That is a really nice playstand!

In your last thread, you wrote about a problem with your budgies' feathers.

Have you had her in to see the Avian Vet yet?
I would recommend you ensure she is in good health before you try introducing her to
new experiences. Even new and fun things can be stressful and stress is not good for a budgie that may be ill.

Before you let your budgie out of her cage, please ensure your room is "bird-safe".
Cover any windows, doors or mirrors so she doesn't fly into them and get hurt.

How are you planning to get her back in the cage?
Chasing her to catch her is not a good option.
Has she learned to step up?
If not, you need to be prepared to wait until she's ready to go back in her cage on her own or you can attempt to entice her back in when it's time by dimming the lights in the room then stand by her cage and ring a bell on one of her toys and tell her it's time to go back in her cage. It may take some time before she does so, so be prepared to be patient and reassuring with her. When she does go back in, give her a treat and lots of praise.

Training through positive reinforcement is always best!
