Families in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn have a fantastic new indoor playground to explore. Flying Apple debuted last fall and features swings, soft ball pits, obstacle courses, illuminated slides, and games. It's a great option on bad weather days when your kids need to run around and expend some energy.

We recently visited Flying Apple on a rainy afternoon and the kids had so much fun. Read on to get all the details about this new indoor playground, which has already earned its spot on our list of top indoor play spaces in Brooklyn.

Why Flying Apple Is Worth a Visit

Flying Apple New York is a sprawling indoor playground for kids ages 1-10. The owners of Flying Apple started the play space after realizing there was a shortage of indoor play options for this age group in the neighborhood.

The atmosphere of Flying Apple is cozy, playful, and bright. The entire facility is padded and the multi-level jungle gym is netted, so even the smallest kids can romp safely. My kids loved playing with the ball blasters, racing down the slides, diving into the ball pits, and tackling the obstacle courses. The playground also features swings, tunnels, arcade games, puzzles, and climbing walls.

There are plenty of creature comforts for caregivers, too, such as massage chairs and FREE snacks.

Open play is available daily, with prices starting at $22 on weekdays and $30 on weekends. Kids ages 3 and under pay just $16, and all prices include admission for one adult per child.

If you've got a celebration coming up, take note: There is a room off to the side of the playground for birthday parties, which includes a separate entrance. Flying Apple is also planning to host classes in the coming months.
