If you are a fellow Marylander, you know how unpredictable the weather can be. One day it’s snowing and the next it’s hotter than Hades. Especially in the spring and fall, these fluctuations can make it really hard to plan for outdoors activities. Fortunately for your kids (and your sanity), you won’t ever have to miss out on play time because these 3 indoor playgrounds in Maryland bring all of the fun of outdoors play inside. Let’s dive in.
1. Hyper Kidz – Columbia, MD
I’m going to start with the cheapest of all of the indoor playgrounds in Maryland. Hyper Kidz is a pay per child facility, but there are no time restrictions so you can stay as long as your children are going on strong. Personally, that was my favorite feature of this playground because we were able to truly get our money’s worth.
Another really cool feature about Hyper Kidz are the three separate play areas for different age ranges. There are 0-2, 2-8, and 3-13 year-old sections so you never have to worry about your child being around kids who might play too hard for them. Each section is jam packed with fun obstacles and toys to play with. With so much to choose from, it’s really easy to lose track of time here (again, thank goodness it’s not pay per hour!).
Hyper Kidz is open 7 days a week for open play so you don’t have to reserve a spot. For a faster registration, fill out the waiver for each child in your party ahead of time. Take it from me, who was not prepared, it’s hard to get your kids to sit still for that process when they see all of the other kids having fun.
2. Badlands Playspace – Rockville, MD
Badlands Playspace is truly a unique take on bringing the outdoors inside…literally. There are trees, grassy hills, and giant rock structures for the kids to climb on and play with. This is another pay per child facility; however, you only get 2 hours of play and it’s only open Tuesday through Sunday. Badlands Playspace also requires a waiver to be completed for each child so save some and fill it out online.
Badlands Playspace is much more than just physical fun. When the kids are done breaking a sweat on the playground, they can head to the workshop to play with brain building tinker toys. There are different animals the kids can help feed at certain times of the day. Badlands Playspace also offers weekly programs and workshops to really get the kids thinking and hands on. Overall, this indoor playground is an excellent option if you are looking for both a playground and an educational experience.
3. ClimbZone – Laurel, MD
Aaand now the coolest of all the indoor playgrounds in Maryland; ClimbZone. Maybe I’m a little biased because our family loves to rock climb, but ClimbZone is hands down the coolest indoor playground on the list. Similar to the other two playgrounds you pay per child, but admission gets you 3 hours of play all seven day of the week. Again, fill out the waiver ahead of time to save time.
ClimbZone is similar to SkyZone, but instead of trampolines there are different rock climbing obstacles. Unlike the other playgrounds on this list, parents are allowed to join in on the fun and climb as well. If you follow me on Insta, you can see a silly photo of the kids and I tackling Mount Rushmore together.
If you have younger kids who you are worried may not enjoy climbing, fear not. ClimbZone is equipped with a 3 and under play section and multiple bouncy houses. If your littles are feeling brave, they do have harnesses for kids of all sizes so everyone can have a chance to climb.
