Visitor Facilities

Adventure Valley has worked hard to provide a full range of visitor facilities:

Free Parking – For those arriving by car or coach we have plenty of free parking onsite.

Toilets – Toilets are located within the Indoor PlayTown, and also at the Round Table Cafe.

Facilities for babies – Baby changing facilities are near the soft play area within the Indoor PlayTown and at the toilets near the Round Table Cafe. In Cafe Italia we provide microwave ovens for parents to heat milk or baby food and provide high chairs for younger visitors.

Accessibility for wheelchairs and pushchairs – The site is split into three sections. The top part is completely accessible, giving you access to all the indoor play areas. The other two sections are outdoors and on a hill, however, paths have been covered in tarmac.

No Smoking Onsite – Smoking is not allowed within Adventure Valley. The smoking area is located in the main car park.

No Alcohol – We operate a no alcohol policy across the whole of Adventure Valley.

No Dogs Allowed Onsite – We do not allow dogs onsite apart from Guide Dogs and other registered Assistance Dogs

Where to Eat

Cafe Italia

Within the heart of the Indoor PlayTown, you’ll find Cafe Italia.

Serving Italian favourites such as pizza, pasta and panini, grab a seat either inside the play area or on the outside terrace.

Food is served from 10am until 4:15pm. Delicious coffees, teas and children’s picnic boxes are also available.

The Round Table Cafe

During the height of the school holidays, we open an additional cafe in Runaway Ranch. With beautiful views over the Valley, it’s the ideal spot to take a break and watch the children play.
