Wild Cubs Free Play now open at The Exchange Ilford
We have seen various developments to The Exchange in the past year, with the most recent being the new guest facilities that were unveiled in September much to the delight of guests. We have further added to our community offer by unveiling the Wild Cubs Free Play, an interactive children's play area that has already proved to be a massive hit within the community.
The first of its kind in the UK and the second in Europe, the safari-inspired play area provides a safe and educational space for children to slide, crawl and climb through, while parents can take a break and look on as their kids explore the space. The new family zone and is proving to be hugely popular, helping to deliver a footfall increase of nearly 2% so far in 2018.
The play area includes a Savanna wildlife theme, featuring animals’ sculptures such as an interlinked giraffe and baby, lioness, elephants and meerkat mounds. Along with a log ramp, the creatively-shaped pieces provide a variety of ways for children to explore with a wall-mounted Matrix Wall Panel featuring an interactive LED lighting system that responds to human touch with changing colour, brightness and patterns. There will also be an immersive art panel for painting, drawing and puzzles, all of which contribute to a state-of-the-art facility that guests can be proud of.
