As stated in the title, it is quite expensive to come here. The mini golf is great, dodgem cars fun & waterslides good, although they are extremely hot inside as they are directly in sunlight, the "speed" slide I found to make me very claustrophobic and it was difficult to breathe properly as I was coughing constantly and felt as...

I love the beach house. It has lots of amusement games. A massive carousel. Mini golf which is lots of fun. Great big water slides. dodgem cars an dodgem boats. It also has a little safe place for the littlies to play. Plenty of food and drink places inside. Great place for the whole family to have lots of fun.

Located in Glenelg right on the beach is a two storey wonderland that kept our two boys (6 and 4) entertained for two hours for $30 each. That gave us access to every activity in the facility for unlimited rides so off we went to the dodgem cars where our 4 year old was dead keen to bump his big... More

Attended a birthday party for 12 year olds. Not as expected. The place is very dated and expensive. Better options in the city. Give it a miss.

We attended a kids birthday party here and the staff were great! They were very patient and looked after all the kids well. I did think that some of the activities were a little rushed and was disappointed that they offered 7 year olds soft drink (i guess that comes down to the parents also). It was a great afternoon...

Great for a bit of fun. Mini Golf is a great full 18 hole course. Waterslides are fun, I love the fact that it doesn't go into a pool so being able to swim doesn't matter. The aracde game are good for some harmless competitive fun. All in all great for children and alright for young adults too. Worth a... More

We walked around and finally decided to play mini golf. It was great having the entire course to ourselves! It was quiet, great weather and a fun course of 18 holes. Can't wait to go back!
