Adventure Play

Soft play is one gigantic adventure to your little ones! It’s one of the first environments your child will visit that will help them to develop their social skills, physical strength and cognitive development. Our soft play sessions encourage complete creativity to build structures and explore boundaries in a safe and controlled area. Your little ones will have heaps of fun hopping, jumping and leaping about as much as they like!

We have soft play sessions that are suitable for small babies through to energetic toddlers. Take a look at our adventure play offer across the venues and check the timetable for session times and prices. Don’t forget you can also hire our soft play and adventure play areas for your next birthday party. For more information check out our parties page.

Welcome Back FAQs

We can’t wait to welcome you back safely to enjoy soft play across our centres. From Monday 21st we will begin offering sessions at The Reef in IB Leisure and PlayBarn in Billingham Forum. Please make sure you read the FAQs before visiting.
