INNERACTIVE PLAYGROUND

MINNETONKA, MN
VISIT WEBSITE

It’s here again. The cold weather. I keep waiting for the year when it takes the season off, but that has yet to happen. And until it does, I’m going to have to keep digging in to find indoor options where my kids can burn the same amount of energy they would during a neighborhood park kickball game. So when I heard about the new InnerActive Playground in Minnetonka, it took me mere days to get the kids out of the house and through their door. With three kids spanning the gamut of seven years, this place was a goldmine for our family. Pay, play, and stay all day!   Mom = 1. Cold weather = 0.

What is it?

InnerActive is an 18,000 square foot climate-controlled indoor play place off Hwy 494 and 394 in Minnetonka. The owners are a wonderfully-hospitable couple with two young boys of their own who, like many of us west-siders, were desperate for a large but simple and self-serving play area that would satisfy kids of all ages and be available through all four of Minnesota’s beautiful seasons. And one year after they snatched up this perfect indoor space, they opened the doors to one of our new favorite indoor play areas in the metro. After purchasing your admission online, simply plug your code into the secure pin pad, toss your bags in a cubby and let the kids run free!

The space prides itself on its cleanliness, security and creativity (yay, parents!) and holds a full-sized basketball court and soccer field, a large kangaroo jumper, separate playgrounds for bigger kids and toddlers, and an area with soft building blocks (yay, kids!). Bring in your fancy coffee and enjoy a full day of…dare I say…relaxation from a table that offers a clear line of vision to nearly all sections of the play space. They won’t get bored and you won’t get stressed. Win-win!

Fit for what ages?

This is exactly what I love about this place – it’s great for ALL ages! My barely-teetering 1-year old loved the toddler playground and the blocks area (although part of me wishes we didn’t have to pay the full $9 for a 12-month old, but whatever). He even enjoyed sitting on the lowest edge of the jumping pillow (although it looked like his head was going to fall off). My 4- and 7-year olds loved EVERYthing! They sprinted from the playground to the blocks to the jumper to the sports courts. I even challenged my 7-year old and a bunch of young boys to a full-on game of soccer (of which I lost…quite terribly) and had a blast. So, moms and dads, get out there and play and jump too! Nothing saying you can’t participate.

The toddler playground is walled off and intended for kids ages 0-5, although nothing necessarily enforces that. There are soft mats at the base of the slides in the toddler area because they do slip and move fast, so it is a nice thought to save tears and pain on littler butts. Bigger kids tended to frighten my kids on the kangaroo jumper, so just keep an eye on younger ones over there. It can bounce really high if a herd of 10-year olds is hopping around on it! Same goes for the sports courts – they have tons of balls of all different sizes and hardness and the last thing you want is for some middler schooler to kick a soccer ball in your toddler’s face. See Tips section about times to go that gear more towards the younger age group.

The floors are all a semi-soft turf-like material, so letting the baby crawl around gave me no anxiety at all. There’s no stairs, no obstacles and no mess (assuming everyone cleans up after themselves as they are supposed to), so he just felt so free and independent here, which he absolutely loved! And they have a quiet and warm nursing room, so no worries for mom if there’s an infant along.

How much are we talkin’?

Admission to the playground is $9.00/kid (ages 1-17 must pay) for a day pass. Babies under 12 months are free as are the accompanying adults. What’s nice about it, and unique from what I’ve seen elsewhere, is they offer a monthly membership option in addition to an annual membership. Monthly memberships are $21 for one kid and go up incrementally by child. Annual memberships start at $168 and increase on a sliding scale.

When you purchase your day pass online, do it ON THE DAY you plan to play and you will receive a 4-digit code to enter the secured door on-site. That code will get you in all day long, so you can come and go as you please. If you forget to order online before you arrive, there is a computer in the lobby area or you can access and pay from your phone. You can also bring change for the vending machine for a treat or drink.

Birthday parties are offered at InnerActive in their special party room. The room rental is $50 for two hours and then it’s $9/child (with a minimum of 8 children) and can accommodate up to 30 people. If you think about it compared to many other places similar to this, that’s a pretty good deal! Plus you can bring in your own cake and food and drink, keeping it as cheap or expensive as you’d like.

Want some tips?

The general stuff you need to know: Purchase your day passes ON THE DAY you plan to visit. The code you receive online will be good for the entire day and you can come and go as you please. Cameras are set up, so don’t be a jerk and pay for only one kid when you really have two. The owners are trying to make a living here…just be honest and kind, ok? A code can also be purchased from a lobby area computer before entering, so no need to do it before arrival, although it’ll save you time. The entrance and exit are not the same! Please use the main entrance to come in, but follow the Exit signs when leaving. Just keeps the security in tact.

All the bathrooms are right up front. There are men’s and women’s, as well as a family room with changing tables. There’s also a newly-added, quiet and heated nursing room with rocking chairs and a door for privacy.

