PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) − Remember your childhood days of jumping deep into a ball pit and burying yourself in colorful plastic balls? The time has come to relive those memories right here in Phoenix! It turns out, ball pits are no longer just for kids.
The Pit at the Lavatory, an underground art exhibit, opened earlier this month in central Phoenix.
The ball pit has 120,000 balls that drop from the ceiling every night at 7 p.m., a phenomenon the owners call getting "buried alive."
They tout their balls are the cleanest in the world. Every day each ball gets sucked up into a hose and individually cleaned.
The owners had to excavate 300 tons of earth from under a two-story building to install the ball pit that is quite literally underground.
The Pit is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Tickets must be purchased in advance and are $30 for a 7 p.m. time slot to experience the drop and $20 for later times.
You must be at least 4 feet tall to enter. For more information visit Lavatoryphx.com.
