What is there to do?

Oooh lets play on the speed slide! No wait....the spiral slide!  No wait....the cargo bridge!  Oh, we can't decide!

The Play Box is a fun, interactive and colorful play experience for kids up to 12 years old.

There are soft and cushy punching bags for those future Mohammad Ali's out there, a tricky maze (see if you can find your way out!), a craaaaazzzzzy ball jam, a fun slippery spiral slide, a fast speed slide, and can you guess what the moon walk is?  

For those toddlers who need a break from the big kids, there is a dedicated area just for them, filled with brightly colored rockers and fun soft toys to use all that energy on!

Don't worry parents - you can sit back and enjoy a delicious coffee and free wifi while you watch your kids have a great time!

The Play Box ensures a safe, fun environment for your kids to play in, and devlop their creativity, imagination, and keep them active.  It's also a great way to develop their coordination and balance skills. 

If they really love it so much and think their friends will too, then holding their birthday party there is an option.

Adults: Free entry

Children: $5.35 (ages 1 -3 ) / $6.70 (ages 4 - 12)


Need a little extra help?

Any top tips?

Don’t forget to bring your socks! Also, every adult is completely welcome to go on the play structures with their children so don't forget your socks too!

I’m Hungry!
