Good option for indoor games. There are many sports courts here including soccer, indoor cricket, beach volley ball, basket ball, etc. There is also a Cafe here.

Narelle Davis

Awesome establishment, well run and well managed.  We had our State netball fundraiser here and everybody, kids, parents and grandparents had a fantastic time. The food was amazing and the staff were so helpful and to top it all off, management (Ange & Craig) dedicated all the takings for the night to our team.  What amazing people!!  I have recommended to all my friends and family.


Sanket San

Play area is quite big and some challenging courses too if you wanna go for them. Good place to celebrate birthdays.


Petra Hansen

Great place for kids (and adults). Lots of different things to climb on, slide on or jump on, over or under. Safe and plenty of staff keeping an eye on things. My 5yr old nephew had a ball


Ben S

Play a lot of my indoor cricket here. Love the venue and think it’s probably the best maintained indoor sporting venue in metro Melbourne.

The play area for kids is fantastic too and my kids love playing there.

All outdoors which means they only open on warm days. But the 50m pool is great.   There are two BBQ Stoves. With water playgrounds and kids play pool, it is a great  place to spend a day with family.


Sumeena Hari

I love coming here it’s much quieter that other pools. Great diving area and great for younger kids. I have 4 boys aged between 5-14 and they all live it here just as much as me.


Peter Henley

Best pool I have been to in Melbourne to take children. So many different pools and water play areas keeps them occupied for hours. Even when it is really hot (over 40) the pool has plenty of shade and keeps everyone nice and cool! Even for toddlers there are two areas where they can explore almost by themselves quite happily and safely. Great fun for everyone!


Dmitry Yakhnov

Visited gym yesterday as a part of Premier’s Active April campaign — there were just a few people, plenty of equipment, very quiet (perhaps due to outdoors pool being shutdown for winter), large and clean change rooms.


John Nguyen

Great gym. Good facilities and great staff. For the money, the membership is amazing because you get access to the pool, gym, classes and basketball courts (if they’re not booked). It’s not too busy in the gym as well, so waiting around for a rack or machine is rarely a problem


Anthony Uakino

Great place…. 4 separate pools. 2 shallow pools are warm which is good for infants and children and the other two deep pools are cold/cooler. 1 x BBQ facilities. Best to go with a big group more cheaper. Life guards always on the move

A really cheap and fun experience. I’ve went to a different ice skating place and compared with the price, this place is quite cheap. There are also very nice and kind staff to help and assist you. You can take lessons there, eat there but most importantly you can have a lot of fun with a low budget of yours!


Sienna Thomson

This is where I learnt how to skate! This was the rink I go to as well as O’Brien’s ice house. This is my favourite rink though because of the community. Everyone’s so friendly and helpful! My mother helps out at the front desk as well so it’s a very inclusive rink as well! The teachers here are incredible and very encouraging, no matter what age and skill level. I really recommend this place! It’s currently undergoing renovations though so it’ll be close or a while still


Mark Emmanuel

The staff are friendly, passionate and willing to help out wherever possible. Some very talented skaters call this rink home, but it’s completely beginner friendly.

The prices are very reasonable, albeit the facility has seen better days- with the rubber walking mats working up a layer of water on occasion that make it easy to slip, even off ice. Plus the condition of the ice could use a bit of attention.

It’s the quintessential skating experience and I can gladly say I will be returning soon.


Andrew Birt

Yes this is a local institution. She’s long in the tooth but everyone is friendly. Website was a bit confusing for Xmas period! Should of been open. I made the mistake of being there and the amount of others there also? My daughter loves the penguins to learn on. I hope this will around for many generations to come


Geraldine M

Great local venue for my son to learn ice hockey. Coaches are great and the sessions are very inclusive of all the kids learning to play.  The coaches mix it up a bit.  On Sundays we sometimes come down to the morning skating lessons which are fantastic.    Would love to see the rink receive a much needed update, but the ice is kept in great condition.

Google Reviews for Sidetracked Entertainment Centre in Oakleigh


This is a great place to while away a few hours with the kids! They have extended hours and an arcade, mini golf, laser tag and bowling area. I ordered chicken tacos – the food did not dissappoint. In fact, the food was really delicious and a much higher standard than I expected.


Jaimee Raper

Sidetracked is great. Highly recommend. Great entertainment for all ages, quieter outside of normal children’s hours. It can be a little bit pricey but makes up for it with really good quality laser tag and go karts. Mini bowling is fun, dodgems are decent and the mini golf is okay. I would recommend only doing them as side activities though. They also have a pretty decent snacks menu, which includes coffee and chips and some alcohol, and an arcade area. I really do recommend this place, especially for laser tag/skirmish.


Canal Creștin

What a FANTASTIC venue! Took my nephew for his birthday and we both had a blast! We indulged in 3-4 hours of super fun activities – mini golf, bowling, go-karting, dodgem cars,  laserforce and arcade games. We won prizes and ate the most delicious burger and chips ever! Cafe hot food is also fantastic! Prices are reasonable considering the variety of activities! Definitely recommend for all!


Ashley Raggett

Went with a group of adults (that act like kids) on saturday evening, went with the go kart and laser tag bundle and was great value. All staff were brilliant but want to say an extra thanks to Adam running the laser tag area – all round legend that made it super fun for all! see you again


Kirsty Griffin

Such a fantastic venue, great friendly staff and continually upgrading this fantastic facility.  Loving the new restraunt/ cafe feel and the food is incredible. Reasonably priced and great service we will be back soon for sure!! Ps kids loved all the activities too 😜 👍👍

Shai Israel

A really good place to let your kids spend some time and most of all their energy. Inflatable for toddlers and for older kids alike. Our two and a half years old toddler enjoyed it very much and didn’t stop running up and down. You can have a birthday party or a playdate and the place can provide you with cups and plates (really eco friendly!) And you can bring your own food in. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Payment for entry to the inflatable and in the coffee shop is possible only with cash. Parking is available on the street and in the back of the premises. Highly recommend for kids of all ages!


Ilias Organtzidis

Great fun for kids of all ages. You can host birthdays here and all kids will have something to do. Even when the time runs out and have to pack up your party, you can move to the bar area (where there are more tables & chairs) while the kids wear themselves out on the inflatable things 😉


Nitin Gupta

Great place to spend couple of hours with kids here. We went here for my niece’s bday party. Were allowed to enter 15 minutes before our booking time to decorate and set the theme for the birthday. Tables/chairs were provided and were organised when we got inside.

What we liked about the place:

  1. First and foremost, the staff. Amazing staff, they welcomed us and our queries with smiles.
  2. Lots of inflatables for the kids of all ages (separate section for 5 year olds)
  3. Lots of parking
  4. A good cafe

What we didn’t like about this place:

  1. Cash only


Natasha Chapman

My daughters love Inflatable World Oakleigh. We recently held each of their birthday parties here and the staff were amazing.  All the kids had an amazing time and no one wanted to leave.


Lavinia Gordon

Lots of fun for children,  probably best for 3 to 8 great olds.  Separate section for under fives. Cash only but they do have an ATM. A wide range of inflatables, enough to easily occupy an hour of play, and very safe structures. Friendly staff, easy parking, decent coffee. Bit hot inside on a warm day.
