Berry Bish Bash was a specially designed fun house, with thousands of foam balls which could be propelled, raised, thrown, dropped, shot and moved all around the Foam Factory in a “cycle of fun”. They burst from blasters, launched from catapults, rolled up conveyors and worked with many other intriguing hand-operated, mechanical devices.
The attraction was spread across two levels, with numerous climbing frames and slides on the ground while most of the cannons could be found higher up. At the centre could be found the Berry Juicer which guests could feed berries into for it to then erupt once full.
The attraction first opened in 2003 as Ribena Berry Bish Bash due to it being sponsored by Ribena in a deal which also included Berry Bouncers at Chessington World of Adventures Resort and Thorpe Park Resort’s Rumba Rapids.
When the sponsorship deal ended in 2007, the attraction’s name was shortened to just Berry Bish Bash and the Ribena Berry photo opportunity was removed, although it remained in the park’s storage areas for a number of years.
The attraction proved to be popular with guests of all ages although it closed in September 2013 in preparation for the area’s retheme to CBeebies Land. It reopened in 2014 as Justin’s House Pie-O-Matic Factory as a fairly similar attraction to what in had been before.
