Very sadly both Wannabees locations have closed permanently… boo hoo hoo… 


To find other excellent Sydney indoor play centres just click through to this post.


I am leaving this post here live in memorial of a play centre where myself and the twins had SO MUCH FUN. We are so sad it has closed down.

Wannabees is a play centre deluxe, with the added benefit of play leaders and fantastic dress ups and imaginative play spaces.

The play centre has been set up like a small town, a play leader takes children to visit and play in different areas. It’s such fun.

This indoor play centre with a difference is really a delight for young kids. We visited recently with the twins, who are six years old and they really enjoyed it. There were lots of younger children there and some older ones too.

It’s best to book in and to arrive in good time for either the morning or afternoon session to start. Our session started at 10am, with a play leader gathering the children around the stage and starting off with the Wannabees song.  She then explained some rules like always tidying up what has been used, and keeping shoes on in the play rooms.

Here’s the list of all the places the kids can play:

Post Office
Honey Room cafe
Police Station
Fire Station
TV Studio
Doctors Surgery
Fashion shop
Beauty salon
Interior Design room

There’s also a large stage, a climbing wall, soft play areas and, of course, the huge play structure.

My two started in the fire station, they enjoyed dressing up in fireman’s jackets and hats and LOVED hosing out the (fake!) flames. Next they did some shopping at the supermarket with play money and then playing doctors and nurses, with me as the patient patient.

It’s lovely to do some imaginative play where the kids are also picking up some real life skills.

Cafe: large cafe has good menu and free wifi

Baby change: Yes, in children’s toilets

Parties are run by the play leaders
