The 4,800-square-foot activity arena at The Monkey’s Treehouse, named Best Children's Play Program by Nashville Parent, dazzles pint-sized patrons up to eight years of age with a plethora of interactive and climbable activities. Once inside, tiny jaws drop at the sight of a four-room wooden tree house complete with bridges and slides. Children use their imaginations in a pretend town and play with trains, cars, Calico Critters, doll houses, and baby dolls and can create masterpieces in the art studio. The little ones two and under can enjoy a gated play area designed just for them.
The Treehouse's proprietors, who are parents of young children themselves, work with trained staff to keep the jovial funhouse meticulously clean and safe. There are plenty of diverse activities for everyone, including free Wi-Fi.
Pump It Up specializes in indoor, inflatable arenas for children. During three fun-filled pop-in visits, children can leap around gargantuan air-filled bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an air-filled obstacle course. Pump It Up’s giant indoor air arenas are climate-controlled and maintained according to rigorous guidelines enforced by a well-trained staff and local police. Parents bounce for free during pop-in and family jump time, so childless adults who want to play will need to borrow a neighbor’s kid or win one by collecting soda tops.

Nothing that happens inside one of QuickDraw Nashville's simulators is real, but it's a close approximation. A camouflage design decorates the exterior of these rooms, and inside the long, darkened space ends in a giant screen, where a projector displays different scenarios. Faux pistols and rifles lay on a long table, and visitors use them to aim at video targets or perhaps a simulated zombie attack. These virtual firearms look like their real counterparts, aside from the long chords that feed into the simulator.
The "Plus" in Hot Yoga Plus refers to the fact that the studio offers much more than heated yoga. The instructors here aim to accommodate all types of students, from the beginner with limited flexibility to the advanced athlete trying to perfect her inversions. In that inclusive spirit, every class is open to all levels, empowering students to try any style of yoga at their own pace. Hot Yoga Plus also hosts teacher training with 200-hour certifications through Yoga Alliance, though instructors advise against completing all 200 hours consecutively.
