Thanks so much for tuning into KTAR’s Evening News! If you’d like to enter to win a family four pack of tickets to the Arizona Renaissance Festival, please head over here.
Spring Break is next week for many Arizona kids and just in time Pogo Pass secured a new fantastic venue! You can still head over here to get a pass for just $39.98 with code ALICIA (usually around $100).
To make the deal even more exciting, if you buy or renew a pass in March (remember to use code ALICIA) you’ll be automatically entered to win 4 tickets to Wicked at Gammage!
Starting March 6th, your pass will get you into Makutu’s Island in Chandler twice with your year-long pass (Monday-Friday). Tickets are usually $10 each and here’s a description of the place:
“Makutu’s (Ma-coo-two’s) Island, one of America’s largest indoor play places, is a trip into fantasy and adventure for children of all ages and a perfect way to beat the Arizona heat. Designed with a tropical theme, Makutu’s is a lush, exciting indoor “island” with towering trees, climbs, bungee, zip tracker, arcade, café, theater, toddler zone and mysterious caves.
The centerpiece of Makutu’s Island is its magnificent indoor tree. Filled with tunnels, tubes, mole-holes, fire-poles and slides, the magnificent tree offers hours of fun and adventure. Around the tree’s perimeter, guests will find animals carved within its extensive roots and a comical three-animal totem pole. Within the majestic tree, the “banana” slide is a sure thrill as it starts on the forth level in the air and winds more than 35 feet around the outside of the tree to its base.
After exploring the tree, many of Makutu’s guests find themselves in one of the three adjoining play structures including the Blue Fantasy Tree, Pirates Cove and Palm Slide. Less rigorous than the old oak tree, these areas are perfect for the less-experienced island traveler and include tunnels, caves and a zip-line.
In addition to Makutu’s main four play areas, the island also offers its smaller guests a special toddlers area. Oscar’s Lagoon is a slower placed environment of Makutu’s smallest “castaways.” In the Lagoon, toddlers will enjoy three small slides and soft foam blocks.”
