The Block – North Wilkesboro, NC

The Block

This summer we had the privilege of spending 2 weeks with our 6yr old grandson “Brantley”, we had some rainy days and wanted to take him somewhere fun to play with other kids, after some research we decided to go to a place called The Block (just a short 30min. drive from Byrd’s Branch Campground) and it did not disappoint!

The building with bright blue, green and yellow colors, has some raw brick accents & a graffiti look makes for a cool experience.

They have a large trampoline area with a separate dodge ball spot, a foam pit with a battle beam, a Ninja obstacle course (this was for bigger kids), an arcade with lots of great games, a skating rink, and Gellyball tag arena (it’s something like laser tag but with gel pellet guns), and a café with snacks and drinks, also coming soon a rock-climbing wall! The prices were great, and the staff was pleasant, we had a fantastic time, and it was a great way to spend a rainy day!
