Indoor Recreation for Traveling Families

November 22, 2017

For traveling families, the most difficult season of the year may be winter, because of how challenging it can be to entertain kids indoors. As a parent myself, I am always on the hunt for ways to keep my child from going stir-crazy on trips. Here, in the communities of Cumberland County, we have a wide variety of indoor attractions that present great recreational options for kids, whether they be toddlers or teenagers. Be sure to add at least one of these to your family’s winter break to-do list.

Putt-Putt Fun Center

This Hope Mills attraction, conveniently located next to Millstone Towne Centre, offers much more than just putt-putt. The indoor activities include the popular Lazer Zone Laser Tag, where kids and teens love to battle each other in a multi-level laser tag arena. The Spin Zone Bumper Cars are another fun indoor attraction, while the Game Zone offers a large variety of arcade games for them to rack up points on game cards. There is plenty of activities to keep the kids entertained for hours at Putt-Putt.

Tip: Before you plan your visit, check out Putt-Putt’s website for their everyday deals and daily specials.

MegaPlay

We’re talking 6,700 square feet of room to run and play at this indoor facility in Spring Lake. MegaPlay also features a two-level structure that contains a variety of activities, like bridges, obstacles, and more. If you’re worried about the safety of little ones, there is a designated area just for toddlers that has soft play equipment, a ball pit and a soft foam slide. MegaPlay is the perfect spot to let the kids run off all their energy indoors.

Tip: Parents, feel free to take advantage of the free WiFi and grab a drink/snack in the café while the kiddies play.

Triangle Rock Club

The newest rock climbing facility to open in this area, TRC is known for its lead and top-rope climbing, fitness areas, bouldering terrain and kid-friendly environment. Every first-time visitor gets a special price on a day pass, with equipment included. After a brief facility orientation, you and the kids will be ready to grab your gear and tackle your first climb. Want to take a break and go get a bite to eat? That’s not a problem with a day pass. Families are able to stay active year-round here with adventure destinations like TRC.

Tip: Check out TRC’s website for helpful “First Time Climber” info before you visit.

Xscape Factor

Fayetteville can now boast two escape-room businesses, and Xscape Factor is relatively new to the scene, in Downtown Fayetteville. This site offers four live escape rooms to choose from—to include “Al Capone’s Revenge” and “Last Will & Testament.” Teenagers especially enjoy the challenge of hunting down clues and solving puzzles, but don’t get it wrong, adults are big fans of this mystery experience, too. Xscape Factor offers our visitors yet another way to enjoy everything our downtown has to offer.

Tip: Follow @XscapeFactorLLC to get a heads-up on their pop-up events and specials, like Sunday Funday.

Fascinate-U Children’s Museum

We can’t talk about indoor adventures here without including our children’s museum, also located in Downtown Fayetteville. This popular destination provides kids with interactive experiences that make learning fun and bring out creativity. Children especially love all the role-playing scenarios as they pretend to work in a grocery store, run a post office, dress up in costumes and more. This museum is a must-do for families with small children.

Tip: Make reservations now for the museum’s Breakfast with Santa, on December 9th, and give the kids an early Christmas present.

Plenty of other kid-friendly events are happening throughout the holiday season here, and we shared a number of those on “Find Your Family Tradition in Cumberland County.” Details on all holiday events and other happenings may be found on the Fayetteville Area Convention & Visitors Bureau’s Calendar of Events.
