Summer may be around the corner, but kids at FUNBelievable Play have gotten a head start! In fact, toddlers and older girls and boys love sliding, swinging around and bouncing inside this exciting Lakeside facility year-round.

The colorful three-level mega play structure is the main attraction, and kids have a blast riding down tube slides, climbing rock walls, playing with tiki-figure punching bags and zipping across aerial glides. The sports arena gives future athletes the chance to kick goals and shoot baskets. Little ones have their own space filled with soft toys, a mini ball pit and mini slides — perfect for playtime with Mom or Dad.

At FUNBelievable Play, parents get front-row seating to the play structure, allowing them to check out the action up close. They can either participate with the kids or lounge in comfy sofas, get work done or catch up with friends. Guests needing to refuel are invited to visit the Snack Shack, offering everything from fresh fruit smoothies to made-to-order sandwiches and paninis, along with an espresso bar offering hot coffee, iced coffee and coffee shakes. For a sweet treat, order one of their delicious “Ice Cream FUNdaes.”

For birthday parties and special events, FUNBelievable is the place to go. Voted BEST kids party venue in Southern California and San Diego for two years running, the facility caters to all needs and budgets, including Mini-Party (8 children maximum), Semi-Private (up to 20 children) and Private Party (maximum capacity of 150 guests) packages. Professional and attentive staff can help make the set-up, party and breakdown a breeze. Party slots book up fast, so plan ahead and book early.

Great for open play, rainy days and holidays, FUNBelievable is also the place for camp! Offered for children ages 3 and older, multi-activity camps run from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. with a dedicated camp leader rotating through lots of action-packed activities like arts and crafts and group games. A snack is also provided. The rate is $25 per day for the first child, and $20 for each additional sibling. FUNBelievable simply requests that your child be potty-trained.

Other offerings include:
• Hero Mondays, available to law enforcement, military and firefighters. Bring your I.D on Mondays for a special discount.
• Toddler Tuesdays, featuring activities and free cookies and juice for kids with their admission from 10 a.m.-noon every Tuesday.
