Kids Empire Opens at Great Lakes Crossing Outlets

The newest indoor play space in Auburn Hills is designed for active play for kids of all ages.

Grab your kiddos and head to Kids Empire, the newest kids attraction at Great Lakes Crossing Outlets in Auburn Hills.

Kids Empire is an indoor playground for kids of all ages. The colorful activity space is designed for active play, including dancing, biking, climbing and much more. If your kids love to exercise, need to let out some steam after a long day at school or just want to get out of the house and let loose, Kids Empire is the place to be.

Little ones will love getting their wiggles out in the Tots Area. Designed just for littles, the play zone has low slides, a bouncy (but not too bouncy) trampoline, bikes with training wheels, an open play floor and, of course, a ball pit. 

Big kids can let loose in The Maze. The extreme play space has everything they need to burn off some energy: a climbing maze, a giant spinner, child-sized “motorcycles,” an obstacle course, a sports arena and more. 

Plus, all-day re-entry makes it easy to make Kids Empire part of your next family play day. Snack boxes are available for purchase, but if all this dancing, climbing and sliding has worked up an appetite, all you need to do is sign out and grab a meal nearby before you head back for more fun.
