5 Family Activities Indoors

Sunset in Kansas City

The weather seems to be warming up and then cooling back down every other day. With the sun playing hide and seek with the city, your kids want to play as well, but it is just too cold outside to do anything! Here are five indoor activities the whole family is sure to enjoy!

1. Indoor Water ParkCoCo-Key-2

Stay warm indoors with CoCo Keys Water Resort as you await summer’s return! If you live on the west side, you can check out Great Wolf Lodge. Both you can spend hours at or even days and also come with multiple pool’s for all sizes and adult-only whirlpools at each. If you are looking for somewhere a bit more low-key and still pool side, check out our list of indoor pools below to either relax or workout a bit!

Legacy Park Community Center in Lee’s Summit

Kansas City’s newest attraction in Overland Park is iFly, an indoor skydiving place! It incorporates the feeling of free falling within a protected area. Kids can even try it! Don’t worry adults, there is an instructor in there at all times helping whomever is flying. This attraction is extremely popular so schedule very well in advance.

3. Science CitySC-4

Science City at Union Station is always an amazing place to take the kiddos during anytime of year. A great learning experience and a place where your kids can even learn why the weather is so cold outside. They can bike on a tight-rope across the area, dig for dinosaurs or even have a massive game of tug-of-war!

4. Jaegerz Lazer Tagjaegerz-laser-tag7.jpg

With the weather in mood swings, you and your moody kids can take out their happy and angry selves to Jaegerz Lazer Tag for an all out shootout! What’s even cooler is that it is in the limestone caves right north of World’s of Fun. The 6,000 square foot facility is hosts even paintball and parties, so call and make a reservation!

5. Legoland Discovery Centertn_img_444

Always a fun day to take either rain or shine, or even freezing cold, is a day out to Legoland Discovery Center. Feed your inner architect, and of course your children’s, down at Crown Center. Play and create to your heart’s content or hang around in one of the Master Builder classes for some serious instruction. No one will care if you’re the oldest kid in the class.
