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

Where do you go on the Gold Coast if you want to find GLOW IN THE DARK Putt Putt Golf, and a Balladium – the fast-paced, interactive ball blasting game played in an eye-popping black light arena, AND a giant indoor playground maze with a triple-run slide?

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

Tabatinga Tweed Heads is the BEST Indoor Playground!

It’s our number one of Tweed Heads attractions for families.

Take a look below for a sneak peek, plus all the details of how to get here, entry fees and more.

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.

Without question.

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.

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.

If you are looking for things to do in Tweed heads with kids, Tabatinga should be number one.

Number two would be Spring Loaded Trampoline Park in Banora Point about 10 mins away.

We love both.
