There are 6 different zones that your kids can experience and have a load of fun.
I think we managed to see everything but the 4D cinema. Everything is included in the price too!
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles area was quite cool. Definitely a place the kids will burn lots of energy as they can Climb, crawl and explore the Ninja Turtles’ New York City like a true ninja! There’s also a fun flying ride in this area too! A bit of a warning, this area is quite dark and it’s quite easy to lose your kid even if you watch them like a hawk. I suggest letting them wear white on the day of your visit as it will be easy to spot them!
The Spongebob Bikini Bottom area is quite cool too. There’s cool games and a miniature replica of Bikini Bottom that the kids will love. Oh and Mrs Puffs boating school is a blast!
The Paw Patrol Adventure Bay was a big hit with the kids and one of the places you can meet the Paw Patrol gang! It’s like a little Paw Patrol playground. Kids will love it!

Little miss absolutely LOVED Mrs Puff’s Boating school! She was responsible for all the driving and she couldn’t get enough. My only complaint is the lack of space for parents in the ride. Its very cramped and uncomfortable. The ride should’ve either been designed to allow adults to sit comfortably or designed for kids to ride alone.
The meet and greets were pretty good too. Little Miss got to meet Spongebob, some of the Paw Patrol gang and Shimmer and Shine. She spent a reasonable time with them and it didn’t feel like she was being rushed. You are able to take your own photos as well as professional ones.
What you would expect at a place like this. Prices are okay but i always say bring your own packed lunch. There are a load of restaurants in the actual shopping centre too!
I must say the Oreo Cupcakes were fantastic. Definitely a must have!
I would give this an 8 out of 10. I think any child would LOVE this place. The different activities are pretty good. I feel like there could be more. Maybe staff led activities with the kids, a few more play apparatuses…
With that being said, this is a very new place so I’m pretty sure they will be constantly adding new activities. It’s just a matter of when!
Pricing – at a place like this specifically designed for kids, I don’t believe that adults should have to pay. It’s £7.50 which is quite a bit considering it’s one of those activities where we will be watching the kids play and not actively getting involved. I reckon it should be cheaper or free!
Would we go again?
Yes definitely. As i said little miss loved it. I can imagine this place gets quite crazy on a weekend so if you could possibly go on a weekday I would totally suggest that.
You can book tickets here.
