“ Address: 68 Somers Road / Somers Road Industrial Estate / Rugby / Warwickshire / CV22 7DH / England „
The adventure zone is a soft play area centre based on the Somers rd industrial estate in Rugby just off the main rd into the cement works.
It opened a couple of years ago and to be honest although it was not brilliant to begin with it really has gone from strength to strength and is now a place that myself, my friends and family visit quite often.
Upon arriving at the play centre, to be honest you will not be that impressed as it's based in an industrial area, and from the outside although it provides great parking facilities, it just looks like a small warehouse.
Although upon walking in you a pleasantly surprised, you will always be welcomed by their front of house staff, which will take down your children's names, what time they arrived, whom will be looking after them etc. they will then take your admission fee and let you in through the gates.
Admission is as follows
2 Adults Free
Additional Adults £1.00
0 - 11 months £1.00 (Free with Paying Sibling)
1 up to 23 months £1.75
2 up to 4 yrs £3.50
5 up to 12 yrs £4.00
The play centre is very large (approx 9000 square feet) you have the food counter selling a variety of meals, drinks and snacks, lots of seating areas including table and chairs and even sofa areas. The play areas are separated into three areas really; there is a toddler area, a 3 tiered play system and then a football/basketball area also.
**** The toddler area****
The toddler area is really nice, very bright colours and a variety of things for the little ones to play with, such as,
A wind blowing machine
A ball pit
Lots of big shapes for them to dive on or make into things, such as boats and cars etc
A Rope bridge
It really is a nice area, and my little girl loves it, its also nice that the older ones are separate to this, as then the little ones can play nicely without feeling intimidated by the bigger children and also the bigger apparatus.
*** The Main play system (recommended for over 5's) ******
The main system is a three tiered system and is very large, the children love it and you have over fifty kids on it easily and it would still not be that crowded. This system consists of the following;
A four lane gastro bumpy slide
Helta skelter type slide
My son whom is six and a half loves it, he will run about for hours if I let him and defiantly burns a lot of energy whilst playing on this system, and it's also a nice variety of activities for all ages and physical capabilities.
**** The games area*****
Once my son has burnt off a suitable amount of energy on the play system he normally spends the rest of his time playing on their little indoor football/basketball area, he loves football and he loves playing penalty shoot outs on this area.
They have toilets and baby changing facilities, which although nicely decorated etc and well equipped I sometimes find the hygiene a little to be desired, although again is getting better and the last couple of times we have been there they have been spotless so I'm in hope that they have took on feedback from customers feedback sheets etc and they will now keep them in better conditions.
The food is really nice and they sell a variety of meals and snacks from items such as toasted sandwiches and Panini's and burger and chips or hotdogs or jacket potatoes etc.
There are loads of drinks on offer from lattes and cappuccinos to soft drinks and milkshakes, they also do a jug of squash for 1.00 which I think is great as the kids get a few classes of squash I think each jug gets about 8-10 glasses dependant on how full you do the cups.
They also have a variety of cakes, chocolate, biscuits etc. There homemade cakes are really nice and that is normally my preference along with a yummy latte.
The prices of the food are not very expensive and I think the most expensive thing is about 4.00 for a burger and chips type meal.
The centre is open everyday, opening hours as follows;
Overall it's a lovely place and is great if you just want some peace, sometimes I go there with a couple of magazines or a book, and chill out while the kids run off all their energy, takes them a while but at least once their finished I feel rested also...ha-ha!!! The things we do for peace!!! My friend also sometimes goes down with her laptop, they have wifi connection and it's a good way for her to catch up on some work while her kids run ragged.
They also provide birthday party packages, which they have a separate party rooms for, which I must say if really lovely and I have attended parties there a few times.
They also have special offers on from time to time with play and eat deals for about a fiver etc.
All in all a great place for the kids to get hyper and for you to chill.
