Play In A Castle at Kid Ventures
No princess (or prince) is complete without their own castle. It’s only fitting that a visit to Kid Ventures, San Diego’s premiere indoor play house, should be put in the diary with a wiggle of a magic wand. Kid Ventures has a whole village of settings for kids to play in ranging from a market, nursery, fire station, art studio and of course – a castle! Inside there are two levels to explore complete with turrets, rounded doorways and mini windows. And there’s no need to rescue your damsel as there are two slides ready for a graceful exit from the castle. Kings and queens (or should we say moms and dads of said royalty) will love the parents cafe which has great coffee and organic snacks plus free WiFi. Kids can stay as long as they like and even take part at the daily scheduled activities lead by Kid Venture team leaders.
