Play Place

Remember when nearly every McDonald’s had a playground inside of it, full of soft plastic tubes and slides? All the larger locations were equipped with one, and the ones that weren’t were called ‘express’ locations. Not that is makes the ‘food’ any more condonable, but at least they provided the option for children to burn off some of that sodium laden faux-meat they were scarfing down.

I think such things still exist in the more suburban and rural areas, but I have yet to locate a single McDonald’s location that still sports a play area in Vancouver. True, they never smelled very good – but isn’t it a good idea to encourage your children to be active, especially when they are consuming food with absolutely no nutritional value?

All locations have wifi though, so that’s good; That means you are even more inclined to remain sedentary whilst staring at your choice of mobile device…
