Smileez Indoor Playground and Cafe has been a local favourite of Gold Coast families for many, many years. It’s been on our ‘Rainy Days on the GC’ list for a while now, so when we heard that it was under new management, we just had to visit for ourselves and find out what changes were in store for the centre.
It may have been a few years since we walked through the doors (about 10!) but the magic and excitement is still the same. Colourful play areas, welcoming cafe and friendly staff instantly put parents at ease (and fill kids with excitement!).
All of the old favourites are still there:
Plus the new owners have given the centre a huge spring clean and are undertaking a lot of new improvements!
Sensory Sessions every Wednesday 3pm-5pm*
Wheelie Wednesdays 9am-12pm (fun with scooters, cars, bikes, walkers and more)
Disco Parties available to book Fridays 6pm-8pm
Free WIFI with coffee purchase (they have MERLO coffee! This is AWESOME)
A healthy sandwich bar
A new menu with a focus on healthy and affordable options
A new range of party options including healthy platters
Community activities to support local parents
More special fun on different days of the week!
Maybe it’s been a while since you took the kids to Smileez for a play? Now is the time to check it out again! Smileez offers a lot for children, but there are also a host of benefits for parents too! It’s a great place to meet friends and family for a coffee, complete some work or study while your children play, connect with other parents for a playgroup or even have a birthday party (with host included!).
A couple of things to make your visit easy-peasy:
1. Bring socks as they must be worn on the play equipment! If you forget, there are socks available for purchase.
2. If there is no parking directly out the front, drive around the back of the Smileez building where there is plenty of customer parking.
So call your friends and bring the kids – the team at Smileez is looking forward to seeing you!
