We advise that children under 4 using the main play structure are accompanied by an adult.

Children should use the toilet and wash their hands before entering the play area.


Children and adults are advised to wear long trousers and long sleeved shirts on the play equipment, to minimise risk of personal injury. Clothes should be tucked in at all times. Clothes with ropes and cords should not be worn in the play area.

No sharp objects may be taken into the play area (adults – check your pockets!)

It is forbidden to climb on the netted walls or the system structure.

We deal with toilet accidents when they happen, if this is in one of the ball pools it will be completely emptied, sanitised and every ball cleaned and dried before putting back into use. We know not all operators are this meticulous but health and hygiene matter to us.
