Lookout Ridge Indoor Playground entertains kids 12 years and under with a sprawling, organic playground that complements the design of the Central Park building in which it is housed. Like a powerful shrink ray, the indoor jungle gym brings the wonders of nature down to a child's size, with life-like nature sounds reverberating through caves, fallen trees, and tube mazes. Pintsize adventurers climb to the top of a treehouse and scale cliffs that resemble the St. Croix valley, or zoom down a 30-foot slide and navigate a foam forest. Parents watch their young ones and groups of birthday party revelers from comfortable benches and chairs in the lobby.
