SAFARI RUN Plano TX
We are always looking for indoor play spaces that are clean, safe and fun. Our favorite one so far is Safari Run in Plano, it’s about a 20 min drive from downtown Dallas. This indoor jungle gym is brand new just opening this past June. All of the equipment is extremely clean and fresh, and they strive very hard to keep it that way by enforcing a strict sock and hand washing rule. The attendants keep a very close eye on your kids and as they enter the gated play area each child is asked to sanitize for 20 seconds at the washing station. I love that!
The climbers, mats, tunnels and slides are tall, winding and diverse so the little ones can explore their hearts out. However as most moms of tiny toddlers know, they usually need to a parent to help and escort them through the mazes. I love these jungle gyms because they are big and open enough for parents to easily join in and not feel claustrophobic.
If your toddler wants their own small space, there is a place for them in the Cub’s Den. It’s the perfect size for the transitional crawl-to-walker. The Cub’s Den is equipped with a TV monitor of the main play space if you also have older kids and need to keep an eye on them.
When it’s time for a snack, there is a wide selection of healthy options provided by Market Street and a barista bar for a mommy’s afternoon pick-me-up.
If you have little gamer in your family, they will want to check out the arcade with a wide variety of games with tickets and prizes!
Safari Run is not just for the stay at home moms, it is closed on weekends for birthday parties but is open until 8pm perfect for a family evening or place to take sister while brother has soccer practice. They even offer fitness classes for adults and camps and classes for kids.
One visit to Safari Run is $10 which is a little steep in my opinion (those things add up quick!) however, you can purchase a pass of 5 visits for $25 or 10 for $50. We bought the 10 pass and have gone 4 times already! I think that is the best value and totally worth $5 a visit! We love it!
