Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Chipmunks is filthy me and my son were playing through the big play area when I noticed, there was mold everywhere and growing on top of the play area. Not impressed as all the dust and mold fall on to the kids. Chipmunks staff is very unprofessional when coming to overwhelming situations. A chipmunk employee was very rude and had asked for “ one outs “ after work. Overall experience/s terrible. Me and my son now go to the New Lynn Chipmunks.

Was looking for a place to celebrate my sons 1st birthday and although I wasn't too pleased with the price and hours allowed, I kept in mind its my sons day! I went in to Manukau branch, looked, discussed the rules, signed the paper work and paid the deposit. Everything was set or so I thought but luckily I phoned in the day before the birthday to clarify some details. Only to be told I have been booked for the Botany branch. As upsetting as it was the staff member who handled my complaint was very nice and suggested she take over but but I could no longer trust them. I cancelled and got my deposit back and ended up doing our very own indoor playground at our church hall.

Our kids (4yo and 7yo) absolutely loved the playground and we were there for 90 mins - plenty of time to explore every nook and cranny. The weather was poor so it's great to have an indoor playground option for kids, BUT it's still cold inside too so dress warm. We paid $17 per child, and parents/spectators are free.

On the downside, the toilet facilities and seating area required some cleaning as some areas (table tops, chairs, some floor, bathroom door handles) were sticky. As long as we were there no one cleared or wiped down tables. BUT the playground itself was pretty clean. Sadly the ball maze game in the ball pit didn't work so I hope they fix it soon. There were some really cool games in there.

You can't bring in your own food or drinks, except for baby food, so you have to buy from their cafe. They gave hot water for free to let us warm up our baby food for our 7 month old baby).

Overall, the kids had so much fun and we would absolutely bring them back because of that. It's a great option for rainy day activities that let kids burn off steam.

This place is amazing for the children!! There are age ranged activities of soft play from babies/toddlers to ages 5-8. My kid loves it!

BUT.....As a parent it’s a bit of a germ zone. They have a lovely set up there play zone wise but it’s just nothing outside of the play area is clean. The floor doesn’t seem sanitary or washed, the party rooms just look like like they were licked over with a basic wipe down and never deep cleaned.

Toilets don’t look like they got touched from the recent renovation. They are still super, super, super Grimey and a bit run down which is such a shame!

The place is such a kids dream but a parents nightmare.

Has had a total makeover.
It's totally amazing compared to the old rundown one.
There's a whole lot to do for the young ones to refine their gross-motor skills.
I personally think it's really cool and have noticed the influx of bday bookings.
Well done Manukau :)

Could do with a clean but kids had fun and nothing water can't fix. Or soap for that matter. Food ok. Lots of space for kids to run and play. More lounges would be nice and old stuff out now and then...otherwise. ok place but yeah, needs more frequent cleaning.

Clean, tidy and great place for the kids to unwind, let their hair down, make as much noise as they want, and have fun!
