UPDATE December 2016: Since publication, KidVenture has closed.
KidVenture recently opened its doors in Madison with a much larger play space, comfortable seating area for adults, a classroom, and a private party area. (There are also large mens and womens bathrooms—a bonus from what they had at their last location!)
You will see your old favorites there—the big pirate ship, the play house, and a nice gated area for babies up to age two. But there is so much more since they’ve doubled their size! There are two large inflatables, a tire swing, a kid-powered train on tracks, two air hockey tables, lots of things that spin or can be climbed on, and much more.
Their classroom can be rented, but it is free to moms clubs and nonprofit organizations. They also offer several birthday party packages.
KidVenture is an indoor play area located at 500 Lanier Road, Suite D, behind the Wal-Mart on Madison Boulevard. They have walk-in play hours seven days a week, and they are sure to entertain kids ages 0 to 10! With your admission fee, you can stay as long as you like and even leave and come back on the same day which is great if you need to take the kids to lunch or home for a nap.
Location: 500 Lanier Road, Ste. D, Madison, AL 35758
Admission: $9.50 plus tax for walkers and up. Adults are free.
