Our Story

And why we exist in this world!

We conceived POD 22 because we felt something was missing in the Family Entertainment Center arena.  As such, we set out to reinvent the concept of indoor playgrounds to include amenities for the enjoyment of kids and adults equally.

As parents we are constantly on the run. Days don’t seem to have enough hours for all our to-do’s and as a result we put ourselves last. POD 22 aims to put the parents’ needs on an even keel with the kids’ needs. Our ultimate objective is to enable Time: with the kids or in different activities – but all in the same space.

Oh! About Our Name...

A pod can be a vessel, a crate, a structure, a shell, a capsule, or a framework. And that’s what we offer –a special space for you and your family where all can be together. And the 22 is not a hashtag, it is a number. It is all about that famous ‘Catch 22’ – “a dilemma or difficult circumstance from which there is no escape because of mutually conflicting or dependent conditions”. A mouthful, we know. But simply said POD 22 is about eliminating that catch 22 and giving both, Parents and Kids, simultaneous and guiltless me time while being together as a family.

Look at what we have accomplished so far! #ohsoproud
