Beat The Heat At Bloomington’s Coolest Indoor Playground
Summer is in full swing and if you’re like every other parent I know, you’re looking for fun things to do that will keep the kids occupied and away from screens! If you need a break from the pool or someplace cool to run off some energy, visit us at We Rock The Spectrum!
We Rock The Spectrum is Bloomington’s coolest indoor play place! Our gym is a welcoming and inclusive environment where kids ages 0-10 can explore, make friends, and just generally get the wiggles out! We have made it our mission to create an environment where kids on the autism spectrum can play, explore, and try new things without fear but all kids are welcome here, whether they are on the spectrum or not! It’s a great place for siblings to bond and families to enjoy some unstructured playtime in a non-judgmental setting!
There is something for everyone at our gym! The most popular piece of equipment has to be the zip line with crash pit, followed closely by the big trampoline! We also have several different types of sensory swings for kids that like to have more control over their own movements. Some of the swings spin, some are covered in cloth and textiles that feel comforting under the fingers, and others move back and forth like a traditional swing.
Our newest addition is a rope bridge! The rope bridge helps kids in so many ways! It helps them understand where their body is in space and get better at anticipating and planning movements. This kind of coordination requires brainpower and also helps build balance and strength. The joy on kids’ faces when they master the rope bridge is infectious!
In addition to our regular open gym playtime, we have a number of special events planned this summer! Summer Camps, Summer Sunday Matinees, and open play are ongoing. Past events include Superhero Nights, Princess Tea Parties, Ice Cream Socials, and a Resource Fair – and they may make a reappearance! Let us know what events you’d like to see us have!
We haven’t forgotten about Mom and Dad either! Take some time for yourself and let us take care of your kids. Stay on site and enjoy a massage on special dates. Drop the kids off and head out for date night on any of our Parents Night Out dates, or book some Break Time for your child at the gym while you get some errands done!
