Pop-in and Play Sessions at Dragon’s Castle

Duffy and Waldo invite your little explorers to jump, climb, slide and swing at Dragons Castle "Pop and Play" sessions. Tickets are £3.50 for those under 1 and £5 for age 1 and over.

Each child’s admission ticket can be redeemed for TWO free hot drinks (tea, coffee or hot chocolate). All you need to do is show your ticket to redeem the complimentary drinks. Plus unlimited squash is available for the little ones

The play area includes a sensory area, especially for babies, younger children and children with additional needs. As part of this area, we’ve got some fantastic equipment including chrome tubes, fibre optic lighting and chandeliers and some bubble stubs and beads, plus there are some comfy bean bags inside too. We hope that by introducing sensory play, this provides a fun and engaging way for both young children and children with additional needs to be positively challenged with visual, sound and tactile opportunities to help them develop certain skills and actions. Not only that but Duffy, Waldo and Nel wanted to make sure that children of all abilities can come and enjoy the social interaction of attending a soft play area too.

Book tickets to our Pop-in and Play sessions here.

Opening times:

10am-12pm (Doors open at 10am)

1pm-3pm (Doors open at 1pm)

There are 30 places available at each session.

Conditions of play:

The soft play equipment is only suitable for children that are 4ft and under or children up to and including 7yrs of age. All children must be accompanied and supervised by a parent/guardian for the duration of each session.
