Australia’s largest indoor playground opens in western Melbourne

Australia’s largest indoor playground opens in western Melbourne
March 16, 2018

Claiming to be Australia’s biggest indoor playground, the Rabbit Hole Playcentre, has opened in the western Melbourne suburb of Braybrook.

The Imagination Play designed facility has multiple themes from a vast range of products, including custom-made elements to create what Imagination Play says is “the most exciting and vibrant playcentre the company has designed to date”.

Built at a cost of more than $2 million , the new facility has been designed to be a wonderland for children to explore as they visit the different ‘lands’ throughout the playspace.

Imagination Play say that “the range of unique theme lands to investigate encourage the children to engaging in play, socialisation and imagination.”

The playcentre consists of a six-metre-high Space World for the children to challenge themselves in a world where they can scramble through tunnels and uneven platforms, going higher and higher up the multiple-level structure.

The Moonwalk is designed with colourful spongy rubber mounds that allow the children to feel as though they are walking through zero gravity, so that they can explore space and the wonders of the universe.

The Enchanted Forest offers children the chance to run through the rainforest, dodging the tall grass pommels, or climbing the treetops from tree pod to tree pod.

In Babylon children are sent into a mystical tower where they have the choice to speed down a large clear tube slide or visit the connecting Enchanted Forest tree tops.

In the Funfair area children experience illuminated brightly-coloured circus tent where they can be entertained by live performers or test out their cooking skills and learn new recipes in The Bakehaus kitchen.

The Sea World consists of three giant beach huts with interconnecting multiple ramps and slides of different varieties.

Youngsters can also challenge themselves by climbing the impressive rock wall, fitted with belay systems to ensure the children’s safety or they can choose to climb through the rabbit holes and slide into their allocated party room.

Rabbit Hole Playcentre has an area to suit all ages and abilities, even including toddlers who can play in the pirate ship positioned in the middle of the playcentre.

Surrounding the ship feature is Australia’s largest ball pit that is designed to mimic the effect of water while the toddler area also has a large hot air balloon structure, inspired by the Disney movie, Up. Children can imagine flying high in the sky while looking up at the balloon above their heads which is filled with thousands of vibrant coloured blow up balls.

Imagination Play add “the vibrant colours add enchantment and excitement, and stimulate the bodies and minds of the kids.

“The floor of the Playcentre is covered by brightly decorated rubber wetpour, Flecks® first rubber wetpour job in Australia. Flecks® is a fantastic surface for children’s playcentres and high traffic areas as it is slip-resistant and wheelchair accessible.

“Flecks®has a low acoustic level, reducing the noise of large groups of children and has excellent resistance to soiling and staining. It is easy to clean and remove sticky substances without affecting the surface finish.

“Flecks® comes in a variety of colours and can be poured in irregular shapes. It does not contain any harmful ingredients that could affect the children and the environment and includes anti-microbials in both urethane binder and rubber granular to prevent bacteria growth.”
