In our partners words

“I was given the challenge of finding an all-day venue for our 100 strong team, that we could use all day, in any weather, that catered for all abilities. The team at The Zone didn’t let us down! We had completely smashed the brief I was given and I can’t wait for the next one, I know who I will be calling. Thank you guys, you helped me smash that challenge and I couldn’t have done it without you!"

"I’ve visited The Zone multiple times since January 2019 when my son became more steady on his feet. I heard that there was an area specifically designated for babies and toddlers, which made me feel more at ease taking him to such a big play gym. Adults are also allowed in the play gym to accompany smaller children (this is the real reason I visit) The Rainbow Slide is our favourite bit in the whole place and my son’s confidence with climbing and exploring the space develops with every visit. Thank you for providing such a fantastic space to bring kids to burn off steam and parents to have some fun too! We always stay for lunch and I’ve not been disappointed with the price, quality or service I’ve received. I’m sure I will continue to visit The Zone for many years to come as my little one grows up and bring along more friends and family as well. To anyone who may read or hear this testimonial; if you’ve got children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews or friends with kids under 12 years old, The Zone is the place to be!
