Indoor playgrounds in Atlanta are crucial when the weather drenches, burns, or freezes the city— kids still need to play and expel energy! If you find yourself dealing with bored little ones, take them to Atlanta indoor play spaces. We've rounded up the top Atlanta indoor playgrounds for kids to wear themselves out, including on their birthdays. In most cases, families just need to sign a waiver and bring socks for kids (and sometimes adults) to wear during the visit. 


Refer to our Winter Activities Guide for Atlanta Kids to keep your little ones entertained this season. Also, sign up for the Mommy Poppins newsletter to keep up with the latest and best things to do with kids!
