Scientists agree that the only reason adults have children is so they have a socially acceptable reason to visit amusement parks, eat at novelty pizza arcades, and see movies with Shreks in them. Put some fun in the oven with today's kid-friendly Groupon: for $24, you get a six- admission punch card and a six-drink voucher at Boogie Babies in Rochester Hills (up to a $52.50 value).
Boogie Babies’ youth utopia facilitates parent-child play in a clean and engaging atmosphere. Let spotlight-loving youngsters reenact their nightmares on the dress-up stage, or whisk them to the karaoke stage to rap all 53 verses of "American Pie." The treehouse playscape offers immunity from being grounded, and young artists can capture the transient existence of stuffed animals on the giant chalkboard wall or in the arts-and-crafts area. Meanwhile, toddlers still perfecting their strut can find crawl-friendly diversions in the padded Baby Zone. Postplaytime, parents and kids can recharge with beverages ($1–$1.75) and snacks in the lounge area while utilizing the free WiFi to bond over singing-kitten YouTubes.
Boogie Babies keeps the quarters clean with a germ-zapping ultraviolet-light sanitizing system. Play hours are available seven days a week until 8 p.m.
Boogie Babies’ childcare style mixes play with education. The center offers open-play sessions, where kids can enjoy music concerts and puppet shows before manning an Xbox or Wii, taking up residence in an indoor treehouse, and sketching their handprints or blueprints for their future condos onto a chalkboard wall. Classes teach tots second languages from French to sign language, as well as dance, music, and other arts. Special activities include weekly live music events and story times.
Regardless of their kids’ activity, parents can rest assured knowing the facility is spotlessly clean—shoes are strictly forbidden, and every surface is sanitized with UV light and eco-friendly cleaning products.
