About Great Play
The myriad classes, activities, and programs at Great Play operate with one focus in mind: to spark kids’ passion for physical activity. At Great Play’s core lies an interactive arena, which Arizona Foothills magazine awarded Best Kid's Entertainment Indoors and Best Birthday Party Spot for Kids, designed to facilitate physical fun. Projector screens spotlight the arena's walls while sensors and a directional sound system inject interactivity into the slew of noncompetitive games and activities that help boost kids' motor and athletic skills. Monitoring the arena's playing field and adhering to the SCORE training method is an upbeat staff that teaches youngsters how to swing a baseball bat, bribe slam-dunk-competition judges, and trap a soccer ball by breaking each skill into a series of positively reinforced smaller steps. The staff also tailors birthday parties to birthday kids’ likings and hosts Parents Night Out events that allow caregivers to drop off their children and hit the town while kids play in the gym, feast on pizza, and catch a G-rated flick on a 100-square-foot screen.
