|Cold temperatures have finally arrived in NE Florida! Before kids, this kind of weather would mean sweatpants, lifetime movies, and a comfy blanket on the couch, (drink in hand). For some reason, my two boys don’t seem to share my vision for a perfect cozy day. We set out in search for a kid-friendly version of indoor fun and found a local gym to explore!
We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym was founded to provide an inclusive place for children of all abilities and levels to play and grow together. The gym is designed with unique equipment to aid children with sensory processing disorders. The goal is for all children to safely play, learn, and have fun while socializing!
We Rock is open 7 days/week from 9am-6pm. The only exception is if there is a private party or event, so check the calendar first. PRO TIP: I found the website difficult to navigate. I couldn’t find hours or class information so I ended up calling. Besides open play, they offer classes, special events, and venue rentals for birthday parties. For infant-aged children, open play is $12 per child, with a discounted rate for siblings at $10. They also offer monthly or packaged memberships.
We Rock offers We Rock Care: Break Time Care and One-to-One Attendant Care, as they recognize everyone needs a break. Break Time Care is as it sounds: simply a break for you! One-to-One Attendant Care is geared towards children who require constant care with a higher level of support needed. Both services are $12/hour.
I have been to We Rock a few times, both during the week and on a rainy weekend. My boys love all they have to offer but know them as the “zip line place” (My oldest son rides at least 15 times!) The huge trampoline is a favorite and they can bounce and safely chase each other. They have huge swings, monkey bars, and a rock wall. For imaginative play, they have a kitchen, train set, and costume area. They truly offer something for children of all ages and levels.
We typically spend 2 hours at the gym. No shoes allowed; socks are required. The facility was cold, so we always dress in layers. They have snacks and beverages for sale but allow you to eat your own snack in the main entrance area. One con worth mentioning; I didn’t find this to be the cleanest facility. Nothing was outright dirty, but it just didn’t have that “fresh” feel I’ve come to expect from facilities like these. And if I’m being honest, the staff could work on their hospitality skills. But on a positive note, we do receive several emails with discounts and an annual free open play for birthdays and membership anniversaries, which is a great way to reward loyal customers!
