Wet winter? Or is it just too hot to be outside? If you’re looking for an indoor play space that is clean, safe and engaging, look no further than Kid Ventures. Imagine a limitless creative indoor space where kids are encouraged to let their imaginations run wild. Kid Ventures claims to be on the forefront of “edutainment,” where kids from walking age up to 8 years old can explore, create and enjoy the various “boutique-style” play facilities.

Kid Ventures’ main playroom offers various themed areas, including a pirate ship, castle, diner and a fire engine. Each area allows kids to explore and use their imaginations to create their very own adventure. Meanwhile, parents can enjoy fair trade organic coffee or grab a bite to eat and enjoy free wifi in the Parents’ Café while keeping an eye on your children.

During spring and summer, Kid Ventures hosts specialty kids classes that expose children to the fundamentals of music, the fun of cooking and the fine motor skills of sewing. Registration does fill up, so be sure to sign up soon. Be sure to check out the themed summer camps as well, where your child can go on a Jungle Safari or cut a rug at the Disco Dance.

Kid Ventures also hosts birthday parties and group events as well. Check out their website for party package deals that work within any budget.

  • First child: $12/day
