This amusement park has over 35 features, including Dora’s Sky Railway, the Rugrats Reptar Go-Round, the world's steepest roller coaster, PAW Patrol Adventure Bay, a nine-story ropes course and so, so, so much more!

New York City is awash with playgrounds and other outdoor activities where kids can burn off energy. But when the weather isn’t cooperating, where do you go? Of all the amazing indoor activities for kids, there’s nothing quite like indoor amusement parks for year-round family fun whatever the weather.
Kids (and, admit it, you too) will love mini golf, arcade games, slamming into each other with bumper cars and running around with their fave cartoon characters. They’re sure to be worn out after all that madness.
For more family-friendly fun that can be had indoors, check out the best indoor water parks near the city, the best museums for kids or the best kid-friendly cooking classes. Once playtime is over, treat the family to a meal at these family-friendly restaurants, then treat yourself to a cocktail at one of NYC’s best bars.
