A little play centre where little bodies can run amok
It may not be the biggest place in the world, but what Tumblers Kids Gym lacks in size, it makes up for in with opportunities for the kids to burn some energy and have a bit of fun.

Located within Riverton Leisureplex, Tumblers is surrounded by health and wellness, so it makes sense that it doesn't bother to add in all those extra bits and bobs that feature at so many play centres. With no electronics or games, claw machines or giant pirate ships to distract the kids, there's only one thing to do – get up and get moving.

The gym is made up of four main areas – the play structure, a ball pit for babies, and two soft cushioned areas where the kids can climb and jump and generally just run amok.

I could only find two main ways of getting into the play structure – a cushioned but rather steep set of steps and a low-sitting set of board-like steps that the kids, or very small parents, have to crawl under and navigate to get to the top. At seven months pregnant, there was no way I was having a go at that. We opted for the steep steps instead.

The first level of the structure is made up of ball pits, little tracks to run around and soft play, while the second level has tunnels, sensory play and slides. The structure is made up of three levels in total, with lots of rope areas and big slides connecting the top to the bottom. While it's small compared to other structures, I'm sure countless young children have gotten lost in there, regardless.

Parents of children aged five and under must stay in the gym and supervise their children, while those with kids over five are free to leave the gym and wander around other areas of the Leisureplex. With a café located just outside the gym, it's highly unlikely you'll get further than this anyway, as it's a good place to sit down and have a rest while keeping an eye on the kids from a distance.

The Leisureplex does have a crèche, so leaving your children alone in Tumblers while you workout is somewhat frowned upon. If your child is aged under five years, you must stay in the gym with them.

Entry fees are $7.20 for kids aged between one and four, while kids aged between five and 12 years will set you back $8.20. Riverton Leisureplex also offers a Kids Gym and Swim for $10.20.

If you want the kids to get some good old-fashioned exercise without all the distractions of the big play centres, Tumblers is the place to go, because you can't beat some simple running around and running amok.
