Whipsnade Zoo's indoor soft play area

Each element of Hullabazoo Indoor Play is designed around different habitats enabling your children to have fun and mimic their favourite animals. You’ll be able to watch your little ones crawl through the garden, climb like an insect or journey through the Antarctic to become a penguin sliding down the ice.

Our Hullabazoo indoor soft play area is located in our Hullabazoo Children's Farm (at the heart of the Zoo) and we have separate areas for under 3's and 3-10 years olds to allow everyone to play safely.

Entry to our indoor soft play area, Hullabazoo, is by pre-booking only. Hullabazoo Indoor Play tickets are free of charge and will only appear 24 hours in advance of your chosen slot.

To access your Exclusive Gold Member/Fellow/Patron Hullabazoo Indoor Play session, please enter the primary member CRM ID into the Offer Box at the start of the booking journey. You can find your membership CRM ID on your membership card – it's the up to 7-digit number on the back. Should that ID return an error message, it might not be the correct ID, in which case we’re encouraging you to try the CRM ID of other members of your membership.

We are trialing relaxed sessions for those with additional needs. These run at 9.30am weekend days only. Please see our accessibility page and click the accessible activities and relaxed openings tab for further details and to book.
