Indoor Winter Entertainment Spots For Kids

It’s that time of the year where the leaves turn brown, the days become shorter and the cold sets in. This gives kids (and parents) the opportunity to experience some awesome indoor activities at some of the coolest kid-friendly entertainment venues in town.



An entire warehouse filled with trampolines and foam pits? Now THAT sounds like a lot of fun. Bounce Inc, in Midrand, offers children from age three and up one hour sessions of jumping fun under the supervision of trained athletes.

City Rock

Fancy some mountain climbing within the safety and comfort of a suburban setting? City Rock offers junior rock climbing courses (ages five to 14) to teach little ones how to do rock climbing. The venue also offers climbing sessions, complete with safety equipment.

Gomes Zone

Looking for entertainment for all age groups, then Gomes Zone is the place to be. From a state of the art modular play gym, fantasy play area, arts and crafts, gaming section offering foosball, table tennis, pool table and Playstation… they have it all to keep everyone entertained. Plus, Gomes Zone also has a coffee shop for the parents’ enjoyment.

Roll Egoli

Roll Egoli came about as a result of a lack of safe skating facilities for suburban Johannesburg folks. The super smooth cement floor rink is located on a residential stand in the heart of Bryanston.

The Ice Rink

Some of our fondest memories were those spent ice skating for the first time while holding mommy’s hand. Pass these memories on to your children as you take them to the Ice Rink in Northgate.

The Peartree Centre

The Peartree is an exclusive four star venue for your celebration or event: family get-together and children’s parties. Based in Craighall, the venue has a beautiful indoor dining area, undercover seating on the extensive patio as well as a sunken garden. Plus there’s ample stuff for the kids to do.

Kid’s Traffic Land

Kid’s Traffic-land is a unique and fun way for children to learn the rules of the road by getting into battery operated cars or bikes and driving on make-believe roads with traffic signs and robots.

Yeesh! Fun For Kids

If your little one is full of energy and needs to be kept busy with different activities then Yeesh! is the place to be. With play pens, jungle gyms and even a coffee bar for mom to relax at; it’s the place to be this winter.

Little Cooks Club

The Little Cooks Club Cooking Programme uses a hands-on approach to introducing children to new foods, with a view to get them to appreciate good food and a healthy diet.

Pottery Junxion

Since 2006 the Pottery Junxion has been offering the best in ceramics to Joburg. They now offer workshops for kids to learn how to let their creative side flourish by teaching them how to paint, draw and sculpt with clay. The Pottery Junxion also hosts birthday parties.
