Indoor play centers are a parent’s saving grace when the weather or other obstacles prevent the kids from playing outside. Whether they go bowling, play in an arcade or take on feats like bouncing around a trampoline park, there’s fun to be had. Sometimes indoor play can be educational, too, such as inside children’s museums. Here are the best kids' play centers in New Hampshire.
Bounce houses, arcade games and giant indoor slides await the kids at Krazy Kids. Parents must accompany their children, and there’s something for all ages. There’s even a Krazy Tots section.
Bounce in vast trampoline rooms, play basketball on a trampoline surface, play in the dodgeball court, play games in the arcade. All these activities and more are available at Launch Trampoline Park. Open to all ages, kids under two are free.
Featuring all day admission and only costing $12 per person, Cowabunga’s is very popular with New Hampshire parents. Inflatable climbing structures and slides, games, ball pits and more await kids of all ages. There’s even a café when the little ones need a bite to eat.
Schedule jump time in half hour or hour-long increments at Blitz Air Park. Kids can jump in the wide, open space, play basketball in a smaller enclosure and go wild with games in the modern arcade. There are plenty of places for parents to sit and watch, or they can come onto the trampolines if accompanying small or special needs children.
Featuring indoor playgrounds, indoor amusement rides, arcade games and a kiddie area, FunWorld is the perfect place for the whole family to play. Admission is free, but there are costs inside, depending on which activities your children want to pursue.
Rumble Tumble is an indoor play place for children through age 10, although it really is far more geared to the younger (ages 3-7) kids. Climbing structures, bouncing rides, a giant slide and more are perfect for spending a morning or afternoon engaging in active play.
Geared toward small children, Cheshire Children’s Museum provides lots of interactive fun. Kids can learn about New Hampshire history, transportation, the resources in the state and more. Perfect for toddlers through about age seven, parents can easily spend a couple hours with their kids when they visit.
Featuring 5,0000 square-feet of indoor play space, Twice the Fun is for ages 12 and under. There is a dramatic play zone, a trampoline track, a contained play and climbing structure, a trike track and a netted basketball court.
Although Vertical Dreams is for both adults and children, there are separate, scheduled times for the kids to climb. The indoor rock climbing gym is for all ages, but few under five even give it a try.
Countless interactive and educational exhibits await kids at the Children’s Museum of New Hampshire. They can learn about space, money, caves, the ecosystem and more. They’ll have so much fun, they won’t even realize they’re learning!
