Planet Kid is Boise’s bounce-friendly headquarters for kids’ recreation and fitness, and is home to one of the largest soft indoor playgrounds in Idaho. Offering healthy recreational alternatives to the basketball-shaped video game consoles and vegetable-shaped junk food so heavily marketed to children, Planet Kid provides excitable tykes and active 12-and-unders with several blood-pumping playable obstacles. Gaze upwards at the towering climbing tube known as the astral ascent, or crane your neck further for a glimpse of moon mountain, a giant wadeable ball pit. A collection of space-themed slides like the comet, the Milky Way, and the star shoot test fundamental laws of gravity without resorting to pelting famous physicists in the face with apples. Finally, kids looking to conquer their fear of heights before moving onto their fear of inherently evil clowns will enjoy the ‘reach the peak’ two-sided mountain rope climb.
Muse Bistro and Wine Bar dazzles diners and sates stomachs with a rotating menu of artfully designed and presented entrees built from seasonal ingredients and market-fresh fish. Lasso stampeding appetites with starters such as calamari fritti dredged in crispy panko crumbs and sidled up next to a lemon-basil aioli. Though entrees change weekly, like a fickle gorilla's opinions on foreign affairs, offerings include dishes such as top sirloin garbed in a sherried mushroom ragout and joined by a sidecar of vegetables and whipped potatoes. Gastronomic gurus tickle market-fresh fish en papillote with basting brushes coated in sun-dried-tomato-basil butter before nestling the piscatorial provender atop a bed of flavor-enhancing aromatics.
At Shankz Glo-Par-Tee, larger-than-life dinosaurs, sea creatures, and volcanoes glow under black lights as guests play through 18 holes of miniature golf in the 6,000-square-foot facility.

In addition to mini golf, Shankz Glo-Par-Tee features a glowing arcade and themed party rooms where patrons can host birthday parties or private events.
