Head Over Heels Wilmslow Parties - Frequently Asked Questions


When is the best time to have a party?

During the weekends and holidays during the winter months are our busiest times, with 11am until 4:30pm being the busiest times during the day. Although there are no guarantees, early morning parties are usually the quietest.

However, weekdays during school term time the centre is generally quieter. So why not take advantage of our special discounted school day party packages and Celebration Meal's in the cafe.

What should my children wear on the equipment?

Both children and adults must be wearing socks whilst on the main playframe and toddler area. Arms and legs should be covered to reduce the risk of friction burns on the slides. Clothes with cords that could get caught in the play equipment should not be worn in the play area.

Children's and adult socks are usually available to purchase at reception if needed.

Are there any age restrictions?

Yes. The main playframe is designed for children aged 4 and over up to a maximum height of 1.55cm. Adults are allowed on the playframe for supervision purposes only if required.

Children in excess of the 1.55m height restriction are not allowed on the play frame even for supervisory purposes.

At quieter times, children aged under 4 may play on the main playframe with adult supervision at all times. The slides are not recommended for this age group.

The designated toddler area is strictly for 3's and under only with adult supervision at all times. Please note, older children are not permitted to supervise or play with younger children in the Toddler Area.
