New play elements, buildable foam blocks, interactive light spot and more
Lewisville, Texas (April 28, 2014) ~ Vista Ridge Mall powers up the fun with its all-new play space created by Center Stage Productions! For kids, there are all sorts of imaginative play elements for climbing, jumping and pretending. With a nod to the city, all seven play structures have a Lewisville-area twist and are set atop colorful padded carpeting. The centerpiece is a playful replica of Lewisville’s water tower where children can slide and crawl through. There are larger-than-life cowboy boots for more sliding activity, giant silver horseshoes for crawling under and a friendly horse for climbing.
On one side, the brightly colored floor replicates a pretend Lake Lewisville, complete with fishing boat, cute duck and an adorable green frog. For added fun, these pieces and the horse are embedded with sound sensors that make sounds when children make contact.
A unique feature of Vista Ridge Mall’s new play area is a specially designed section filled with oversized blue foam blocks in all sizes and shapes. The blue blocks are lightweight and easy to stack, encouraging unstructured free play and allowing little guests to build on their imaginations. Adding sparkle to the play area, there’s a heat-sensitive charging bench that lights up and changes colors.
Comfy seating offers parents and caregivers the chance to sit and relax while overseeing the children’s play. Plus, Vista Ridge Mall offers free wifi in the new play place and throughout Vista Ridge Mall, so adults have the opportunity to browse the web or check in electronically with the office.
“We are thrilled with our newly renovated play space here at Vista Ridge Mall. It’s bright, colorful and fun, with all new play elements. We are especially pleased that we were able to incorporate a new area that’s stocked with oversized foam blocks that kids can use to build forts and little play spaces,” says Leanne Lowry, general manager of the shopping center. “And, we didn’t forget the adults. While we know that an adult’s first job is supervising the kids, with the free wifi, there’s an opportunity to catch up on email or check out what’s new at the center on vistaridgemall.com.”
The play area, located on the lower level near Dillard’s, is open continually during mall hours. It is designed for children under 42 inches in height. There is no admission fee, but parents/caregivers are required to stay with children at all times.
