Safari Sam's is located in Sherwood, Oregon and just a short drive west of the Tualatin exit on I-5. Even though it does take a bit to drive there from Salem, I have found it is well worth it for my kids. Especially on a rainy day when they need to get some exercise!
They boast as having "Oregon's largest Jungle Gym" and I believe it! This gym is huge and multiple levels high. The thing I like the most is that it is set up for parents to be able to go through and enjoy with the kids. Much larger and more comfortable as an adult then the ones you might find at places such as McDonalds.
They also have a big room full of bouncers for the younger kids and both my kids really enjoyed this. They got a good workout here and there is no time limit so they went until they wore themselves out.
Another main attraction is the Glow In The Dark Miniature Golf course. It is well decorated and fairly large and a favorite of my kids and myself as well.
Safari Sam's also has a large assortment of video games and redemption (tickets for prizes) games so there seems to be something fun for kids (and adults) of all ages.
When you work up an appetite, then they have a large menu containing kids fare, pizza, salads, hamburgers, etc. They even have some beer on tap as well as wine. Check out their menu HERE!
If you are looking for a location for a kids birthday party then this would be a destination to look at. They have specific birthday rooms and packages for parties.
Their website states that they have a large sports gym area that can be reserved for groups, but I have never looked at it. They even have childcare there as well.
If you are looking for something different to keep the kiddos entertained and want to get out of the Salem - Keizer area then make the drive to Safari Sam's. The little ones will thank you.
