The Play Station's interactive playground enthralls future adults with three levels of entwined slides, tunnels, and obstacles hosted within a more than 12,000-square-foot facility. Tots can climb, crawl, bounce, and slide their way through the vibrantly colored plastic jungle, which challenges imaginations and budding physicists to collect empirical data that can disprove Newton's theories. A network of tubes and bridges connects the multilevel maze and allows explorers to navigate fantastical worlds, such as lava-filled ball pits or submarine burrows. While their genetic replicas laugh and play, adults can watch on from The Play Station's comfortable sitting area, snapping photos of their children or surfing the web with free WiFi to stock up on photos of animals dressed as children.
The Play Station
It may sound clichéd, but ask the staff members at The Play Station about their most memorable experience, and they'll probably say a new one happens every day. Specifically, it's the moment when a child walks in, sees the three-level play center, and lets out a gasp of excitement. The 12,000-square-foot facility's tube slides, ball pits, and other recreational equipment blossomed from the owners' relatively simple idea: create a place where our kids can be active whenever it's yucky outside. Today, kids 12 and younger climb, crawl, and slide through the play center or hit the game room to win tickets redeemable for prizes such as toys and an all-inclusive weekend in Moon Vegas.
While kids expend their energy, parents can relax nearby and socialize, watch television, or enjoy a menu of snacks, such as mozzarella sticks, grilled cheese sandwiches, and nachos. The Play Station's crew includes a team that organizes children's parties and books the facility for field trips, fundraisers, and private rentals.
