We love calling central Indiana home, but it can be brutal here in wintertime. It’s easy for the whole family to catch cabin fever when temperatures drop and the snow just keeps on falling. That’s why we put together this list of our favorite family-friendly indoor attractions in the Indianapolis area.
Are the kids bouncing off the walls? Sky Zone is a great place for kids and adults alike to get all that pent up energy out! You can jump for as little as 30 minutes or as long as 120 minutes. They also offers Skyrobics, Toddler Time, and Special Needs Hour. Sky Zone has 2 locations in central Indiana, Plainfield and Fishers.
The Urban Chalkboard Play Cafe is the perfect place to arrange a playdate. Parents can enjoy a cup of coffee while the kiddos enjoy play activities designed to help them develop important cognitive, emotional, social and motor skills.
There is no need to wait until summer to get your swim fix! Caribbean Cove is a 50,000 sq. ft. tropical explosion of year round family fun! The park features several water slides, a plunge pool, a sports activity pool, an interactive playscape, a 700 gallon tipping water bucket, a lazy river, and much, much more!
The Discovery Station at Conner Prairie is a kid-sized play area perfect for young kids to climb, crawl, explore, create, and build. It’s all indoors and open all year round.
The Rhythm! Discovery Center is the world’s foremost percussion museum. The exhibits are interactive, educational, and engaging. It’s a great place for the family to learn about music, cultures, and performing.
Recreation Unlimited is actually a huge showroom full of playsets, hot tubs, pool tables, sheds, and so forth for sale. Not only does Recreation Unlimited encourage you to bring your kids to the showroom to try out the playsets, they also offer a “Pay to Play” option where for $8-12 (depending on the day) kids can go to town on several indoor playsets.
