If you’re one of those kids who says, “Mom, Dad, I’m bored. Can we go somewhere?” and your parents say, “Sorry, honey, we have work to do,” aren’t you just so bummed about it? Well, now you do have somewhere to go.

Come on down to the World Gym in Wantagh. Go on weekends, or in the summer, and they even let you come on small holidays that you have off from school, like Presidents Day, Columbus Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, or any day.

It’s a great place for you and your friends to go play and hang out. You play dodgeball, different competition games, handball, and possibly soccer, and there is a closed-off parking lot where you play basketball, or just have a football pass. There is even an indoor pool. They feed you lunch and they will most likely give you some snacks. And if you have a younger sibling who is too young for sports and is also bored, they have a room where you can color, build with Legos and more. And if you’re not the sports type, in that room you can also make lanyard and beaded jewelry.

Just keep in mind that your parents can come too and work out at the real gym. Just sign up and you’re there. It’s for everyone, so don’t worry about fitting in! It is located at 3728 Park Ave., Wantagh. Online:
