The multi-tiered soft play jungle provides a fun, safe and stimulating play environment for babies, toddlers and juniors so little monkeys can go wild!

The jungle-themed play area has lots of activities across four levels for endless entertainment, including;

  • a designated baby area for children aged 0-2,
  • a toddler area for children aged 2-5,
  • and a junior section for children aged 5-12.

A height restriction is in place for user’s safety (148cm and under for access to play).

Two hour sessions in peak times.


  • £5 for 1 year olds and over 
  • £2 for Twycross Zoo Members

Please note; all parents and children must wear socks during their time in soft play.

And for parents…

The new Vine Café and The View Restaurant have recently opened. You can enjoy fresh, seasonal food homemade on the premises by our kitchen teams.

There is a wide range of lunchtime classics available from the kitchen and grill such as beer battered fish and chips, char-grilled chicken, salads, pastas, pizzas and sharing platters.

Alternatively, simply sit back and relax with Costa coffee, and a cake.

There’s a variety of children’s meals too, plus ‘5 for a £5 selection’.
