Ruby and Red’s Soft Play in High Wycombe is relatively small as soft plays go but with the trampoline park next to it, one can not really complain (read review of the RUSH TRAMPOLINE PARK ). There is a separate baby area with foam shapes and sensory stuff, but the main three tiered frame, inspired by a space theme is divided into two sections, a toddler area and junior area.
You have the usual bits in both areas (climbing areas, look-outs, ball pits, swings and more) but the highlight for us was the air cannon. There are two of them- you can squeeze many balls into the cannon and then pop them out at the rocket/space scene. It makes a loud sound when the ball shoots so made it even more interesting. The area where the balls go is enclosed so kids can’t enter there, I suspect due to safety, but the balls are very soft, so I don’t think it would do them any harm, but health and safety these days hey.. who can argue with them
There’s a two lane curvy slide on the toddler as well as junior side, although the toddler one is very small and both are actually fairly slow.
We came here after trampolining and spend just over 20 minutes here, mainly with the cannon balls. The soft play is mainly aimed for younger children. I wouldn’t specifically go again just for the soft play, but if you have children of different ages, it will work well, to have the little ones here while the older one spend their energy on the trampolines.

🎟Entrance fee applies. Please note soft play access is not included in a normal open jump session. You must purchase a combi ticket, or separate soft play access
Please see their website for uptodate prices. Essentially, ‘Toddler Jump & Play’ ticket for toddlers to jump for an hour on the trampolines and then enjoying a session on Ruby & Red’s was the perfect combo for us
🚘 Free parking
🚻 Toilets and baby facilities
🍕 There is a cafe on the first floor but we didn’t try it. If you are not jumping and, if your kids are old enough, you can just watch from up here. They also have Crush dessert parlour too but as we were going to Hughenden Manor next, we avoided it.
🦽 Buggy accessible
The arena is 45 minutes drive from Oxford and so well worth it. Just 1 mile off the M40, the approach could not be any easier. We combined it with a visit to Hughendon Manor to make a day out of it, but you may find it less interesting than The Rye. Both are about 12-15 minutes drive away but are very different to each other. Read our review of both places and decide which one is for you.If you think something needs updating on this post, please contact us HERE
