INDOOR PLAYGROUND at Life Community Church The Come Play attraction at Life Community Church has four dedicated indoor play spaces for bounce houses, basketball, toys and a giant play structure. It’s designed to entertain babies to middle schoolers. I got lost on the way there (typical), but then followed a minivan thinking surely this more put together person was also on the hunt for some indoor play sanity. Copying other parents: first chapter of the official parenthood survival guide, am I right? #noshame. That led us to the parking lot behind the church and then through a nondescript white door, marked space B. Very underground club scene. Once we were in, we paid the nice ladies at the sign-in table, stashed our shoes in a bin and filled out insurance paperwork. Two In Tow & On The Go: A FAMILY ADVENTURE COLUMN By Tonya Strickland Then, we found two bounce houses: one for ages 3 and younger and another for big kids. This room also has foosball and Skee-Ball. A nice row of chairs for parents line the wall. I can’t speak to the comfort level of those chairs, however, because who can actually sit with a 1 and 3-year-old? From there, we ventured into a large gym-type area where kids play with basketballs and foam footballs. I was BFFs with that room because it was an open, boxy space where I could easily see the kiddos from any angle. After that, we hit up the toy room. Any toy you’d ever want is in this room. Noisy toys, light-up toys, wooden toys, dolls. You might even get time to sit down in here. Snack tables are in this room. And so is the restroom, which thoughtfully includes a step stool at the sink and a stocked changing table. Off the toy room is the giant play structure. Part carnival fun house, part McDonalds play place: this thing is magical. Picture a tall series of climbing platforms, nets and tube tunnels with a slide. The tubes circle above the toy room then twist back around to an observation tower. One bummer: I lost sight of my daughter while she was navigating the tunnels, which made me uneasy. So there’s a degree of trust you need to have. If you feel like your kiddo is too young to be alone up there, I would skip it. Definitely not for my 1 year old, for example. Still, Come Play is a lot of fun and we’ll be back!
