What a fantastic visit to santa for the sensory evening. Congratulations to everyone and thank you for organizing it. Kids had a wonderful time. My son said it was heaven. It was all so relaxed no one was rushed and of course ‘the real santa’ was amazing!

I am the Principal of a Secondary School in Clonmel & last Monday the staff of my Autism Unit rang to see if Activate could facilitate 20 boys as our plans for our day out had to be cancelled due to bad weather. Despite the late notice they were ready & waiting for my group when they arrived an hour or so later. They had a fantastic day and especially enjoyed the climbing wall facilitated by a fantastic young man who was wonderful with our boys. Well done & thanks for a great day.

From the moment I rang about an inquiry I knew this was the place I wanted to hold our company sports and social club event. The whole process was absolutely effortless especially when booking for a large crowd. Eleanor dealt with us from start to finish and even cooked some of the nicest pizzas around 5* food from the kitchen. I can't praise the place and the staff enough. Would highly recomend the place. We are in the process of booking our next event thanks a million Eleanor for your help.

Great fun was had and the pizza chips and refreshments were delish!!! All the kids loved it and say thanx so much!!! Great facility to have in Waterford as there's nothing else unfortunately for older kids/teenagers to do!!

Looking for somewhere new and exciting to visit for your school tour this year? Why not visit ACTIVATE, the number one choice for SCHOOL TOURS!

With over 25,000 square feet, ACTIVATE offers numerous activities – Waterford’s largest SOFT PLAY area which includes 3 floors of fun-filled play equipment, including large slides, a ball pit, rope climbs and lots more for the kids to explore.

Laser Tag at ACTIVATE is a fantastic way to “ready the troops”. Our fully trained staff will ready the troops with hi-tech laser guns and set the game in motion, supervising throughout, and announcing the victor at the end. This activity is available for 6+ years and adults to enjoy.

Climbing & Bouldering is one of the fastest growing sports around now, and at ACTIVATE you can experience first hand what this sport is all about! Our highly experienced instructors will guide you and your group through our bouldering rooms and not forgetting our high wall but at the same time you and your group will be having masses of fun while doing so!

Roller Skating at ACTIVATE is always a “winner”! Roller-Skating is not just great fun, but it is also a great exercise. All major muscle groups are used when roller-skating, making it an exciting and enjoyable way for children (and adults) to get active.

Ten Pin Bowling is the perfect family activity that can be enjoyed by all ages from children as young as 3 years. Here in Activate we have 6 lanes of the latest interactive bowling with the touch screen consoles on each lane allowing you to play a variety of games, challenge another lane, take photos and lots more.

But wait there’s more…. Under the same roof we have a CINEMA which can seat up to 25 (special requests) so you can sit back and relax. We also have MINI GOLF which proves to be great for the whole family. ACTIVATE is fully wheel chair accessible, staff are first aid and fire safety trained. We pride ourselves on our cleanliness, which is one of our pillars since opening 3 years ago.

We ensure a “stress free” school tour but… should teachers want to get involved, all they must do is ask and we will ensure they will have as much fun (if not more) as the students.
