Indoor Play Areas Offering Private Rentals

Indoor play areas have always been a great way for kids to burn off extra energy in these cold winter months, but it’s been a tough year for these businesses. However, as COVID-19 guidelines are set to change in the coming weeks, you may even find that more places are able to safely open with extra cleaning procedures and limited capacities. Additionally, some spots are offering full-facility rentals so that your family can play solo! 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 January 13, 2021. Please confirm details directly with the business.

This article is sponsored by Playroom Cafe. They are offering private rental of their play space! Spots open up every Monday and only two weeks are available at a time, so everyone has a chance to enjoy their amazing indoor play area.
