Hwy 100 and National ...

In recent times, McDonald's has been undergoing something of a renaissance into trying to become some odd upscale Starbucks-a-like, and in doing so, as a parent, I've been disappointed to see a number of nice playlands disappear. McDonald's seems to have forgotten that they have the playland market cornered... so anyways, I've decided to review some and share some hints for other parents.

This used to be one of the nicer McDonald's around, with a generously large playland. Unfortunately, it had closed this summer, and was demolished. We were delighted to find out that the replacement store had a playland, but what they implemented for a playland was disappointing at best. It is a definite case of "we tried to upscale this and forgot entirely about what made this special."

The new play area consists of some video games (we have better ones at home, duh), an air hockey table, all of which are free play (that at least is a good move), and a little playland that is essentially a small cage with two levels, a log roll, and a slide. Putting more than a few kids in it gets crowded and difficult for the young ones. Someone completely flubbed on this; it was clearly an attempt at an upscale playland, and I'll bet it was designed by someone who had never had kids, or had never understood what kids find attractive about a playland.

A friend of mine had planned her daughters 6th b-day party there. The price was reasonable for the time spent there. However, we were asked to pack up after not even 2 hours because they had booked a party after us. Mind you that was not told to my friend until they asked us to leave that a party is only for 2 hours and exactly 2 hours. We barely had enough time to gather all the happy meals up ect before the next party was being set up.
