What a fantastic visit to Santa for the sensory evening. Congratulations to everyone and thank you for organising 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!

Thank you Activate and especially Santa for making my daughter's first Santa visit so special and memorable. She's 10 months old so was either going to smile or roar �Santa was absolutely brilliant with her and we have some amazing photos to treasure.

Brought my daughter out today to see Santa she is only 2 and has a proper fear of him, he was amazing with her took his time and finally won her around and then came in playing games with her. I would highly recommend this Santa and will be back every year. Also one of your elves in particular called Molly was amazing with my little girl and i want to say a big thanks to her she went above and beyond to ease her into it, a real asset.

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.
