In a unique twist to typical play dates, the City of Plymouth is rolling out a playtime experience specially tailored for kids with disabilities and sensory sensitivities. In collaboration with Urban Air Adventure Park, the city will host Universal Air, a one-of-a-kind sensory-friendly event, from 8 to 10 a.m. on Sunday, June 16 at Urban Air, located at 3580 Holly Lane N. in Plymouth, as reported by a recent city announcement.

Universal Air aims to ensure all kids can have a blast without the risk of getting overwhelmed by the usual bustling environment. Parents can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that their children can jump on trampolines, tackle the ninja warrior course, and play dodgeball in a space tailored for their needs. And for those seeking a break from the action, quiet rooms stocked with sensory activities will be available.

Removing common triggers for sensory sensitivities, the event will forego the usual loud overhead music and jarring flashing or strobing lights. Instead, the focus will be on providing a calm and inclusive atmosphere for children to enjoy themselves freely, according to details specified by the City of Plymouth.

Those eager to partake in Universal Air should note that pre-registration is required, with a $20 fee per child. Parents and guardians, you're in luck—not only is your entry on the house, but you don't have to sleep fretting over an extra sign-up chore. However, don't put off reserving your child's spot; make sure to click over and preregister swiftly.
