REGULAR EVENTS

Coming soon! We plan to host regular spots such as reduced volume sessions for children who benefit from a calmer environment plus plans are afoot for a creche and other activities.

By far the best play area I’ve ever been to, and we’ve been to a lot. There are so many things to explore and I love the interactive play. It’s very, very well designed. The menu is lovely and food is good. We spent a good 3 hours there and my 3 years old didn’t want to leave. Even my 5 month old enjoyed it.

Lovely little place, especially for kids with sensory needs. Our son loves it here, there’s lots of places for him to hide when he gets overwhelmed.
