Kidspace

Kidspace, Croydon
Croydon, Surrey
This enormous indoor play centre is a cut above the competition, thanks to its towering wooden climbing frame, the Orb. Unusually, parents are allowed to explore alongside their children, zooming down the ‘black hole’ slide, getting lost in the labyrinth or dodging cannon fire in Thunderball City. Crazy golf, a climbing wall and cavern maze, mini go-karts and a multi-sensory play area for toddlers round off a very full family day out.

This place is fantastic!!  my five year old loves it there, as do all the children I know that go there aged from 2 right up to 10, the staff are so friendly and attentive, they do games and competitions with the children, and are always close by assisting the children,  yes it costs money, what what do you expect, if you go to the cinema you pay a lot more than the entry fee to kidspace,  the facilities are great and it is far from understaffed so you get what you pay for,  Yes some areas of it are made of wooden frames  as opposed to the modern extreme of 'soft play' but come on people!! , most of us  (that are over 30 anyway)  grew up before this whole "lets wrap everything in brightly coloured foam so our children don't bump themselves!"  we used to play on wooden climbing frames in huge adventure playgrounds  and we played without all the foam and we survived  and had loads of fun,  children are not made of glass, the odd little bump wont  break them, if anything it prepares them for a sporty,healthy and fun lifestyle in the future, and teaches them to cope with the odd fall or bump which they will inevitably get during sports at school and so on, My Children range from 23 yrs down to 5yrs, and I haven't broken any of them yet!

in my opinion Kidspace do not need to remove a thing!!   some parents need to let their children be children, remember their own childhoods along with the cut knees and bumps and bruises and realise what happy fun times they had! without foam!!  what will your children do when they fall over in the playground and there is not foam there to protect them???? lol

Most expensive place I have been in London. the food was also expensive. The coffee was more expensive than known brands: £2.45 for normal mug, which they called large!!! Me and My child paid £15.00 for less than three hours, and was told If we wanted to stay we had to extend, meaning we need to pay more. I would not mind the price if the place was child friendly or appealling. the area for over 5 years old was suitable from 10 years old boys; the place looked llike JUNGLE TREE HOUSES,: THREE LEVELS OF ROUGH WOODEN BLOCKS WITH DARK TUNNELLS!!!! My child was scared to go up and come down, as were the most kids. Most of the children stayed the ground-level playing these soft balls; they looked really bored. THE PLACE IS VERY DECEIVING: IT LOOKS VERY BEAUTIFUL FROM THE OUTSIDE AND ON THE INTERNET, but once you got there you will see the TRUE. I would advise the owner or whoever runs this business to knock down THESE HORRIBLE WOODEN BLOCKS and make more child-friendly environment. I WILL NEVER GO BACK, AND I WOULD NOT ADVICE ANYONE.
