Thank You for booking your Pay & Play session with us at Baloo’s!

During the past few months, we have been working hard to secure the business to ensure that we have been able to reopen. Please take moment to read through this document as it will help you to enjoy your visit with us and to help you understand the changes we have made.

On Thursday 13th of August 22, 2020 we were given permission to reopen our business following the forced closure of businesses due the COVID-19 outbreak. We were issued with a document from the government which was created alongside BALPPA (British Association of Leisure Parks, Piers and Attractions) which Baloo’s are a member of. The document was operational guidance on how to open indoor play. We have since been preparing and re-training ourselves, managers, staff and making some changes so we could open and create a safe environment for children to come and enjoy indoor play. When you arrive please take time to observe the guidance in place by way of signage.

  • Please arrive no more than 5 minutes prior to your booking time. We will be unable to allow you to enter until your chosen time.
  • When you arrive at the building there may be a couple of minutes before you are allowed in the building. We will do what we can to minimise waiting times and to get you sat down. Please have your booking confirmation that was emailed to you so our Team can check you in. This can be printed or shown via the screen of a mobile or tablet etc.
  • We are now limited to 40% of our capacity. The number of people allowed in the building has been restricted so a level social distancing can be maintained between all visitors.

The Baloo’s café will be open for the duration of your visit. We kindly ask that food orders are placed within the first hour of your visit. This will ensure that we are able to get your food to you with plenty of time to eat before you leave. We have take-away cups available for use during your session if you wish to use one. There is also a selection of food available to take away. Please ask your server for more information. If you require anything from our café during your session, please ask one of the team and they will gladly take your order for you. We accept cash or card payments.


Socks must always be worn. It is recommended that children wear long sleeves and full-length trousers, as the slides – particularly the racing slide – can cause friction burns. Polyester and nylon materials (tracksuits and football shirts) can be prone to burns and scorch marks.
