Indoor play comes in many forms, from classic indoor playgrounds using soft play equipment, tunnels, obstacle courses, and ball pits, to indoor adventure parks with indoor go-karting, mini-golf, and more.

In this guide, I’ve highlighted over 30 indoor play spaces, including museums, arcades, trampoline parks, and all types of indoor play areas in Raleigh and the surrounding towns. You’ll find all the essential info here, like pricing, location, and hours, plus links to our own detailed reviews for the places we’ve been.
