Would you go to soft play this week?
(If you would normally go- I know lots of people don't like it anyway)

No and I think people that have been going to soft plays are absolutely mad.

Ew no

Mummyme87 Sun 01-Nov-20 17:29:32

Yes. I went a few weeks ago, the lack of masks I found bizarre but I went.

AntiHop Sun 01-Nov-20 17:29:35

Definitely not.

Gawd YES. I will do everything I'm allowed as long as I'm allowed.
There is no moral high ground in making up extra rules to follow.

I plan on going. Son goes to nursery so exposed and I've been working in retail till Wednesday.

Who knows when they can reopen again so want to support them whilst I can.

Also they are cleaner then they have ever been.

Good god you couldn’t pay me enough! Ridiculous decision making.

We've been 3 times over the half term, had to wear masks in all of them except when eating/drinking, and the sessions were managed well so not at all busy.
Also went trampolining which felt less safe as no masks were required and it was super busy, wouldn't go there again in a hurry!

Yes it was brilliant not being packed to the rafters and the kids had a great time which they thoroughly deserved.

Notlostjustexploring Sun 01-Nov-20 17:39:23

Yes, because I want it to stay open. I was chatting to the owner a few weeks ago, and they are (obviously) really struggling. So I'll continue to support them while I still can.

My reasoning is that if I was comfortable taking my son before he had his MMR when there was a measles outbreak in the area, the risk to him then was greater than now, especially with the lower numbers and enhanced cleaning currently employed.

Also, our numbers are really quite low and I'm a little peeved we've been caught up in a national lockdown.

We went twice last week, won't be going this week due to work and nursery. If we were off we would go.

I took my 5 year old to soft play last week on a teacher training day. It's what we usually would have done so I just thought oh feck it. It was fine, very, very quiet, all the adults were in masks, all the balls and other loose bits had been removed.

I also went to a trampoline park on another day. I would definitely not go there again, it was completely ridiculous.

purpleme12 Sun 01-Nov-20 17:46:15

I have taken her to soft play a few times since they've reopened.
I feel like I'm never sure what to do anymore in life

The ones round here haven't opened since the last lockdown. If they were open I would go. I'm a childminder and I've been demented with no groups or places to go with the kids.

SpeedofaSloth Sun 01-Nov-20 17:48:09

Mine are too old now, but if it was one which I thought was clean and usually well-run then I might have done, yes.

AiryFairyMum Sun 01-Nov-20 17:48:36

No way!

cabbageking Sun 01-Nov-20 17:48:48

I am aware of the amount of wee, excrement, vomit and dribble etc in a normal soft play area normally. I would not take my children there due to this anyway.

Keepgoing88 Sun 01-Nov-20 17:50:19

I’ll be queuing at the doors!

mum2jakie Sun 01-Nov-20 17:51:31

Absolutely yes if my kids were young enough. It's going to be a bleak bloody winter!
