Indoor Play Centre Hell

I have been bribed into Indoor Play Centre Hell. Nefarious was invited to a classmate’s birthday party at an indoor play centre: multi-level playground with soft-fall mats, trampolines, rock climbing walls… A kid’s dream! And a parent’s nightmare!!

Evil Genius Tool #2 – Spinning Teacup
