During tonight’s game against the Kansas City Royals, the Baltimore Orioles are debuting a revamped Kids’ Corner near Gate C.

(Insert joke about the much-needed distraction from the team’s lousy play here.)

The most noticeable change is the new Bird House, a tree house and jungle gym built with the trunk of a naturally fallen redwood tree that features a slide, little rock-climbing walls, a tic-tac-toe board and more.

Other favorites such as the moon bounce, skee ball and large bobblehead figures will remain.

The team is also expanding concession options in the Kids’ Corner to include exclusive items like snowballs, corn dogs and chicken nuggets in addition to the fare available throughout the stadium. Parents: There are adult beverages too.

The Kids’ Corner expansion comes on the heels of the team’s announcement that it would be offering tickets to children ages 9 and younger for free throughout the season.

“We are investing in our fans’ day at the ballpark by creating a 360-degree experience by focusing on local food brands, a variety of sizes and prices for the consumer, and innovative kids initiatives,” Greg Bader, Orioles Vice President of Communications and Marketing, said in a statement. “Baseball is the sport that welcomes everyone at every price level, while delivering the top experience back to consumers, and the Orioles and Camden Yards will continue to lead the way in providing this top value experience.”

Get a look at the new Bird House below.
