Sheffield’s newest children’s party and play venue.

A play centre has existed on this site since the mid 2000’s, formerly operated as Castaway Cove, however in 2020 with the closure of the leisure industry Daisy Ventures saw an opportunity to improve the facility and after acquiring the business undertook a 5-figure refurbishment programme to update the premises and relaunch as Buccaneer’s Bay, retaining the existing theme and iconic “Pirate Ship” play structure.

We aim to be one of the premier play & party centres in Sheffield, offering traditional soft play along with additional games, activities and the indoor bouncy castle, with the intent to offer further enhancements over time.

Food and Drink is as much a part of the play and party experience and with our refurbished kitchen we intend to offer a range of traditional and healthy options, including catering for gluten free and vegetarian customers and introducing for the first time at this site Vegan options to cater for as wide a range of customers as possible.

We aim to continue the community focused approach for the facility including:

Kids Together Club for parents with children with additional needs
Free referrals from the NHS to support anti-obesity and pro-exercise programs
