Indoor Play on the Northshore

We have updated this list as best we can for 2021 but please call ahead. Many restaurants are open but have not reopened their play areas due to covid concerns. 

We’ve reached the point of the summer where it’s hot. Really hot. Step outside and starting sweating immediately hot. You know what I’m talking about. And while my kids would be content to lie around watching videos all day I do like to keep them active and there’s only so many times we can visit the splash pad (if you’re looking for water fun we have a list right here).

So that leaves indoor play areas. If we toured all the splash pads in June, we’re now touring all the indoor play places in July. If you are also looking for a cool place to play, here’s a list of all the places in our area:

  • Someone told me about an indoor playground at the First Baptist Church in Covington. Do you know anything about it?

    • Hi Jennifer! I’m pretty sure they have something but I’m not sure if it’s open to the public the way Church of The King’s tubes are. I’ll reach out to a parishioner I know there and see if I can find anything out.
