** Updated 4/4/12 – the play area has been removed. The carousel and ‘quarter’ (really 75 cents to $1) rides are still there. Carousel price has increased to $2. **
Some information today from Sarah C. It is great to have play areas where I can shop, too!
Cary Towne Center has a play area for kids located just outside of Sears. It is nicely walled in with only one entrance and a padded floor. There are cushy benches throughout so mom and dad can relax while the kids burn energy. It is smaller than those at other area malls. Inside are a slide/tunnel designed to look like a beehive (note: the slide is very steep– not good for younger children), a news desk complete with a TV and mounted camera so children can see themselves giving the news, and a tower of stacked blocks to spin.
Just outside of the play area are vehicle kids can “ride” with a few quarters (or a bit of imagination) and the highlight of it all: a carousel. Tickets for the carousel are $2.00 each. Parents can accompany a child under 44 inches for free.
