My grandchildren and their friends stay cool by going to SkyHigh Party Zone in Murrieta during their open play times. It is cool and clean and fun.

Thanks Tifeni! I am aware of the Party Zone and their play times, I have even featured it before. It is nice to hear the good review and will be taking your suggestion and adding it to future 5 Things. Now that it is summer, kids need more places to play! Thanks for reading.
