Where to begin.... it was so filthy, the infant/toddler area especially, with stuff all over the floor I didn't want my 8mon old to crawl on it. The mat in that area was 1/3 duct tape that was all peeled up and caked with dirt. The slide in the toddler area had no way for a toddler to climb up... More

Liked the fact you can sit and relax while the kids spend a lot of time burning off the excess energy! Little pricey when it comes to the coupon games and when you turn them in there is such a little reward...but that is the cost of kids entertainment!! There is plenty to do without the coins but of course... More

This was our first time visiting In Play and we loved it, our 5 yr. old didn't want to leave, he was begging to go back in even when we were in the parking lot headed back to the hotel. The midway games were awesome, that's where I was most of the time, between those and playing/climbing with my son... More

This place is filthy. The staff are not friendly. Equipment is rundown, tearing and the safety of concerns me. Last time I was there with my kids, I saw exposed electrical outlets. My daughter was able to crawl behind the games and got her foot caught in a whole in one of the tunnels approx. 20ft off the ground. Will... More

Bought a pass so the kids got tokens and lunch and we actually spent almost four hours there. Well worth it, the kids had a great time. A couple games didn't work but the staff told me they were being removed. Otherwise a great improvement from years past and super friendly workers!

Lots of climbing,balls,and games. Tuckers the little ones right out. Great for a very rainy day, or birthdays. A bit boring for adults but little kids love it

Hi Kathryn, Thanks for taking the time to post your review. Yes, bringing the kids in to burn off some energy is definitely a plus! We recently added a couple of couches by the ball court and we are thinking to put in a few tv's with CP24 running on them or something like that. We also offer free wi-fi,... More

I was at in play today, after vowing to never go there again. BUT my kids won free passes and were asking to go. It was clean......they staff was super friendly and it wasn't understaffed. They had carrot sticks and sugary fruit cups but not much in the way of healthy snacks. I hope this staff sticks around because they... More

I attended my niece's birthday party at this location in September. The location was not well-maintained. Several of the games were broken, many were dirty or malfunctioning (eg. couldn't put coins in a slot on the drop coin game). However, the kids had a blast! They loved the indoor play center with the balls and tunnels and climbing. They loved... More

Hello CeeGee Thanks for taking the time to give us your suggestions. We have removed all non-working games and are expecting some new and exciting games very soon. Sometimes games get jammed by children putting tickets in where the coins go or sometimes even coins where the tickets go. Our staff are always happy to look at a game for... More
