My dad took his grandsons (my sons) to the Inside The Brick for the Lego time while we visited Melbourne from Perth for holiday. My boys absolutely LOVED it! Definitely we will make another visit again. 5 stars!

Had my son's 8th birthday here and it was great! The first time I haven't organised the party myself. No stress, no cleaning up and happy kids! What more could you ask for! The staff were sensational too. Thank-you!!!!

Today as our end of year school celebration we booked in for a session with 25 special needs kids aged 8-10. Every child was engaged and entertained. Your venue was perfect and staff fantastic. You gave us not only a great day but also a great deal. We were so pleased we are already talking about returning in 2015. Thank you, thank you, thank you :)
