While we have seen some warm days with the indiscriminate weather patterns this winter, it is safe to say we have seen our share of frigid temperatures too.
No matter what the forecast says, kids are ready to play and there are several indoor playgrounds in and around Atlanta to take kids in these chilly months to burn off some energy.
Maybe one of these places is near you!
Indoor Playgrounds In and Around Atlanta
Inside the Perimeter (ITP)
Offering a large open space with bounce equipment and opportunities for climbing, sliding, running, and jumping, they also include a toddler-only area with fun toys away from the bigger kids.
Children’s Museum of Atlanta
Supported by volunteers and donors, the expansive Children’s Museum offers enrichment and play for children ages 0-8 through their play exhibits including “Gateway to the World,” “Fundamentally Food,” “Step up to Science,” “Leaping into Learning,” among others.
Near Northlake Mall, Defy offers kids a place to test limits and push physical abilities with a ninja course, extreme dodgeball, battle beams, wall jumps, and more.
Offering drop-in and drop-off play (potty trained required for drop-off), Oodazu caters to kids ages 3 to 9 with bounce houses, climbing walls, virtual reality, ping pong, and basketball.
Legoland Discovery Center
Shut down in September 2022 to undergo its first renovation since 2012, Legoland will be opening back up in March and is ideal for ages 3 to 10.
