If there’s a brutally cold or rainy day during the week off school, there are a few indoor entertainment centers that offer some fun along the lines of arcade games, laser tag and more. However, Sky Zone is a spot that will keep them moving from the time they walk in the door. If you want to wear out a car full of kids, this is the place to do it. Play ultimate dodgeball or jump into the foam zone.
If that’s not enough fun for one day or you are looking for some activities well-suited for younger ones, Bellaboo’s offers tons of fun with hands-on activities and there’s a Spring Break “Seaside” Staycation planned where kids can pretend to be out at the beach. Also the new Dino Dig opens on March 21 with an indoor digging experience.
Plan an overnighter
If you want to add in a little getaway that isn’t too far, consider an overnighter or a couple days in Indianapolis, which is full of attractions for all ages, from a top-notch zoo to sporting venues to museums to historical landmarks.
The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis is a perfect spring break attraction. In addition to favorite permanent exhibits, there are several temporary exhibits that will be there during spring break that will be gone in the coming weeks or months. “Alien Worlds and Androids” is an interactive exhibit covering science fiction movies and TV and how they can inspire real life science. Everyone will love the Chocolate Slide in a Willy-Wonka inspired wonderland in the museum’s atrium. Kids can zoom down a 47-foot slide themed like a river of chocolate.
There are also several exhibits dedicated to fictional characters and creatures along with some performances. “Pirates and Princesses: Storybook Adventures,” “Nickelodeon’s Teenager Mutant Ninja Turtles: Secrets of the Sewer,” “The True Story of the Three Little Pigs” and “Fables Across Time: Kalila and Dimna” are on display through early April or later.
