I've bought 'Mayhem + Magna 4 to 15' or 'Mayhem + Magna 2 to 3' tickets, but forgotten to buy Magna adult entrance tickets as well?

Don't worry, you can purchase Magna tickets separately online here. You will also be able to buy Magna tickets on the day, but you get up to a 10% discount by buying online.

My child is over 11 can they still come to Mayhem?

Yes. Magna Mayhem is primarily aimed at under 11s. However you know better than anyone else your own child’s enjoyment levels and limitations.

Can under two year olds come along?

Under two year olds are welcome and if they would like to join in with Magna Mayhem then there is a nominal charge of £1.00. This helps us to monitor the total number of children in each session and to improve the Mayhem experience for all.

The Ocean Playzone is specifically for under three year olds.

Is there a height limit?

There is no height limit for any of the inflatable equipment, it is at the discretion of the supervising adult to deem suitability for your child/children. Please kindly note you are responsible for the care and safety of the children within your party at all times when attending Magna Mayhem. Our team members will be onsite to ensure the safety of the equipment, offer advice and monitor user numbers per piece.

Is there a session suitable for children with special needs and disabilities?

The Magna Mayhem 2pm sessions on Wednesday 29th August will be our Autism Friendly SEND sessions. We have sought the advice of a number of parents, carers and organisation to do the best we can to cater for the varied needs of children with Autism. If you have any further suggestions, please let us know, we'd love to hear them.

There is no upper age limit for our Autism Friendly session, it is at the discretion of the supervising adult to deem suitability for your child/children. With the exception of the Ocean Playzone which is limited to under three year olds only. Please kindly note you are responsible for the care and safety of the children within your party at all times when attending Magna Mayhem. Our team members will be onsite to ensure the safety of the equipment, offer advice and monitor user numbers per piece.

On the day we will;

  • Provide a social story introduction to the session, clearly explaining what to expect and who to go to for help
  • Have quieter music with more gentle beats/rhythm
  • Reduce the number of children on each inflatable at one time so as not to force interaction/social demands
  • Ensure all team members are fully briefed to accommodate the needs of the children
  • Have a clear countdown to the end of the session, both visual and audible, to avoid an abrupt ending
  • Light the room to avoid excessive dark areas and limit flashing lights
  • Have a number of additional sensory activities on offer

Please kindly note the Autism Friendly SEND session is exclusive to Magna Mayhem at this time only and doesn't extend to rest of the Magna attraction at the same time. We do often hold Autism Friendly SEND access days within the attraction, please refer to our website for dates and details. 

What should children wear?

Something comfortable. Children will be bouncing and having lots of fun so please nothing with sharp zips, spikes or hard edges.

Shoes must be removed and not worn on any of the equipment. Supervising adults must be responsible for looking after shoes as there will be no designated shoe storage.

Socks must be worn at all times on the equipment. Socks can be purchased on the day from the Mayhem Cafe. 

Please no face paints, as these can stain and damage the inflatables.
