Play Structure AdventurePlex at Marine, Manhattan Beach

5 Level Play Structure AdventurePlex at Marine

The AdventurePlex at Marine in Manhattan Beach California is where we took our 11 month old son Christian this afternoon for some family fun!  The address is 1701 Marine Ave. Manhattan Beach, CA 90266, only about 10 minutes away from our house in Redondo Beach.  We arrived at 2pm this afternoon and enrolled our son in a 90 minute interactive tumble class called “The Best Playdate Ever” which also included food and playtime in their 3 story high play structure. That thing was massive!  

During the first half of the class we spent time singing and dancing to songs like the “hokey pokey” with other parents and their toddlers.  Christian can’t walk yet, so we just propped him up and tried to go through all the motions and keep up with the others.  We did everything from playing catch and passing big foam balls back and forth to walking on balance beams (a few inches off the ground), to blowing bubbles and encouraging the kids to jump and burst the bubbles as they floated in the air.

After about 45 minutes of interacting with the other toddlers and young children in this musical forum, we left the class room and walked downstairs to the Courtside Cafe.  We sat down at one of the tables where our program director brought fruit, cheese and crackers for Christian to eat.  There were several other choices of food, but this is what we had selected for him when we first registered.  The Courtside Cafe is right next to the registration desk, and that giant play structure that I mentioned before was in the room next door just a few feet away.  I’m 42 years old (today is in fact my birthday), and I was eyeing that 5 level multi colored jungle gym with the same kind of anticipation and excitement that the kids around me were!    

Christian had the time of his life in that play structure.  It reminded me of a life sized hamster maze but on a much larger scale and on 5 different levels! Thankfully there was a section that was designated for children 3 and under, so we didn’t have to worry about Christian getting tramped on by some of the older kids.  We still had to keep a close eye on him, but all the padding everywhere made this a very safe place for him to play.  If you’re looking for a good place for your children to consume some of their energy, look no further.  This monumental play structure at the AdventurePlex at Marine is the place to do it!

    My sister’s family recently went back to the adventureplex with their two kids… they absolutely loved it! Their kids are a bit older (6 and 8), which is exactly what makes this place so special. It appeals to kids of all ages!
