Monkey Bizness Fun!

Wow! My sisters are visiting for a couple days and we decided to go to the Great Mall of the Great Plains tonight in Olathe just north of Gardner, Kansas. We planned on letting our kids play in the food court play area for a while. Well that got boring after 20 minutes and my wife and sisters wanted to shop more, so we decided to go to the Monkey Bizness, we hesitated a little because it cost $7.50 for each child for unlimited tome for the day. But we paid and went in. Wife and sisters took off shopping leaving me with my 3 children and my sisters 2 children. All together 3,3,4,5,7 ages.

Well, they took off and started playing, soon though the smaller kids were having troubles climbing on the blow up slides and obstacle courses. so I kick my shoes off and started helping them. Turns out all the equipment is very very sturdy, never once did I have an issue and I am #200. There were probably 20 kids running around the room we were in and we never had an issues with running over the other kids, just plenty of room. A huge 15' slide was probably the funnest of all. All the tumbles that everyone took and no one got more than a short cry when my son did a face plant. It just scared him a little but he was off and going again in seconds.

The place has 3 very large rooms that are basically identical. Only 1 way out so it is pretty easy to keep track of a kid trying to escape. Would be nice to be able to have a gate across but I know that has its own issues.

All in all I would highly recommed the place. It is well worth the $7.50. The parties are damned expensive though. We will be going back soon.
