Why leave your kids with a babysitter when they can have some serious fun? On select Friday and Saturday nights, your kiddos will go on a themed adventure in the gym, and you will get a night to yourself.  The Little Gym has multiple locations in the South Sound, including Federal Way and Puyallup. “I think what separates our Parents’ Night Out events is our attentiveness to the age of each child present,” shared Samantha Lloyd, Program Director at The Little Gym of Puyallup. “We make sure that the games and activities we provide are age-appropriate for both the younger and older children in attendance.”

Price: Typically between $30 and $40 depending on location. Member and sibling discounts available.
