When booking a play session our visitors agree to Totcity’s terms and conditions:
- Totcity is a play centre where the parents or guardians accept full responsibility for the supervision of the children in their care. Totcity staff cannot be asked to supervise any child for any reason.
- Children of all ages are welcome to play, but the centre is specifically designed for young children (0 – 5 years). Older children may need to be made aware that some of the resources are not appropriate for their use , e.g. cars that are too small for them.
- Any child must be accompanied by an adult at all times. Even though your child may be able to play independently you should stay nearby to ensure that resources and other visitors are treated with respect.
- Bookings can be made in advance online, or by contacting us in the centre or via phone.
- Play sessions last 90 mins each, the times of which are listed on our website. If you join a play session already in progress, you will need to leave at the end of that session, even if you have not been there for the full session. It is your responsibility to arrive in time for your session. If you miss your play session or part thereof, refunds and transfers will not be available.
- Totcity reserves the right to close the whole or part of the play centre at any time if deemed necessary for the security and safety of guests and staff. Customers will then have a choice to either re-book their places or receive a refund.
- The entry price includes admission only. Refreshments can be purchased separately in our café.
- If you have not pre-booked you run the risk that the play session may be fully booked when you arrive. In such cases we would not be able to accommodate you, as pre-booked places have priority.
- All children and adults, apart from pre-walkers, must pay the entry price.
- Entry prices are listed in GBP on our website www.totcity.co.uk We may change these at any time without notice.
