Wicky's Play Factory

Step inside the play factory and a whole world of kids’ play awaits. We have super-fun slides to whizz down, tunnels to climb through and giant ball pits to launch into!

Wicky’s Play Factory isn’t just a fabulous children’s soft play area, there is also a café for the grown ups to relax in. You may love it so much that you want to hold a birthday party there and that’s possible as well!
