There is endless fun to be had at Pogo Play! Your kids will love climbing, crawling and sliding in a massive 7600+ square foot play structure. That alone is enough to keep most kids happy, but they can also take advantage of inflatables and bounce houses, a sports court, Lego mania building area, interactive floor, Imagination Playground, and dramatic play space. There is even a special room for the littlest members of your family with engaging play equipment that is perfectly toddler sized. Then when you work up an appetite you can take advantage of the yummy cafe for lunch, snacks and more.
**Mom Bonus** They have some awesome parent seating and free wi-fi which makes it a perfect place to catch up with friends or get some work done while the kiddos play.
Don’t forget to bring your socks!
Goldfish Swim School
If you’re looking for something out of the ordinary to do as a family, try the fun Family Swim. Family Swim is a great way for children and their families to spend an afternoon or evening together in a shiver-free 90-degree pool. Even better, children can put into practice everything they’ve learned from their swim lessons.
If you’re new to Goldfish, Family Swim is a great way to get a taste of the experience with the whole family!
**Mom Bonus** The amenities here are so amazing. Family friendly dressing rooms for changing, a blow dry bar and more make it so easy to dry off before you head home with your happy, tired kids.
90 degree family fun all year long!
The Red Balloon Cafe + Play
The playspace is custom designed for open-ended fun! Stuff to climb on, stuff to push, pull and ride on, places to get creative and imagine, and most of all fun and friends! The space is designed for children 1-6 years old (under 1 is free!) older children with gentle attitudes are allowed, but parents are asked to use their best judgement.
Go to play and stay to eat. The food is made from scratch in house, using the freshest ingredients available and is organic and locally sourced when possible. Offerings change daily.
**Mom Bonus** The Red Balloon Cafe + Play is also a a hub for babywearing and cloth diapering gear and wisdom. They offer classes and groups where you can try out different types of carriers before you buy.
The WEB is the perfect place for a local family who wants to do it all! They have laser tag, go karts, mini golf, mini bowling, an augmented climbing wall, and an escape room. PLUS a huge arcade and awesome prizes. With a great Rewards Program and Daily Specials, they make family time fun AND affordable.
You can find several fun options that you won’t find anywhere else in Cincinnati, including the augmented reality climbing wall, indoor electric go-kart track and the longest running (and most challenging) Cincinnati laser tag business around.
