We went to the Carnival Zone when they first opened the doors. My son was 2 years old at that time. The owner of the Carnival Zone was super nice and personable and insisted we receive free admission since he wasn’t done with their toddler section yet. He definitely went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and stood out customer service wise compared to other inflatable and play areas. I would highly recommend everyone go check it out. Fun, affordable day for the family with A+ service. – Tiffany Smith
