Interactive Play Zone

You don't have to be a kid to enjoy the play zone! Bring the family down to Jack Elstro Plaza and enjoy the wide variety of fun activities. In the past, they've given us slides, ping-pong, miniature golf and more! Are you brave enough to set in the ice throne? Fun for the whole family!
