  • I held my daughter's 1st birthday here and all I can say is they are absolutely amazing! The kids had a ball, service was amazing and staff were incredible. Thank you so much for allowing us to host this event at your premises, definitely will be recommending to all friends and family.

  • I could not talk more highly of our experience. With only a short amount of time from closing to the function starting, the team were amazingly efficient in getting everything cleaned, set up and ready for our party. Great venue for kids to have a ball, and parents to relax and enjoy themselves too. Highly recommend!
