As a frequent visitor of soft play centres all over, we visited this one for the first time a today and I felt compelled to review this great place! Absolutely perfect for younger children. Mine are 22mths and 4. It's not huge, but there's so much to do. Excellent use of the space. Great food and really nice friendly staff... More

Just got back from a Giant Sleepover at Monkey Bizzness in Hockley, the girls had a excellent time, and being with the old girls they would not be able to take part so when they open the doors to organisations they do enjoy themselves. We also did 4 Guide enrolments and 2 Brownie Enrolments too and with them coming down... More

We visit weekly after attending a class, my son is 18 months old and he loves it. I find that compared to other soft play centres in surrounding towns, monkey bizzness has far more options for little ones to play without the risk of being knocked over by older children. There is a whole separate area with climbing and slides... More

We had a party here today for our son and it was brilliant. The facilities and play areas are excellent. Usually places like this are filthy but this venue was spotless.
