Flip City - Fantastic Fun

This location is now closed!

Today we visited Flip City. Flip City is also knows as AGT Flip City and All World Gym. They are located at 32556 Dequindre Road in Warren.

The place is a little difficult to find. It is on Dequindre, south of 14 mile on the east side of the road. Just south of the Penske truck Rental. You can look for a building that says "Auto Concepts" on the front and turn down that drive way. There is a sign for "Flip City" on the lawn, but I missed it twice. Here is a picture if you decide to go, to help you find the place:

They have open gym weekdays from 10:30 to 11:30 and 4:00 to 5:00. The cost is $5 per child. You do have to fill out a waiver, so if it is your first time, give yourself a couple extra minutes to fill out and sign the paper. They also accept credit cards which is nice, since I almost never have any cash on me.

They also offer a open gym in the evenings where you can drop off your child for a few hours (ages 5 and up) and enjoy some adult time. The times and cost can be found on their website

They just added a bunch of trampolines, which the kids really enjoyed.

Plus the old trampolines (in the corner) with the foam pit and mats.

The two runner trampolines, uneven parallel bars.

Balance beams and lots of space to play.  (There is a preschool class in session here.)

And a basketball court that wasn't very well lit.  

The kids all enjoyed jumping into the foam pit. Although I recommend removing socks as they are easily lost in the pit.

Overall, we really had a great time. there was a lot for the kids to do and kept them busy.  An hour seemed like it was enough for all the kids, although we were able to stay until 12:00 (1.5 hours). 

There is a lot of wear and tear on much of the equipment. Foam pads falling off, tape coming up, the blocks are worn, pads are ripped and worn, and the carpet could have used a good vacuuming. But for $5, it really is a great deal and the kids didn't care.   And after an hour of play their feet were not dirty.  The equipment is well worn, but it appeared to be clean. I recommend Flip City for anyone over the age of one. 

I received no compensation for this post.  All opinions are my own, your experience may differ.
