With the weather forecast looking a bit dismal, we booked a trip to Jungle Mania in Woodley. A three tier soft play facility with a fabulous jungle theme in Berkshire. A session entitles you to 2/2.5 hours of fun in the wilderness and is great value for money.
On arrival they had covid measures in place which meant we had our temperatures checked and were informed it was table service for any drinks or foods. We chose a table, which were well spaced out, removed our shoes and headed straight in. My 3 year old was very excited to explore.
The place is like a tardis! Each time I thought we had been down every possible route, there was something else we had missed. I loved the imaginative ideas used to continue the jungle theme such as netted treehouse with trampoline.
There were a lot of ideas I hadn’t seen before in a soft play which was quite refreshing. Everything was easy for my 3 year old to navigate on his own, with easy steps to climb, bridges to wander across, tunnels to crawl through and the fantastic slide feature. He also very much enjoyed the tunnel slide slightly hidden in the far corner.
It’s a perfect size for preschoolers up to about 7 years. I was able to sit and watch him play from our table knowing he was able to find his way round easily and safely. I’m not sure there would have been enough to keep my 9 year old occupied for 2 hours.
They do also have a separate play area tucked away near the café area which is specifically for babies and toddlers which include sit in jumperoo play activity toys.
We ordered some drinks from the friendly staff. The price of the food was really reasonable and had breakfast, lunch and dinner choices. They currently have an offer for a free meal with every paying children weekdays and term time only. This is for the 3pm-5pm session.
