Without playful outlets for their energy, children would spend their leisure time building to-scale city models in sandboxes or betting on ponies. Wear children out without harming their kid cred with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get a two-visit play card to Mega Fun 4 Kids in Scarborough (a $14 value).
Mega Fun 4 Kids gives young frolickers a place to romp imaginatively in a clean and safe indoor playground. Children can open an adventurous day of imagination theatrics captaining the facility's popular pirate ship. Riding toys and a play kitchen allow tiny thrill seekers to create fictional equine and culinary empires, and the mini rollycoaster and ball pit make temporary loss of balance an occasion for a giggle riot. Besocked toddlers and older sprats can exercise imaginations in the costume corner as younger associates multiply brain cells in the infant play area. In contrast to the centre’s quiet nursing room, a music stage provides ample stadium-roar ambience for future harp and kazoo legends. Parents are required to accompany children during their visit, though the facility also offers drop-off babysitting ($5 per child per hour) under the watchful eye of Mega Fun 4 Kids’ carefully screened professional staffers.
Although Mega Fun 4 Kids offers its own discount on Tuesdays, this Groupon still represents the best deal available. Plan accordingly to get the most value.
Mega Fun 4 Kids
Walking the plank is one of the scariest things you can do as a buccaneer, but not at Mega Fun 4 Kids. On its pirate-ship play structure, the plank is a slide kids can zoom down while their fellow playmates pretend to steer the vessel. Elsewhere in the 2,800-square-foot indoor playground, youngsters aged 8 and younger cook meals in the play kitchen, play dress-up in the costume corner, and ride a mini rollercoaster. Along with daily playtime, Mega Fun 4 Kids hosts frequent events, including family nights with movies and pizza and visits from kids’ celebrated characters such as Tigger and the third guy who voiced Piglet. For birthdays, staff party consultants plan soirees that delight kids with private time on the playground and can include extras such as jumping castles or screening of a favourite movie.
