The ocean-theme fun rooms are filled with lights, colours and unique play equipment - like this giant water bed to bounce on.
The family-run venue has created a new area for little ones that is packed full of the state-of-the-art sensory and soft play equipment.
The new playroom took 12 months to design, develop and create.
Standout features include the 'dry' water slide, a giant ball room, a balloon room and a water bed... and the dolphin carousel.
The area is exclusively for the under 5s only (and their adults).
Ellis Potter, owner of Riverside Hub, said: "Our new Under 5s area is something new and exciting and a place where plenty of fun and exercise can be had."
Sensory toys are designed to build 'cognitive skills' and light up or respond to play.
Ellis said: "We really enjoyed creating this new addition and hope our young visitors will have just as much fun exploring and enjoying it."
