Everything we can expect at a massive new Llanelli leisure attraction as work starts on Pinopolis


Llanelli will soon have a huge new development near the town’s beach front. Work is underway on a 17,000 square foot area with both indoor and outdoor soft play facilities, a bowling alley, sports court, indoor and outdoor go-karting, a sensory room and a splash park.

The people behind the project have announced that they have the keys and work has started on their exciting new venture. They are relocating The Play King, a children’s safe play centre which has been operating in Dafen since 2011, to the old CEM Days Car show room in Sandy Road, with the new project called ‘Pinopolis’.

The Play King at Dafen industrial estate has become a popular location for children’s birthday parties and has even hosted events with big name reality stars since it opened in 2011. The soft play site closed in March, 2020, when the UK lockdown was announced and has since been planning the new move.

Their plans have been met with enthusiasm by the local community in Llanelli who said the new venture would encourage visitors to come to the area and create more jobs. You can read more stories about Llanelli here.

But there have been some concerns about the location. Drivers have previously branded the route from Llanelli to Burry Port a ‘nightmare’ and said that during prime time traffic the six-mile stretch could take up to an hour. They worry that new developments will add to the problems.

Lee Waters, MS for Llanelli, said on social media: “It’s great to have more facilities for young people in this part of Llanelli and this is to be welcomed. But it only makes the need to resolve the Sandy Road traffic issues even more imperative.”

Others in the community have argued that the new Play King development’s peak times will not be the same as usual working hours and therefore shouldn’t contribute to traffic in the area.

Pinopolis was announced in June, 2020, but Covid has caused some delays to the project. Owner, Georgia Edwards said: “I am really excited to see the vision of Pinopolis coming to a reality. It’s been over two years in the making, the planning process was incredibly hard, also the pandemic brought everything to a halt and slowed things down considerably. The project is now finally underway with even bigger and better attractions added.”

The ambitious project includes:

-Six full size state-of-the-art, projection-mapped bowling lanes

-A themed indoor soft play attraction with a range of multi-story play equipment!

-Indoor and outdoor Go-Karting!

-A huge fun-filled splash park!

-Outdoor play frames

-A themed diner!

-A licensed American pool bar for the adults to enjoy

-Costa Coffee Cafè

– Pret self-service coffee

-Simulator football room

-Simulator golf room

-Virtual reality Escape room

-A massive indoor sensory room

-Two dedicated party rooms with new projection mapping technology

-Hand car valet service so you can have your car cleaned, inside and out, while you enjoy the use of the facilities

-Over 200 car parking spaces

It has not yet been announced when the project will be opening, and the owners say they will be releasing an opening date when they know for certain.
