In the western part of Montreal in Vaudreuil there is a large play centre for kids 12 and under called Zig Zag Zoo. Besides the catchy name they have plenty of stuff that will keep the young ones in the family entertained for hours on end. On these hot summer days it is hard to keep the young ones actives without getting overheated. The solution to that problem is to take them to the air conditioned confines of Zig Zag Zoo.
Inside the large structure, which is in a strip mall just off the 40, you will find an immense structure with tubes, slides and all kinds of other things for the kids to climb on and through. Inside the structure, which is four stories high, there are mazes, tunnels, a trolley glide, snake pit pendulum walk, monkey play obstacle with hand rings, 4 slides, and a 12 foot suspension bridge. Most of the tubes are fairly large allowing parents to partake in the fun with their kids. Around the circumference of the room are other activities like a traverse climbing wall, a mini soccer area, a toddler area with soft toys for kids 3 and under, a new Aeroball basketball-trampoline, Lightspace play (an interactive light game), and an air hockey table.
It is the perfect place for a kid birthday party. There are several different packages to choose from that either include a meal or not. Many of the packages include birthday cakes (a little extra for a theme cake), a private party room and an animator. It is great as the kids can run around and then eat and the parents do not have to do any of the cleaning up. There are also group packages that are perfect for daycares, sports organizations, schools, and playgroups.
For parents there is a snack bar and leather couches to sit down on around the room.
Please note that everyone (including babies and parents) has to wear socks and that no outside food is allowed.
There will be a Zig Zag camp this summer from August 20 – 24. It costs $40/day or $180 for the week.
