Advantages Lots of fun for children, can buy food there
Disadvantages Quite expesive to get in for older children and to buy food
When I heard a few years ago that there was to be a soft play centre opening up on the industrial estate in my town I was over the moon. I don’t drive and have a young son and this meant that there would be somewhere to take him that was in walking distance. This play centre was to be Runamok. It is situated on the Carrs Industrial Estate in Haslingden, Lancashire.The centre is actually 12,000 square feet and is suitable for children around 11 years old-now of course when I say this I know we have all taken our children down the big slides haven’t we? Surely that isn’t just me!!!
The centre is open from 9.30am-6pm Tuesday to Sunday.
These prices are for a two hour session.
When you first enter Runamok you are asked how old your child is and for your post code and surname. You are printed off a small ticket and on that has a number. This number correlates to where your child’s shoes are being stored which I think is a good system in theory although I am well aware that this system allows the owners to track who visits and how often! When you are leaving you can hand the ticket in or just tell the person behind the counter where your child’s shoes are.
There is a toddler section which has a couple of crazy coupe cars which you can drive through the “garage” and pretend to fill up with petrol. Then there is also a smaller section which has a mini padded slide into the ball pool. Again there is a sign up to say this is for toddlers but you will sometimes find some of the younger pre school children seem to dive into there. Near this section there is also a Bob the Builder ride but I believe you need to pay 50p extra to have a go on that.The main section of the play centre is for the older children and I really do think this part is fantastic. In this section there is a huge blue wavy slide which I have been on many times! Sometimes it can go very fast as well especially if you are wearing leggings!
There is a ball pool, a small aerial slide and a dark wavy tunnel slide. As you are finding these main attractions in the play centre there are padded stairs to climb, and little activities to do on the walls if children slow down enough to check them!
