Description

We are an indoor play centre situated inside a 160 year old church, we have been open since July 2000 running a successful business. We have a large play area for children from 5yrs – 12yrs with a separate soft play area for the under 5’s.

Our specialities’ are hosting children / adult parties and school group visits.

 

Why is this venue great for School Trips and Educational Visits?

The Fun Centre is very popular with school group visits, here the children can learn through play, you can find many school trips that are educational, but to find somewhere that is educational and fun can be hard, here is where The Fun Centre comes into mind.

 

What does a typical school trip or educational visit include?

We have a small interactive museum that gives the history of the church that The Fun Centre Is situated, here the children will be able to see pictures of how the church used to look before transforming into a play centre, and they will see the original glass windows, organ pipes and pews. After reading the history of the church they will then be able to answer the interactive questions that we have.

The children can also roam around the centre to see what of the old church they can see that is still there.

After the museum the fun part begins, the children can enter the play area which we consider to be educational but fun, as the curriculum has now changed for children under 6yrs to learning through play The Fun Centre is a great place to do this.

The obvious is that it is a way of keeping fit as the children will not leave without breaking up a sweat. There are climbing frames, rope bridges, spinning discs, giant drop slides, ball pools, and much more.

We also have the mini go Karts where hand and eye co-ordination is essential, the children will learn how to steer their way around the track, we also have our laser sport game where the children shoot at targets in a uv lit room.

If you wish we can include the museum, go karts and laser game into your visit, alternatively you can visit  us just for the play area.
 

What size groups do they cater for?

The Fun Centre can cater for school groups with up to 60 children at one time, if there is more in the group then we recommend that we split the group into two and that you have two visits, one in the morning and one in the afternoon.

Another idea is that while one group visits us the other group visits the famous Caernarfon castle.

 

Can you take photos, video or audio? Are there any copyright restrictions?

We are happy for children to take pictures video or audio.

 

How do you arrange a risk assessment?

We can provide a risk assessment of The Fun Centre on request.

 

What does it cost?

The entry fee is £6.10 per child and £2.00 per adult, if you have a group of 20 children or more we can offer a discount of £0.50 per child and adults free of charge.

The price is right at time of printing but may change without prior notice.

 

Is specific clothing required?

We advice children to wear long sleeves, trousers and socks to avoid friction burn on the slides.

 

Do you have first aid on site?

We always have a first aid on site.

 

What facilities do they have for school trips and educational visits?

We have gifts, café, seating area and patio area , children can bring packed lunch and eat on the patio area if weather permits or inside the café .

Children will probably need £4.00 spending money if they are to spend in café and shop.

 

Are there disabled facilities?

The building itself caters for wheelchairs, although we do have stairs inside the play area, we cater for most disabilities.
