Indoor Safari Park in Southlake

3 Feb

Part toy store, part jungle-themed play place, Indoor Safari Park is a great place to go during the cold-weather months when you just can’t take another day at the mall.  It has a miniature golf course, a train, ride-on robotic safari animals, a multitude of train tables, a trampoline, a slide and ball pit area, and 2 birthday party rooms.  Outside food and drink are not permitted, but they do sell snacks and drinks in the back of the store.

Another cool feature they offer, which is a great idea but in my opinion fell a little short, was the ceramics painting area.  Kids can paint a small ceramic item as part of some admission packages.  My kids loved it, but it was nowhere in the ballpark of a place like Creative Hands in Arlington.  Only a few colors of paint were available, and some of the paint was moldy.  Once my kids were done, the ceramics didn’t get glazed, they were just set out to dry.

Overall, the place was a huge hit with my kids.  They loved riding the train and the robotic animals, and we played golf a couple times.  And they burned off ridiculous amounts of energy in the slide/trampoline/ball pit area.

The one drawback to the place, which was a HUGE negative for us, was that they recently installed a TV in the main play area.  For my kids (my son in particular), that proved to be a huge distraction.  The owner, a very nice woman, said that she had just installed to play educational jungle-related videos; however, when we were there it was playing Nick Jr.  If I’d wanted my kids to watch TV I could have just stayed home!
