Overview

Wannabees is a unique indoor themed park in Sydney where children play to be grown-ups!! A great option for a fun family outing or childrens birthday parties. So much to do for the whole family: Watch or be part of the popular supermodel fashion parade and dancing, put out the pretend fire with real water or jump, flight, run and have lots of fun with the interactive green screen in the TV studio. Fifteen different attractions to play: Beauty salon, police and fire stations, supermarket, hospital, gym, restaurant, post office, bank.... For the ones who want to be more active a six meter rock climbing wall and gym with treadmills and bikes. Parents can join the fun or spend a "me time" with free Wi-Fi in our beautiful themed cafe with a great cup of coffee and a healthy menu to satisfy all appetites. Open seven days a week, check our website for more details. Also available for childrens birthday parties, corporate events, primary school excursions.

With 10 years old children play dates. they really enjoyed it and love them. They could play with their imagination while parents could enjoy the surprisingly delicious foods and feel safe the kids being there.

Many activities and you can easily keep the kids involved and entertained. However the level of service and adherence to their said schedule needs significant improvement. Seems to get packed and individual visitors tend to be neglected during weekends.

This place could be amazing, it just needs more equipment and activity guidance. For Miss 4 there wasnt enough to keep her engaged, she went from room to room with her friends and appeared bored. The Cafe is good, variety, price and service

We've visited Wannabees on numerous occasions and it always entertains our young sons. The centre has undergone major change since removal of the popular gym and play equipment, and now essentially caters for kids under 6 years of age. There is a good variety of...More

Ideally for kids under 6 years of age. For older children there's not enough to keep them entertained for long periods.
