(AD Disclaimer): This review post ‘A visit to Whoosh Play and Party Centre in Bracknell’ is written in paid partnership with Whoosh Play and Party Centre. Views are honest and those of Berkshire Mummies.
We were kindly invited for a play session at Whoosh in Bracknell. I have been to Whoosh pre-covid with my eldest for a birthday party but it was lovely to return with my toddler who hasn’t had much soft play experience yet! The staff were very welcoming and the soft play centre itself felt clean. Whoosh are asking you to book tickets online and are still keeping capacity lower than pre-covid which personally I think is brilliant as it just gives everyone a bit more space.
What is at the Soft Play?
The soft play has a large 3 tired frame, which has 3 large slides which leads to a ball pit at one end of the soft play frame.
There is then a ‘baby area’ in one section of the ground floor of the soft play. There are baby toys, a small ball pit and puzzles to build and complete, which are also great for toddlers.
On the ground floor you will also find a mirror maze and set of four mini trampolines.
As you go up into the play frame, you will find a tunnel slide, tunnels, bridges, obstacles, steps and more over the different levels – there is plenty to keep your child busy and you fit if you follow them around!
There are also tables and sofas dotted around the soft play, so you can pick an area to put your bags and shoes and have your ‘based’.
There are also toilets and baby changing.
Can I get food or drink at Whoosh?
There is a cafe at Whoosh and you can buy snacks and drinks but there is also a full menu of food available which includes soup, jacket potatoes, sandwiches, panini’s, burgers, fish and chips and more. Click here to view the menu.
The cafe is based on the ground floor but there is also additional dining seating upstairs, both are right next to the soft play frame. The seating area upstairs also leads to the party room.
Did it feel safe?
To enter and leave the soft play you need to press a button to open the main door. You are then at the Whoosh reception desk. Once you have checked in at the desk you can then enter the soft play via a gate, you have to be let in and out via a member of staff, this is there to stop any little ones leaving. This security gave me real peace of mind that my child was safe and shouldn’t be able to run out of the soft play.
You were welcome to wear face masks if you wished and there was hand sanitiser available. The staff were also cleaning during the play session when I visited.
