  • I brought my kids here for the first time and they had a blast. Even Mickey and Minnie showed up (pretty sure they were part of a party) so the kids had even more fun.  more »

  • I have to say, while on vacation this place was a highlight even for us adults. It was spotless, and our toddler had a blast. We try to only go to things once while on vacation but we went to this pla...  more »

  • Clean and beautiful facility, in theory would be the perfect play place for preschool children. Air conditioned and comfortable during a warm summer day. Maybe it is during morning hours when school is in session. We went today and there were many kids who were way too large to be playing on the equipment (middle school aged kids). They were running over toddlers and running up the slides and abusing the play equipment. There are multiple signs saying "no running" and "no going up slides incorrectly." All were ignored. There are a couple of people working at checkin but nobody supervising the play area. They could easily pay an attendant to supervise this area when open for general play. We were told it was the parent's responsibility to supervise their children, which many weren't. Would not recommend to parents of small children during the summer. Maybe it's a different atmosphere during the school year. Hopefully a small child doesn't get seriously injures due to the dismissive nature of the staff concerning their own rules.
  • I've been bringing my daughter since she was 1 (now 3) and she has loved every second of it. However, the price increase from $8 to $12 when she turned 3 is a lot so we decided to now bring her once in a while. Snack prices are too high as well and I've been yelled at before for bringing my own water. I've suggested memberships (like Hands On) so we can bring her more often but even asking got me a sour face from some of the staff (other staff members and the owner are very approachable though). The place is great for kids and very clean. I understand the initial investment was high and most people don't take care of others' property so maintaining it expensive but making it more affordable would be awesome!
  • We live about 45 minutes away and this is the perfect day trip for our preschoolers. It's clean, safe and, for the most part, a hands-off experience - we don't have to "help" our kids play. They run around, exploring on their own. This is a staple for our family whenever we visit Asheville.
  • My #1 stop to take kids to get their energy out. I love that they have the 1 rate for whole day, and we can leave to eat lunch and come back the same day without paying again! THANKS TO THOSE WHO MANAGED TO MAKE THIS PLACE AND KEEP IT CLEAN FOR KIDS: ) Am and will always tell my friends about this awesome place!
  • Cool place to let the kiddos run around. Easy going atmosphere and easy for parents to relax. Safe equipment and easy to look out for kids while they play!
