A children’s play centre has been slammed on social media by parents who are outraged by its $48 entrance fee.
Rainbow Town Play Centre in Glen Waverley, Victoria, boasts a ninja warrior course, a rock climbing wall, ball pit, toddler’s playground, mini car track and trampolines – the perfect place to burn off some extra energy.
But a post by The Honest Mumma has gone viral after it revealed the prices parents would be forking out for a few hours in the centre.

‘Rainbow Town Play Centre is now open and the kids are going to love it,’ she wrote on Facebook.
‘There are three entry zones. Zone A is $38 entry, zone B is $28 and zone A and B is $48.
‘At the moment they have a crazy special with 20 per cent off entry for June and 50 per cent off entry for under 3’s.’
While the discounts are certainly enticing they weren’t enough to stop parents from complaining about the overall price list.
‘Are the ball pits diamond encrusted for that price?’ One woman said.
‘The prices are disgusting. Only people with $$$$ can afford this. My son saw this post and really got his hopes up just to be disappointed again because mummy can’t afford an almost $50 entry fee plus lunch and petrol,’ another said.
A third added: ‘With five kids I would need to sell a kidney or two.’
The centre has only opened one zone so far – which makes entry $38 – but from next month all areas will become available to the public.
It will be open on the weekends and public holidays before moving to a full weekday schedule.
Many noted that their competitor JPark in Oakleigh is less than half the price at $18 a session and they have very similar equipment

But Rainbow Town’s centre manager Parker Zhai didn’t seem phased by the pricing, according to the Herald Sun.
‘We are not too worried [with the pricing],’ he said.
‘The place is actually massive and children can play the whole day for that price.
‘We don’t charge parents [to get in] and food and drink prices are reasonable.’
