A NEW soft play centre in Dunfermline is set to be out of this world.

Play Planet will open its doors at 1pm today and its owners expect children and adults to be "blown away".

Gioca Leisure Ltd own The Ball Room snooker hall on Queen Anne Street and have turned the floor above it into a massive venue for kids and parents to have fun and relax.

With a huge space-themed play area, a soft football astro, go-karts, a cafe and a baby and toddlers' area, the previously vacant space has had a large transformation.

Lauren Baillie, assistant manager, told the Press: "I think people are going to be shocked by what we have.

"I was astonished when I first walked in and saw the space we had to have fun with.

"We're right in the town centre and we've been very lucky to have this perfect opportunity to provide parents a soft play area for kids and adults to enjoy.

"There wasn't anywhere like this in Dunfermline, and the response we've had from mums and dads on Facebook shows that there's a real demand for it.

"The feedback we've had already has been crazy. It's reached thousands of people not just in the town, but across Fife."

They anticipate on having a 'soft opening' today, with a full opening after Christmas.

The mainframe area will feature slides, tunnels, rope bridges, bouncy balls and more, while the baby and toddlers' area will have an ice age theme.

Two party rooms can be tailored for any need, and annual memberships to Play Planet will be available.

The cafe has 30 tables and a full menu and a selection of barista style coffees to choose from.

"It really is off the charts for a soft play centre," Lauren continued.

"We have a great kitchen and chef and there's going to be something for everyone."

It is the first foray into the soft play business for the Italian family-run company, which has married couple Davide and Jenny Perella at the helm of Play Planet.

Lauren added: "Our soft opening will give people a chance to have a look around and see what we have here, and we cannot wait to see their faces.

"It's a family business and we're all very much 'kid-orientated'.

"We love kids and, most importantly, we know what kids love. We've got it all covered.

"We still have some things to finish off, so the soft opening will have discounted prices as we're probably around 90 per cent finished just now.

"We can't wait to open. We're all very excited."

The second floor of the Queen Anne Street building is 1,350 square metres in size and is above The Ball Room on the first floor, and the British Heart Foundation furniture and electrical store at ground level.