Tons of cubbies line the lobby walls as well as a small coat rack. Shoes CAN be worn throughout the entire play space, but must be removed on the jumping pillow. This pillow requires SOCKS (not shoes or bare feet). No socks are available for purchase on-site, so don’t forget them on the day of your visit.

inneractive

The best part for this mom was the fact that you could bring in your own food and drink and enjoy in the dining area. Then, when the kids are done and say, “Can we go play?” you can say, “YES!” because there is a great line of vision from the tables, allowing you to view almost all play areas thanks to the half-walls separating each section. Forgot a lunch? They do have cash-only vending machines (but no change machine) with some snacks and drinks available. When you’re done eating, it is YOUR job to clean up after yourself. They are kind enough to have cleaning spray, paper towels, brooms, and a kitchen sink available for your use. So just treat it like you would your own kitchen and make it presentable and tidy for the next family. Sanitizer is available for your use in various spots around the playground.

Don’t be afraid to bring really little ones to InnerActive. There are TONS of high chairs for use, soft ground, padded poles, and plenty of room to crawl around freely. Plus the blocks area is fun for them since the blocks are relatively soft and can’t cause too much injury. The pillow jumper definitely tends to host the most rambunctious children, so I wouldn’t send a toddler up there without me close by. Big kids love this jumper (and why wouldn’t they?) but just know that this feature is the busiest and most popular, but also can be the cause of the most tears. Use common sense (no flips, somersaults or crazy wrestling moves) and just be cautious of other children. Adults can enjoy the jumper as well. I know I did.

inneractive

Speaking of age differences, young kids seem to dominate this place before 10am. The afternoons after 12:30 are soooo quiet (thank you, universal nap time). And bigger kids tend to run the place after dinner hours.

The party room is pretty, the wall colors are bright, and the big windows allow plenty of sunlight in to keep it from feeling dark and dreary. I heard one mom mention that it might be nice to have some kid music playing overhead, but I disagreed. Quiet time is a rare thing. I get enough Raffi in my car.

Finally – and I’m not just saying this – if you get a chance, talk to the owners. They were so unbelievably welcoming and kind and genuinely seemed to care about their business and the families it brings in. You can’t say that about every business, so when it’s legit, it’s totally worth mentioning.

    This place looks like fun! The number one reason we need to get out of the house isn is because my three year old loves to be active – he doesn’t care for the iPad or regular toys and he doesn’t have “his shows” that he likes to watch. This kid loves good old fashioned climbing, running, and jumping! So cold weather can be a challenge for us!

    Plain and simple. 3 kids who are all over the age range and on autism spectrum. Tired of finding play locations where I have to pick which kids to watch. Do I pick my oldests and make youngest not play or do I risk them running out?

    #1 reason why I need this pass- our family just welcomed a baby girl into the family on Nov 15. I need easy destinations to get out of the house and to entertain my 4 year old for hers and my sanity. We love other indoor playgrounds, but they’re far away. This would be perfect!

    I have two young boys and they play nice for a little while but then they just start annoying each other. Then it’s screaming, yelling, punching and biting. They really do love each other but they have different interests and play levels at this time and need to be able to play independently. In the winter that gets hard being stuck together in the house.

  • Jen B
    11/22/2016 at 10:44 am

    I am a stay at home mom but I help a couple friends out during the week and watch their kiddos. It’s a plus for everyone!!! I get to stay home with my daughter, they get child care from someone they know and trust! I always feel bad asking them to pay for extra outings, so I usually eat up the cost. I do have various memberships to other places around town but This Membership would allow me to get out and let them RUN this winter. The children’s museum is our usual go to place but with it closing for a bit, I’m already having anxiety about how this winter will go!!! We visited InnerActive when they opened and LOVED it.!! This would be so fun this winter!!

  • Kristy ukwaththa
    11/22/2016 at 10:50 am

    My #1 reason is because I like to keep my kids active in the winter instead of turning the TV on! There’s only so much you can do at home in the winter. I have an active 2 and 4 year old and we are excited to try this new place out. We were sad that play and learn cafe closed!

    An active three year old of my own plus two boys that I babysit (ages 2 and 4) cooped up inside all day = bad news. We all go stir crazy! And sometimes it’s just too much work to get them all bundled up to play outside. Or it’s too cold to play outside at all. This sounds like a fantastic place for them to burn energy during the cold months! Thanks for sharing. I didn’t even know it was there!

    I need to get my two kiddos out of the house on Saturdays in the winter because my CPA husband is busy working and is otherwise bothered with “daddy, can i touch your computer?” and “can i touch that button?” For both our sanity’s, we need to get out of the house!

    Can’t wait to try this place out! My number 1 reason for getting out of the house is my two boys need to climb, jump, and run or things start getting broken around the house. They get creative on how to exert their energy and this mama does not always have the energy for an ER visit 😉

    The #1 reason to get out of the house in the winter…if my boys don’t get enough physical activity, they won’t be tired at bedtime! And a late bedtime means no time to snuggle on the couch by the fire with a glass of wine!!!

