Neptune XXL Climbers
Our popular Outdoor Play Plaza stands 30-feet-tall and taps into a child’s creative level of problem solving, teaching children how to go from point A to point B with no specified path. For smaller children, we have a smaller climbing structure, along with the flubber cube and net swing. Please note: children must wear open-toed shoes to climb. Also, in the event of inclement weather or high heat index, the play plaza will close.
