When they need to take a break from all the action, they can munch on delicious snacks from our kids’ menu, like macaroni and cheese, mini hamburgers, chicken fingers and French fries, as well as Mexican classics like chicken soup with rice and vegetables.
If your tweens are looking for technology access, we have just what they need. Our fast internet keeps them connected, so they can stay in the loop with what’s happening back home. They can also just chill out and watch their favorite movie or play Xbox 360.
