FAQs

Do you have a minimum and maximum number of guests per party?

The minimum number of children per party is 10 and the maximum is 25, unless you choose our Private Hire option where the venue is exclusively available for up to 200 people.

What ratio of adults to children is required?

We politely request that there is a ratio of one adult to one child as we have limited space in our upstairs party areas.

How do I book a Lets Explore birthday party?

If you would like to pencil something in we need to know the following information: the package you require, time and date of party, type of birthday cake (if you select the Take the Lot or Make a Bear option), name of birthday child, age, menu options, dietary requirements, contact details, and number of children. We'll also need to take a 50% deposit (once you have received confirmation).

How do I pay for a Lets Explore party?

To book a birthday party at Lets Explore we'll need to take a 50% deposit at the time of booking. The final balance is to be paid a few days before the party. We only charge you for kids that actually turn up on the day.

When do I need to confirm final numbers?

We ask for exact numbers and a guest list of children attending at least a week before the party takes place. Unfortunately, we can't accept changes after this. Siblings of invited guests are welcome to attend and will receive a 50% discount on our standard admission prices although they will not be able to sit at the party table or have party food. We do not charge for any babies (Under 1s) to use the soft play facilities while the party takes place.

Are your staff available to look after the children?

For Standard, Take the Lot and Make a Bear party packages one of our trained staff members will host the party for you. Your party host will greet you on arrival, inform everyone about the rules of play, assist throughout the session and help you and your guests to exit at the end.

How do you ensure the safety of party guests?

We take our responsibility to provide a fun and safe environment for children very seriously. As such, we have a set of rules which we outline at the start of each party. Our party hosts also give each child a coloured wristband so they are identified as part of the party. However, it is the responsibility of parents/guardians to supervise their children in the soft play area.

Can we take photos in your soft play?

No photography or video is allowed without prior permission.

Can you cater for children with food allergies?

Please make us aware of any dietary requirements at least a week before the party. We offer veggie, vegan and gluten-free options. Please discuss this with our staff at the time of booking.

Where will the children eat?

Our team will allocate you a designated party area upstairs. Unfortunately, we are unable to take requests for preferred party areas. Please note, the entrance to the playframe is shared between all the parties.

REQUEST A QUOTE

 

 

Please note that weekends are the busiest period for our soft play. Operationally your party will still run exactly the same but the centre will most likely be at full capacity. We would suggest booking a morning slot, late afternoon or midweek to avoid the busier periods, especially if the party guests are quite young.
