|Making her wish|
Okay fast forward to yesterday. I had a play date for Crash & I today and I got a text from my buddy A.H. about changing our whereabouts from OMSI to OOTW. OMG....tingles shot up my spine and a feeling of dread washed over my body. I quickly hopped online to come up with an alternative plan and then called her. She calmed my nerves, explained that a weekday early afternoon is nothing like a weekend or vacation day visit. Since it was half off entry and they have a fantastic lunch special I said we'd give it a shot.
We headed straight over after dance class, the parking lot was nearly empty, something I am not accustomed to, so needless to say I was floored by how empty it was when we got in. No big kids, hardly any kids at all really. Crash immediately dropped my hand and went running to the pit of plasma cars. Seriously I had to run after her to remove her shoes and big coat. So far so good she hadn't noticed the giant, mind numbing climbing structure, I was dreading having to climb in and its usually T who goes in and chases the kids down not me. OMG my little hellion was having such a good time, playing in the 5 and under bouncer/slide whatchamacallit, the small kid climbing play structure and slides, the various play houses and play kitchens . But then she sees it. Fuuuuuucccccckkkkkk!!!!! I cannot stop her and she runs in and starts climbing. Yep im in the giant structure, over and over. Okay, okay I had fun with her, climbing and sliding. I would totally do it again.
So I retract my hate for this place under 1 condition I don't ever have to go there for a weekend bday party, weekend dinner or lunch, or a weekday during school vacation. I'll be limiting my visits to weekday afternoons while school is in session.
If you're in the Portland area and you haven't been to Out of this World its worth a visit if you have kids between 2-8 (10 max, any older and its just weird because a 12, 13,14 year old should have better things to do then climb in these things). Between now and 12/16 admission is 50% (we paid $2.50 for Crash who is 2 years old)
