Touch FM LIVE from Namco FunScape!

Touch FM will be broadcasting LIVE from Namco FunScape, Riverside, Tamworth on December 17th from 10AM - 12PM! Join Mark to find out all about the UK's first indoor beach!

Kids Beach is a futuristic children’s contained play area, which is both fun and educational and utilises projectors, in order to create the effect of waves and sea creatures.


Children use special ‘buckets’ to catch and identify the sea life that is washed in by the waves onto the sand and can check off each variety against a dedicated chart. Each successfully caught creature will then be held in a pond for the children to see.


“This will be the first ever Kids Beach attraction to be sited in the UK,” says Trevor Sutton, Leisure Equipment Controller at Namco UK. “We thought it would be particularly well received at the Tamworth PAC-MAN Play centre as the existing dedicated enclosed sand pit is so popular and geographically the town is a long way from the sea!  We are incredibly excited about this ‘edutainment’ offer and believe it will present a great opportunity for young children to build their sensory skills, whilst learning about ocean life.”


Kids Beach is manufactured by BANDAI NAMCO of Japan, one of the world’s leading video game design houses. 

"Our fun softplay areas provide heaps of fun for children up to eight years old, in a safe and secure indoor environment, while you chill out in the adjoining café."
