Is your favorite NJ indoor play area missing on our list?

It probably is. We just started to focus on some rainy day destinations and want to improve what we have on our site. We already have an Indoor Playgrounds section but would like to beef it up.

Update- Mcdonalds is doing away with playlands in 2023- so unfortunately that won’t be a part of the indoor places to play. Feel free to comment of any playland that you know of!

Here is a list of some of our favorites and a map to go with it. We started including some local McDonalds Playlands. There’s plenty of McDonalds that show up on your GPS but not all of them have playlands. We would appreciate your comments on Indoor Places you like to go. We want to make this a list built by NJ parents! Comment below, let us know where you like to go. Would you like to guest post a new place? We encourage reviews from parents, and will post them.

For nostalgia- here are the prices from long ago –  The only ones that are still in existence are

Imagine That, Trailside, Jersey Gardens. So sad to see good places leave us.  Make sure you support your local playplace 🙂
