Within the warehouse there are trampolines in various sizes, basketball hoops, a Ninja Warrior obstacle course, a Parkour Zone, a balance beam with pugil sticks over a foam pit, bouldering rock climbing and a three story soft play zone.

It is a fantastic way for children to have fun and exercise at the same time. With lots of varied activities to take part in there is loads for the children to do to keep them occupied and happy.

Why you are you a great place for educational visits?

We offer a safe and entertaining environment indoors all year round. The main purpose of the Funky Warehouse is to mix fun and exercise together to promote fitness and happiness for everyone. With so many activities to choose from, boredom is one issue you do not have to worry about.

Do you have the LOtC Quality Badge or any other accreditation such as AALA?

We are members of the IATP (International Association of Trampoline Parks) We are also registered with ABC (Association of British Climbing Walls).

What does a typical educational visit include?

Funky Warehouse has been designed to really focus on various aspects of exercise. From cardio to balancing, jumping to climbing, the whole experience works every part of the body. But at the same time infuses fun, confidence building and excitement in to the mix.

What group sizes do you cater for?

The maximum capacity for the Funky Warehouse is 80 for a group booking. There is no minimum booking size. This ensures that there is no overcrowding. Allows us to maintain and monitor safety, and allows the children to experience all the equipment more easily and freely.

Please note that we offer exclusive venue hire packages. This allows us to ensure that the general public do not use the facilities at the same time as your visit if this is preferable.

Are you happy for children to take photos, video or audio?

We are more than happy for photographs and videos to be taken on your visit. However, we ask that the equipment is not used on the activities for safety reasons. There are plenty of areas where cameras can be used around the outside of the activity zones.

What is your process for booking pre-arranged risk assessments?

We provide a full risk assessment and waivers at the time of your booking.

What is the cost of the visit?

The standard price of a visit is £10 per head for an hour. Plus £1 for a pair of anti-slip grip socks

Funky Warehouse would like to offer you a special UK School Trips discount at £5 per head or £400 for an exclusive venue hire for an hour. The maximum capacity for use on the equipment is 80. Both options still require the purchase of the anti-slip grip socks at £1 per pair.

Please quote the following reference when booking: UKS2016

Is specific clothing required for the trip

Yes. All participants on the activities must wear a pair of Funky Warehouse anti slip grip socks at a cost of £1 per pair. These can be purchased out our reception desk. In order to use the Parkour and Bouldering zones, trainers must be worn. Any other footwear will not be allowed and therefore participants will not be able to use this equipment. We also recommend that comfortable loose clothing is worn due to the nature of the activities.

Do you have first aid on site or will the group need to bring a qualified first aider?

Yes, some of our more senior staff are first aid trained and will be on site at the time of your visit.

Please list facilities available.

The Funky Warehouse has a large seating area with tables. A fantastic café with a large range of options to choose from. Plus, toilet facilities, lockers and 2 party rooms if required. Unfortunately, we do not allow food to be brought in to the site. However, we can offer specific deals on a range of food options. Or we can send you a copy of our menu if you would prefer the students to purchase items individually.

What are your disabled facilities?

Funky Warehouse has disabled access through the main door and we have a disabled toilet on site as well.

Please note that the Funky Warehouse is an Activity Centre and as such the equipment is designed for that use. As far as suitability for disabled children we would recommend that this is evaluated by yourselves to each child’s personal ability.  We often have children, and adults, with disabilities use our facilities without any issues. But the word “disability” has such a broad meaning that all we ask is that you understand the nature and use of the equipment when deciding to visit.

What are your opening days and hours?

Funky Warehouse is open 7 days a week all year round except on Christmas Day.

For school visits we ask that these are booked during term time between Monday-Friday and between 12pm and 3pm.

Do you have any testimonials from previous schools we can include?

As we have only just opened at the tail end of July 2016 we currently do not have any school testimonials. However, we have drummed up great relationship with three local schools for children that require alternative provision.

Is there anything else that you feel is important and want to include in your information?

The Funky Warehouse has been designed to cater for Children from as young as 12 months up until 18 years old. It is a fantastic way to promotive fitness and fun together with a large range of activities to keep everyone entertained.

It is important that all the children have a waiver completed before taking part in the use of the activities. These can be pre-arranged and completed before your visit.  We also recommend arriving a good 15 minutes before the session starts in order to complete the registration process and observe a health and safety video. This allows for the full hour to be used on the activities rather than being eaten up with all the processes mentioned. It is also incredibly important that you are aware that only Funky Warehouse anti slip grip socks must be worn on certain areas, as well as trainers on the parkour and bouldering zones. The Parkour zone is only appropriate for children over the age of 7 years old.
