Kids, like Ponce de León, need constant supervision while exploring, or they’ll simply vanish into a jungle in search of eternal youth. Watch your kids wander through a multicolored playground with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a punch card good for five open-play sessions at FunBelievable Play, located in Lakeside (a $40 value). The fun facility is open every day of the week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
FunBelievable's attentive staff, which has undergone rigorous training and full background checks, oversees 6,000 square feet of play space and a three-level labyrinth that hosts a panoply of fun activities. A quintet of open-play admissions grants youngsters ages infant–12 ample time to explore the multicolored play structure that houses enough slides, tubes, and ziplines for a real life game of Chutes and Ladders. The air-conditioned facility also features an area devoted to babies and toddlers with safe soft surfaces and miniaturized activities. All of FunBelievable's equipment is sanitized and examined for safety issues daily. Parents can visit the snack bar for a cup of coffee, or use the free WiFi to check their emails or update their Facebook statuses using only their toes.
At FUNbelievable kids play indoor with playground equipment imported from the United Kingdom. Meeting all playground safety regulations, the 6,000-square-foot facility helps children use their imaginations while developing their physical and mental capabilities, and climbing structures and interactive games encourage social skills that come in handy when imaginary friends go off to college. A colorful three-level play structure hosts fun amenities such as tube slides, climbing walls, tiki-figure punching bags, and a ball shower, whereas the sports arena gives future athletes the chance to kick goals and shoot baskets. Wobbly walkers and toddlers enjoy more age-appropriate play in their own space, which scales down big-kid fun into an area littered with soft toys, a mini ball pit, and mini slides.
Parents can sip coffee in a lounge area and rest easy knowing their children are playing on equipment that's sanitized and inspected daily. The staffers are fully trained and have passed background checks, and many of them also are certified in first aid and CPR and boast an encyclopedic knowledge of cartoons.
In 2012 and 2013, Red Tricycle named FUNbelievable "Best Indoor Playground in Southern California," and in 2015 and 2016, readers of San Diego Family Magazine voted them "Best Kids Party Venue."
