The Biggest, Best Guide to Indoor Play Areas in the Chicagoland Suburbs

Indoor play areas are the perfect way for your child to explore and burn off some excess energy as the weather gets cold in Chicagoland. Indoor play areas, in the Chicago suburbs, are finding ways to stay open, limit capacity, and give children a fun place to explore, safely. Some indoor play areas are even finding ways for you to take home these fun exhibits to still stay active and engaged in your own home! Our play area guide encompasses indoor play gyms, indoor inflatables, indoor playgrounds, and even restaurants with indoor play spaces.

Update: We have kept all play areas listed and noted if they are temporarily closed due to Covid-19. This list was last updated October 1, 2020. Please confirm details directly with the business.
