Welcome to Active Nation’s soft play. A place where kids are free to play, party and have fun.


Our Filton Funhouse soft play has a Jurassic theme and provides a safe and controlled environment where children can engage in physical activity. The soft, foam-based structures allow children to crawl, climb and slide without the risk of injury that might be present in a traditional outdoor play area.

Designed for children aged 10 years and under (our Toddler Zone is for under 3s) our Filton Funhouse is the ultimate destination for endless laughter and imaginative play.

Children must be supervised at all times by an accompanying adult over the age of 18.

What are the rules of soft play?

To ensure a safe and enjoyable environment in the soft play area, please adhere to the following guidelines:

1. All children must use the restroom and thoroughly wash their hands before entering the play area.

2. Shoes are to be removed prior to entry, and socks or suitable foot coverings should be worn at all times within the soft play zone.

3. Sharp objects are strictly prohibited in the soft play area to prevent injury.

4. To maintain cleanliness and safety, no food, drinks, or chewing gum is allowed on or near the play equipment.

5. Respectful behaviour is expected at all times. Fighting, bullying, or any form of abusive or aggressive conduct is unacceptable and will result in immediate action.

6. Active Nation reserves the right to impose bans on the use of the soft play facilities if these rules are not followed.

By following these rules, we can ensure a fun and secure environment for everyone.

Is there an age limit for participants?

Certainly, the general sessions in our soft play area are exclusively designed for children aged 10 and under.

What should I anticipate for the session?

Each soft play session spans one hour and requires advance reservation. We kindly ask that you check in at the reception 10 minutes prior to your scheduled booking time.

As an adult, what do my responsibilities include?

1. Providing constant supervision to your children to ensure their safety and well-being within the play area.

2. Monitoring your children’s interactions with the equipment to ascertain that they use it safely and appropriately for their capabilities.

3. Promptly informing a staff member about any behavioural issues that may arise, to maintain a positive and secure environment for all.

4. Reporting any damages or issues with the soft play equipment to a staff member, to ensure prompt repairs and maintain safety standards.

Your vigilance and cooperation are essential in creating a safe and enjoyable experience for everyone.

What should my child wear?

For your child’s safety and comfort, we suggest dressing them in a long-sleeved shirt and long pants, such as tracksuit bottoms, leggings, or tights, accompanied by socks. To prevent any accidents, please avoid loose clothing and jewellery, as these can easily catch on equipment. Shoes should be taken off before entering the play area.

My child has a disability, can they still take part?

Yes, wherever possible we offer equal access to all children. Please contact us to discuss their individual disabilities and requirements.

What is the capacity of Filton Funhouse's Soft Play area, and will I share the space with others not in my party?

Filton Funhouse accommodates up to 20 children aged 10 and under in our soft play area simultaneously. Unless you opt for a private booking of the soft play space, you will be sharing the area with other guests throughout your visit.

Is there a cafe?

Indeed, our RE-FUEL cafe is conveniently located near the main reception and Elm Park, providing an array of drinks and snacks for you to enjoy before or after soft play sessions. Please be aware that consumption of these items within the soft play area is not permitted.

Is there a car park?

Yes, we have a temporary car park available until Active Nation Filton has fully opened.
