We stopped at the office to make arrangements and we were told that it is no longer a business. They said the owners moved north and would not give us any information. We were there last week 9th of January 2014.

I had a great time at People at Play and would definitely recommend this attraction. I had a lot of fun. Everything was done with safety and professionalism. Wonderful couple who run People at Play. I will be back my next time in Bradenton.
