Best Indoor Playgrounds In The Atlanta Area

In Atlanta, sometimes it's just too hot to tell the kids to go play outside, but you don't want them sitting in front of the television all day, either. Consider taking them to one of these indoor playgrounds to blow off some steam. You can meet up with fellow parents and relax a little while your kids tire themselves out. When they fall asleep in the car on the way home, you'll know you've had a successful day. 

Mighty Jumps
1019 Collier Road N.W.
Atlanta, GA 30318
(404) 351-1818

Mighty Jumps is a great place for kids to get together with their friends and just go crazy. There are five large play areas, as well as separate spots for birthday parties. There are plenty of bouncy castles and a few arcade games as well. Parents will enjoy the free hot coffee, even if the place is as loud as you would expect from this type of establishment. It also tends to be less crowded and less expensive than some of the fancier venues. 

Catch Air Sandy Springs
5920 Roswell Road
Sandy Springs, GA 30328
(678) 882-1205
Catch Air is a great spot for younger kids to have a good time safely. There are slides, inflatables and a Tiny Town for tots under four feet tall. It's known for being clean and small enough that you can keep an eye on your kid at all times without having to hover. It's a great place for a day out or a birthday party, but be warned that it can get crowded during peak hours.

The daredevils in your family will love the Cosmic Rock Wall and the SkyTrail Discovery Ropes Course. Of course, the main event is Georgia's fastest indoor karting track, where your kids (8 years and older) can race around the track, but there is also even a zipline trail.
