Two weeks ago the Manchild had a milestone birthday, he turned 13. I didn’t talk about it because he didn’t want to really celebrate. How sway? What do you mean? I was all ready to have the party of the year, I had come up with a few themes that I knew he would love. And he loved them, but he didn’t want a party.
Ready set go…
We headed to Zava Zone, if you are in the DMV area this place is located in Rockville, Maryland. They are a Healthy, Carefree, Fun in Motion multi-attraction indoor experience. Zava Zone is the brainchild of two groups of parents who were sick of hearing their children argue about what to do in their spare time. THEY ARE OUR KIND OF PEOPLE!!! I won’t go off on a tangent about this because I know you already know.
Our son loves parkour so I already knew he was going to love this place. We are all about crazy fun adventures so this was a great fit for the family.
Parkour: the sport of moving along a route, typically in a city, trying to get around and through various obstacles in the quickest and most efficient manner possible, by jumping, climbing or running.
This was our first visit so we only signed up for an hour. You can do longer, and we will the next time.
The place is huge, and Saturday is the worse day to go because it is packed out.
LittleCuteLips is having a hanging good time. Meanwhile, the Manchild was trying to navigate the Sonic the Hedge Hog rings.
Both Babe and the Manchild are very athletic and very competitive. So this trip was another Bromance type of experience for them and LittleCuteLips and I were just along for the ride. We had our own fun so we didn’t mind. It is cute to watch.
These were easy to walk across but not as easy to get off.
They made quick work of this, I got up but I couldn’t manage to move to the next pole. I also couldn’t hold my weight up long. I guess stripping is out of my future.
When Daddy helps, it makes things easier.
We all did this one, LittleCuteLips wasn’t strong enough to handle the rope but the rest of us made it to the top.
The trampoline part is just like Sky Zone, Flight and all of those other places. The Manchild loves to backflip, I caught him mid-motion.
Oh, yeah. I got my jump on too.
LittleCuteLips love the foam pit, she jumps and dives and I just help pull her out when she feels stuck. lol
It wasn’t I had in mind, but it was exactly what he wanted. We had a great time, just the four of us. We will go back, we didn’t get to try out the high ropes course. I was looking forward to that part the most.
