The beachouse replaced 'Magic Mountain' a long time ago and with it took a lot of the charm. It is over priced and very noisy. I choose to take my kids to other places that are far less expensive and just as fun. its hard when you have a family of 6.

Our 12,9 & 5 yr olds LOVED this place. Came in school holidays and took advantage of what I think is the best value for money, 2 hour "all inclusive" pass for $30pp which is only between 9am and 11am (so plan to arrive at 8:45am to maximise your time). Non-stop slides, mini-golf, dodgem cars, bumper boats, arcade games... the... More

Our boys (5 and 7) had a great time. It's too expensive for what it is - except for the $30 9-11am daily ticket. Great mix of things for small kids: waterslides, dodgem cars, dodgem boats, arcade games, mini golf....

This is a great place to let the teenagers loose in. They spent most of their time on the slides. Mini golf, arcade games and mini boats also offered some fun. We adults left the kids to it and wandered down to the Glenelg shops and out onto the pier for some well-earned time out. A good place on a... More

This place has a great selection of activities mainly aims at children under 12 in my opinion. But the prices are just way to high. Even the claw machines are $3.50 per turn.

When this facility first opened I thought it would be wonderful, boy was I wrong! At a recent visit, at least 50% of the games didn't work!! On 3 occasions my daughters games didn't work and the 'eye rolling' teenage workers were less than enthusiastic to help! I sent an email saying how disappointed I was with the service and... More

As a family of four we visited recently. For $160 we got a 70 minutes unlimited pass each, the slides and arcade games are fantastic however the Dodgem cars, Boats and Carasoul were not operating constantly. We had to track down staff members which used up time. An expensive endeavour.
