Twin Cities Indoor Playgrounds: West Metro *** Check out our complete Family Fun Twin Cities Indoor Playgrounds Guide ***
Open Play hours:
Mon-Sat: 9am – 9pm, Sun: 9am – 6pm. Check website for summer and holiday hours.
Admission: $7 plus tax/per child over 1 year of age, adults free.
Details: Either be prepared to lose your children completely in the 37-foot main play structure or get an awesome workout trying to keep up with them! This is our family’s favorite metro-area indoor playground. The kids are entertained for hours running back and forth between the “peak” and the Great Hall, an activity room filled with balls, scooters and a bounce house. A small toddler area is included, but it’s tough to keep the littlest ones from straying into the massive “big kid” apparatus. Don’t forget the socks (or an extra $2.50 per pair)! Bonus: the lush indoor landscaping of Edinborough Park makes it feel like summer year-round.
Open Play hours: Daily 8am – 8pm
Admission: $4/per non-member ages 18 mons.-4 yrs., $5/per non-member ages 5+, adults free. Half-price Mon-Fri after 1pm, Sat-Sun after 4pm.
Details: Newly expanded, this multi-level indoor playground has a mini rock climbing wall and a space dedicated to toddlers. Socks required. Read More
