INSIDE: Everything you need to know about Tabatinga Tweed Heads.

You’ll find ALL of this, AND MORE, inside Tabatinga Tweed Heads, (part of Seagulls Club).

Guide to Tabatinga Tweed Heads
The Ultimate Indoor Playground on the Gold Coast
Tabatinga Tweed Heads is spotlessly clean, with not a rip or a tear in sight, and that alone is why you should put this indoor playground at the top of your ‘things to do on the Gold Coast with kids’ list.
We’ve visited lots of indoor playgrounds over the years, and this one tops the lot.
Tabatinga Indoor Play Space
Tabatinga Tweed Heads is NOT like those grubby, petri-dish indoor playgrounds, where you keep the sanitary wipes handy and swab down every surface before you touch it.
There’s no ripped pile of magazines, dirty dish covered tables, or scraps on the floor, and this actually blew our mind.
Tabatinga Tweed Heads is more like a grown up’s RSL or surf club restaurant WITH an epic kids play area attached, as opposed to a kids indoor playground with a snack food kiosk, and it makes a huge difference.
What to do at Tabatinga Seagulls
At Tabatinga, kids can:
- climb the multi-story play maze structure
- ride the slides
Glow in the Dark Mini Golf
Play Glow in the Dark 6 Hole Mini Golf
Join the fun in the 10 Cannon Balladium Ball blaster zone. It’s magnificent!
Or Skip and step on the interactive play floor
4 Car Bumper Car Arena
The newest addition to the fun!
Movie Chill Out zone
Chill out on the lounges in the movie zone
Toddlers have their very own play area with soft spongy blocks to navigate, sculptures to climb, and baby slides.
Scattered about, there’s also arcade games where you earn tickets to win a prize.
(NB: Pay by coin. Not included in entry price)
Tabatinga Play Centre gated for families
Tabatinga indoor playground is gated too, which means you CAN sit in peace and read, or work, or chat to other mums and dads uninterrupted, without worrying about where the kids have gone now.
It’s air-conditioned too.
Is it obvious we love Tabatinga at Seagulls?
This Tweed family fun centre is a welcome change.
