The Idol Soft Play Centre

The Idol soft play structure

The Idol is Barking’s premier soft play facility for children aged 0-12 years!

The Idol is a two-storey-high soft play climbing frame that takes the form of a towering, cage-like robotic figure with labyrinthine chambers, ramps and various levels. Our amazing frame provides a guaranteed day filled with fun in the various areas of our climbing frame structure.
Whilst your kids are busy having fun you can enjoy freshly made hot or cold food from our cafe menu.

Come and explore our amazing multi-tier soft play mega structure and indoor fun activities!
