Fun Shack, the home of the North East’s Premium Indoor Adventure Park with over 30,000 square feet of entertainment.

They currently have 4 centres located in Seaham, Stockton, Newcastle and Gateshead.

This post is focused on Newcastle’s indoor adventure park and mainly on the 0-4 year section as that’s the section we played on with Baby B. However, I have tried to include all sections within guide.

You can book online prior to attending the indoor adventure park or you can also pay on the day. However, I would suggest booking online, when it comes those busier days such as school holidays, weekends, etc.

There is plenty of parking in the business park and free. They are located directly behind Walkergate Metro station.

TIP: Collect a loyalty card from reception on your next visit for free to start earning stamps for free visits.

The venue is all on one level too, Therefore easy access for pushing buggies around and also for wheelchair access too. A

They also have a toddler sessions on during the week, Monday-Friday 10am – 4pm or 10:30am to 3:30pm Monday to Friday during term time.

This Includes a toddler entry, juice and biscuits with the costing price of £6.50 per toddler. And Last admission at 2pm (term time only). Do check incase this information changes.

On arrival, you will receive a wristband. The colour of the wristband is the table area you sit for example green wristband, you will sit on the green seats.

The Fun Shack admission price is for an hour and a half stay in the centre. When it is time for your visit to be over, they will call you out by the colour of your wristband.

Food & Drink:

You can not bring any food and drink purchased elsewhere onto the site. The only exception to this is baby food.

This policy is necessary for fun snack to comply with our liability insurance and to ensure they are adhere to local health and safety regulations.

However, they do sell food on-site from hot and cold drinks to snacks, sweet treats, cakes and meals.

They even do a selected choice of kids meals on their snack shack menu.

Once you have ordered your food, they will bring it over to your table, they will ask you what colour seats and give you a number. Our food did not take too long to arrive.

Fun shack have a baby changing area but there is only one and the toilet areas are not very big either.

They have two age ranges within the Indoor Adventure Park, 0-4 years and 4-14 years.

Tots play area: (0-4 years)

The Toon Town has 5 sections: Fire station, Mini mart, Toon time boutique, Pizza shop and Pet shop.

The mama’s perspective: “ The toon town has always been my favourite section from taking the girls when they were younger.

It’s not only great fun for the children to dress up and parents to be able to take photographs but also a great way to get your child’s brain thinking and taking part in role playing Scenarios such as pushing a doll in a pram, going shopping and ‘paying’ for items or even being the staff member.

These are screens that the kids can pick an sheet to colour in, which is great way to get them used to technology.

The mama’s perspective: “The tots section is spacious compared from most soft-plays. They have a ball-pit, little foam shops, a pirate play area, a car wash with cars for the little ones to drive around in or should I say pushed around by us parents”.

“I would say Fun-shack is one of the bigger soft plays I have been too, and even the toddler section has a decent size space”. And all play activities were provided in a safe and secure surrounding with locks over the tops of the gates in the baby and toddler section.
