Indoor play with a side of chocolate-chip muffins? We'll be there in 5!
If you’re a family with kids, chances are you’ve probably heard of or even been to a Croc’s Playcentre, and if you haven’t yet, you’re definitely missing out! The Croc’s Playcentre franchise is practically an institution in Australia – with 22 centres across the nation, it’s safe to say Croc’s Playcentres know how to show kids (and parents) a fun time.
The Croc’s Playcentre adventure began in 2008 when Melbourne Dads Brett Aldons and Lawrence Cusdin saw a need for more kid-friendly facilities where you didn’t have to rely on good weather to keep the kids entertained. They nurtured this idea with their first indoor play centre in Knox, Victoria, which became so successful they went on to open the largest indoor play centre in Australia in Pakenham in 2010. From then on the Croc’s Playcentre brand grew in leaps and bounds and the rest, as they say, is history!
If you’ve never been to a Croc’s Playcentre before you might be wondering, why is this play centre brand any different from the hundreds of others out there? Aside from being one of the first indoor play centres in Australia, Croc’s Playcentres go above and beyond your average indoor play centres by delivering:
Muffin Break Cafes
A decent coffee is top of the list of priorities at any playground, but when you throw a mouth-watering muffin into the mix, now you’re cooking with gas! Every Croc’s Playcentre has an onsite Muffin Break Cafe serving delicious coffee and freshly baked food every day – need we say more?
Dedicated Toddler And Baby Areas
Indoor play centres that mingle all kids ages together can be rather dangerous. Croc’s Playcentres have dedicated toddler and baby areas so that the little ones can go at their own pace without being trampled by the bigger kids. These baby and toddler areas include soft play and sensory activities to encourage imaginative play.
Mr Croc’s Club
We’ve never heard of a kids’ play centre that allows you free entry every 10th time you visit! The Mr Croc’s Club is free to join and includes plenty of perks, including free entry every 10th visit and $20 off birthday party bookings. Conditions apply.
Spotlessly Clean Play
Spotlessly clean is how things are run at every Croc’s Playcentre, so parents no longer have to worry about grotty sand pits and yucky chewing gum under park benches. With every Croc’s centre receiving a thorough cleaning before and after opening hours, parents can relax and enjoy watching their little ones play without having to worry about them putting something dangerous in their mouth, or stepping in any questionable liquids.
FREE Entry For Parents
That's right - parents go FREE at all Croc's Playcentres any day of the week!
Everyone can enjoy Snappy Hour on the first Thursday of every month where entry is FREE! All you have to do is follow the Croc's National Facebook page, message them the words "Snappy Hour" and every month you'll receive your FREE pass via Messenger. Other conditions apply.
Creative Birthday Party Packages
Croc’s Playcentres also cater for kids’ birthday parties with their excellent value ‘Build your own’ party packages.
