Play all-day

With a bunch of different areas that cater to kids’ interests and imaginations, kids can jump around from station to station, finding what interests them most. Kids can build and explore in the build-a-brick area, dress up like a pirate or a robot, shop at the market station, or let loose and dance in the dance room. Littles can be independent in a safe, padded area where they can crawl and explore. They’ll love splashing around in the giant ball pit, sliding down the twisty slide, and climbing through the colorful obstacles. For bigger kids, there’s a zip-line and the Virtual Reality multiplayer room. where they can draw and color a fish and watch it swim in a virtual tank with just the press of a button. Plus, Huckleberry Play takes safety seriously, making sure surfaces are regularly sanitized, and has a top-notch surveillance system to watch your child play while you relax. And no need to rush—during the week (and less crowded time to go), your kids can hang out and play all day (on holidays and weekends, play is limited to two-hour time slots).

Take the stress out of party and camp time

Need to plan a birthday party? Whether you choose from the basic or deluxe party packages or the premium option (which gives you use of the entire facility while closed to the public), Huckleberry parties take the stress out of planning one yourself. The packages include a pizza party, a private room, and theme decorations. And if your kids love going to the playspace, consider signing them up for winter and spring break camps when you are home and need something to do, or summer camp from late July to early September for all ages. At the camp, kids will experience more than play, including science experiments, language-arts-based learning, math, global learning, and just plain fun all summer long.

Break time at the Huckleberry Cafe

While kids are having a blast, parents can get a break and even work in the Huckleberry Cafe with snacks and beverages as well as free Wi-Fi. You can hang out in a booth or table and grab a snack or coffee. If your little one gets hungry after all of their playing, check out the menu from nearby Elis’ Eatery of chicken fingers, fries, grilled cheese, and smoothies, or Korean specialties like Korean Fried Chicken, Bulgogi (rib eye), Kimbap (Sushi) and Bibimbap (Rice Bowl).
