Kid
Zone

Happy kids, happy parents!

Our Kid Zone is the perfect place for children ages 6 weeks – 11 years. With a large indoor play structure and outdoor play structure (weather permitting), it might be tough to get your kids to leave! A toddler friendly section and infant friendly area also are in the Kid Zone so that kids of all ages have plenty of toys, crafts and staff to keep them busy!
