[0050] In addition, a lane marking (L) may be indicated on the upper surface of the plywood plates (W) of the uphill road 81 and the downhill road 82, but as occasion demands, it is preferable to indicate the lane marking (L) after the finishing sheet (T) made of a hard rubber material is piled up on the plywood plate.

[0051] In the meantime, as occasion demands, the uphill slope section 81a and the rest section 81b may form the uphill road 81 and the downhill road 82 with a simple structure. Alternatively, in some cases, the vehicle track 80 may include only the central blocking wall 83 formed at the center and the fence wall 85 formed around the central blocking wall 83 without the uphill road 81 and the downhill road 82 so that cars can run unidirectionally or bidirectionally.

[0052] In addition, the central blocking wall 83 and the fence wall 85 also have shock absorbing pads (C) and finishing sheets (T) of a predetermined thickness so as to prevent children's injury by absorbing shock when children are bumped against the walls 83 and 85 while being absorbed in playing.

[0053] However, if the interior is constructed with hardwood or special foamed materials, because the hardwood and the special foamed materials function to absorb shock and prevent injury, there is no need to form the interior with the shock absorbing pads (C) and the finishing sheets (T) doubly. Therefore, use of the shock absorbing pads (C) and the finishing sheets (T) doubly is selectively determined according to interior finishing materials.

[0054] Moreover, the nursing room 90 for infants who need to sleep or who need to nurse is located at another side. In this instance, it is also preferable to mount a sink 91 at an entrance.

[0055] Furthermore, the kids cafe having themed play facilities and food-and-beverage offering facilities according to the present invention further includes: the throwing game room 100 where children throw non-woven balls toward a target so that the balls stick to the target; the PC game room 110 equipped with computer gaming machines for children; the baby-only theater 120 where babies and their parents or guardians can watch a movie or a performance; the cave play facility 130 formed in a shape of a cylindrical winding cave; the reading room 140 where children read books together with their parents or parents read books to their children; a toilet 150; a shower room 155; the cypress chip room 150 which is filled with cypress chips 161 of small particles; wheat playroom 165 where children can play with wheat on behalf of sand; a cafe kitchen 170 where children and their parents or guardians can order tea, beverage or food or cook food; and the rest area 180 having tables 181 and chairs 182 so that children and their parents or guardians can sit on the chairs 182 to take a rest or eat some food.

[0056] Conventionally, children enjoy playing with sand in a sandy field to build a sand house or a sand castle using a toy fork crane, a bulldozer or a dump truck. However, if the children eat sand while playing with sand, it may incur a danger. Therefore, the wheat playroom 165 is provided to make children play with wheat instead of sand in safety even though an infant puts wheat in his or her mouth.

[0057] Now, the cypress chip room 150 will be described. Japanese arborvitae in the technical name is a plant of arborvitae family and is widely known as a plant providing phytoncide in the mental health medicine field.

[0058] Further, phytoncide is a material contained in plants, is defined as a material to restrain propagation or growth of microorganisms, and has been widely known as a sort of secondary metabolites of plants in the academic world.

[0059] Now, it has been proved that phytoncide of cypress is nonpoisonous, and even though a person inhales essential oil after diluting and volatilizing the essential oil, it is harmless to human bodies.

[0060] Additionally, in general, it has been also widely known that the strong scent of cypress is effective in sterilization, deodorization, skin whitening, blood circulation, increase of immunity, antioxidation, promotes blood circulation and metabolism, is good to wood bathing, and is effective in overcoming fatigue and has effects of good health and longevity.

[0061] Therefore, many famous movie theaters in Korea use cypress scent in order to clear moviegoers' heads in the sealed spaces, and it has been proved through an experiment that cypress scent lowers thickness of cortisone, which is a stress hormone, to 50% in stress-inducible situations.

[0062] Especially, it has been also known that cypress scent increases sleeping hours and causes a deep sleep due to a pleasant feeling and a relaxation effect, is effective in regulation of blood pressure and enhancement of the blood circulation system, and is effective for hyperlipidemia and thrombus heart failure. Therefore, the cypress chip room 160 tranquilizes anxiety and testiness by clearing children's heads while the children playing for fun.

[0063] In the meantime, kids cafe is a space for children and their parents or guardians, and is generally installed near an apartment complex or a town.

[0073] Therefore, the infant or the child can obtain much brain activities and learning effect while having a good time in the various themed facilities, and the parent may find the child' special ability early while seeing that the child is playing with a special interest.

[0074] Furthermore, the infant or the child who finished playing in the first room 31 to the sixth room 36 can go to the air bounce room 40 through the connection passage 3040 to do sky jump, or go to the rock-climbing structure 50 constructed on the wall body (D) to climb up and down rocks. The infant or the child who used the air bounce room 40 and the rock-climbing structure 50 may go to the ball pool 60 to enjoy swimming in the ball pool.

[0075] Additionally, the infant or the child who used the ball pool 60 may go to the block playroom 70 to play with building blocks or self-assembly toys.
