Inflatable castles provide excellent alternatives to their brick-and-mortar counterparts, especially when maintaining an air of authority during overseas travel or keeping the fun going during unexpected playground floods. Climb aboard a buoyant fortress of bouncy fun with today's Groupon: for $8, you get two admission passes to Play Town in El Cajon (up to a $16 value). Children younger than 9 months old are admitted for free.
Play Town cultivates a safe ecosystem of fun and excitement for kid creatures ages 6 and younger, and provides adults with spaces where they can relax. The extensive play area houses a vast array of kid-friendly frivolity, including a 15-foot-by-15-foot bounce house that provides a cat-free alternative to jumping on the living-room couch. A climbing structure lets aspiring plastic mountain climbers practice for the big day, and age-appropriate toys engage active hands and minds. A tube and slide structure, push toys, kids' size rolly coaster, and comfortable seating ensures that everyone can enjoy themselves. Infants can safely congregate and plot uprisings in a separate padded zone. Meanwhile, adults relax in another area, enjoying provisions purchased at the snack bar or brought from home and surfing the facility’s free WiFi while their miniature doppelgangers frolic. Like the Senate floor, Play Town is a strictly shoe-free zone, so both parents and kids should be equipped with a pair of presentable socks free of profane graffiti and bank-account numbers.
This little girl looks like a butterfly landed on her face, and this is only part of the reason why she's smiling so brightly. A face-painting brigade is visiting Play Town, decorating visages with intricate designs before sending kids down the tube slide.
Play Town is no ordinary indoor playground.
Sure, sock-footed kids age six and under can tight rope across a balance beam, scamper up a ramp to a network of tube slides, or play real-estate agent in a cottage playhouse but Play Town also enhances their playtime with a calendar of events that includes visits from face painters, cartoon characters, and princesses. Kids can also take movement classes or spend a few hours making crafts, while infants and toddlers play with soft blocks and parents take advantage of free wireless internet access.
