“The sun did not
shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house. All that cold, cold, wet
day.” The Cat in the Hat, Dr. Seuss
Got cabin fever and no cat in a hat to keep the kids
entertained? Unfortunately January, February, & even March in the Midwest
means not the best weather for the kids to go out and play. Luckily if you're
visiting Springfield, we have many options for indoor play to let the kids have
an amazing afternoon, day or even weekend of play.
Ergadoozy - Specializing in play for kids 12 and under,
Ergadoozy has 7 different areas for kids play.
Check out the 5 story jungle climber with triple wave slide & hand pedal train ride!
Bounce Tag - Located in a large spacious building, Bounce
Tag has brought the inflatable bounce houses indoors. They also have play activity areas, laser tag
& an arcade with prize counter.
Sky Zone - Located on the Westside of Springfield, Sky Zone
is a giant trampoline park with lots of jumping fun. Play some Skyhoops
(trampoline basketball), tug-of-war on the foam block pits, or just jump
Skateland South - A Springfield roller skating institution,
Skateland South has been around for decades.
Spin those wheels around the rink and "shoot the duck" while they spin the tunes.
Kidzeum of Health & Science - Located downtown near
other historic attractions, the Kidzeum is a facility for children to learn
about a healthy body, healthy Earth, & healthy community. Three story tall Active Alex will
educate the kids while keeping them entertained.
Mary Ann MacLean Play Museum located inside the Illinois
State Museum – Inside the Illinois State Museum you’ll find the Mary Ann
MacLean Play Museum. Designed for kids
ages 3-10, the museum lets kids examine fossils, crawl through a cave, and much
more fun activities.
Need to do some shopping?
When you’re in Springfield, both SCHEELS and White Oaks Mall have play
areas for children. Designed for younger kids, the
play areas are perfect for one parent to relax and watch the kids play while
one parent does some shopping. Everyone will leave happy!
