We had our pit stop here on the way back from Knebworth fort, which is about 15 minutes away, as I wanted to check out a a few shops (of outdoor clothes), but right in the middle of the shopping centre was this mega beast. Ay obviously got excited, and I promised if he let me shop in five shops in peace, I will reward him with this.. ta daaaaaaa…. it worked!!
They claim to be the best Indoor Adventure Playground in Hertfordshire. now, I have not been to any others, so I can not compare, but it’s definitely a good one. It has a jungle theme and your little ones can let themselves loose in this 3 tiered frame with rope walks, slides, tunnels and climbing frames that even a monkey would love. The focus is on slides though, there are three of the spiral tunnels and a straight one too. There is a separate baby area, which was nothing major to write home about
It is bang in the centre of the shops, so quite bright. Entry is limited to one hour and is time bound, so even if you started your session late, you will still leave when that session is over (wouldn’t like that if I lived nearer but it worked to our advantage here!). There were picnic benches outside the play area, which is gated, so even though there is a Costa Coffee just opposite (literally 2 seconds away, from where I could see the entire play area) but they wouldn’t let me get out to get coffee (because they couldn’t let my child unsupervised, which is fair enough but he was already lost in the big frame somewhere, so was a bit too extreme I think, but anyways….! My top tip- take the coffee before you let your child in..
I made an Instagram reel, but somehow it got deleted, so unless I go here again, you have to suffice with the only picture I have
