This gigantic playground area includes:

  • Two inflatable bouncy castles
  • An inflatable obstacle course
  • A 22’ inflatable giant slide
  • Ride-on cars and toys

  • Musical instruments
  • A toddler area with padded flooring, carpet games, and lots of toys!

This fun indoor playground is a great place to take your kids during the rainy days or when it is too hot outside to get a little break indoors.  Our son had a fabulous time bouncing on the inflatable castles, going up and down the fun slides and riding the plasma cars.   Great place for toddlers to let out all of their extra energy. He came home to take a long nap after lunch!

    There used to be early admission for toddlers only one day a week. If it is still available, it is well worth the effort.
