Where are we going today?

You've heard the saying "It's a jungle out there", but what about "a jungle IN there"?

Kids can immerse themselves in the magic of the jungle at Charlie Safari's indoor play center! It's indoors, so you don't have to worry about the weather - and we LOVE that! Rain - let's play! Snow - let's play! Sun - let's play even harder!

Charlie Safari's knows kids love to play, which is why with the admission, you get all day play! In fact, there is 22,000 sq feet of indoor play space, so it's just as well. There is a LOT of playing to do!

There are so many activities that the kids can enjoy. There are super fun indoor play structures, where kids can play, climb, crawl, hide, spin, and let their imaginations run wild!

For those more active kids who love a challenge, the two story laser tag arena will take care of that! Laser tag is a great way for kids to really develop skills, such as coordination, and they also have to work as a team. They have to communicate with each other, and then they can really feel like the have achieved something when they complete the mission!

There's still more! For those kids with extra energy, there are inflatables to bounce, slide, and jump all over! Bounce bounce bounce!

Then in between ALL of that fun, kids can head to the arcade where they can try and get their name on those high scores.

Did we mention there were birthday party packages too? Of course there are!

Charlie's Safari is waiting for the kids to join the jungle adventure. It's a whole other world...in Washington!

    This is a wonderful space, clean and safe with a respectful staff but it's better if you avoided during "peek hours" during the weekends because it gets very crowded and if you have kids younger than 3 you'll be saving yourself a couple of bad experiences. My daughter loves it here so the opinions I might have about other people's parenting are beside the point.

    I really think this place has changed for the worse. The only reason I give it two stars and not one is for my past experiences and the hope they will pull it together. Called to get pricing and reserve a party for my son. Was told that my 16 month old daughter would count as a party guest. First I would not let her near that heard of wild animals and second what makes you think your space is so desirable that I would simply hand you money for the privilege of being there? What's next charging for the air your breathing? Nickel and dime someone...Read More

    The staff is always so nice and pleasant. I always bring my two year old here. The only thing that drives me crazy is that the giant playplace is always dark, so you can't see your kids inside until they go into a certain part of the playplace. My son is an escape artist so he can quickly go to a different part of the building from the playplace.

    The bounce houses are fantastic. They do have an area for the little kids, but the doors do not lock anymore and the big kids always come inside, so you have to stand watch over your little ones. The...Read More

    Here's my story. First we book a birthday party in October for this coming weekend. $50 deposit + another $150 on the day of the party. We're told to show up about 11:45 for the party at noon and kids can play after the party. This has been the way it's always been for the 3-4 parties we've been to there and the other 2 we've booked in the past.

    Well, we get a call sometime in Nov. saying they have new rules. Due to kids having a party and then playing for many hours after the party (which for $200 I don't think is unreasonable at all) they...Read More

The arcade is a lot of fun, and the burgers at Charlie's are great. The fries not so much. Haha. I love that they sell milk there.

We had no problems with people taking our stuff from the bins, and we were there for quite a few hours. Morning time is probably the best time to go, and after that it gets busy and crazy. All in all, it's a great place to let the kids burn off A LOT of energy.

This has been the way it's always been for the 3-4 parties we've been to there and the other 2 we've booked in the past.

Well, we get a call sometime in Nov. saying they have new rules. Due to kids having a party and then playing for many hours after the party (which for $200 I don't think is unreasonable at all) they have changed their rules. Now, we are asked to show up at 11am and the kids can play for an hour, party at noon and we're expected to leave after the party. I should have pulled the plug right then but, the wife talked me out of it since the boy really wants his party there.

Get a call today (day before the party) saying someone booked the entire place tomorrow from 10-noon and we were not to show up until noon for the party at noon. I asked about when the kids were going to play and they said they have multiple parties booked after ours and they needed the room and still expected us to leave when the party was done. Well, this was too much. Pulled the plug. Not paying $200 for a party and no play. They called back and offered to let the kids play the rest of the day. I said "No thanks. Chuck E. Cheese can have the money I was going to pay you."