    11/22/2016 at 1:49 pm

    11/22/2016 at 5:12 pm

    Id love this because my son has sooooo much energy, (and I can only take the cold for so long before the white flag is flying, so all day sledding is out)! Plus, kiddo #2 is due in January, and I’d love to still have something fun for us to do together!

  • Amy
    11/22/2016 at 5:29 pm

    Reason #1: Because weather shouldn’t dictate whether we play inside or outside, but Inneractive makes the cold weather a non-issue!

    Love my busy boys, but I’m going to lose my hearing if we don’t get out. They somehow get louder and louder and louder as they play. I enjoy every minute but I’ve started to realize I should invest in ear plugs

    To see my little boys smile and contagious laugh!!! Also so everyone’s mental and physical health during these brutal winters. Cabin fever anyone??

    My number one reason? I have 4 kids under 4, and if we don’t get out during the day to burn some energy, someone’s liable to be in tears by the end of the day (and it could very possibly be me!)

    Small house with cooped up kids is not a god combo. This place sounds great!

    We went to three parks every day this summer and fall… If we were indoors too long, she’d go to the front door and yell, “park!” So we will definitely be checking this out.

    The number 1 reason we need to get out of the house in the winter is to stay sane! We all need a chafe of scenery & fun things to do! This place would do just that!

    We need to get out of the house because exploring new places helps my son grow. He is on the Autusm Spectrum and social connection is important to maintain during those cold months when outside playdates don’t happen as often!

    My kids sleep so much better when they’re active throughout the day. We went there this Saturday and they were exhausted when we got home. No protests at bedtime!!

    We need to get out of the house so there are fewer tornadoes leaving behind a playroom that has exploded with toys.

    Thanks for the great review. I can’t wait to visit this new indoor facility. The #1 reason I need to get out of the house this winter is that I have a newborn (3 weeks old) as well as a 3-year old to keep busy on my maternity leave over the next few months!

  • Stephanie

    My number 1 reason would be I have 2 boys ages 5 and 2. My 5 year old has had some OT the last year and this would be a great place for him to get some of his energy out and work on some of his OT.

    #1 reason to get out of the house in winter: CABIN FEVER. Everyone, not just kids, need a change of scenery once in a while! If we are stuck inside alll the time my kids sleep schedule is changing and we are getting moody…

  • Teresa

    I look forward to trying this place out! My son NEVER sits still and we need to get out because this house seems to get smaller in the winter.

    This looks amazing! I have 3 active kids ages 9, 6, & 3 & we need to get out of the house because our town home is all on the second floor and they can’t really get their energy out at home because it’s too loud for our neighbor below. And we homeschool, so I need to provide them with adequate opportunities to get their wiggles out or we all go crazy.

  • Amber

    This space looks amazing. We need to get out of the house because my kids are always wanting to eat when we are at home. It’s a constant “What else can I have?” and it drives me insane!

    Endless amounts of energy cooped up in a house during these sub-zero winter days usually end up with something in our house getting broken so having an indoor play area available to help burn some of that energy is so wonderful for us young families!

    We need to get out of the house because I don’t want my toddler asking for the Ipad constantly.

    My number 1 reason for needing to get out of the house is my son is active and LOVES to explore. He loves to chase our dog. He is starting to climb on things and it’s only a matter of time before he starts jumping off the couch. We need to take him to places where it’s safe to explore and get his energy out.

    This review is great! I love all of the photos; really helps me understand the space – and makes me a lot more willing to go! The #1 reason I need to get out of the house in the winter is because my babe is too little to play outside in the snow and slush (he’s a toddler, and a tottery one at that) – so having a safe place to play in a new environment would be AMAZING!

  • Rachel
    11/23/2016 at 8:26 pm

    Well mine would copy your reason! However, to change it up a bit, I will just say to keep me sane. And the kiddos too!!

  • Amanda Engel
    11/23/2016 at 10:24 pm

    I need to get out in the winter because my two year old boy is a whole new kind of wild compared to
    my daughter at his age! Yikes! Jumping, climbing and diving are his areas of expertise!

  • Laura

    We just moved here from sunny Southern California where we could go outside to playgrounds all year round. A little worried about a cold winter and I have to get the kids and me out of the house if we are going to survive.

    Love this review – thank you! I need to get my boys out of the house to save my furniture! If they can’t get their wiggles out elsewhere, my living room becomes their own personal ninja warrior course!

    I hate the cold weather! Anything that is indoors and they can run wild to get their energy out I am all for! Plus i love that it is open in the late evening and isn’t to far from us.

    I’d love to be entered into the membership giveaway. My number one reason to get out of the house is that my 18-month old is extremely active and busy all day long. She has such a better day (and so do I) if she gets some outlet to play outside of the house.
