I used to go to indoor play parks only when it rained. Now I go when it’s over 100 degrees as well. At this time of year, it could be either.
Adults have to wear socks at We Rock the Spectrum Kids Gym in Carmel Mountain (858-798-5353), but kids can let their little piggies breathe free. “We are a kids’ gym specialized for kids who are on the autism spectrum or who have other special needs,” says Carmen, “but we do welcome all kids. Our equipment may seem standard, but a good number of items are designed to aid children with sensory processing disorders. Things like the zipline, the carpet spinning swing, and the hammock swing. Of course, we also have slides, tunnels, trampolines, and climbing structures. And there are toys: train tracks, kitchen sets, and costumes. There’s an arts-and-crafts room; in back, we have a quiet room where kids can build puzzles or read books. And check out our website for special classes in things like yoga, martial arts, or autism movement.” Guests can bring in snacks, but they must be consumed in the lobby eating area.
Admission is $12 per child, $10 for each additional sibling. Discount price for military: $10. An all-day pass with in-and-out privileges costs $20. Discounts available for packages or monthly memberships. (Call for details.) Hours: 9 a.m.–6 p.m. Monday–Friday, though Carmen advises calling to confirm or checking the Facebook page, as hours may vary.
