From the 1st of January 2020 we will be lowering our age limit to 8 year olds.
This will also affect our Fun @ The Factory Parties with the new age limit for party children and guests being 8 years of age. Exclusive Parties and DIY hire will still have the maximum age of 12 years.
With the size of the equipment we have, we feel that the Fun Factory is more aimed towards younger children. With the size of the building a large expansion to the play frames is not possible. We feel that we do not offer good value for money for parents with older children as we find that 9-12 year olds get bored very quickly in our play frame and there are much bigger centres locally that would keep them entertained for longer. This would be Stoke’s first larger play centre for children 8 years and under.
As part of this change we are also going make some other changes, starting with a much bigger role play area open all year and not just term time. We are also wanting to add a baby/pre-walker area as well as some other top secret ideas!
Any suggestions that you would like to see are welcomed.
We know we are going to lose some great customers and for that we can only apologies and thank them for their custom. But we feel this will be the best way to secure the future of The Fun Factory for our staff and customers, both adults and children, enabling us to continue providing a fun and safe environment for children to play, learn, develop and have fun.
Thank you for your understanding
Older children are welcome to accompany their parents and younger siblings but will not be allowed to access the play equipment.
