We got invited to check out open play at Scooter's Jungle last week. I had no idea what the place was but a bunch of Moms in my tribe were raving about it so we decided to check it out. Scooter's Jungle is an indoor play arena and has a huge, custom inflatable slide, jumpers and structures. One of the inflatable structures had a zip-line, another had a basketball hoop. There were "free" table games like air hockey and ping pong. Open play is a 2 hour event and it's only $8 per kid and includes one adult. Check the Scooter's Jungle website for location specific calendars on open play.
Duke went down the slide about 40 times. I'm not even exaggerating. He loved the slide the most, I think all the kids did, even some of the Moms. I was surprised when he tried the zip-line because he plays like he's scared but really he's not. I was so excited for him, he really liked it too. Chris and I played air hockey a couple times and we took turns playing with Duke. Our little one, Omar, enjoyed watching all the kids run around while he sat on my lap. They had good music on and cold air flowing. I'm not sure what the rules are but most of the parents brought in their own drinks and snacks which I love because I always have a water bottle on me.
Scooter's Jungle would be great for a Birthday Party and I'm considering getting together some Moms and kids together for a play date during open play.
It was our first time going and we had a blast. Duke didn't want to leave. We didn't have to drag him out though because we promised we would be back!
Duke says Scooter's Jungle is better than other kids places that shall not be named. His words!
