FEC: 360 Play opens in Farnborough
Indoor play brand adds sixth centre
Indoor play specialist 360 Play has opened its latest centre in Farnborough.
The 25,000 square feet play venue features 17,500 square feet of play space, with the capacity to hold 500 people at a time. It is the FEC chain’s sixth opening following Stevenage, Redditch, Milton Keynes, Leicester and Basildon.
“This is a really good site with good flow and good communications, which is key. We’ve been looking for a site on the M3 Corridor for a few years, but that’s how long it can take sometimes,” said 360 Play boss, Duncan Philips.
Among the key attractions are a three-storey play structure, family bumper cars and a carousel. The rides are supplied by specialist Italian manufacturer IE Park/SOLI Bumper cars which has supplied the same attractions to all the previously opened centres. Additionally, the 360 Street creative play zone, a key feature at all 360 Play sites, is made up of individual play units such as a fire station, supermarket, pizza parlour, vets, car garage/body shop and dressing up shop. There is also a party zone offering a dedicated area for children’s parties.
