Activate Waterford is Waterford City’s most innovative indoor family activity centre incorporating a children’s soft play area, bowling, climbing & bouldering, an intimate 3D cinema, café and lots more.

Activate Waterford is a locally owned family activity centre in the heart of Waterford City and a winner of "Best Indoor Leisure Facility". There is something for all the family, whether that be a children’s soft play area, bowling, a high wall climbing and bouldering area, a laser tag arena, plus lots more.

Activate Waterford promises a great day out for all ages and the friendly, motivated team aim to make your day the most memorable it can be. The centre has been designed with adults, teens, and children in mind and being fully wheelchair accessible, aims to support and encourage a healthy and active lifestyle for everyone, without having to rely on the weather.

There is something for everyone to do. Activate for kids is our 3-floor soft play area with specially designed areas for toddlers and pre-walkers. Climbing and bouldering walls offer an exciting opportunity to scale a high wall with qualified instructors, or free climb in one of their bouldering rooms. These are an excellent way to test your limits and scale your way to the top.

There is also 10-pin bowling, suitable for all ages. Let your competitive side show and see who will strike out.

The neon laser tag arena is where the real action happens. Shoot your way to victory and be the last person standing whilst making your way around in only neon lighting.

The café has something for all taste buds, even the picky ones. After a busy day of activity, enjoy a freshly baked pizza with a signature home-made marinara sauce.
