It’s not the biggest and it doesn’t really have the best feng shui either. But what’s in here is really good. Our kids (ages 3 - 10) always have a awesome time at this playground (and they're the best judges). The plane slide is a hoot and not to be underestimated. Now that it’s been fixed, it’s super duper fast and a pretty tight squeeze up the top too. A perfect travel stop.
