We’re made up of Lyndsey, John and Erin, who all love a new adventure. We try to get away as much as possible, especially during school holidays and variety is a must for us. That means staying anywhere from a luxury hotel to a hostel and it’s not often we go to the same place twice. 

If you’re looking for something to do indoors while you’re in Cleethorpes then consider soft play with the kids. The Magical Castle is the perfect place for the kids to run around and have some fun.

A world of fun at The Magical Castle

Before heading to The Magical Castle, be sure to book your session online first. It’s really easy to do and only takes a couple of minutes. You can just turn up however, it’s advisable to book during busy periods.

Something I’ve never seen before at soft play is the table system The Magical Castle use. On arrival, we were allocated a table number for the duration of our session. There are lots of tables spread out at the front of the equipment and around the back. I liked having a specific table just for us, as it meant not having to worry about leaving our belongings while we were all off having fun.

Play for under 4s

Something I loved about The Magical Castle is that there was a completely separate play area for children under 4. This area is away from the main play frame so there is no confusion about who the area is for. Inside there is a two storey padded play frame with slides, tunnels and dizzy discs along with two play areas with a roundabout, seesaw,  and lots of soft play shapes. For babies, there is walkers, rockers and other soft toys.

Children age 4 and over

The main play area is MASSIVE! When we walked in we were all blown away by just how big this place was. I definitely wasn’t expecting something so big with so much to do.

This area has five different levels to explore. You’ll find a mix of regular soft play type climbing equipment to get around each floor. However, there is so much more to The Magical Castle. As you turn a different corner you’ll find something super fun to do. There are monkey bars, a hamster wheel, balance beams dizzy discs and tunnels. Don’t forget to have a go at the slides too. There’s one called the ‘Black Hole’, only for the super brave.

Adults can play too, which, if you have one child, means they will instantly have a friend to play with.

The Castle Cafe

Playing and having fun is hungry work and it’s good news that The Castle Cafe has some great options. Unlike some soft play cafes, this one has really reasonable prices. Although we didn’t eat here during our visit, we did get drinks. A whole jug of squash was £2 (my old place of work used to charge a whopping £5.20).

The Castle Cafe menu

Food options include hot breakfasts, sandwiches and paninis and children’s meals. Something I was impressed with with the sharing platters, costing £15 each. These included either pizza, chicken nuggets, vegetarian nuggets or fish fingers as well as chips for around 4 people. This is great if you have a few children or are organising an after school play date.

The Magical Castle is a great choice if you want to children to burn off some energy, have fun and go to one of the best soft plays around.
