Here at the Play Arena our vision was to take a fresh look at what a family entertainment centre can offer not only to the range of children that visit but also their parents. We believe that a play centre should be focused on 'Fun for All', with a variety of entertaining, physically challenging and mentally stimulating events for all ages of children throughout different areas of our play centre.

For the adults we have the Arena Café with good quality, locally sourced food prepared daily on site, free wifi, daily newspapers and for your peace of mind we have an advanced CCTV system displaying live footage on our internal television network and a secure entry/exit system for the building.
Please note that socks must be worn at all times and long sleeves are recommended.
We have worked very hard to create the design for this clever four level high play frame ensuring that there is a huge variety of challenges and experiences for our visitors.
We have huge slides (a 5.8m high wavy Astra slide & 5.8m high spiral tube slide) a challenging spider tower climb maze, crawl tubes, bash bags, spinning poles, rope bridges and helicopter lookout pod to name just a few.
For our toddlers we have a specific toddler area which has been put together expressly for little hands and legs to cope with. There are very special features including the smiling octopus who will give you a ride. If you fancy being a pirate or just want a ride, why don't you hop on the toddler boat? for the more energetic there's always the main soft play frame which has a special toddler area incorporated so that your toddler can be a "big boy/girl".
The Play Arena is very proud to be the first in the UK to lauch the Comfyland Experience. This unique event is aimed specially at children aged 1-5years of age and encourages children to learn through play.
It is a special opportunity for parents and carers to spend some time with their children in a unique environment promoting sensory, cognitive and musical development of their children.
This event has won several awards in its class and comes highly recommended by several educational bodies all over the world.
This event alone is reason to visit The Play Arena.
For our babies we have a separate area with specific soft smaller events designed for babies and parents. The babies also have their own dedicated ballpool.
Whether you want to drive on your own or need some help, the Arena Karts will accomodate. Come and have a go around our dedicated track. These electric karts have great fun but have safety features such as remote shut off to prevent accidents.
N.B. Arena Karts are not included in your entry fee and are coin-operated.
This is a special and fun slide. Players grab a slide mat and take it to the top of the roller ramp where they then slide down the specially designed air rollers to the padded safety zone at the end.
Climb up the large deck climb to the upper level to access the arena cannon zone. Six air powered shooters catapulting foam balls at specially designed targets, all this action takes place right over our dedicated sports arena below.
When the sun is shining you have the choice of indoor and outdoor play activities. With a range of play activities and ample seating where parents can watch their children play whilst enjoying some food from our arena café.
The food from all of our menus is carefully designed by our head chef to incorporate seasonal ingredients and is prepared daily on-site.
We have installed a state of the art CCTV system that is also linked into television screens located around the centre to allow parents/minders to keep an eye on their children at all times. All entry/exit points to the building are also secured.
The Play Arena is a 'step-free' building and has full disabled access.
