Nestled in the central highlands of Victoria is the state’s 3rd biggest city, Ballarat, home to our newest Chipmunks Playland & Cafe. This centre’s territory has extensive reach to a population of over 115,000 which is steadily growing and open to being the ultimate party and play destination for families.
While the Covid-19 pandemic brought uncertainty to the world at the beginning of 2020, it didn’t stop Chipmunks Ballarat from getting on with the job and opening its doors in time for the festive season on 1st December 2020.
Franchisee, Varneet Singh has come with a wealth of knowledge and experience to this project, having previously owned and operated Chipmunks Caroline Springs. He’s not stopping there either, being a key stakeholder in the next much anticipated centre to open in Victoria, Chipmunks South Morang.
Set out within an 800sqm site, the centre was thoughtfully designed to maximise space while keeping an open plan outlook. Once more we are taken on an underwater adventure with clam shells, jellyfish, surfing Charlie Chipmunk and a bunch of other ocean friends to soak up. Two interconnecting party rooms neighbour the cafe looking out into the playland, an easy trip from the kitchen to the party rooms for birthday party hosts. This centre has 2 specialised play zones to suit children of all ages and abilities. Play equipment incorporates the latest technology, including an interactive slide in the Under 5 area, and an interactive ball pit suitable for all ages.
Online bookings and point of sale are only a few clicks away with Roller Digital all-in-one software. The Roller network is going from strength to strength with continued innovation and client support. Coming soon are plans to make all tickets available for purchase online, offer alternative payment methods e.g ZipPay, and yearly memberships for families.
Opening an indoor playcentre in the midst of a global pandemic may have raised a few eyebrows, though through adapting to a ‘’new normal’’ way of thinking during the fit out process and daily operations as well as implementing extra health and safety measures, we have witnessed an abundance of support no different from pre-Covid times. This much loved family entertainment venue is off to a great start!
