Our plan, as owners of a softplay in Aylesbury was always to grow.

We started Stay and Play in November 2019 and it was hugely popular, but unfortunately Covid struck in 2020 and we have been closed longer than we were open! Despite this, we remained positive and stuck to our initial plans. Our model is simple, by establishing ourselves in busy shopping centres, we become not just a destination attraction but a ‘pop in’ for friends meeting or just a break from shopping. We have a large, quieter comfy area with sofas and wingback armchairs as we like to take of the adults too! We’ve always had our eye on neighbouring Hemel Hempstead, researching  and being aware of its large population, quantity of schools and the footfall of the centre itself. We love the Riverside Shopping centre and adjoining Marlowes, it has a huge variety of shops, market traders and restaurants.

We pride ourselves on a clean, safe environment, with facilities to suit all visitors. We plan to replicate our fantastic team in Aylesbury by employing local talent in the shape of bakers and cooks. We are constantly praised for our home cooked, healthy food options and cakes baked and decorated on the premises. We offer a wide choice of loose leaf teas, and options for coffee made the way you like it by our Baristas. Some locals will remember the premises as a Chinese restaurant (Aroma) and then Jungle Mania. The concept of the previous softplay is the exact same, fun! But we will put our own Stay and Play spin on it.

We are located opposite TK Maxx next to Sprinkles Gelato.
