Chipmunks Playland and Cafe, Wanneroo

Published by: Buggybuddys Jennie on 6th Sep 2013 | View all blogs by Buggybuddys Jennie

The hotly awaited Chipmunks Playland and Cafe has opened up it’s doors in Wanneroo at Drovers Market Place next door to Surge Fitness.


Admission prices to Chipmunks (which are standard throughout the WA franchises) are $9.90 on  School Day’s for children aged 1-11 and $9.90 for 1 - 2 years, $12.90 for 3 - 11 years on weekends and school & public holidays. Children under 1 are free.
 

Chipmunks Playland and Cafe in Wanneroo has two separate areas for the under 5’s and the 5 and up age groups. With it being a brand new playcentre everything is clean and fresh from the play equipment, to the cafe furniture to the toilets.


The area for the under 5’s is situated to the left of the cafe area. It is fenced and gated although the gate is not locked so children are free to come and go as they please.


Within the area is a large playframe which is themed as a high street with shops.


To the forefront of the play frame is a spinning saucer, a roundabout, a tumble tunnel and a merry-go-round.




Miss 5 loved the Merry-go-round and spent ages playing on it. That was her favourite thing she said.


There is also a large keyboard which plays and lights up when the kids stand, jump or run all over it.


The play frame is 2 levels which includes a double slide


Velcro brick wall that kids can build themselves time and time again.


Climbing rope


And various other soft play hanging and rotating things plus another ball pit!


If you have crawlers you will be disappointed as there is nothing really available appropriate for their age group. I would say this area caters well for children aged 2 plus.

On the opposite side of the cafe, running along the right hand wall is the play structure for children aged 5 - 11. This 3 level structure contains 3 super-duper fast slides which Miss 5 thought was fabulous!


A small trampoline
 

A ball pit

A chute and pod



The famous Chipmunks ball blast where kids are able to shoot soft balls all around the area using a variety of methods.

Miss 2 loved the air jet - well she loved the effect it was having on her hair!


At the rear of the hall is the recognisable Chipmunks Bouncy Castle slide which all kids love!


The cafe is situated at the front of the hall and serves a variety of hot meals and snacks. They also have a selection of Rafferty’s Garden baby food available. The cakes which they had on offer were very enticing and I thought the prices were reasonable. A large slice of cake was $4.50.


The one drawback to the venue I would have to say is it’s size. It is rather compact and the tables and chairs in the cafe area (particularly between the 2 playframes) are tightly packed together. I would recommend not bringing along a stroller if you can avoid it you.

At the rear of the venue are tables set out to accommodate larger groups and here there is a little more space.

The maximum capacity of the venue is 200 and I think it could feel quite cramped when it is full.


The party rooms are all situated at the rear of the building and have windows that look out onto the play area. Unfortunately these were not finished when we visited which was the first day of opening.

Chipmunks Playland and Cafe is located at 
Unit 11, 1387 Wanneroo Road

    Went here yesterday and don't think we'll be back any time soon. The place was packed, there wasn't enough staff or high chairs, food and drink service was slow/non existent (took and hour for 2 coffees and had hot chips that didn't arrive after an hour and a half) and while I can appreciate they are 'still in training', it took me 20 minutes to even order a coffee as no-one seemed interested in serving at the counter. And the coffees we did eventually receive, do not justify the $5 paid. Also, 2 ladies toilets and 1 disabled one for such a knowingly well frequented place doesn't stike me a sufficient, nor does one change station.
