Kids ‘n’ Action in Wokingham is a fantastic playcentre which is a bit different from your regular soft play zone. As well as a multi-level adventure zone with slides, there are lots of imaginative role play rooms including a vet’s surgery, doll’s hospital, construction site, supermarket, play cafe and fire engine. It’s a fairly new playcentre which feels very clean, fresh and innovative.
Kids ‘n’ Action Role Play Rooms
My 4-year old loved the role play rooms. His favourite was the construction site room. Here children could dress up in hard hard and high viz jackets and play with pretend work tools and wheel barrows. They had lots of fun building walls out of foam bricks – and knocking them down again.
We also loved the vet’s surgery. There were lots of pet baskets and soft toys. Kids could dress up in vet’s overalls and pretend to give x-rays to the animals and tend to them with the vet’s kits.
Kids ‘n’ Action Soft Play Zone
The soft play zone felt very clean and new. As well as the usual slides and climbing zones, there were several cool things we haven’t seen in other playcentres. We loved the car wash with ride on cars to drive through. We also liked the climbing wall hand and foot holds to climb up to the different levels in the play zone.
There is also an indoor sports pitch with footballs and basketballs as well as a video games room for older kids.
For younger children, there was a fun separate zone with clean baby toys.
There is a cafe serving decent coffee and a range of snacks and meals. Prices seem fairly high but the food was of a high standard. We chose a real hot dog with a healthy option of broccoli and rice which cost £4.55. My son is quite a fussy eater but he enjoyed it.
A visit to Kids ‘n’ Action costs £1 – £8.75 depending on child’s age and peak/off peak visit time. Please check the Kids ‘n’ Action website for full details.
