We were sad to learn that Pinwheel Play closed permanently during the summer of 2020. We do not have any more details, but we do have alternatives for families looking for things to do in the Chanhassen area or for nearby indoor playgrounds and gyms.

10 Things We Loved About Pinwheel Play

Located off of Highway 5 in Chanhassen, Pinwheel Play as an incredibly fun, modern destination. Pinwheel Play allowed Family Fun Twin Cities to check out their space for free.  All opinions are mine.

Lisa Perkins Smith, with her husband Bryon, opened Pinwheel Play because they couldn’t find a play space that fit their needs. They wanted a place that was clean, welcoming and catered to many types of open-ended play for the younger set. It was hard to whittle this list down to 10 things; I was very impressed with this well-planned space.

  1. 5000 square feet of play space
  2. Art Room with a project of the week
  3. Active Screen Time Room
  4. Active play
  5. Climbing structure
  6. Books strategically placed throughout facility
  7. Lots of imaginative play options
  8. Blocks and other building materials spread out throughout the different rooms.
  9. Birthday party space to rent
  10.  Open 7 days a week, even holidays: 7 am-9 pm.
  • Pinwheel was not a café, but it had plenty of table space if you bring your own snacks, or there are a few available for purchase.
  • It was a NUT FREE facility.
  • The space was designed for children ages 0-6.
  • Admission: $8.50/child, adults and under 1 yr free w/ paying child.
  • It was an unsupervised but completely secure facility.
