When the weather cools off and sending your kids outdoors to play is no longer an option, we have the solution: games and entertainment centres.

Located throughout the city, these entertainment headquarters keep your children occupied (and parents sane) by offering countless activities under one roof. From bowling and arcades to trampolines and go-karts, check out our top four favourite games and entertainment centres in Mississauga.

Playtown

Focusing on intellectual and physical growth, Playtown is an interactive play centre where children are encouraged to create, interact and use their imagination while having fun. Parental involvement is encouraged while children maneuver around a series of playhouses. Two of them include Playtown House, a space where children can pretend to look after a baby and cook dinner and Fire Station, where children don firefighter outfits to douse imaginary fires.

Toddlers find themselves amused in Toddler Town, a safe area designed for children aged newborn to walking.

Sky Zone Mississauga 

Reputed to be the #1 indoor trampoline park, Sky Zone Mississauga is part of a chain that offers freestyle bouncing, dodgeball, fitness programs and more. Awesome, healthy fun is encouraged while family members of all ages enjoy a great, thrill-seeking workout. This ultimate 3-D play experience includes a pit filled with 10,000 foam cubes and a warrior course.

Dedicated to providing a safe environment, Sky Zone Mississauga has a special time reserved for toddlers.

Playdium Amusement Centre 

Located inside Square One Shopping Centre is Playdium Amusement Centre, a huge, 40,000 indoor square foot complex and 11-acre outdoor complex featuring more than 200 video games, rides and simulators, mini-golf, and go-karts. This family entertainment centre offers plenty of interactive, virtual and physical opportunities to keep the kids busy including the XD Dark Ride, a 3D movie, multi-sensory experience.

When the kids run out of energy, have them fuel up at one of the on-site eateries including Playdium’s Theatre Style Concession.
