Review of Planet Obstacle: Trampolines, zip lines and giant slides, oh my!

Last weekend, I headed over to Planet Obstacle with daughter. In the past, we have been to many a bouncy house (can you say – go to birthday party location) and trampoline parks. But Planet Obstacle seemed like it took both to the next level, at least on paper, so we wanted to see if the promise would be realized. It definitely was, and then some.
