This Play Centre has nailed all the key elements - spacious car parking, a clean and bright environment, fun and colourful birthday rooms, good play areas with interesting elements for all ages and plenty of seating with visibility of the play areas.

The main play structure has three levels and a good range of slides and other activities. On the right side are two steep slides, a four lane wave slide and an inclined walkway with soft log steps to reach the top of the slides. The wave slide has a lot of horizontal sections and is therefore quite slow. If you want to ramp up the excitement then head over to the two steep red slides.

In the centre the ocean theme is dominant with an inclined submarine with climbing holds inside and a big shark with an open mouth (which you can get inside). This area also has a spiral slide and the battle zone with plenty of cannons to fire soft balls. There is an air conveyor system to transport the balls up to the higher levels where eight cannons are located (enough to restart the Battle of Waterloo). The lowest level has a huge cannon and a device which pushes balls up into air. One of the air conveyor tubes empties balls in a basket which periodically empties balls all over everyone standing below. The structure around the battle zone area has plenty of soft ramps, tunnels, Burmese Bridge, hanging obstacles and spinners. There is also an enclosed basketball area.

On the left hand side is a huge inflatable jumping pillow in the shape of a crocodile's head. Given the ocean theme and its size, I'm guessing it must be a salt water crocodile. Climb up the back of his throat (don't knock your head on his epiglottis on the way up) and be careful of his razor soft teeth and tumble down to the flat bouncy area of his tongue. Feel free to jump against that hemisphere shaped yellow abscess on his tongue.

On the left hand wall is an enclosed toddler area with safety gate for kids under 4 years of age. This area has a soft climbing structure with dual slides, ramp and steps plus a jumping castle, a piano on the floor which can be used to create music (although I didn't hear any soft lullabies emanating from this area) and a cute carousel with four soft horses.

Next to the toddler area is a semi-circular shaped area for babies with soft walls piled with big soft shapes (it's never too early to teach your child about trapeziums) and two educational panels on the walls (nor is it too early to teach your child about mathematics).

Around part of the structure is a road where kids can ride supplied bikes and trikes. The layout for this is better than at many other Croc's Play Centres because there is a degree of separation from all the other kids and there is less chance of a rider crashing into some-one.

On the right side are five party rooms which are beautifully decorated with fun and colourful animals and characters.

In a corner next to the party rooms is a disco and karaoke area. We visited on a Friday evening and the disco for little kids was run by a very enthusiastic and friendly lady from Bop Till You Drop. It looked like all the kids were really enjoying the experience.

At the front of the play area are a huge number of tables of different sizes. You can combine tables to suit and also reserve tables in advance.

There is a lot of undercover and outside car parking available. A magazine rack full of magazines is provided for parents.

A sign on the wall says "Have a snappy day". I think kids will be rather happy to come here and parents would definitely not be snappy.
