Decorated around themes such as trains and characters like Dora the Explorer, the inflatable obstacle courses and mazes at Kids! Kids! accommodate children with ample room for bouncing, crawling, climbing, and exploring. More exciting discoveries are made during birthday parties, which celebrate special occasions with create-your-own sundaes, carnival-style games, and visits from the birthday child's favorite character. Even on unbirthdays, the Kids! Kids! staff finds any excuse to treat youngsters. Events such as pizza nights and parents' night out, for instance, offer evenings full of tasty slices, games, and time on the inflatables, while 24-hour childcare keeps kids engaged with age-appropriate activities.
