Fun Park Amusement Center - Sherwood Park

Outside the city at 3001 Buckingham Drive, this Fun Park is jam packed with entertainment for all ages. Recently renovated last year, this place has received rave reviews from parents. Your best value is to go on weekdays with a little one, as you get unlimited play time for the same price as 1 hour on weekends. It's also much less busy, and busy times could be intimidating for a younger child.

Their indoor jungle gym is jungle themed and easy enough for children to climb, crawl, swing, and slide their way around. Their open jump trampoline park has a toddler area, dunk zone, dodge ball, foam pit, and even a ninja course. Once they've blown off steam, there's laser tag, arcade games, and more.

As far as supervision, there's even a licences restaurant up top where you can keep an eye on your kids below. You can also be right on the floor with them as long as you have grip socks. Note that a common issue for parents is that they feel it is slightly understaffed, so depending on your child's age, skill, and comfort level, you decide how close you should stay.

Play Time Pricing (Weekends): 1 hour of time $15.97 for 7 years and older, $10.97 for 6 years and under

More Great Options to Consider

While those are the main indoor playgrounds around the Edmonton Area, there's still tons of places to have fun while remaining indoors. Here's a few suggestions we liked from parents:

Tegler Discovery Zone  This new indoor play space re-creates local wildlife habitat in a way that allows children to learn about nature through play. Designed for children up to age 10, although all ages are welcome. 

Terwillegar Community Recreation Centre (NW) - Kids can climb, slide, balance and roll in a spacious room full of tyke-sized play equipment from 8am to 8pm daily. Suitable for younger kids, up to 10 years old. Included in regular admission (and free for supervising parents).

Launch Pad (NW) - Although on the pricier side in comparison with others on the list, this ultimate indoor trampoline park is tons of fun for the whole family. 

Fast Track (NW) - Indoor karting if you're feeling the need for speed! Drop in racing available with Junior and Adult tracks available.

My Gym (SW) - This child fitness center is structured around classes instead of drop-ins, but it's an amazing way to keep your kids active while having fun.
