At TOP we encourage grownups to enter the world of kids at a kid’s level. Most of our rooms include suggestions and ideas for adults to maximize their child’s experience at the playhouse.

At TOP we strongly encourage a maximum ratio of 3 children per 1 adult so that children are guided to get the most out of TOP’s themed rooms.
