    Kids loved it!!! We didn’t have the opportunity to do the outdoor activities as it was wet, and windy but we thoroughly enjoyed the indoor play. Kids favourite had to be the amazing play barn with tiny village and huge slides. Was impressed by the hand sanitizer stations and the regular thorough cleaning my staff. Will definitely return!

    Fantastic pumpkins A fantastic afternoon picking our pumpkins and carving them. Can't wait to bring my grandchildren to the play barn. In these crazy times we find ourselves in, this really felt safe and normal. Credit to everyone involved.
