WOW! The place is huge! Mamma has never seen so many different kinds of slides, unique climbing equipment and fun all in the one spot.
The centrepiece is a big wooden boat structure that plays host to a giant ball pit with not one - but two slides into the 'waves'! There are party rooms, play mazes, games pods, tunnels, a climbing wall, a cafe, plus lots of good vantage points in terms of seating for carers.
The Dingo discovery sanctuary is a wonderful unique experience and it is right here in the west and their Dingo puppy open days begin on July 7. This is a very special experience.
