The ‘music’ in the gym is just awful. Loud, repetitive rubbish. Who on earth chooses it? Staff ignore requests to turn down / off, even if you’re the only one in the gym. Terrible.

Fantastic soft play area. £4.50 per child for 90 minutes. Need code to enter Place is spotless. Can get hot drinks various prices. Large seating area with tables. Small baby area. One small climbing area and a larger play area. Worth a visit

My 4 year old has been a massive fan of the old jungle jack in eldon leisure, so, he was equally excited when we mentioned the new jungle jack. However, the new site doesn't appeal to him anymore. Wishing to go home after just 10...More
