's an awesome experience for parents and kids has a super friendly atmosphere, the staff is very supportive teaching the basics and right ways on the board and skates. Always with security in perspective. My kids, 8 and 6 y.o., had a great time it was their first time riding a skateboard seriously and they learn a... More

The fun factory is a place where kids and teens can have great fun, plenty skate Ramps for the kids to enjoy on skateboards and scooters. My only complaint about the place is that kids who are skating are not allowed to come to the cafe, although parents can sit there. A bit of a strange rule of you ask... More

Went here with my two children plus a friend and her two children. They loved it! I loved it as I could sit and watch as they were in the play area, and you could see the whole thing, no where for them dissappear! It was a reasonable price for entry, and the price for food was great! A great... More

Large three level soft play area, really wore out the kids - they loved it. Did have to wait about 20 minutes before being let in as it was very busy. It was the summer holidays though.

When we entered there was a small queue so we decided to wait, I wish we didn't. My pregnant friend and I waited just under an hour. The staff didn't come and explain why there was such a long wait. We only waited that long as kids were committed. The staff had no people skills at all! Not one of... More

Took a wee trip with my 6 month old and a friend and her 5 month old and booked the sensory room. Was lovely and quiet - we were the only ones in it, which is a seperate room away from the main play area. We could lock the door too to make sure it was just us, which was... More
