One of the South East’s biggest indoor adventure play centres, Go Bananas Colchester is so much more than just a soft play centre. It makes for a brilliant family activity with your little ones, all while helping with their development too. For Go Bananas offers everything from baby sensory classes to cooking courses, messy play, dance, storytelling and arts and crafts sessions. There are even anxiety workshops, while there’s an Ofsted-registered preschool, after-school club and holiday club. There’s no escaping the fact that playtime is the real star of the show though. Kids can swing through ancient ruins just like Indiana Jones - even if they’ve never heard of him - as they explore the Aztec Adventure area, which features an action-packed three-storey climbing frame for over 5s. Tiny Town, meanwhile, is a safe, secure environment for little adventurers aged 4 and under. Smaller obstacles are perfect for tiny frames, while interactive play zones, a two-storey climbing frame and disco room provide a sensory overload perfect for practicing fine motor skills.
Go Bananas is close to the centre of Colchester, next door to the fun-filled Jump Street trampoline park just off the A133. Just half an hour from the town’s main train station, rail services to London Liverpool Street only take 45 minutes, while it’s a similar journey to Norwich. If you’re driving, Go Bananas is only around 10 minutes from junction 27 or 28 of the A12, which runs all the way from London to Ipswich. There’s plenty of free parking available, while there’s a bus stop on Catchpool Road if you’re arriving on the bus.
Whilst you wait... just think about being in your swimmers, the sun's out and the smiles are big
