About Ballyhoo Play Barn

Ballyhoo in Cheltenham is a great place to take your children come rain or shine. Our Indoor Playbarns, offer a warm welcome, comfy seats, delicious refreshments and a place to park the car for free. Oh, and not to mention fantastic bright and exciting play structures. Why not join us for some fun and adventures!

Who can Play?

Ballyhoo is designed for children 12 years and under, with fantastic ball ponds, rope bridges, bouncy bits and plenty of room to go wild!
There is also a maze of tubes, squidgy bits and curly slides, so there's plenty on offer to enjoy yourself.
A toddler play area allows your little ones to have just as much fun and won't run the risk of being intimidated by the larger barn structures.

Not just for the kids!

Our play structures are designed so that even adults can join in the fun! We don't believe that adults should be left out and so if you want to get in there and whizz down the double drop slide, or clamber through the rope mazes, then why not! Give it a go and you'll be surprised what a good work out you've had.

Refresh and Relax

When burning all that energy in the play structures it's important to take time to relax, that's where our cafe and lounge areas come in.
We've provided comfortable and relaxed surroundings where you can put your feet up and enjoy a hot chocolate and a slice of cake, or take advantage of our delicious menu, choose something healthy like a sandwich or baguette with a mixed salad or be a devil and have cheesy chips smothered in ketchup! The choice is yours.
