What if you could transform your home and entertainment experiences in unexpected ways? We leap into the excitement surrounding the grand opening of the Planet PlaySchool Family Entertainment Center at Westfield Garden State Plaza. Brought to life by Kingsman Experience and licensed from Hasbro’s PlaySchool, this 20,000 square foot wonderland promises to ignite imaginations with STEAM-based interactive attractions, including a real-life mousetrap game, a Play-Doh imagination station, and a Spirograph art studio. Nostalgia meets modern fun with a branded Easy Bake Cafe and a retail store, ensuring an enchanting experience for kids and families.

Switching gears, we highlight the rise of pickleball entertainment venues, starting with Crush Yard, a colossal 47,000 square foot facility near Disney World in Orlando. Featuring 10 indoor pickleball courts, an arcade, private event spaces, and a gourmet restaurant with a bar, this venue is set to become a haven for pickleball enthusiasts. With upcoming locations in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, and Brentwood, Tennessee, Crush Yard is making waves in the sports and entertainment world. Tune in as we discuss the appeal and longevity of pickleball venues, compare indoor and outdoor courts, and share our personal anecdotes about the sport’s rapid growth. Don’t miss our thoughts on your anticipated reviews, a humorous note about Christine managing some background noise, and our heartfelt send-off encouraging you to stay tuned and keep kicking ass!
