The Monkey House is an indoor playground that specializes in private events such as birthday parties but offers open play hours Tuesday through Sunday.

Monkey House Square 3We were lucky enough to be invited to a birthday party shortly after they opened. The Indoor Play Center is 5000 square and includes inflatable bounce houses, an obstacle course, an eighteen-foot slide as well as climbers and a foam pit.  While not as elaborate as some of the city-owned indoor play areas, it is head and shoulders above any mall play area I've gone too. 

What they really need to do is offer a game-day package for football season. I'd be lining up to go almost every Sunday if I could watch the packers in peace while they kids had a good time (and everyone had pizza).

Finding The Monkey House

We found the facility a little hard to find. The building is tucked back in a warehouse area of White Bear Lake. At the time Google Maps repeatedly led us to the wrong building and, at least in 2013, the sign was not easy to spot from the road. Especially if you are attending a birthday party, I would recommend leaving time to find the place. However, I note that our directory map has it labeled well.
