So, we went to check out the new indoor playground in the Grogan's Mill Shopping Center today. We had a blast. My little one kept smiling. I know we will be back.
To help celebrate their new location, Wonder Wild was kind enough to share 6 passes for free admission with my readers.
They can be used any time between now and 9/1/2011.

Review of WonderWild From http://www.gowonderwild.com/
First, the positives:
It is brand new so it feels nice and clean. All the equipment is clean.
There is something for all ages.
There is one giant inflatable obstacle course with a slide. 2 people can race to go through it.
They have a multi-level play structure connected to slides. I like how their are bridges and varied ways to go.
They have lots of soft things to climb on.
There is an area with a pretend kitchen, wooden puzzles, ball pit, and manipulatives to play with.
This is a great sensory stimulating environment.
I like how it isn't connected to a restaurant
I like the location. It is super close to me.
The staff was friendly, and we had complete freedom to do what we wanted in the play area.
Nursing Chair and Changing Station in Women's bathroom.
Music: I liked the music it was fun and energetic.
Things we have seen before.
You can climb the stairs to go up the climbing structure or you can go up a couple of multi-level towers similar to what we see at the Chick Fil A on Lake Woodlands. (These are definitely cleaner!)
Soft Mats that turn into an obstacle course. Some of them were new to me, but most of them I had seen before at The Woodlands Rec Center for the Preschool meet and greet. (Cost: $1 only once a week, though).
Ball Pit. Actually, the last ball pit I saw was at My Gym, but now they are closed.
Giant inflatable (a different one, but down the street is Pump It Up and I am still really impressed with Bouncin' Bears when it comes to a place to go for inflatables.
Melissa and Doug Puzzles. Love them!
Play Kitchen. Reminds me of when we go to Lakeshore Learning to do crafts.
3 lane slide. Reminds me of the slides at carnivals, just safer.
Things I haven't seen before.
Some of their soft climbing things like the mat that looks like swiss cheese and the ride ons.
Some of their bridges.
The two sit and spins attached to poles.
Some of the obstacles up in the play structure.
Shoe cubbies not obvious until pointed out.
Men's bathroom hiding a bit.
Standard get wet water fountain.
Most of the floor has new carpet, but I wish it was padded or spongy in case someone falls on it.
Normal Price Tag for Drop in play is $10/kid unless you get a membership.
The space is a good size, but I hear that he Heights location is much bigger.
They could sell snacky food for extra profit.
They could also sell sensory merchandise similar to the play things there.
We were there from 4-5 today, 7/28/2011, and it wasn't too busy. I didn't know what to expect after experiencing the week after The Woodlands Children's museum opened. So, try it out and leave a comment with your opinion!
