Attraction Information

Looking for a family-friendly day out? The Wacky Warehouse at the Squinting Cat pub in Harrogate, North Yorkshire offers a whole host of cool adventure play equipment, arts & crafts, and delicious food to fill your day with wonder.

Climb, slide, swing and bounce the day away! With both indoor soft play and an outdoor play area, it is the perfect place to unleash your inner explorer and go wild even in wet weather.

So, without further ado let's get into all the excellent kid-friendly facilities at the Wacky Warehouse Squinting Cat...
Things to do
Toddlers and big kids, there is something for all of you at the Wacky Warehouse! Tiny tots can enjoy all the thrills the big kids can, on a much smaller level in the enclosed play zone for babies and toddlers. The toddler zone offers soft construction materials, padded crawl space and several main frame features in miniature with some developmental toys just for them.

Big kids can monkey around on the giant playframe, tackle wobbly bridges, shuffle through tunnels and plough into the giant ball pit after snaking down the slides. This adventure is suited for kids up to 10 years old who is 4"9 or under. 

Have we got the next Andy Warhol, Klimt, or Picasso in our midst?! There's only one way to find out... Head over to FREE arts & crafts sessions! These fun sessions are hosted by an enthusiastic member of staff Plus they offer regular led arts and crafts sessions which tend to be Drop In and posted in advance on their site.

There's no party like a Wacky Party, am I right? Raise the roof with all your friends and family, whizzing through the playframes, racing down slides and tucking into some yummy party food at the end. Wacky Warehouse parties are great hosts that offer party invitations, party bags, a party room, post-host, and party food in their party package! Book our party area for up to 28 children and go wild.

Whatever your little monsters' age, there is always something fun to try out. With a designated area for tots, slides, ball pools, obstacles and arts & crafts, they will be entertained for hours.
Food & Drink
Children are generally welcome until around 9pm, and there is a healthy children's menu to choose from available whenever the kitchens are open at the pub.

Inside Wacky Warehouse however, you can enjoy a wide range of treats from freshly-made coffee, cake and a selection of food for both kids and grown-ups in the café area.
Parents, if you are getting bored sitting on the sidelines, don't worry, there is free Wi-Fi available throughout the warehouse that you can tap into. Catch up on your latest series, answer emails, plan your next home DIY project or get back to all your friends. Enjoy some much-needed 'me' time while your monkeys go wild just a few metres away. 

Wacky Warehouse has everything you need to recharge your own batteries whilst tiring out your energetic explorers.
This venue is wheelchair friendly! There is good disabled access to the building and the toddler zone so push and wheelchair users are very welcome.
