Fun For Everyone

Firefighter’s Fire Drill
This climate-controlled multi-level playhouse is filled with thousands of foam balls along with buckets, pumpers, vacuums, cannons and targets to help you hone your firefighting skills. A single entry/exit point and plenty of seating around the perimeter of the main floor makes this an excellent area for bigger kids to explore on their own while their parents take a few minutes to sit back and supervise the fun from the sidelines.
