“Loved this place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

We took our 4 year old daughter while we were visiting Asheville and she had a blast.This place is better than other indoor inflatable play areas we have been to. The dress up play areas were fantastic and the whole place is well planned, safe, and clean. If we lived in this area we would frequent often. Wish we had a play area like this where we live!

“Awesome for young kids.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013

Great time. Place is very clean. This is not like Monkey Joe's or Pump It Up. This place is actually really well put together, clean and the monitors try to make sure everyone is playing safe. We will start coming here all the time. Much better than Fun Depot or Health Adventure.

“Busy busy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

My 3 1/2 year son has a lot of fun here. They have dress up play areas with fire station, doctors office, grocery store and castle etc. They have some items in each area but by the end of the day they are scattered everywhere so get there early if you want to experience all the toys in their proper location.
There are a few blow up slides and jumpy house so kids can get some good exercise. Great for parents b/c they can get a coffee at the coffee shop and sit at a table and watch them in the inflatables. The staff are really attentive to monitoring the inflatables to keep a safe number in at a time and limit the time when it is busy so all the kids get a turn.
I like that they have antibacterial hand gel in many locations since it is for sure a germ pit:) They also have a smaller kid area with a small inflatable and small scale toys. He had fun in there too, and easy to keep an eye on him in this small gated area. Overall my son and I had a fun time and will be back for sure.

This was our first time going we met a friend and we had so much fun. My little one stayed atty Ruhr train tables but he loves Thomas. This place is very clean but be sure you take socks cause everyone has to wear them n no shoes. Very nice will return
