  • They did not let us in because my 2 year old refused to wear a face mask. He got in, started playing and they then chucked him out.

  • Unfortunately, I could not give more stars as they didn’t let us in. First of all, very difficult to find the place. I have read others commenting as well not easy to find because there are no signs and it’s true. One map shows on one road the other map shows on an other road. Some police guys helped me to finally get there. Please note if you are going alone and you have a stroller there are lots of stairs to get up there. Once we got up, the main door was closed. One lady opened and told me my son wouldn’t be allowed as it’s only from 3 years old as they have to wear masks. When I said I didn’t find any information on the website regarding the measurements she said it was posted in the ‘News’ section. As something so important like this should be front page where everyone can see it. And then she said anyways you have to book an appointment. As I looked inside it was empty. 11 o’clock and I didn’t see one kid. Many families were waiting outside. Looked very nice and organized. I love the idea of the place I wish we were allowed to get in. When I expressed my disappointment to the lady that it was hard to find, no information on the website etc she said I know, we are working on it! So work a little bit harder and at least you could have said sorry. Or something like that. ‘We appreciate you came and apologize for the inconvenience However we can’t wait for you to come back as soon as your child is older! Thank you and have a good day!’
  • This is a great place to bring the kids. There is no entry fee while the people working there are entertaining the kids. My son spent there a few hours and had a great time. Particularly for him, it was a great opportunity to practice his English, as we found out he wasn't the only non Greek child in the room.
