Cause some commotion at the bottom of the Ocean!

Looking for a rainy day activity in Edinburgh? Got little ones to occupy while the big ones are at school? Then look no further than our Ocean Commotion soft play!

The Ocean Commotion Play Area is located in our Natural Selection gift shop. It’s truly a feast for the imagination, as your junior explorers grab their snorkels & flippers and dive down to the depths of the ocean.   Be mesmerized by our sea-inspired sensory tubes. Climb aboard our yellow submarine and trawl the seabed looking for treasure. Scale the rocky wall of our cliffs or race against the clock to catch as many sea creatures as you can! And of course, no soft play area is complete without a ball pool, and ours is always a big hit with our little visitors.


With a soundtrack of whales, dolphins and waves, Ocean Commotion offers a sensory and interactive experience for your little ones. Some tots find it so relaxing that their parents have even picked up the CD at our gift shop to listen to at home!

If all that playing has worked up an appetite, then you can visit our Food Chain cafe to re-fuel. We’ve got lots of healthy snacks, tasty meals and drinks, as well as delicious coffee to perk up tired parents!  

Ocean Commotion is open daily from 10am-5pm and is suitable for children under the age of 10. We hold birthday parties here at Dynamic Earth, which allow exclusive access to the Soft Play area - this means that we do close at certain times on Saturdays and Sundays, so it’s a good idea to ring ahead just to check availability. And if you would like to find out more about holding a birthday party at Dynamic Earth, check out our party page. We’ve got lots of exciting packages available for kids of all ages.


Entry to the soft play is free with a Dynamic Earth ticket, but you can also visit without a ticket to the attraction for just £2 per child. You can stay as long as you like, however, we do ask that children have adult supervision at all times.

We look forward to welcoming you soon for your voyage to the bottom of the sea!
