170 Iron Point Road, Folsom

The McDonalds in the parking lot for the outlet mall has an indoor play structure. The sign on the structure suggests it is suitable for ages 4-12, and this is probably fairly accurate, as the only thing less than six feet up in the air is the hamburgler create-a-character (tic-tac-toe style) game, and the structure is definitely not designed for adults to assist or climb. Access to the green pod is no longer available (a window blocks the tunnel) but the yellow pod is accessible.
