Arc adventure soft play is open! Please take some time to read the information below before your visit. We can't wait to see you at the best indoor soft play in Derbyshire Dales!

Our all-new five storey soft play area is a fantastic facility to keep the kids (from toddlers to pre-teens) entertained, providing a safe and fun physical activity. Even better, this kind of active play has been proven to help children to develop better physical, social, mental and emotional skills. They can push their bodies to safe limits and practise balancing, jumping and climbing without risk of serious injury should they misjudge something.

Best of all − we have the onsite Blueberry Café for delicious homemade food and excellent coffee. Mum or Dad can sit and relax whilst their children play completely safe in the giant five storey climbing frame which includes swings, dens and a toddler and baby area- plus there is free Wi-Fi for parents!
