Play Centre

Best Indoor Play Centre in Manchester

Snakes and Slides Indoor Soft Play Centre was formed in 2006 by a team of family orientated enthusiastic individuals, who identified the need for a high quality indoor soft play centre and party venue to serve the people of Manchester, and the surrounding areas of Rochdale, Oldham, Bury, Heywood and Bolton.

Following one simple company objective – “To provide the best indoor soft play centre and party venue in the region, where children can have fun and parents can relax” – Snakes and Slides has been designed to offer an unrivalled customer experience by providing the highest levels of customer service, safety, hygiene and most importantly, the maximum amount of fun possible a child can have indoors.

In November 2012, this company objective was acknowledged by the people of Manchester and by the leading baby and toddler product retailer, Mamas & Papas, who presented Snakes and Slides Indoor Soft Play Centre with the accolade of Best Soft Play Centre in Manchester.

Since opening its doors over five years ago countless number of children have passed through the doors and many changes have taken place in and around the play centre, with the most notable changes taking place in Spring 2011. Snakes and Slides management team have invested enormously in taking the Play Centre to the next level of fun, with a top of the range Baby Soft Play Area and thrill seekers Go-kart Track. Changes have also taken place to the existing Multi-Tiered Play Kit and dazzling changes to the decor of the Play Centre and its Party Rooms. The Snakes and Slides team now believe that we have an exciting, fun, warm, safe and secure environment you and your children can continue to enjoy for many years to come.

As a family owned and managed business, the Snakes and Slides team will do everything in their power to ensure that every visit to Snakes and Slides is as enjoyable for you and your child, as it has been since we opened. For this reason we would love to hear your feedback. Please feel free to get in touch with your comments and feedback, questions and queries and especially your thoughts and experiences gained from visiting Snakes and Slides. We rely on our customers comments to ensure the high standards of service you deserve.
