"Our vision was brought to life by a team of Yorkshire businesses including Unconventional Design in York and Steel Line based in Sheffield.

"The finished product reflects the hard work and talent to be found in the county and it truly stands apart from other play areas of its kind.”

Feedback from the many visitors over the last month has been outstanding, with one TripAdvisor review reading: "The day was an amazing adventure for our four-year-old and he played non-stop from 10am till 5.30pm and he still hadn’t tried everything this place has to offer.

"The new Playhive is incredible, on another level to any other indoor play area we have been to.”

The Playhive represents a £3.5m investment into local tourism and occupies a doughnut shaped building at Stockeld Park featuring four interconnected, interactive play zones.

At the centre stands a 33-foot tower with a long spiral slide to ride down.
