Physicists have determined that the best way to subdue wall-bouncing photons is to let them loose until they need a nap. Apply the latest scientific findings to your kid’s playtime with today’s deal. For $30, you get a 10-visit frequent player pass to Planet Kid in the Wings Center.
Planet Kid is Boise’s bounce-friendly headquarters for kids’ recreation and fitness, and is home to one of the largest soft indoor playgrounds in Idaho. Offering healthy recreational alternatives to the basketball-shaped video game consoles and vegetable-shaped junk food so heavily marketed to children, Planet Kid provides excitable tykes and active 12-and-unders with several blood-pumping playable obstacles. Gaze upwards at the towering climbing tube known as the astral ascent, or crane your neck further for a glimpse of moon mountain, a giant wadeable ball pit. A collection of space-themed slides like the comet, the Milky Way, and the star shoot test fundamental laws of gravity without resorting to pelting famous physicists in the face with apples. Finally, kids looking to conquer their fear of heights before moving onto their fear of inherently evil clowns will enjoy the ‘reach the peak’ two-sided mountain rope climb.
Unlike its TV and recliner-heavy competitor, Planet Middle Aged Man, Planet Kid was designed to promote lasting physical well-being, as well as provide a space for like-minded kids to socialize through highly evolved recreation. Parents can cheer their kids on from the sidelines or kick back and enjoy the facility’s free WiFi. Socks are required, so if your child forgets to bring them or loses them in one of the many black holes in the ballpit, Planet Kid will sell you a pair for $2.
Though Planet Kid hasn't been reviewed much, Wings Center, the facility in which Planet Kid is located, boasts more than 360 Facebook fans.
