Attraction Information

Playmania is a multi-level adventure play area with a huge selection of slides, plus tunnels, ball pits and other classic play features, plus 3 party rooms, including a disco room.

Located in a fantastic heritage building, the equipment is designed to be suitable for children from 0 to 12 (1.4m height restriction). Because they allow such big jobs in there's naturally a separate tots' area to keep the small one safe too.

Highlights include the soft ball cannons, multi-sports area, massive 4 lane racing slide and tall tube slide plus the pretty superb twisting spiral slide!

And the Elsecar Heritage centre is right next door with a range of craft workshops, tea-rooms, special events and activities for children during school holiday activities, rides on the Steam Railway, a collection of old fire engines and Elsecar Park itself as well!

So it's a great one to take a range of differently kids and grandparents etc., you can split forces and hit the bits everyone wants to or stick together and do the lot! It's up to you!
