We understand it feels like things are changing daily at InnerActive! We apologize in advance for any confusion on changes to capacity limits, changes to play areas onsite, masks vs no masks, etc. As we receive guidance from the state, we are updating our business to comply. Also, as we see problem areas on a day to day basis changes are occurring as well. Please see below for the most recent/up to date info to keep all of our guests safe! Your safety is our priority!
InnerActive's Policy Regarding face coverings: Face coverings are REQUIRED for all guests ages 6 and over. Children under age 2 years do not need to wear face coverings. Children between the ages of 2 and 5 years old are not required to wear face coverings, but are encouraged to wear a face covering when in public. If you or your child are unable to wear a mask, you are welcome wear an alternative face covering (e.g., a face shield).
A “face covering” must be worn to cover the nose and mouth completely, and can include a paper or disposable face mask, a cloth face mask, a scarf, a bandanna, a neck gaiter, or a religious face covering. Masks that incorporate a valve designed to facilitate easy exhaling, mesh masks, or masks with openings, holes, visible gaps in the design or material, or vents are not sufficient face coverings.
Who needs to wear a face covering?
Adults and children ages 6+ are required to wear to wear a face covering at all times while at InnerActive, it may be temporarily removed while eating/drinking when sitting at a table in our cafeteria. Children under age 2 years do not need to wear face coverings. Children between the ages of 2 and 5 years old are not required to wear face coverings, but are encouraged to wear a face covering when in public.
how do we social distance with children?
InnerActive has posted signage in each area with a safe occupancy for each play space. Parents are responsible for their children at all times, and are responsible for supervising play in a socially-distanced manner.
Who is exempt from wearing a face covering?
Children who are two years old and under. Children between the ages of 2 and 5 years old are not required to wear face coverings, but are encouraged to wear a face covering when in public.
When can a face covering be temporarily removed?
Children may remove their mask while playing at InnerActive, if the level of exertion makes it difficult to wear a face covering, provided that social distancing is always maintained.
When eating or drinking while seated at a table in our cafeteria, provided that at least 6 feet of physical distance is maintained between persons who are not members of the same party. A mask does need to be worn if sitting at a table working or visiting.
While communicating with an individual who is deaf or hard of hearing or has a disability, medical condition, or mental health condition that makes communication with that individual while wearing a face covering difficult.
Should I say something if someone near me isn't wearing a face covering?
Yes, it is your family's health and if someone is violating the listed policy, it is well within your rights to ask them to comply. We recommend politely asking them to use a face covering, and you can direct them to our website, the signs around the park and to our vending machines (masks are available for purchase for a nominal fee). If they still refuse, please send us an email HERE and note the time of the situation so we can address the customers directly.
Where can i find more information on this mandate?
If I have a medical condition, can I come in without a mask?
Due to the nature of our play space, we stress a safe and healthy area for all of our families and their kids. If you are unable to wear a face mask due to health reasons, you are able to substitute a face shield or light scarf. EVERY person ages 6+ on grounds must wear a face covering.
What happens if I don't wear a mask?
The hope is that everyone will comply voluntarily to keep others safe. If you choose not to wear a mask at InnerActive, we will ask you to leave for the health and safety of all of our guests.
The legal consequences to the business and the individual are as follows: For Individuals: If mask mandate is violated, customer could be charged with a misdemeanor and fined up to $100. For Businesses: We could be charged with a misdemeanor, up to $1000 fine, or imprisonment not more than 90 days.
Are you limiting capacity?
InnerActive is currently limited to 25% capacity, which is 150 people.
A safe capacity is also listed at each play area. We do not have staff onsite to enforce this in each area, and ask that you and your family refrain from a space that may be near the posted capacity for your own safety.
Households should be 12 feet apart from one another when playing with exertion. 6 feet spaced at all other times.
How do you control the capacity?
We are able to monitor our capacity in a few ways. We can control the number of passes sold in a day, we can monitor the number of people entering using our door code system, and we are able to monitor the number of people onsite at any time using our camera system. Between the 3 processes we have a very firm grasp at our capacity limitations at any time.
If at any time our capacity is near to reaching capacity we will temporarily shut off the purchasing of day passes. We can also turn off the keypad at the entrance door to not allow any further entrances.
If we have a time where we are nearing capacity we will post on our website about a temporary hold on purchases/entrances.
What are you doing to sanitize?
We are building on the processes that already were exercised before the pandemic such as daily sanitization of ALL equipment with health-care quality sanitizers.
We have increased the frequency of cleaning of high touch surfaces, including tables, door handles, faucets, etc. Sanitizing wipes and spray are provided throughout the space to allow you to sanitize further as you see fit!
We will continue our care efforts, including crew members wearing masks and/or face coverings, and making gloves, and additional sanitization stations available for customers.

Our membership cancellation policy will remain in effect, with no updates at this time. We understand if your family feels it is best to cancel your membership and return at another time.
To cancel your membership, please login to your membership account (Minnetonka or Mounds View). For more detailed instructions and illustrations, please visit our membership cancellation page. If you decide to purchase another membership in the future, the membership rate and fees in effect at the time of your purchase will apply.
InnerActive is Open!. Masks are required for all guests while at InnerActive. We truly appreciate our community's effort to stay aware, limit exposure, support each other, and check-in with others about their feelings during these uncertain times. As a company you have trusted us with the safety of your children since long before any mention of the coronavirus. We are doing everything we can to make sure we do what's best for our family and yours.
The reality of the situation is that this pandemic has hit InnerActive, along with all family-owned, non-franchised, small businesses, critically hard and has pushed Stacy and I to make the hardest decisions we've ever had to make. Every day we hear from you how much you rely on our open hours and availability where others are unable, and how much it helps care for your kids. Our wonderful employees who have worked tirelessly to clean and disinfect every day (since long before these recent events) so that we could work and play safely have been temporarily laid off. We are leaving no stone unturned searching for ways to secure our ability to re-open after these events subside. Unfortunately, the support options being provided at the moment are not sufficient to guarantee our livelihood, and we want to share a few ways we can help each other.
If anyone has it within their comfortable means and would like to help us, purchasing a gift card on the web site will help us today, and will be fully redeemable once we re-open in the future for any membership level or day passes. We have even had the immensely humbling request from many asking if they can continue with membership payments during our closures. For any family willing and able to help in such a way, Stacy and I will be creating a permanent commemoration on-site to thank these incredibly generous families.
While we could say we are heavy-hearted to write this, this would be disingenuous as we are filled with hope. We have been successful as a community in helping families take care of themselves and their children since the very first day we opened in Minnetonka and Mounds View. In the coming months InnerActive will be overwhelmingly bent, but with your continued support we will NOT break and will stand tall with the community again.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support, and for continuing the fight to raise our families with the passion we have been so thankful to share with you. Stacy and Teddy Anderson Owners, InnerActive Playgrounds
