Indoor play centres are the perfect solution for every weather situation, whether rain or shine, letting your kids run riot in a safe and fully enclosed play area whilst you sit back with a coffee sounds like a win/win to me.
Bay Play Cleveland
Located within the Redland's bustling village of Cleveland, Bay Play is an indoor play centre with a difference! Not only do they promise to entertain children aged from 6 months to 16 years with an array of fun activities, events and attractions, but they also provide the perfect environment to help with your little ones development through a variety of interactive play and movement.
Every time I've visited Bay Play there has always been a great atmosphere and the staff are really happy to help. I'm also always impressed not only with what's on offer, but also with how well everything is presented.
Play So what's there? In all honesty, as a regular visitor of indoor play centres, you'd be hard pressed to find more play options under the one roof. Let's start with the little-uns. For children aged 4 years and under, Bay Play have created a designated toddler area away from the hustle and bustle of the main play zone.
Bay Play Toddler Area
There's a miniature ball pit, climbing gym with slide, rainbow bridge and a bunch of soft play blocks and shapes, and best of all, a great barrier reef themed jumping castle that was always a hit with my little one.
Bay Play Main Play Gym
For the older and the more adventurous, the main play gym ticks all the boxes. Children over 3 years can go wild over three levels and enjoy three different slides; a wavy racing slide, winding tunnel slide, and the massively popular inflatable mega-slide. There are also a variety of maze like activities within the zone such as rope bridges, climbing areas, ball cannons and even a helicopter perfect for little pilots.
Bay Play Ultimate Climbing Wall
As well as the main play areas, Bay Play is also home to an interactive fitness centre, huge climbing wall with drop down foam pit, spring-less trampolines, a hair raising-ly tall spider tower and even a disco room where kids can enjoy regular bouts of music and colourful lights, as well as relaxing on a multitude of bean bags and watching their favourite show or mastering the latest xBox game.
Bay Play Trampolines
Eat Whilst the kids play, parents can sit back and relax with a coffee or snack from Bay Play's cafe. With a varied menu of hot and cold refreshments at reasonable prices, it's the perfect place for a mid play refuel.
Bay Play Interactive Fitness and Eating Area
Pull up a chair at one of the many tables in the main play area and keep an eye on your littles ones as they run riot. Each parent entry ticket entitles you to a free hot or cold drink and you can pick up a kids meal for as little as $7.50, so get ready to grab a bargain.
