Make a splash at Ocean Adventurers with your little tiddlers!
Dive into indoor fun at the newest soft play centre in Cheddar, designed with dedicated areas for babies, toddlers and kids up to 12 years old.
This brand new underwater-themed play space, boasts interactive sensory toys and games as well as a variety of adventure play equipment appropriate for their age and ability.
In the Baby Area – suitable for your little ones aged under two, you will find super slides, engaging coloured light projections and they’ll even get to plunge into a colourful ball pool. For toddlers aged 2-4, watch as they enjoy an area tailored to capture their imaginations as they discover a brilliant bubble tube and wonderful river walk, in addition to exploring what’s hidden inside the secret treasure chest. For the bigger kids aged 5-12, head over to the Junior Play area where they’ll get to zoom around on the pedal cart track, race down the four-lane slide, and release their inner sailor with the interactive lighthouse. If your kids are the creative type, then they’ll love the Pretend Play Village. They can play make-believe in a variety of imaginative set-ups, including an ice cream parlour, hairdressers and many more.
For parents and carers looking for SEND Sessions, every Sunday morning between 9:00 and 10:30, the centre becomes more relaxed with dimmed lighting, no background music and reduced entry numbers. This helps to create a less stimulating environment which some children can find overwhelming. Ocean Adventurers also offers an inclusive Changing Place with XY Hoist and adult-sized changing bed. The centre is accessible from the ground floor and is fully wheelchair friendly; the Changing Place is large enough for one wheelchair user and two carers/assistants. Some pre-booking may be required for the SEND sessions, please check online for more details.
As accompanying adults to Ocean Adventurers, don’t miss out on the enjoyment whilst the kids run off some steam, check out the onsite café, the perfect spot to sit back in and relax. Whether you’re partial to gourmet coffee and tea, sparkling fruit presse or the decadent hot chocolate aptly named ‘The Works’, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the drinks menu. Kids can take their pick from icy fruit slush, cordial, milk and fresh fruit juices. If tummies start to rumble, feast your eyes on a menu that offers hot and cold meals including kids’ meals, breakfast baps, Caesar salads and a selection of paninis.
Ocean Adventurers is also the perfect location for your children to celebrate their birthday, with great party packages available from £12.50 per child.

September 2020 Update:
Here at Ocean Adventurers in Cheddar, Somerset we have been incredibly busy with full bookings since re-openings our doors once again on the 15th August. Making us one of the first soft-play centres in the UK to open with COVID19 safety measures in place that have worked brilliantly and fully-effectively throughout this time and continue to do so.
On the 17th September we had the privilege of being awarded Bristol Life’s ‘Best New Business’ award for 2020. With Bristol Life stating that we are an incredibly “well-run soft play business that has gained rave reviews: first in UK to use new cleaning tech and already one of the highest rated in the south west.”
Owners Tom and Laura Filer comment that: “We were truly honoured to be a finalist for Bristol Life’s ‘Best New Business’ award, let alone come to win it! After the announcement we were full of pride in knowing that all our hard work is continuing to pay off and that we are continuing to lead the way for the soft-play industry”.
We have just recently secured Ofsted approval to offer childcare and so we are delighted to announce that we will be opening our very our nursery ‘little Adventures’ very soon! The nursery is going to be opening in mid-late October this year, but customers can already register their interest and book a viewing at: https://littleadventuresnursery.com
Exclusive hire parties are soon to be coming back! We will be allowing customers to book out the entire centre for themselves and whoever they choose to invite! Customers can now look to enquire about this by emailing the team on firstname.lastname@example.org – Booking will be for only £300 and this will give customers the capacity to invite up to 100 people. There may also be a few little add on’s that may entice them even further.
And now we are adding in the option of letting parties feature an exhilarating game or two of Laser Tag! With a maximum of 24 players at a time, this will add an entire new element to an already memorable celebration. We will be looking to bring this in as soon as we can but are still making sure that we can still meet Covid-19 guidelines whilst playing. Any updates will be announced on our social channels.
Fighting the typical stereotypes of soft play centres, Ocean Adventurers was set up by Tom and Laura with the aim of reversing the generalised thoughts surrounding soft-play areas that can tend to be negative. Tom and Laura have built an amazing facility that provides a fresh and hygienic approach by incorporating their industry leading cleaning fogging system and procedures. And now they want to take it one step further an offer a full dining experience, where between 5-8pm adults will be allowed to order an alcoholic drink to accompany their dinner.
Along with regulated social distancing measures, one-way systems, enhanced cleaning procedures, hand sanitising stations, temperature testing on entry and minimised admittances via online (www.oceanadventurers.com) booked slots, the team have truly thought of everything to keep you safe. So, all children can continue to look forward to oceans of safe play and discovery while the adults can rest assured during their trip out to make it an even more memorable and enjoyable experience for all with all our new and exciting benefits.
