When it’s cold outside and the kids are cooped up in the house- it’s enough to drive us moms CRAZY! Luckily, we have several options here in Sacramento to keep them busy, those little bodies moving and (fingers crossed)…wear them out so we might get a few moments of peace in the afternoon!
In October, Roseville introduced us to their newest indoor play facility Crazy Climbers. Located at 10556 Industrial Avenue in Roseville, approximately 35 minutes from downtown Sacramento, this play area has everything to keep the kids “going crazy”.
With two rooms full of fun, my kids and their friends were running around and having a blast. With a bounce house, inflatable “obstacle course”, shooting foam ball pit and a 16 foot high, 3 level play structure… the kids could literally get lost and busy playing for hours. I tried keeping up with my little ones, but all the “climbing through, up and down” and the speedy slides left this mama exhausted!
What sets this fun house apart from other indoor play structures and what was by far “the best part” (according to my 5-year-old) was the self-propelled train. They were able to take train rides and use their own arm strength to pedal around the play structure….how fun is that?!?!?
The facility is clean and well-kept up. Bathrooms were tidy and there was plenty of tables to sit at. Light snacks can be purchased, but luckily they don’t frown upon bringing in your own and with little ones, we all know that snacks are a necessity!
And if you have toddlers, they do have a separate area with soft blocks and climbing structures for them to play and explore in a much quieter atmosphere (basically so they don’t get trampled by all the older kids).
So for the admission price ($8 for children 2-7 years of age, $5 for kids under 2), this would be a great place to take the kids on one of these extremely cold days we have been having.
Crazy Climbers is open 7 days a week. Monday- Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday 10am-7pm and Sunday 11am-6pm. We went right when they opened and found plenty of tables and chairs that were available. However, I did notice that by noon, the place began to get quite busy. If you have kids that are younger, I would suggest getting there in the morning or in the later afternoon to ensure the most pleasant play experience for you and the kids.
