Any indoor playground-type places in Maine?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I am looking for some indoor fun. I have an 11 month old (crawling) and 3 yr old. We can't go to a McDonalds playplace because DS1 has multiple food allergies. But are there any sort of non-food indoor play places around?

We are in Bath, but will drive an hour or so. I would just like to go once in a while as a special treat so if it is far away that is ok..

Thanks.

Linda

too funny linda! i was just going to post about this very thing...

a friend of mine told me today that there is an indoor play place scheduled to open in the fort andross building in brunswick- in 2- 3 weeks! woohoo! but she didn't know anything about it, contact info, etc. i thought i'd post here to see if anyone knows anything about it. she was saying it would be $4 to drop in and use the space- or something like that.
of course, i don't know what the food situation would be.
but have any mainers heard about this?!
thanks.

There is the Inside Out Playground in Waterville. That's about 45 minutes from Bath.

What about the Children's Museums in Bangor and Portland? Or is that not quite what you are looking for?

It's a little dreary, but there's Joker's in Portland.

For those of us further north in Maine, there's a My Gym in Brewer. I haven't been there, but it's a nice idea for the winter.

The IOP is really nice and the kids always love it. I'd say it's worth a drive.

There's also one in the Auburn Mall -- but again, you may run into problems with the food allergies. (The pizza is pretty unappetizing, anyway. :P)

Also for Bangor area families- there is a toddler rec time from 930-1130, M-F at the Bangor Armory (next to Manna on Main St) it's free!

Indoor Play in Maine

The Children's Museum of Maine is in Portland. It even has a toddler park (which is basically a circuar, padded play area) for the little ones. For older kids there is a big firetruck, fake milking-cow, pretend shopping mart, and a bunch of other things upstairs.
Usually libraries offer reading circles also.
Oh, and although I do not generally like eating fast food, there is a gigantic inside play area in the mcdonalds on st. john street in Portland.
Ah, the snow!:

Oh, and in the summer there are a lot of additional things to do, but I particularly like the wading pool for the little ones in Deering Oaks Park under the bridge (not to be confused with the duck pond)! That is always a good place to go to find other small children for my little one to gawk at
