Tropical Adventure Indoor Playground Hours
Tropical Adventures is open Monday to Saturday 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. This is an unsupervised playground and children under the age of 7 must be accompanied by an adult. The jungle-themed play structure offers caves to crawl through the caves, a waterfall slide, and a five level spiral slide.
Tropics Waterpark at Shoreview Community Center
The indoor waterpark has a tropical theme as well. Families will enjoy it because it has areas designed for every age. For the little ones, Shipwreck Beach is a zero-depth play area with a shipwreck boat slide, palm tree splashpad and a water walk. the bigger main pool offers bigger kids and adults space to play water sports or float on a sea creature. The three-story "Shark Attack" water slide allows participants to choose their own music as they slide down.
There is also a whirlpool and sitting area for the adults. However, it is pool policy that an adult must be in the water with and within arms reach of all children 6 and under. As anyone with multiple children of this age group knows, this is nearly impossible for an adult escorting more than one child, so be prepared to bring back up when taking younger siblings.
Birthday Parties at Shoreview Community Center
The Community Center has several all-inclusive party packages to choose from. They are held at set times on Saturday and Sundays. This is a great option for the last-minute party planner, as you can book a party as late as the Wednesday before the party (dependent on availability).
