Wannabees is a unique indoor themed park in Sydney where children play to be grown-ups!! A great option for a fun family outing or childrens birthday parties.

So much to do for the whole family: Watch or be part of the popular supermodel fashion parade and dancing, put out the pretend fire with real water or jump, flight, run and have lots of fun with the interactive green screen in the TV studio.

Fifteen different attractions to play: Beauty salon, police and fire stations, supermarket, hospital, gym, restaurant, post office, bank....

For the ones who want to be more active a six meter rock climbing wall and gym with treadmills and bikes.

Parents can join the fun or spend a "me time" with free Wi-Fi in our beautiful themed cafe with a great cup of coffee and a healthy menu to satisfy all appetites.

Open seven days a week, check our website for more details.

Also available for childrens birthday parties, corporate events, primary school excursions.

Fun activity for kids up to 7yrs. Wannabee town is set up with mini shops, services e.g. post office, fire station, police station. Kids can visit radio station or film studio and participate in fun activities like dressing up for a fashion parade. Drawbacks: Could have had more "products" in the supermarket. Crane on construction site not working. Wheel on... More

Many activities and you can easily keep the kids involved and entertained. However the level of service and adherence to their said schedule needs significant improvement. Seems to get packed and individual visitors tend to be neglected during weekends.

This place could be amazing, it just needs more equipment and activity guidance. For Miss 4 there wasnt enough to keep her engaged, she went from room to room with her friends and appeared bored. The Cafe is good, variety, price and service

We've visited Wannabees on numerous occasions and it always entertains our young sons. The centre has undergone major change since removal of the popular gym and play equipment, and now essentially caters for kids under 6 years of age. There is a good variety of activity stations, and our young sons particularly enjoy dressing up as Firemen, Policemen and Doctors.... More

our grandchildren had there birthday parties at this venue. The amount of work put in by staff was fantastic. Children get to be try out different job roles like fireman, hairdresser, model and others and they have so much fun dressing up as well. Food is provided but all children seemed to be more interested in playing than eating so... More

This is such a wonderful concept and the space provided is beautifully constructed and ample. We visited on a Friday morning and bar one school visiting it was pretty empty. The problem with going when there is school visiting is that certain areas are being used exclusively by the school and it's hard to explain that to a toddler who... More

We had been here several times in the past when it had a huge jungle gym (the last time being September last year) , and took our two boys aged 7 and 9 here today for a play on the gym. It's quite out of the way, and not cheap at almost $16 per child plus extra for adults. I... More

Wannabees is a first class play centre for kids aged around 3 and up. Our 3 year old daughter loves it and it would probably be fine for kids up to 8 or 9. There are heaps of different shops and scenarios for kids to get dressed up and enjoy. The climbing play equipment is first rate and the cafe... More

We discovered Wannabees Play Town these school holidays and what a fun time we had, both kids and adults! I recommend a visit if you are in the North Shore area for something, fun, educational and different. I would explain it as an 'Indoor Town', which has a Fire Station, Police Station, Hospital, Beauty Parlour, Bank, Gym, Cafe, Huge Play... More
