Why do I need to Book Online?
To ensure safe capacity limits and to aid space, cleaning and ventilation, 2-hour timed customer sessions are in place. We are only able to accept ‘walk in’ bookings on the door if the session is available and capacity allows.

Who supervises the children?
While Snakes and Ladders staff and management endeavour to ensure the safety of all visitors, it remains the responsibility of accompanying adults to supervise the children in their care while visiting the facility. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult (aged 18+) and remain on the responsibility of said adult at all times.
Can I bring my own food?
Customers are reminded not to bring food or drink onto our premises, except for baby food or at the manager’s discretion. No food, drink or chewing gum may be consumed in the play areas.
I have a food allergy/intolerance – can you cater for this?
Please ask a member of our team who can provide allergen information for both the prepacked and non-prepacked food and drink we have available. Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate specific dietary requests or changes to our standard menu.
We use many ingredients and shared equipment in our kitchens every day. Whilst we do our best to manage the cross contamination of ingredients, we cannot guarantee that our food meets allergen-free levels. Information on our food in relation to the 14 ingredients regarded as allergens by the Food Standards Agency is available on request.
Will we be able purchase food and drink?
Yes, of course!
We kindly ask that all customers assist us in keeping the facility as clean as possible by disposing of any food and drink items in the recycling bins provided.
Each general play admission booking will be allocated one table for the duration of their play session. We regret that we are unable to provide additional tables.
Can I book a Birthday Party?
Enjoy a 2 hour play party with:
- Access to a fabulous themed party room for the final 45 minutes
- Hot food and an ice lolly for each child
- And of course, all the fun of our amazing Indoor Adventure Playcentre!
- Optional extras for kids and adults will be available to add on too!
We expect popular dates to sell out quickly, so we recommend you book as soon as possible to secure your preferred date.
Are you running SEN sessions?
Yes! Enjoy a relaxed atmosphere during our SEN sessions which are dedicated to children aged 0-12 years with all types of disabilities and special educational needs. Book a SEN session here.
If I or a Member of my household is displaying Covid-19 symptoms on the day we have booked to visit, what should we do?
Please do not visit Snakes and Ladders if you or a member of your group are showing symptoms of Covid-19. Should you need to re-arrange your visit, please email your relevant venue.
What are the safety rules?
How do you determine what is ‘Term Time’?
We align our prices with state school term dates.
Do you have a behaviour policy?
We understand that children love to have fun and express themselves in different ways, however, any child who behaves in an aggressive manner or continually breaks the safety rules will be brought to their accompanying adult to explain the situation. Should the behaviour continue, the family or group will be asked to leave. This is to ensure the safety of all children. Abusive behaviour to our team or other customers will not be tolerated. Please speak to a Duty Manager if you have any further questions.
Can I use a Max Card at Snakes and Ladders?
One adult goes free per full paying child when you book with your Max Card. To take advantage of this discount, please call the relevant centre in advance and our team will assist you with your booking.
