Attraction Information

The Play Islands of Kent is your single stop indoor activity repository for wet weather antics and family fun!
To get them started beforehand or calm them after the more energetic activities why not stop for a classic game of tenpin bowling? With ramps and light balls as well as those handy gutter guards even small kids stand a fighting chance.
Plus looming large in this archipelago is the multiple level adventure indoor play zone offering all things bouncing, ball filled, slide sided and swing minded to keep your little adventurers right on adventuring! With a special dedicated toddler zone served on the side this is great fun and exercise for all under 10s and serves as a great alternative to the war games...
By which of course we mean their awesome laser tag arena! Get strapped into the futuristic kit and pick up a laser pack and then get stuck into the enemy! Harmless laser beams bisect the darkness for a plot rich pyrotechnic game that'll have the kids' hearts thumping like no computer game can achieve!
Plus of course a family diner as a supporting act so you can stay all day and do it all without running out of fun fuel. Bonus!
