Gorilla Hole at The Woodlands Rec Center
Written by Jenni Fisher   
Ever since my boys were little and I'd scour the calendars for fun stuff for us to do, I'd come across the "Gorilla Hole" for tweens at The Woodlands Rec Center and wonder what it was all about!
 
This past fall my oldest son began 5th grade and was "eligible" to go try it out.  He rounded up a few of his friends, excited about a chance to be out on the town at night without his parents hovering over him, and headed to check it out.  He had a great time and we felt confident leaving him there for a few hours of social fun!
 
Gorilla Hole is for 5th and 6th graders and is held the first Friday of each month from 7-9:45.   After paying their $7 entry fee, parents sign their kids in with an adult supervisor, they get a wristband and off they go!  The kids spend time playing organized and unorganized games of basketball, dodge ball and dancing to fun music and just hanging out. Snacks and drinks are provided for a few dollars extra.  
 
If you have a 5th or 6th grader who's looking for a little independent-supervised fun, try out the Gorilla Hole.  Our review:  two thumbs up from a few 11 year old boys and their moms!
