Love love love this place and of course all the staff, kidsplay wouldn't be as great if it didn't have this team of amazing, caring, friendly people
While Groupon says I can use it Monday to Friday the facility is not open Mon or Tuesday.

I said oh ok I don't want to come here I will leave the kids and go shopping or find a quite place to study. No that is not an option I have to pay as well. I said ok great what can I as an adult do here. Response it's really just for kids.
