Have a soak-tacular time playing in a 20 ft. square area of FOAM! Think of an outdoor bubble bath, but without the water--just lots and lots of bubbles! Wear a bathing suit and/or old clothes, and bring a towel. The foam is hypo-allergenic and nontoxic, but you will get WET! The foam will be at a lower height/volume for the first hour and higher for the second.
