Bring your kids down for a play at Lollipop's Playland, a new children's play centre located in Jandakot. It is bursting at the seams with some cool new equipment that the kids will love.
The ultimate new piece of equipment is the pirate ship. My kids went running through the café area to be the first to have a ride. It is like a mini version of Bounty's Revenge and can sit up to 12 kids at once. This ride is manned at all times and although it is quite gentle, kids are required to put on seatbelts for their own safety.
The pirate ship
As they enter the play area, the kids are faced with a challenging six level elastic tower, where they need to climb up to the top and drop through the bands back to the bottom again.
While exploring the main four level play structure they will find many obstacles including stepping stones, spinning platforms, rollers, tubes and much more.
One of the highlights of the centre is the air play system on the bottom level. There are air cannons as well as various other machines which blow soft balls in and around that area. The kids just love running around and picking all the balls up, putting them back into the air blower and watching them blow into the air over and over again.
The four person speed slide is in built with cool bumps along the way. It is like a dare for kids to attempt, especially if they get three of their friends together for a race. For the older kids who are too cool to 'play' there are also three Playstations set up near the entrance to keep them occupied.
The younger children have a play area of their own with climbing obstacles, a bridge, slides and steps. They also have big padded blocks for the little ones to manoeuvre around and build structures which they can knock down again. Of course, ball pits are a must in every little kids play area.
Toddler and baby play area
If that's not enough there is also a bouncy castle for the kids to jump on which is usually set aside for the little ones, but the big ones can have a go on it as well if they are keen. This is manned on the weekends to avoid multi-age crashes.
The café area for the parents is large and spacious with plenty of room for prams and there are high chairs available for use. The menu offers a good range of food from snacks to meals as well as a kid's packs and a variety of hot and cool drinks.
Pirates, Fantasy, Underwater and Jungle are your choices for the party rooms which can hold around 30 kids each. Party packages start from $189 for 8 children, which include food, drink, entry for both the child and the adult, unlimited play, invitations, party hats, lolly bags and birthday cake. The birthday child also receives a gift from Lollipop's.
Lollipop's Playland also cater for private and corporate functions, sports presentation nights, group bookings and Christmas parties.
Give Lollipop's a try. Your kids will love exploring the place and playing on all the exciting new equipment that Lollipop's Playland has to offer.
Looks like really good fun but as soon as I see that as an Adult you have to pay to get in to the centre it puts me off straight away. Why do you have to pay to look after your children while they play...
The adult entry includes a free drink so essentially they are forcing you to buy a coffee! I don't like that either. I went there for the first time last week - it's not bad, the air play is good but very noisy and the main play area doesn't have great visibility i.e. it's difficult to locate your kids in. The Pirate ship was a hit though.
I agree whole heatedly - why dont these places realise that if they let the adults without cost because parents pay any by taking their kids there and if they offer refreshments they will cover their expenses twice over. It is the littlies who use there equipment not the adults. without the parent to bring them to play, there would be no children & the business would fold - well thought our or not!
I was at this play center on Thursday. I was shocked and dissappointed. It is a lot of money for entry for not that big of a play center. Lots of little kids were running crazy without supervision. I was there for four hours and the tables were not cleaned till half an hour before I left. There was food and rubbish, dirty cups all over tables and coffee tables near the couches. I saw a mother taking up dirty dishes to the canteen and all of the staff except the front door girl were grumpy and really didnt seem like they wanted to be there. I ordered a coffee and the girl who brought it over actually grunted at me when I thanked her. To my discust she carried it over with her fingers resting on the rim. After giving me my coffee she didnt remove my table number and walked past three filthy tables on her way to the canteen without so much as picking up one cup. I went to the toilets and they were filthy too. Never once did I see a staff member check or clean them. Very disappointing in a center that has only just opened that it was so messy and the staff seemed so unhappy. Much talk has been about the pirate ship and it is manned all the time. This is totally untrue it was turned on every hour. They would fill it, let it swing twice, then the kids would have to get off, they would do it again twice then that was it. Children who missed out had to wait an hour to have a chance to go again. Also while there a boy broke both his front teeth and his face looked hurt. The owner/manager seemed more concerned with writing out an incident report form than she did in helping the mother. It was awful. Other parents who were at the center had to help her with her other children as the staff at this center didn't seem to care. I was totally put off and will not be back. I am glad it wasn't my child or me because I would have gone off my face. Shame on them for building a child's play center for the money they will make out of it it looks :(
Love this place, The coffee here is great and it's nice to know that my kids have somewhere fun to play. Don't mind paying the 3.50 as it gets me my free coffee (something they don't have to give us ) Nice and spacious and clean and the staff are great, always smiling.
Took my kids here the other week, and don't think i'm ever going to go back again. I still don't understand why adults have to pay? i don't drink coffee or tea so I don't need a free voucher, and when I asked the lady at the front counter if I can not pay the $3:50 and just not get a voucher, she said no I HAVE to pay $3:50. Which I think is bloody ridiculous. There isn't much room to sit and have food, they really need to put more tables in, Everybody working there seemed as though they didn't want to be there, and their staff is quiet rude I found. Especially one of the ladies in red/black shirt, which I gather was a manger? I don't have any nice things to say about this place.
