    Kids are having a good time.

    And they do have salads.

    But the pizza requires internal organs of stainless steel.

    And the ball pit, where my kids liked to hang out, was on the opposite side from the animontronic mice.

    you do a favor for the kid, when they grow up the kids might indulge you.
