Playdays is open during school hours on weekdays during school term and shares its space with Inflatable World on weekends. That means that it caters for preschool children only. On weekends, public holidays and school holidays, Playdays Lite is open, and is separated from Inflatable World.

The flooring is all soft and most of the equipment is low to the ground, except for the three jumping castles. Yes, there’s three of them!

There are numerous cubbies, heaps of ride on vehicles, two ball pits, and soft play obstacles that can easily be moved/pushed around.

Socks must be worn on all play equipment. No bare feet, no shoes. That means adults too!

Parents can join their kids on the floor or if the kids are old enough, you can just sit on the perimeter and let them roam. As it’s one big shed all parts of the play area are visible from the seats.

There’s a cafe on site and BYO food is not allowed. The cafe looks ok without being very exciting, so lunchtime is a good time for us to leave.

If you’re a regular visitor it’s worth joining Club Playdays. Membership is free and you accumulate points for every visit which you can redeem for coffees, visits, gifts and discounts.
