Mr Charles Sibley

Great place for young children to run around and also try their hand at dancing to win prizes, great venue for birthday party's but the noise is very loud

I live 23 miles away from happytown I am a childminder and when the kids are on Holidays..We always head there..it's a firm favourite with all my mindees. I have been to quite a few indoor play areas and none beat this place for price, staff friendliness and entertainment. I only wish it was closed so I could attend with... More

Absolutely love this place. Brought the kids whilst visiting family and I couldn't get over how big it is. Lots to do for young and older kids. My 10yr old loved it. Only bought snacks and drinks but have to say the orange squash was awful. The plastic beakers smelled dreadful so please throw them away. Good service and clean... More

Thank you for your kind review, disappointed that the children did not enjoy the orange squash, we use a sugar free squash and this is the first compliant we have received but it is definitely something we will keep an eye on, if this had of been brought to our attention we would have absolutely changed it to something else...

My children absolutely loved their visit here which in turn made me a very happy mummy. The lay out is fantastic and there is so much more for them to do bar the massive climbing frame. My kids enjoyed interacting on stage with the entertainment staff and playing arcade games. Food was very reasonable priced and not over priced at... More

I found it fantastic for our boys and with so much to do for babies, toddlers and bigger kids. It was also kept clean and tidy, and there was plenty of staff on hand to entertain the kids etc. However it was definitely alot pricier than other soft play areas.

Great place. Loads for kids. Clean. Nice food and friendly staff. Stage for kids to dance and entertain and prize boxes with questions around for the kids to collect and answer for a small prize ( normally a sweet).

We had our daughters birthday party at happy town recently and all the kids enjoyed playing. The food served for the party was good for the price of it and the party room was just fine. There are couple of things though that needs attention: the hot room temperature and the loud music were irritating, and the short length of... More

As a childminder I love taking my minded kids here they all love it.. discount for childminders is an added bonus.. love it especially during holiday times as they have entertainment for the kids aswell. Like dancing comps and musical sit downs and treasure hunts.. brilliant atmosphere and staff are all lovely.
