Whether you need to escape the heat or a cold winter day, a trip to an indoor playground Atlanta kids love is always a hit

Brr, y’all. It doesn’t happen a lot, but when Atlanta temperatures drop we don’t take it well (even if it means we can take the kids ice skating, head out on a nearby ski trip, or tackle a weekend snow tubing adventure). Luckily for Atlanta families, there are plenty of incredible indoor playgrounds Atlanta kids flip for that get them active and warm at the same time. We’re talking cooking classes, virtual reality adventures, indoor skydiving, dramatic theatre productions, and circus arts—they’re just some of the indoor activities in Atlanta on our list. So the next time an Arctic blast hits, or the temps drop below 45-degrees, check out one of our favorite indoor playgrounds in town.

oodazu is a multi-activity and party venue for kids unlike any we have in Atlanta, offering a full yoga program for kids, scaling towers that resemble cityscapes, climbing walls, a ceiling-to-floor donut slide, virtual reality stations, a cafe offering healthy snack options, a parent's lounge for mom and dad where they can view a live feed of the yoga room, work at laptop stations, or watch TV. Two private party spaces—where you can bring in your own food and cake—are flooded with natural light and west coast-inspired decorations.

For your thrill-seekers, try a flight at iFly, Atlanta's only indoor skydiving facility. Guests as young as 3 can try soaring in the specially-designed wind tunnel, and comes with pre-flight instructions, gear (suit, goggles, helmet and earplugs)—plus the incredible experience of flying.

This trampoline park, ninja course, and rock climbing center also has Exit Reality VR X-Pods, which take users inside of their favorite game with the use of virtual reality headsets and a state-of-the-art gaming computer. Virtual experiences include over 20 options, including walking 80 floors high in the sky, drawing in space, visiting Paris, or being a Space Pirate Trainer. Jumpers can choose among designated age-group times (Toddler Time is every Friday & Saturday for $8), and they also have a cafe so you can knock lunch off your to-do list, too.

Adventure Air Sports

With a ninja warrior obstacle course that's no joke, your kiddos will be (literally) jumping off the walls on the Mad Maxx super trampoline, swinging from the rafters (with a trapeze over a foam pit), and flying high on plenty of indoor trampoline courses, as well.

The Children's Museum of Atlanta

There's no doubt about it. The Children's Museum is a smart place to play, with creative, interactive exhibits that educate as well as entertain. Kids will love driving the crane, working at a Waffle House, hitting the grocery store, and exploring the incredible climbing structure in the heart of the museum. They also provide ongoing programming throughout the day that changes as the seasons and holidays change, which means there's always something new to learn about and try.
