The staff was warm and set up was inviting
Our son hasn’t been in school for a year and we were worried it would be difficult. The staff was warm and set up was inviting. The bouncy houses were the highlight.
— Chinzalee S. Parent
He comes home every day raving about the "giant GIANT bouncy house, I can do FLIPS on it, and you have to climb a 90 degree angled inflatable ladder, it's so fun I could be in that all day plus we get free time on Wednesday morning to just play with my new friends"
— Michelle I. Parent

Skills and Playing
My son has been in pandemic/social distance mode for over a year. The art and skills of playing has been diminished due to lack of frolic movement with other children. MY SON IS WORN OUT AND TIRED FROM PLAYING AND ACTIVELY PARTICIPATING IN GAMES.......EVERY EVENING, MY SON SLEEPS LIKE A CHAMP!!!!!!
