Wacky Warehouse at The Moulsham Inn Chelmsford

Wacky Warehouse is a small soft play located inside the Moulsham Inn (formally the Queen B Pub) in Chelmsford. The soft play is upstairs and has it’s own bar serving non alcoholic drinks and toilets.

The Play Frame at Wacky Warehouse Chelmsford

The soft play area isn’t huge but it’s quite open which allows space for the kids to run around in it which they seem to love. There are two sides with the right hand side aimed more at younger children and the lefthand side for slightly older children. They welcome children up to the age if 12 but realistically, its the under 8s who get most from this soft play.

At the edge of the play frame are mats to keep safe children who fall out when playing. These mats are sort of hinged to the play frame and when lifted up an dropped back down they make a very satisfying noise. Be prepared to hear it a lot!

Other Features

At the bar area you can get hot and cold drinks and slushies. You can also order for the pub menu and eat in the soft play. Entry prices can be found on the Wacky Warehouse website but they do som cheap deals for daytime visits during term time for very young children. The website lists the opening times but beware that these can change if they have a party booked in.

You can use the car park at the Moulsham Inn pub which is shared with Lidl and Farm Foods so does sometimes get quite busy.

Parties at Wacky Warehouse

Wacky warehouse offers parties in the soft play and there are actually great for younger children. I’ve been to several 3rd/4th/5th birthdays there and the kids have a great time. They have an separate enclosed area for the kids to eat for parties and there is special chair for the birthday child to sit in which is a nice touch. They also provide a good party pack if you don’t want to do your own so it makes for a really easy party.

The food at the parties is made in the pub kitchen, so is generally better than you get at most soft play parties. You can also order platters for the parents to snack which are a selection of starters and really nice.
