Where are we going today?

You know what we love more than indoor fun? Indoor fun in a HUGE playground where the parents can join in too!

Going Bonkers is ALL about giving families a place to really just enjoy that old fashioned playtime in a place that is SO much more than a playground!

here, it's an interactive adventure zone where those imaginations can run wild, and that energy (that we know the kids have a LOT of) can be used up!

Did you know that the tall, soft play center was actually designed by a physical therapist specializing in healthy play? How cool is that! There are FOUR levels of amazing fun where you can bounce, jump, slide, weave, and climb until your heart's content.

It's where you can just well, go bonkers and PLAY!

If you have little ones in the family, they can enjoy the toddler play area that is just for them, so they can enjoy time away from the main play structure with others their own age.

Did we mention Going Bonkers has an arcade too? How cool is that! When you need a break from all that playing, you can just head on over to enjoy one of the 60 arcade games, and try and get those high scores - you will want to because there are redemption prizes to be won!

SO what are you waiting for? It seems everyone else has gone bonkers, so now it's your turn! Parents, get those playing socks ready too, because it's the ultimate play zone in Columbia!

Year round

I'm Hungry!

They have a great restaurant to fill up those rumbling tummies! From burgers, to pizzas, sandwiches and treats, those tummies will be re-fueled in no time!.

Healthy Eating!

They have salads at the restaurant, and bottled water.

Any Top Tips?

If you love going bonkers, check out the season passes (3 months or 6 months) as it's a great saving for multiple visits.

Need a little extra help?

Just give them a call if you have any questions about accessibility of the equipment!.

Can I get one of those?

You can purchase socks on site, because you will need them to play if you forget your own. They also have redemption prizes in the arcade!.

    I'm sure the kids are having a blast, but an employee just threatened me. Obviously there's no smoking, but nothing about vaping. I took one puff and an employee approached me and informed me that if a manager saw me vaping, they would have the police remove me. Really?!? Do you need police to be involved to ask someone not to vape in your establishment?

    I've been going this place for 4-5 years since my kids were very young. Everytime I go, I feel it's quality is going down hill. It used be clean, less crowded and safe. Now it's dirty, very crowded and somewhat dangerous. I really think they need safety and quality control on play area which includes the maze and the arcade. The rule clearly says people have to wear socks but I see kids (sometimes big adults) wearing no socks or wearing shoes. It's very unsanitary and dangerous (stepping someone's hands with basketball shoes.. imagine that..). Also...Read More

    Tentatively checked out place because of the reviews.... so glad we did! $8 for a 3 year old mommy and daddy...... ($1 per adult). Rides were lame but what do u expect.... it's like a restaurant playground on steroids. no tubes (thankfully) but lots of slides and mazes to get to them. Went w my toddler because some spaces are difficult to maneuver, but I fit decently (some pretty tight 2 foot tall sections to "slide through" though). Yes it smells a little off, but what did you expect? Overall one of the better places around - will definitely be...Read More

Now it's dirty, very crowded and somewhat dangerous. I really think they need safety and quality control on play area which includes the maze and the arcade. The rule clearly says people have to wear socks but I see kids (sometimes big adults) wearing no socks or wearing shoes. It's very unsanitary and dangerous (stepping someone's hands with basketball shoes.. imagine that..). Also I often see kids play too rough inside of the maze. When I see bunch of big kids play chase and tag, shouting and pushing small kids around, I feel very unsafe. Don't get me wrong, the place itself is good, the root problem is parents who control them but I see too many unresponsible adults in this place. If parents can't control kids, the store has to step up and bring the quality back but I don't see the effort from the store either. Unless they bring up the control on this place, I won't visit this place again. (PROS) cheap, fun place for kids (CONS) need quality control, need more regulation on kids play area
