Can I bring my own food into Soft Play City?
We’re sorry but we do not allow customers to consume their own food on the premises.
The only exceptions to this rule are specialised food for children under 12 months and any pre-arranged situation where the customer requires a special diet for religious or cultural reasons, e.g. Halal or Kosher foods.
Can I store ice cream or food in your freezer/fridge?
No. Unfortunately, we cannot store any foods in our fridges or freezers for parties as we do not know how, when and where they were prepared and at what temperature the foods have come in. We also do not offer such storage service as we do not wish to contaminate our foods with any other food from outside sources.
We will however accept a Birthday Cake as this can be stored separately.
Can I bring my own party food?
All our parties include a cold buffet in the price. Customers who book a Soft Play party can still bring their own food if they wish, however the cost of the party remains unchanged.
Birthday cakes are allowed irrespective of the type of party booked.
Why do you charge a spectator fee?
Parents and guardians are admitted as spectators and adults who are responsible for the behaviour and wellbeing of the child in their care and must maintain supervision at all times.
We charge spectator fee for the following reasons:
- Having paying spectators is crucial in managing admissions and meeting health and safety requirements which are essential to the operation of Soft Play City. Knowing and controlling how many people are in the facility and using it help in the management of emergencies and users experiences.
- To prevent potential misuse by the public who will walk in as spectators without paying. Their dishonesty is unfair to the venue and those who pay to use the facility.
- To mitigate against concerns about child protection and for the safety of children.
- There is a cost associated to maintaining the utilities in the facility (lights, heating, toilets, cleaning) which is used by everyone inside irrespective of whether they are a participant or spectator.
- There are liability and insurance requirements - while in our facility, spectators are covered in the event of an accident connected to the use of Soft Play City and we incur costs in providing this coverage.
Are there any discounts for childminders?
Yes, Campus West operates a free annual childminder membership scheme which gives childminders free admission to Soft Play City from Monday - Friday and a 15% discount for children aged 4-8 yrs. You will need to apply for a renewable membership by completing this application form.
