The £1.7m attraction will open on December 1
A new family attraction offering a “cutting edge” interactive experience is set to open in Derby next month.
The Injoy Centre will open at the Riverlights complex, along the Morledge.
According to bosses, the £1.7m centre will take the idea of soft play “to another level”.
Set to officially open on December 1, the centre claims to have one of the largest soft play areas in the UK and a family-friendly climbing wall.
The activity complex also boasts a cutting-edge interactive room where children’s creations come to life on the walls around them.
Described as an “innovative and immersive experience”, the room allows its visitors to lose themselves in an imaginary world.
Children and adults can dig for digital creatures in kinetic sand, kick footballs at passing spaceships and watch their own artwork spring to life.
Manager Richard Chandler said: “Injoy has something for every member of the family, with a range of activities suitable for babies, teenagers, students and adults all under one roof.
“The interactive room has to be seen to be believed; it mesmerises children and adults alike. It’s fantastic for children with special educational needs or those who benefit from sensory stimulation and it brings out the child in every visitor.”
Alongside the play rooms, there will be a climbing zone run by trained instructors with challenges for both children and adults.
This includes a 6m-high vertical slide and a ‘Stairway to Heaven’ climb.
There will be dedicated rooms for art workshops and cookery classes, as well as three party rooms for birthdays and group celebrations.
Children will also have the opportunity to make their own pizzas at specially designed low-level counters in the restaurant area.
The restaurant includes a fully licensed bar and free WiFi as well as a range of high-quality food.
Mr Chandler said: “We have taken the original concept for a soft play centre and taken it to another level with a genuine emphasis on quality, creating an environment the whole family can enjoy together.”
He added that Injoy does not use single-use plastic and “every conceivable object” has padding around it to protect young visitors.
The building is a three-minute walk from the Intu car park and is attached to the bus station.
The 20,000 sq ft centre also has a lift, pram storage and free lockers for coats and shoes, while the 30 new members of staff are all trained in first aid.
Next year Laser Tag will be introduced into the centre and an outside terrace overlooking the river Derwent will be created in time for the summer months.
There are a variety of packages available depending on chosen activities and the number and ages of participating children, starting at £3 for two hours soft play for a child aged under three.
