KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Temperatures in the Kansas City metro were dangerously cold on Valentine's Day.

"It’s a pain," said Natalie Allen, walking on the Country Club Plaza.

Snow continues to fall with sub-zero temperatures. Many people bundled up and walked briskly if they were out and about.

"Ready for some warm weather, ready for the spring," Allen said.

The bitterly cold temperatures prompted a lot of parents to bring their children to indoor play grounds like Superkidz Club in Mission.

"There’s not much we can do outside," said Ron Schroeder, who brought his two daughters to the indoor playground to burn off some steam. "The kids want to get outside and play but you really just can’t get out there with this type of weather. Trying to find little activities like this to get out and get some energy out."

Parent Cierra Buchanan took her daughter to the playground to celebrate her fifth birthday.

"It is freezing outside, but I didn’t want her to be stuck in the house so we came out here," Buchanan said.

But major weather days like this fuel business at the club.

"As long as it’s cold, rainy, super hot or extremely cold, we’re usually booked," Pat Crowley, Superkidz Club manager, said.

The facility has several areas where children and adults can play together.

"We have a trampoline, we have slides we have a spider tower that you can climb up through," Crowley said.

This place keeps adults and children out of the bone-chilling weather to have a little fun.
