Places to Play Inside in Indianapolis and Surrounding Areas
Always call ahead to check on hours, special closures or changes in schedule. Many indoor play places offer open hours because of volunteers, consider taking a shift! Please bring your own clean socks and check the rules for bringing your own food and beverages. Playground manufacturers generally have their own recommendations for the equipment including not wearing jewelry, loose clothing, or clothing with drawstrings. All of this is for your child’s safety while playing in the play structure and play equipment. If you’re interested in swimming in an indoor pool, we know where those are too.
