We recently visited the Mountain Play Lodge in Asheville, North Carolina and I thought I’d share some pictures of what to expect! This is an indoor play space geared at ages 9ish and under (in my opinion) and it’s a fun way to blow off steam when the weather is dicey. My kids had a great time and I could’ve brought my computer to get some work done because they were playing so happily!

This is out front, there is lots of private parking and the Mountain Play Lodge is easy to find. They do have some gifty type stuff out front by the register, so prep your kids if you plan on not buying anything. You have to bring socks, but they have some to buy if you forget! Adults get in free, kids are charged according to age but admission is all day so you can come and go if you want.
They prohibit outside food & drink which is a shame because their options leave a lot to be desired. We have food dye allergies and had very, very few options; we ended up with a muffin.
There was plenty of seating for adults, not maybe outlets that I saw if you’re planning to plug in. There was a water fountain but it was broken, clean bathrooms including one family/all gender option. They also have rooms for parties, which we didn’t check out.
The main floor is gated off once you pay to get in and then there are two main areas. The toddler area is also gated off and smaller, then the main area that you can see above.
This is also a part of the main area, with fun imaginative buildings and climbing toys.
This is the smaller child area, for 2 and unders.
We will definitely eat before we come next time, but the kids burned lots of energy and we will be back on the next cold and windy day!
