Attraction Information

Children and parents of Bury, are you in need of some fun? If your kids are bored at home on the weekends or during the school holidays then the Wacky Warehouse at the Paper Mill pub in Lancashire could be the answer to your prayers... 

Kids can let loose and spend all their energy climbing, sliding, swinging, and bouncing around in a safe environment meanwhile you can cosy up in the cafe. With both indoor soft play and an outdoor play area, it is the perfect place to let the kids unleash their inner explorer and go wild even in wet weather!
Things to do
Whatever the age of your little monsters there is something for all of them with a designated area for tots, a mini climbing wall, a large ball pool, lots of obstacles and arts & crafts. And what's more? You can also book our party room for up to 30 children - that's a whole class size!

The Wacky Warehouse at The Paper Mill provides an excellent environment for the kids to get some indoor exercise and build up an appetite for the delights of the children's menu.

They feature the usual range of fun equipment from bridges and tunnels to balls and slides all spread over several levels with good visibility from the seating area. There's also a separate and enclosed zone for kiddies up to 3 years offering smaller equivalents of the big fun plus a few age-appropriate extras. Your toddlers won't ever have to miss out on any of the fun their big brothers & sisters are having. 

The arts & crafts sessions are the perfect opportunity to let loose in a different way. Rather than run ragged around soft play, your kids can experiment with colours, materials, shapes, and paintbrushes. Just make sure to bring a spare of clothes as these sessions can get pretty messy... Arts & crafts sessions are supervised by a friendly team of staff and all materials are provided by Wacky Warehouse. There is no booking system involved, so you can just drop in any time during one and get messy!

Kids' parties are also welcome here and free WiFi gives you work and entertainment options while you wait. Birthday parties include party invitations, party food, party bags, a party host & a party room

Food & Drink
While the kids let loose, parents and family members can enjoy freshly-made coffee, cake and a selection of food for both kids and grown-ups in our café area. There is also free Wi-Fi available, so make sure you take full advantage of this service while you have some much-needed 'you time'. And when the kids do return, make sure they refuel on the hot food and cold drinks available at the cafe.
Transport & Parking for Visitors
There are free on-site parking and disability spaces available. Wacky Warehouse Paper Mill is also accessible by public transport so it couldn't be easier to give your kids a wacky day out!
