Getting the kids outside and away from phones and game systems is challenging enough when the weather is perfect—forget about it in the rain. Fortunately, Mesquite has parents covered. Kids Empire is the kind of place that makes parents jealous: “Where was this when we were kids?” they say. In this massive indoor playground, kids of all ages can bounce, climb, slide, drive, play, and tire themselves out much to the adult’s delight. There’s even a toddler’s area that your little ones can have all to themselves.
At Urban Air, there are trampolines everywhere—the floor, the walls, everywhere but the ceiling. If that doesn't sound like fun, they also sport an obstacle course, climbing walls, dodgeball, bumper cars, battle beams over a foam pit, a ropes course, a warrior course, and other attractions. Kids are so lucky these days. Aim High is another facility that features bounce houses, climbing structures and arcade games. Celebration Station is another fun-filled way to spend a day. This adventure center features laser tag and arcade games inside if it’s raining. When it clears up, you can enjoy the batting cages, bumper boats, go-karts, mini-golf, and an epic paintball course outside.
Just because the sun might not be out, this list shows that the fun and adventure doesn’t have to end. Besides, you know what they say about the weather in Texas: wait five minutes, and it’ll be over. Armed with this list, any visitor can have days of fun, rain or shine.
