Kids will be kings and queens of the kingdom in a proposed new indoor children's play area in Wollongong CBD.
Applicant Kellie Tikkeros plans to create an interactive role-play experience with themed rooms and a coffee shop where parents can retreat on Crown Street.
The business, accessed via Crown Lane, would be known as "Kids Kingdom Wollongong".
Ms Tikkeros has submitted a development application to Wollongong City Council and wants to transform the second-storey space which was formerly a yoga studio.
"The nature of the business is to provide a nice retreat for parents to come and socialise while the kids play during their shopping outings as well as a great space to hold functions within the CBD," the development application said.
"There isn't another business of this type in the CBD."
There will not be any climbing or inflatable jumping equipment.
The café will serve coffee, gourmet sandwiches and cakes.
The proposal suggests the cafe will be used for private functions such as children's birthday parties, baby showers, high teas and themed functions.
Construction of a timber deck with a roof is proposed to replace the dilapidated three-car space outside the building in Crown Lane.
"These external upgrades are proposed to improve the visual quality of the Crown Lane entrance while providing a nice open space area to consume coffee and food," the development application said.
"The proposal will improve the aesthetics of the streetscape by removing an old dilapidated car park which also becomes a dark black spot at night and acts as an area for antisocial behaviour."
The business owner wants to operate from 6am to 9pm seven days a week.
"It is proposed to hold private functions on site which will run up to 12 midnight on varying days," the application said.
"An application for an on premises liquor licence will be made to allow consumption of alcohol for functions.
"Liquor will not be sold as part of the day to day running of the indoor play centre."
The business will require two full time employees and three casual employees.
The building is located between Humber and Breakout Bar, and is close to Kneading Ruby.
The application says the business is appropriate for the location and will "compliment the already thriving businesses up the lane and create a safer environment for the future tenants and employees who will occupy the upcoming units and offices under construction at the top of the lane".
The new business will take over from Two and You Collective yoga studio and can be accessed via Crown Lane.
The front facade on Crown Street is of heritage significance but would not be affected by the proposal.
There will not be any parking available however the building is close to public transport.
The application is on public exhibition until April 24.
