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 2 party rooms, and 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 we allow such big kids 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, and Elsecar Park itself as well!
