Mattel Play!

Added to planner Add to planner

Mattel Play! brings the worlds of Thomas & Friends, Bob the Builder and Fireman Sam to life. 

The latest attraction to Liverpool's Albert Dock is 13,000 square feet of interactive themed zones based on much loved children's TV characters. Once inside you don’t sit and watch, but instead it is your child’s creativity, physicality and natural curiosity that brings their favourite characters and stories to life. 

Begin your adventure with Merseyrail's favourite, Thomas and Rosie as you explore the Island of Sodor from Knapford Station to Tidmouth Sheds and Farmer McColl’s farm. Grab your tool belt and hard hat and lose yourself in the adventures of Bob and Wendy as they construct projects using a foundation of determination and teamwork. Be transported to the Welsh village of Pontypandy where you can climb aboard Jupiter, explore the Ocean Rescue Centre and put fires out at sea, just like our heroes next door Fireman Sam and Penny!

With free entry to the on-site café and retail area, as well as two themed party areas for your special celebrations and an interactive green screen experience, Mattel Play! is one of the most unique family attractions in Liverpool.

Mattel Play! recommend booking tickets in advance for peak times. For more information on tickets click here.
