Soft Play at Ards

Imagine a play area full of amazing playthings that combine new interactive experiences with soft textures and rich colours!

About Our Soft Play Area

There is no need to pre-book Soft Play in Ards - simply turn up at a time that suits you during soft play opening hours, pay at reception and enjoy 1 hour's use of the soft play area. 

Soft Play can be booked for parties, see booking and full details below.

You'll find our Soft Play on the Ground Floor in the complex. The facility is guaranteed to stimulate and excite young children (and tire them out a little in the process!). What's more, it's conveniently located beside our new cafe, so parent/carers can enjoy some refreshments while the young ones play to their hearts' content. Toilets are also within the area, making it a great location to spend time.

It is suitable for children up to the age of 7. 

Soft Play is included in Child Add-on membership.

Enchanted Garden

Our Enchanted Garden theme is sure to delight the youngest (up to 3 years) with its colourful scene and interactive toys including rockers, wobbly characters, a ball pool and soft brick kit - all perfect for exploring.


Aztec Adventure

For older children, up to 7 years, the adventure takes place in an Aztec themed world that includes plenty of action based activities from swing rings, obstacles, biff snakes and slippery slopes. All offer perfect stimulation for every child's imagination.
