Indoor Playgrounds For Kids

Sioux Falls is a cold place during the Winter. Where can you take your toddlers to run off some steam when it’s cold? Here are some great indoor playgrounds for the kids to enjoy when the weather doesn’t permit play outside.

The Sandlot

305 W Willow Street, Harrisburg, SD 57032

Kids can enjoy a bit of the beach year round here. The Sandlot features a giant sand pit with various sand molding toys. If sand is too messy for you, kids can visit The Splash Zone, where you’ll find giant water tables and floating toys.

Sky Zone

5129 S Solberg Ave, Sioux Falls, SD 57108

A trampoline park is the perfect place for your child to jump out that pent up energy. Sky Zone looks like it caters mainly to adults, but there is a section specifically for toddlers to enjoy.

605 Ninja

2101 W. 41st Street Suite 41 Sioux Falls, SD 57105

An open gym geared toward ages 5 to adult. Kids can run, climb, and jump around a 15,000 square feet floor filled with a wide variety of balance and climbing obstacles.


2801 S Carolyn Ave Sioux Falls, SD 57106

Yes! The popular play-set maker will let your child play in the showroom. This place has everything! Trampolines, swing sets, climbing castles, and ropes.

Sertoma Butterfly House & Aquarium

4320 S Oxbow Ave, Sioux Falls, SD 57106

Bathe in the warmth as butterflies and birds frolic around you. Relax and watch the fish. Dig and find fossils. This place is best when you can attend their events.

Empire Mall

5000 W Empire Mall, Sioux Falls, SD 57106

Sanford Health provides a free play area in Empire Mall, near Dillard’s and Camping World. It’s not as impressive as the other options here, or even the older play area they used to have at this spot, but the kids will still enjoy sliding and climbing here. There are also several pay toddler rides throughout the mall.

Great Plains Zoo

805 S Kiwanis Ave, Sioux Falls, SD 57104

Even when it’s too cold to see the animals outside, the zoo has a large indoor area with animal exhibits. There is even a tiny playground for toddlers at the rear of the building.

Kirby Science Discovery Center @ Washington Pavilion

301 S. Main Ave. Sioux Falls, SD 57104

I never knew Washington Pavilion had such great science exhibits for kids! Their “Room to Grow” area is made for kids 7 and under, and will keep your kid occupied for hours.

Sioux Falls Community Centers

Sioux Falls offers several indoor playing areas at their community centers.

Have a look at the schedules for each location to see when they have indoor play time. They offer open gym and play group types of events.

    The Old Courthouse Museum is a nice place when they have certain exhibits. Also Midco Aquatic Center!
