Cincinnati & NKY guide to Indoor Play

This guide has been produced in partnership with the businesses featured below. As local moms ourselves, we are excited to bring you this resource and consider ourselves lucky to have some many amazing options for indoor play in our city!

Pogo Play

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.

Check out their newly offered on-site music classes too!

**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!
