While some kids are content to play on the floor, there’s always a few that climb the furniture before they walk, jump from heights that make you brace for injury. They seek adventure in a way that only they’ll understand. Don’t worry, we have you covered, these Indianapolis area spots are ready for that adventurous kid — they’ll give them wings, and a harness. They’ll let them leap…into a foam pit. They’ll be able to climb and flip and run and jump, in a controlled environment that isn’t your living room.

Indoor Adventures

Zip City

Jump on indoor trampolines, zip across the building from high above, play the ultimate game of hide and seek with laser guys and vests, roll around and knock in to things with the Knockerballs, climb as high as you can on the rock climbing wall. Zip City is a one of a kind, one stop shop for kids and parents whose second nature is to seek adventure and activity. If you have a kiddo under 3 years of age, there’s a Toddler Town.
