About Go Bananas



Here at Go Bananas we are so much more than just soft play. We offer a variety of classes to suit most ages. All classes build on the fundamental skills children need in order to grow and develop their personalities. We offer  cooking, messy play, arts and crafts, dance, storytelling, anxiety workshops, baby sensory and more. Many of our classes and events are included in standard entry.  We also offer specific play sessions for those with Autism& SEN and have ear defenders for hire from Reception. 


We also have an OFSTED registered Preschool, After School Club and Holiday Club!

Tiny Town

Tiny Town is a safe, separate environment for those young adventurers that are aged 4 and under. The area is full of smaller versions of the Aztec Adventure obstacles to help the young adventurers get ready for the challenges they may face in the future.

They can cook up a feast in Funky Monkey's kitchen, bounce away in the elephant's tummy and navigate the roads in our wide range of KiddiCars and strollers. There is also the interactive EyePlay Zone, where they can score the winning goal, pop the balloons, make the balls roll and for the budding musicians, they can play the piano keys. The great thing about Tiny Town is that the toddlers rule! Adults can enter the area and interact with their little monkeys, but only the little monkeys are allowed to play!

There is a two level frame where toddling little monkeys can practice their balance, walking over the ancient wobbly bridge. They can also test their nerve in the cavern of snakes above the underground tropical ball spring - the balls can erupt from the dormant volcano at any moment.

Our WOW area is perfect for children  to practice their fine motor skills by navigating the toy cars through the road map!  


Don't  forget to head over to Dora's disco room to boogie to some of your favourite tunes along with disco lights and funky mirrors -  its a sensory overload!


Aztec Adventure

Here at Go Bananas children can have an amazing adventure whilst travelling through the Aztec ruins of Funky Monkey's jungle home! Do you dare to ride the waves of the four lane water Astra slide?

Be careful that crocodiles don't catch you at the bottom. Have you got the balance and nerve to navigate your way across the wobbly planks, like a pirate? Tread carefully over the stepping stones and the clear glass floor; before swinging through ruins; just like Indiana Jones.


Funky Monkey is the main resident of the Aztec Adventure. Funky moved here from the rainforests of Manaus in Brazil after having always felt more at home amongst humans. Funky now has one of the best jobs in the world, celebrating parties and playing with the children that visit Go Bananas.

He can attend your child's party for an additional cost of just £25.00. Please ask when booking your party for further information.

Please note he is subject to availability.
