One of the newest lots to open outside of Newark airport, Newark Liberty Parking houses more than 1,500 self-park spaces less than a mile from the terminal. Shuttle buses—also known as land-planes—run to and from the airport every five to seven minutes, 365 days a year. Parking is based on 24-hour intervals, and long-term parking is available for extended trips. Frequent fliers may wish to take advantage of the frequent parkers program.
Every little girl is a princess, and the glitterati at Parteaz work hard to ensure that every girl knows it. Inside the pink-washed play space, girls aged 2–6 indulge in a magical experience that transforms them into faux royalty for the day. Dressed in tutus and fuzzy pink tiaras, little ladies can sip from china tea sets as sunlight filters in through sparkly curtains, illuminating their fresh crystal tattoos. During the spa experience youngsters receive age-appropriate facials and manicures before creating personalized spa products. Guests can also dip fruits and other treats into the chocolate fountain. Parteaz also opens its doors for baby showers, nine varieties of birthday parties, and variety of events and classes.
The attendants at Park2Fly at Newark Airport know that figuring out what to do with your car when heading out of town can be a source of frustration. Most public parking is short-term, tow trucks are always on the prowl for illegally parked cars, and daycares generally only accept cars that have been potty trained. The Park2Fly lot presents a solution to this conundrum of car ownership. Attendants keep watch over their flock of vehicles 24 hours a day while owners fly in and out of Newark Airport. Travelers simply pull into the lot and select an outdoor or indoor space on their own—or let a valet do it for no extra charge—and then wait a few minutes for the airport shuttle to arrive and whisk them off to the airport curb.
The staffers at Brainiac's Childcare don’t just care for youngsters—they give them an academic leg up. Between the hours of 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., they lead children aged 6 weeks to 5 years through fun, supervised activities that impart age-appropriate skills, such as phonics and language comprehension, and also provide important social interaction. Programs include full-day kindergarten and before- and afterschool care, as well as fitness-focused classes in dance and soccer. Supervised evening childcare allows parents to enjoy adults-only activities, such as riding roller coasters with height requirements.
Pump It Up's indoor inflatable arenas launch socked striplings into the air with a plethora of kid-friendly bounce pads. Staffers supervise fun-filled visits, during which adult counterparts leap around with their kids through gargantuan bounce houses, skip down air-filled slides, and slither like snakes covered in bacon grease through an inflated obstacle course. Occasionally, the staffers switch off the lights, arming the roomful of players with glow sticks and bracelets as they navigate the air-cushioned obstaclescape.
The colorful venue also hosts custom birthday parties and private team parties, each themed to please the partygoers in question. These soirees immerse children in a schedule of interactive activities befitting a pirate or a superhero while melting off youthful energy faster than ice cubes thrown into a running DVD player. The birthday boy or girl even gets to blow out the candles on their cake seated in their blow-up throne. Relying on the staffers' vigilant, watchful eyes, guardians can rest assured that their charges will stay safe, and each piece of the inflatable playground is held to the wall by a complex series of anchors installed according to strict safety standards.
