The sensory rooms at High Rise Lisburn may be booked for individual or group use. Guests are strongly advised to pre-book to avoid disappointment. Please note that parents and carers always remain responsible for the child(ren) or adult(s) they are supporting.
Sensory Room 1 is our larger multi-sensory room. Sensory Room 1 sessions last for 45 minutes and start on the hour eg 10am, 11am etc. If you choose to book an open session, then other guests may also book to use the room at the same time as you. Alternatively, you can book an exclusive session meaning that the room will be unavailable to other guests.
Sensory Room 2 is our smaller multi-sensory room. Sensory Room 2 sessions last for 30 minutes and start on the half hour eg 10.30am, 11.30am etc.
A booking for Sensory Room 2 costs £10 – this is for exclusive use and is suitable for one small group / family (up to 3 people).
We have implemented a very small price increase to some of the activities within High Rise, effective from Monday 2 October 2023, as a result of rising costs. Read more here.
Sensory for babies classes take place in Sensory Room 1 at High Rise, led by our sensory assistant, and making use of the state of the art sensory equipment within the room, such as the bubble tube, projector and lighting. During the classes, babies, along with a parent, explore a new theme each week, such as under the sea, journey into space and over the rainbow.
The classes are suitable for babies from around six weeks old up 9 months (or crawling age) approximately.
Classes take place in 6 week blocks and should be pre-booked. They include some free time to explore the sensory room after the class activities, and a cup of tea or coffee is provided.
