WEST DES MOINES: Kids Empire Jordan Creek

My kids really enjoyed their first visit to Kids Empire in West Des Moines today.  We arrived before they opened and the line stretched out the door.  We left two hours later and the line was still out the door.  That being said, the play area and parent area didn't feel crowded.  

I really like that admission is an all day pass because we were able to leave for lunch, shop at Barnes & Noble and then return to play more.  The location near Jordan Creek Town Center is very convenient.  The newest Kids Empire location opened last week at Merle Hay Mall, which is also ideal for taking a break from play. 

Tips for Visiting
  • Fill out the waiver ahead of time.
  • Bring socks.  Sock are required for both adults and kids.  No shoes are allowed past the entrance.
  • No outside food/drink, except water bottles.
  • Plan to leave for lunch.  Admission is an all day pass and you can return with the receipt.
