We believe that families need different types of play to help children develop and for adults and children to enjoy their time together. Scramble has the only World of Play system in the United States. It was built by the UK’s leading soft play manufacturer, Soft Brick, and it features the two types of play essential for child development: physical play and cognitive play. Physical play has two pa

rts: gross-motor, or large movement, play is very energetic and is needed for bone density, muscle strength, and flexibility; fine-motor play is more about muscle control. Physical play is perhaps the most common activity thought of when adults think about children playing. Yet it is cognitive play that is now believed to be the biggest factor in how human brains develop differently from other animals. Cognitive play comes naturally to children, if they are given the opportunities to play freely in a stimulating and safe environment. This is what Scramble uniquely provides with the World of Play system. A current description of cognitive play has 4 types of play: creative, imaginative, social, and storytelling. As a child develops and matures, he or she will build their range of cognitive play to include more and more of each type. Very young children will start with creative and imaginative play. As toddlers move from parallel play to engage with others, they will start playing socially. At the Elementary school level, children will be exploring storytelling play and utilizing their imaginations and creative skills in earnest. We’re here to provide safe, clean fun for kids — and the grownups who love them!

Native American Heritage Month is meant to celebrate and recognize the culture of the Native American community. This includes the contributions of baby bottles, corn, rubber, chewing gum, pumpkin, avocado, mouthwash and so much more. Native Americans developed sign language that greatly benefits the deaf community. They also played a huge role in major discoveries in the health field like the chemical in many aspirins and the concept that led to the development of vaccines. These contributions will always be remembered and appreciated by the Scramble family!!

Changing the way families play

Everything at Scramble is about play! We believe that families need different types of play to help children develop and for adults and children to enjoy their time together. Scramble has the only World of Play system in the United States. It was built by the UK’s leading soft play manufacturer, Soft Brick, and it features the two types of play essential for child development: physical play and cognitive play.

Physical play has two parts: gross-motor, or large movement, play is very energetic and is needed for bone density, muscle strength, and flexibility; fine-motor play is more about muscle control. Physical play is perhaps the most common activity thought of when adults think about children playing.

Yet it is cognitive play that is now believed to be the biggest factor in how human brains develop differently from other animals. Cognitive play comes naturally to children, if they are given the opportunities to play freely in a stimulating and safe environment. This is what Scramble uniquely provides with the World of Play system. A current description of cognitive play has 4 types of play: creative, imaginative, social, and storytelling. As a child develops and matures, he or she will build their range of cognitive play to include more and more of each type. Very young children will start with creative and imaginative play. As toddlers move from parallel play to engage with others, they will start playing socially. At the Elementary school level, children will be exploring storytelling play in earnest. Note that social and storytelling play rely heavily on creative and imaginative play skills.

We believe that Scramble provides the most complete and innovative play environment available in the United States. It is, as far as we know, the only play center with a reading area as part of the play mix. We also sell Usborne books - these are designed to be “played with” as part of the process of encouraging children to read.

Just pick up our online order. Thank you so much for brightening our day with some puzzles, games and of course books!! We miss you, Scramble!! Can’t wait to come back & play!!
If you are up for a play time with the whole facility for your kids only today is the day to come to scramble, I can say that everything in the facility is spotless clean and there only was a couple of kids there.
Any local friends looking for a fun treat for your kids tomorrow morning? Come get a FREE photo with Santa by professional photographer Allison Meyer (Ally Day Photography) at Chris Collins Dance Studio ( just a couple doors down from Scramble) from 9:30-12, and check out our amazing raffle and bake sale. Come visit us and support our dancers!
Clean, safe and designed to let kids’ imaginations run wild. Great place to let kids be kids.
Hello, we were at Scramble for my daughter’s birthday on Sunday and had such a pleasant experience. However would like to communicate couple of points for a better customer experience.
- Food policy is pretty strick, there should be some flexibility for snacks and drinks (coffee, coke - price is very high internally)
- Water- after the second refill of the pitchers, we were asked to get additional bottled water. This policy was not written anywhere. We already purchased plenty of food from the place at least cost free water should be complementary.

Thanks!
Probably the best indoor play area in the entire NOVA area, it’s spacious, entertaining and clean. Friendly staff, and safe environment make this place the perfect space to play with your child. Every adult that comes in must be registered to a child, so no weirdos are just lingering around the playground, all family and friends here! Great job!
Idk, but I'm sure it wasn't in Mexico!!
Hi! Any deals/coupons for the month of June? Just went there this past weekend and the kids are obsessed! Can’t wait to go back.
Took the kids to Scramble this past Wednesday & they had the best time! So clean, staff was great and plenty to keep the kids entertained. Wish it was closer, but will definitely be coming back with some friends!!!
Hi Scramble, we are planning to visit tomorrow. Will the rates be the normal weekday rate or the holiday rate? Thanks!
We love this place
What are your opening times/prices for the holiday tomorrow? Thank you
