Find Mattel Play! at Livepool's favourite attraction, the Albert Dock.
Based on the popular TV characters that children know and love - Thomas & Friends, Bob the Builder and Fireman Sam - inspire your child’s imagination with over 13,000 square feet of interactive adventure play across three uniquely themed zones.
Once inside you don’t sit and watch, but instead it is your child’s creativity, physicality and natural curiosity that brings their favourite characters and stories to life.
Begin your adventure with Thomas and Rosie as you explore the Island of Sodor from Knapford Station to Tidmouth Sheds and Farmer McColl’s farm. Grab your tool belt and hard hat and lose yourself in the adventures of Bob and Wendy as they construct projects using a foundation of determination and teamwork. Be transported to the Welsh village of Pontypandy where you can climb aboard Jupiter, explore the Ocean Rescue Centre and put fires out at sea, just like our heroes next door Fireman Sam and Penny!
With free entry to the on-site café and retail area, as well as two themed party areas for your special celebrations and an interactive green screen experience, Mattel Play! is one of the most unique family attractions in Liverpool.
