OK parents, lean in.
We’re in a difficult time of year, when the weather is weird and the children are crazy.
If they’re not trying to hunt through the presents, they are playing football in the living room, the softball landing expertly between glass ornaments and that pasta-and-glitter thing they brought home from school with their picture wreath inside.
An indoor playground might just save your sanity this holiday season.
Romp-O-Rama, in Corona is just the place, with loads of long slides, a colorful indoor playground structure and the chance to either come for a quick playdate or stay all day.
And when I say all day, I mean it.
It has bleacher seating for parents in the big room, little classes all day with sports or game skills and nice comfortable café tables around the little play neighborhood. There is even a parents' lounge, which is perfect for moms who don’t have to help overexcited toddlers play, allowing them time to sit down and catch up for a while.
Romp-O-Rama has a vending machine for sweet tooths and other items available for purchase, but orders can also be made for the restaurants nearby to deliver – meaning you can stay and play without packing a lunch or snacks.
I really enjoyed how clean and accessible the indoor play areas are -- they look brand new, though the location has been open for more than a year. The bathrooms are clean and have changing tables.
The big play structures are easy for young children to navigate, explore and get lost in, though I could tell from a quick check they are completely safe inside. There are various routes along the structure that are easy for younger children to climb, but others that are more challenging for older kids. That works because we want them safe but worn out, right?
My 3-year-old adored climbing quickly up the "stairs" next to the giant slide and flying down over and over. I climbed up and rode the slide a couple times as well – he loved racing Mommy.
In the little pretend neighborhood, he sat down to watch “The Polar Express” in the theater. He then donned fireman and police costumes, locking up the same silly robber over and over (I just can’t learn my lesson, apparently) in the play fire station and police station.
Even though we arrived at a quiet time, the place was full of kids soon shooting balls at each other, diving off the trampoline into foam cubes and climbing all over the place.
Romp-O-Rama, and I, highly recommend wearing non-skid socks on your trips. Regular socks still work, but feet slip on the nice clean floors. That goes for adults, too.
Romp-O-Rama has variable pricing depending on how much entertainment your kids need. Admission for kids 1-17 is $9.95 with two adults free. All-day play (which doesn’t allow exit and re-entry) is $17.95, and a Super Saver Pass with 10 entries is $79.95. Additional adults over the two allowed per paid child is $4.95.
There are also monthly memberships starting at $39.99 for the first child and $29.99 for the second.
From Dec. 19 to Jan. 6, Romp-O-Rama will also host more enrichment classes to help keep kids entertained.
