Our summers can get pretty hot, and sometimes pretty rainy. So when the weather is keeping you in doors this Summer, check out these indoor activities to keep the kiddos busy!
Indoor Activities for Families in Birmingham
Autobahn Indoor Speedway – If you’re feeling the need for a little speed check out European-style indoor go-karting at Autobahn Indoor Speedway.
Birmingham Museum of Art – Bart the Art Bat has come up with tons of fun things for kids and adults to do together! Explore, discover, and create art with Bart the Art Bat, the Museum’s fun and funky mascot! For tips on visiting with kids, visit their site.
Riverchase Galleria – I know what you’re thinking, you would probably rather be dragged through the muddy playground by your messy bun than take your kids to the mall, but hear me out… You’re not going on a shopping spree, you’re going to play and stay out of the rain. Another spot with covered parking (yah!), you can grab lunch in the food court and let the kiddos ride the carousel. If you’re looking for some more prolonged fun, you can hit up Build-A-Bear or check out Bumper Nets!
Treetop Adventure – Kidzone, Animal Trax, Arcade, Bowling and Laser Tag all under one roof! Make sure to check Groupon before you go, they run deals regularly.
Trussville Playstation and Skates 280 are great for roller skating, and arcade games.
Indoor Play Places – Urban Air, Surge Trampoline Park, Skyzone, Pump it up, Let’s Play in Inverness and now Hoover, and of course the McWane Science Center. McWane has lots to do year round, for all ages, have you checked out Itty Bitty Magic City for the littles? You can even catch a movie in IMAX, and BONUS… They have covered parking which means no having to juggle the kids, the stroller and umbrella! Everyone stays dry and the car stays out of the summer sun.
Climb – Try First Avenue Rocks /Birmingham Boulders for a little rock climbing fun. They even offer an after school Climbing Team program for children ages 8-14. Also, make sure to check out the Kid Zone at Highpoint Climbing and Fitness
Laser Tag – If Laser tag is your game, try Ultra Blast Laser Combat Center off of 280 or Game Zone Laser Tag in Pelham.
