There are some new facilities, and some familiar old ones as well in our updated version.
Just wanted to let you know, but don't let that stop you from reading on :^)
The school year is already upon on, reminding us that the fall weather — rain and all — will be here to stay for a few long months. The chill in the air likely has most of us peeling back layers in our closet trying to find a warmer jacket, while it has also started us on the hunt for fun indoor play places in Vancouver (we all know the importance of warm and dry kids in the winter months).
While some of these places have likely remained popular visiting spots on cooler days in the summer, as kids are growing and changing, their needs often are as well — physically, and intellectually. Because we are aware of these changes and needs, we’ve put together a list of indoor play places in Vancouver to best suit the needs of your family.
Located in North Van, this is one of the fantastic indoor play places in Vancouver you want to be sure to visit. Complete with laser tag, rock climbing, a space jungle, and light space area, your kids are sure to be entertained. Laserdome Plus caters to a variety of age groups, starting at age 4 in the space jungle. If your kids love this place, birthday parties are also available!
Near downtown Vancouver, this is one place you will definitely want to hang out with your kids. Geared for ages 6 and up, Cliffhanger Vancouver offers classes and specialized attention to beginner climbers as well as children. With activities ranging from kids belay sessions, to birthday parties, to junior climbing programs (ages 9 and up) to drop-in classes, be sure to stop by to give this place a visit.
Found in Surrey, BC, this is one of the indoor play places in Vancouver you’ll be sure to add to your list. Though a little bit of an extra drive, the attractions for toddlers through teens will be worth the wait. With bumper cars, an indoor rock climbing wall, laser tag, video games, and a sizeable interactive playground, your kids are sure to find something of interest to keep them busy in the sprawling 7,500 square feet this place holds.
In Richmond, and with the softest sand in the city, you will find an indoor beach welcome to ages 0 and up. Though greatly dedicated to indoor beach sports such as soccer and volleyball, this giant indoor sand box (essentially) has time slots available to the youngest babies and toddlers in your family. During this time, kids 7 and under are invited to dig and explore in the sand with toys, while those looking for a more laid back time can check the link above to inquire into when the 2014 kids movie night will be. The temperature is kept at a balmy 18C, but can be boosted up to 28C for special events. For those interested, 6 Pack Indoor Beach also hosts birthday parties on their sandy indoor beaches year round!
With such a varying display of interactive attractions, this is one of the spectacularly stimulating indoor place places in Vancouver that needs to be visited in person to fully absorb all that it has to offer. With varying displays from theatre shows, learning about history, and building play to learn about the laws of gravity, this is one spot where the mind and body will benefit from all of the available activity. Although admission to the Science World may seem pricey as a one-time visit, if it is one of your family’s favourite places to visit there are decently priced memberships available, and children under three get in for free!
We hope this list helps to keep you dry, occupied, and having fun as you begin to embark on this overcast and rainy season — in your favourite indoor play places in Vancouver!
