Looking for somewhere to let loose and play with your child? These creative experiences from the Family Entertainment Directory in the March 2022 issue of Baltimore’s Child will keep your children and teens active.

A safari-themed indoor playground, Hyper Kidz Baltimore has age-specific features that range from birth to age 13. Families will find more than just trampolines and inflatable bounce houses. Children can climb and play on multi-level structures, shake it out on an interactive LED dance floor,  explore giant pin screens and have fun with party rooms and special events. Additional location in Columbia

Clark’s Elioak Farm will be open for spring fun come April. Take your children on a pony ride or cow train ride and share a little bit of nostalgia with them as you explore storybook Enchanted Forest figures dating back to the 1950s. The farm will have Easter egg hunts on April 9 and April 18.

Designed as a loving tribute to Ryan Szczybor, who died of leukemia, Angel Park includes an inclusive playground, amphitheater and pavilion.  Look out for special events throughout the seasons.

Laser tag combines strategic thinking, movement and teamwork. Practice stealth in the shadows as you plan your takedown. Shadowland has a number of adventures to choose from, along with glow golf and arcade games.

The Y in Central Maryland offers many options to play together as a family, including youth and adult sports, rock walls and special features such as a family gym and family swim and free supervised activity room for kids ages 6 weeks to 10 years.
