The Spacebase adventure begins at the base of the giant rocket on the Launchpad. To get to the top children can make their way up through the launch gantry or take the challenge of climbing through the spider tower webbing inside the Rocket. From there they can make their way through the tunnels to Spacebase itself or zip back down to earth inside the spiral slide. Spacebase houses a wide range of equipment such as tube slides, foam hills, horizontal and vertical rolls, web step stones and much more.
Exploration is key at Spacebase. Children are encouraged to find out about the universe with state of the art wrist band technology that turns them into space explorers, encouraging them to discover fun facts about our solar system within the activity zone to complete their mission!
Adults can relax in a dedicated seating area and treat themselves to a hot beverage from our Spacebase coffee dock while watching their children play and have fun. Free WiFi is also available throughout the building.
