Review:


Billy Lids is an interesting, well run Play Centre set in an old hall with nice high roof which helps to brighten the play area.

There is a decent main climbing structure surrounded by netting on the sides with a number of shortish tunnel slides, one decent spiral tunnel slide, stepped twisting levels to climb up, soft inclined ramp and enclosed bubble pit. Access into this area for parents is quite difficult and if little Johnny gets stuck and starts crying, then he may be left to his own devices to extricate himself. Next to this is a colourful plastic structure with steps and two slides.

There is also an area with a large air jumping mattress with mushroom obstacles, an air hockey table (free to play) and table soccer.

When a bell rings, all hell breaks loose and kids scramble to get in the queue for the circular beetle ride. There are four colourful beetles (four kids per beetle) which go round in a circle and move up and down as they move around the circle.

There is a separate area for younger kids which is separated by a wall from the main area and includes a kitchen, rollercoaster cars and various ride-on and push type toys. This area has a padded enclosed area within it for very young kids. There is a separate room for children under 2 years old with ball pit, childrens book library and a play structure.

There are plenty of tables spread across the different areas. Party rooms are located at the ends of the main hall. A nice touch is that shoes can be kept in little storage boxes in a special corner near reception. The entrance price is very reasonable and I love that fact that the Play Centre does not have extra games which you have to pay for separately. There is nothing worse that getting nagged to death by your kids for some money to play these games. If I pay an entrance fee then I want everything to be included.

Parking can be difficult during the week. Staff dressed up in costumes is a nice touch. It is not easy to keep an eye on the kids since there is a wall between the two main areas. The Centre is customer focused, and the staff are attentive and tables are cleaned quickly. There are even a few chill-out couches in one corner if it all gets too much for the parents. The toilets were a bit battle scarred on the walls but clean enough.
