pirate ship at Kid Ventures in San Diego

San Diego parents have it made. Not only do they have a multitude of outdoor theme parks to choose from –SeaWorld, San Diego Zoo, Legoland— but when the weather is off, or they need a little “me time” they can head over to Kid Ventures, a totally manageable playspace for kids with various play stations including a firehouse, pirate ship, castle and art center, that gives mom and dad some free time to surf the ‘net (free wifi), grab a coffee or watch tv. Experienced playspace guru Debbie Fricker founded Kid Ventures in April of this year, realizing her dream of creating a “boutique-style indoor wonderland for children.”

And San Diego parents have responded enthusiastically, thrilled with the affordable day rates ($12) and birthday party packages ($295 for 15 kids).
