A new indoor soft play area has opened.

Level Up welcomed children for the first time at the Withdean Sports Complex in Tongdean Lane, Brighton on Sunday.

The facility, which is a joint venture between Brighton and Hove City Council and Freedom Leisure, has facilities for all ages including a racing slide, a spiral slide, a ball room, a rope bridge and a sensory area.

There will be activities such as treasure hunts for younger children and competitive challenges for older children.

Weekly sessions will be held for children with special educational needs and disabilities, as well as weekly supervised sessions for people under five-years-old.

Councillor Alan Robins, chairman of the culture, heritage, sport, tourism and economic development committee, said: "It's wonderful to see that the doors of Level Up have now opened, and children of all ages can enjoy this much needed new play experience.

"Ensuring that children are physically active from an early age is really important for their growth and development, so having a facility that is fun, social, and challenging will bring huge benefits for families living in the city, now and in years to come.”
