The Play Centre was called Big Slide for a reason - there are lots of big slides. On the side wall there is a three level high wave slide with three lanes and a very steep section at the top. It feels a bit scary at the top and is fast. These slides were built in sections and you can definitely feel where some of the sections join as you come down. There is also a two level high wavy slide with three lanes. To compliment these slides is a fairly fast, short, steep (almost vertical) slide.

When you first enter the Centre you feel that it is small but there is a lot of stuff here. The spacious area for under 4 year olds is fenced with a safety gate and has a jumping castle, play house, lot of ride-on bikes and cars. There are also five tables in this area.

The main structure has a very large inclined wall with rock climbing holds, lots of levels, obstacles, Burmese bridge, two tunnel slides which go down one level, a two level high spiral slide, ramps, moving hanging disks, helicopter cockpits and jumping castle.

There are four fairly simple party rooms separated by lowish walls with paintings on the rear wall.

On a warm day it was very hot inside since cooling relies on some fans above the seating areas. The higher up you went the hotter it become. Service was slow and inattentive and the food was expensive. This is a place where you come for the equipment and not the service.

The surface of the floor was artificial surface used for playing sports on and wasn't very soft for kids to crawl around on. There were old newspapers and magazines available and a TV near the seating area. Toilets were clean and well maintained.

This centre is convenient for us but unfortunately the customer service is not good. The man behind the counter is very unfriendly. There is no food available that isn't white bread, deep fried or filled with sugar. But you're not allowed to take your own food for your kids. The play area for under 4's is quite good but it's not too clean. And they advertise their closing time as 5pm but frequently close early. Could be a great place but as it is, it's not worth the $8. :(

Terrible customer service!! What a rude and discraceful man behind the counter. Training in customer service needed urgently.

Admission price for my 16 month old was $8!!! The area for toddlers was poorly set out, dirty and filled with dated, broken equipment. I was less than impressed and would only recommend this place to folks with older kids as the slides looked fantastic. Toddler area was a thorough disappointment and I felt ripped off. The free playground at eastland is far cleaner and more entertaining.

The facilities are good even though it was cold. The staff were nice. My main issue is food price. $4.80 for 2 slices of fairy bread is outrageous. Especially when you take four kids. While I liked the place this has put me off going more frequently.

I agree with funlovin! Service is ridiculous! especially that rude woman at the entrance! Prices are unheard of, I mean $8 for a sandwich my 2 year old son could make, definitely NOT "fresh" at all. Also the coffee is like poison

Maybe ppl like yourself should not stay at a playcentre for hours and only buy a babycino. You forgot to tell everyone that admission for adults is free and babies under 18 months are also free . I have been going there for yrs and love it. U r right it is a little expensive on food but its fresh and I found the staff friendly.
Funlovin      Posted:    11:29 AM May 6, 2012

Customer Service is a disgrace!! No fruit to buy, or healthy snacks.. Babycino is a rediculous $2.20.. All in all, a bloody rip off!!!
