Owner description: Paradise Park, Kansas City's Premier Family Destination, has something for the whole family to enjoy. In our fun-filled building, you will find the Children's Edutainment Center (CEdC), a first for the greater Kansas City area that integrates children's educational experiences into a fantasy of discovery play, exploration and fun! From soft play to interactive cooking, children can choose from over 19 different areas. The CEdC caters to children ages 9 and under. The fun doesn't stop there! With a multi-level foam factory, you can fire foam balls through our air-powered cannons, geysers, and blasters. A 24-ft. rock climbing wall is uniquely designed to accommodate the varying skills of climbers of all levels with enough hand-holds to allow the novice climbers to show their stuff. When we say "Take a spin," we mean it with our bumper cars. Play the classics or new favorites like "Big Bass Wheel" and "Highway 66" mini-bowling in the game room. Outdoors, you can race the go karts or jr. go karts around our 1,000-ft, road course inspired track. It's the ultimate driving experience! Our 18-hole miniature golf course is regarded as both beautiful and challenging. Whether you are looking for some extra batting practice or you just want to take a few swings, we have plenty of softball and baseball batting cages. Battle in Laser Tag arena maneuvering your way around the maze tagging all the other players in site. You will also find a children's play garden and picnic pavilion with a nearby campfire area and sand volleyball court. Enjoy our premier hosted birthday parties as well as our first-class indoor and outdoor group facilities that can entertain and accommodate over 1,000 guests. Help build your team with corporate events, retreats or special outings.

“Take the grandkids - they'll thank you for it!”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

Our eight (8) year old grandson is wild for this place! He would ride the go carts all day, everyday if he could.

We truly enjoyed our time there with him. He loved the rock climbing wall, the bumper cars and the nerf ball room - which I am sure is a germ haven. But what the heck?!? Kids gotta play!

“Go Carts not that great”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Our daughter waited a while to ride the go karts. I do not understand why, but they only let 3 people go at one time, which really backed up the line...not worth a 45 min wait.

“Fun fun fun”
Reviewed 1 July 2014 via mobile

Great place to take kids for the day. Lots to do for little kids on up to 10-11. Maybe older but that's the age of mine. Face painting. Fishing. Water play. Small play ground. Arts and crafts. All for little kids. Then the bigger kids gave a ball "war" with air guns. Climbing wall. Go carts. Arcade. Fun for the day. Parents. .. take a book. Or tablet to entertain yourself.

“Kids loved it!!”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Went there on a friday morning for my sons birthday and both my kids had a blast! Was not crowded at all when we went, but school was in session so that helped! They played in just about every area a 5 and 3 year old could! Loved the little store, painting and really enjoyed the foam ball area which costs a little more! Overall spent a few hours there and they came out pretty worn out! Definitely going again!

“Where else are you going to eat?”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

You are there, you are hungry, you can't leave. The only thing close by is the Pork and Pit (FANTASTIC).
