if anyone is looking for another fun centre to go to there’s a new one well new one i heard of in airside swords great place, was packed today but ds had a ball, he got really adventerous (sp), it’s 5euro for under 4 for 2hours and a drink coupon for the kids and 8 euro for over 4yr olds……he’s gone to bed early tonight wrecked after all his running about…..they have a cafe there too lots of tables but if packed can be a nightmare, for those with older kids upstairs has leather couches large tv and so relaxing so you can sit up there, but for those with smaller kids best bet is downstairs….January 25, 2008 at 9:45 pm #53716

yeah i brought my ds there about 3 times & he absolutely loves it – says its his favourite of them all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! its so reasonable & i like the layout, the coffee shop is between the door & the play area itself so its easy to keep an eye on the kids & not worry about them slipping past you out the door! 🙂January 26, 2008 at 2:08 pm #53759
yeah you can watch them handy and alos you have to press a door open button that’s high up to get out which i great too so means they can’t escapeJanuary 26, 2008 at 9:20 pm #53766gemmalMember

We went to a party there yesterday. Facility was great but we were not impressed with the staff at all.
Great play area!January 28, 2008 at 11:20 am #53855happymumblemumParticipant
why canuck?January 28, 2008 at 12:38 pm #53871
Well firstly the staff are dressed in everyday clothes or sweats which I do not think is right. They should be in some sort of uniform with the company badge and perhaps staff on the back so both kids and parents can easily identify them in case of emergency etc etc. There was a teenage boy sat behind us reading a paper tilted back on his chair and he made us feel uneasy because he didn’t seem to be with anyone and in sweats he looked like a scally (call me a snob). It wasn’t until another teenager came up to him and they went into a locked room that he appeared to be staff. Why on earth he was having his break in that particular spot is beyond me.
Also the teenage girls who were in charge of the party were barking orders at the kids and even made us adults stiffen to attention. I appreciate what they are trying to do but there are other more creative and appropriate ways to engage the attention of young kids.
We just found them rude and lacking in enthusiasim for little people which I don’t think is asking too much.
Generally speaking the food and the party games appeared to go down well.
My opinionJanuary 28, 2008 at 1:28 pm #53876
i didn’t think there was anystaff on the floor to be honest i didn’t see any obviously now i know why not easy to identify, i thought that odd myself, usually you see staff with uniforms it was so hectic the day i was there i assumed that they were doing the parties……god sorry the staff weren’t great for the party and teenagers who are doing parties should be trained to deal with the kids, as i said i only peeked in but i too would be of the smae opinion……my ds loved playing there and would go again try not to go on a busy day as the place was manky…..
