Parents with young children know how challenging summer break can be. It's a time when kids constantly need entertainment and activities, leaving parents looking for new ways to keep them engaged.

One study found that kids say "I'm bored" about 200 times during the summer. This can turn a time that should be relaxing into a constant search for fun things to do in and around Minnesota to keep the kids happy and occupied.

Back in the spring, we compiled a list of some of the most epic indoor playgrounds in Rochester, Duluth, and the Twin Cities area and now we're learning of a new indoor slide park coming to Minnesota.

Slick City is Coming to Minnesota

Exciting news for families in Maple Grove! Slick City, a popular chain known for its indoor Slide/Action Parks, has announced plans to open a brand-new location. This will be the first Slick City in Minnesota, joining their existing parks in Colorado, Missouri, Texas, and Arizona.

We're used to driving to the Twin Cities for events and attractions so we'll check out this new park at 10900 Fountains Drive in Maple Grove.

It looks like a fun paradise for kids and adults alike, featuring towering slides, a massive playground area, and a trampoline basketball court. And, it's the perfect destination for all kinds of weather – whether it's a rainy day, a scorching summer afternoon, or during our notoriously harsh winters.

The owners are planning to be open by next summer.
