With winter just around the corner and the weekend looming you're going to need somewhere to take your kids. Playing outside in the rain and cold is not an option and there is only so long that the kids can stand to be couped up in the house before they get bored and start creating havoc, but what can you do?
One of the best options available is an indoor playground and one of the best around is Tropical Twist.
Tropical Twist is located in O'Connor and has a huge indoor play area that is fun for kids of all ages. There is a general play area, a games area, a triple level play structure and a challenge area for kids 8 years of age and over. While your kids are happily playing you can take full advantage of the café area to relax and grab a coffee or a snack.
Not forgetting the needs of younger children, there is a great toddler's play area which is separate and enclosed from the rest of the playground. This area consists of, among other things, a bouncy castle and a ball pit.
If you're looking for a unique place to hold your child's next birthday party, think about Tropical Twist. Organised parties like this are a good idea, the kids have a ball and there's no mess to clean up afterwards.
Choose from one of the party packs on offer, ranging from a party with light snacks to a fully catered party, each one has slightly different food and the prices vary accordingly. All parties include entry into the playground area where the kids are free to play before and after the party food is served. Tropical Twist is happy to provide a birthday cake or you can bring your own. Each party lasts for two hours and parents are welcome to join in or watch from the café area.
The Tropical Twist menu is quite large and varied and contains the usual chips, wedges, burgers, chicken nuggets and pizza slices that kids love. It also has a variety of sandwiches, toasted sandwiches, hot dogs and hot and cold food platters available. There are plenty of hot and cold drink choices too. You and your kids will have no problem finding something you like for lunch or a snack.
Although staff are on hand in the play area, children do need to be supervised by their parents and must wear socks to enter the play area.
Tropical Twist is open every day, weekdays 10am till 2pm and weekends 10am till 5pm and there is plenty of parking right outside the door. Entry Costs $7.50 for children 1 – 4 years of age and $10.99 for children 5 – 14 years of age.
