Calgary Indoor Playgrounds

Calgary's Indoor Play Places

There are a ton of different options for Calgary indoor playgrounds. The current trend is towards large play centre that will entertain a large age range.

More than any other topic I cover, the comments on Calgary indoor playgrounds can sometimes get a bit heated – for any play place some people will love it and others will find it disappointing.

When I write my reviews, I try to keep in mind that each indoor playground is different and none is the right fit for everyone.

Organized by area, here are short reviews on each of Calgary’s indoor play grounds to help you find the one that’s right for your family.

Calgary Indoor Playgrounds

1. The Big Box

2. Hide N Seek 
Reopened June 14, 2021

One of Calgary’s largest indoor play places. It features a huge indoor climber with tons of slides and special features, redemption games, and toddler areas.

This is a great space for bigger kids and younger kids but it is a big space and can be challenging if you have younger kids that don’t want to stay together or a young kid who wants to go up the big climber when you do not. They have a full service cafe with lots of options.

3. Treehouse Indoor Playground

Now reopened 2021
Treehouse is located in the NE just North of 32nd avenue. They cater to kids 12 and under. They offer a huge climber, bouncy castle, baby room, toy room, animal riders, backyard blasters, x-box area, climbing wall, interactive mat and arcade games.

It is great for bigger kids and has a nice space for babies and toddlers but it is large and can be challenging to keep track of kids of different ages. They offer ready to eat snacks and sandwiches as well as hot items like hot dogs and pizza.

10. LOL Entertainment (Previously Fun N More)

No reopening date listed – I believe they have permanently closed
This play place reopened under new management and with a new name at the end of 2017. From the photos I’ve seen it is very similar to what Fun N More used to be. (You can see our review of Fun N More here to get an idea)

Now reopened 2021
Treehouse’s new South location can be found in Midnapore and caters to kids 12 and under. They offer a huge indoor play structure, arcade, interactive floor, animal riders, toddler zone and trampoline.

It is great for bigger kids and has a nice space for babies and toddlers but it is large and can be challenging to keep track of kids of different ages. They offer ready to eat snacks and sandwiches as well as hot items like hot dogs and pizza.

This occurs extremely rarely.  If you have a bad experience at a play place, I encourage you to e-mail the owners with your complaint.

  1. Can you do a review of the new play centre that opened in place of the Fun and More that closed down? From what I can see from Macleod Trail it’s called, LOL play or something similar, and it seems to be in the same spot except I can’t find a website to look into it.
