It’s been said that play is the highest form of research. We agree, because we believe so strongly in the value of play, we created The Wishing Tree Play Cafe —a uniquely clean and beautifully designed indoor play space, café and party destination where kids can be active, imaginative and creative, and grownups can stay sane.

Pre-buy your passes before you arrive to save extra time for play! Bringing a friend? Make sure they create a KidCheck account here to handle the waiver. And be sure to read Coco’s wishes for positive play and check out the café menu. Looking for an easy gift for a new mom, grandparent or sitter? Buy a Wishing Tree Play Cafe gift card! We look forward to seeing you!

Good News! We are expanding into next door! Thanks to your overwhelming support, we’re bursting at the seams! So, we’re adding additional cafe space & group seating with toys within reach so you can enjoy time to sip and dine while they explore! You may notice a little noise from the construction while we prepare. We are also hiring a few additional team members, if you think you’d be a great addition to our awesome team, apply now!

And More Good News! We will offer complimentary classes! You spoke, we listened. With our expanded space, everyone can have more fun! We’ll offer weekly music, art, Princesses, Show-n-Tell, storytime, parent workshops and more included with your paid admission!

Reminder: Everyone is required to remove shoes before entering the play space. Gripper socks are required in the play space. $2 socks are available for purchase for those who forget.
