You’ll find two vast halls brimming with fun, educational, interactive play opportunities including a kid-sized Play Town and Active Play (bounce house, ball pit, swings, slides, climbing, and ride on toys). When the weather behaves, head to the outdoor Shipyard Playground.

Jump n’ Slide
With five inflatables ranging from a huge obstacle course with a steep slide to a Dragon Inflatable for the younger ones, every kid will enjoy the Jump n’ Slide bouncy houses. You can also head to the arcade that’s decorated like a castle or build your own stuffed animal. They offer laser maze challenges, date night drop offs and arts and crafts events throughout the year.
