Aloha Friday: Grown Up Indoor Playground
Over the weekend, we went to Cousin B’s second birthday party. It was held in an indoor play area. Waiting, the boys all but drooled over the long trampoline, foam pit, zip line, climbing net, balance beams, bounce house, and more. As the boys removed their shoes and socks, they asked if I would go on everything with them. I told them that grown-ups weren’t allowed on anything, that it was only for kids.
Then, the staff member corrected me and let me know I *could* go on almost everything.
As the kids raced to each item, I accompanied them from time to time. NHL and I bounced on the trampoline together. JSL buried me in the foam pit and I chased him through the bounce house. (I did sit out the zip line, though, as that was one of the not-for-adults items.)
In all of the bouncing, foam-climbing fun, I worked up quite a sweat. After the play portion of the party was over, I joked with the staff member that they should open the place up at night for adults.
As I thought about it more, I began to wonder. How many grown ups, like me, hate the idea of a gym with lines of stationary bikes, treadmills, and other "boring" exercise equipment? How many adults would love to feel like a kid again as they bounce along a trampoline, crawl through a foam pit, and climb up a rope bridge?
My Aloha Friday question for today is: Would you go to an indoor playground for grown ups?

Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the linky there if you are participating.
Yes – if it was for a party and closed to the public.

No, I think I’m too much of a germaphobe. My kids are older, but I really didn’t let them go to too many of those type of places.

Yup! An indoor obstacle course would be fantastic! That would be a great workout! You could race your friends and try to beat your time.

I remember going through the maze at the Discovery Zone when my kids were small.

We used to have a place similar to that called Leapin’ Lizards. I think the grown ups had more fun than the kids! I even raced my Dad on the obstacle course. 🙂
