Fun Family Indoor Destinations in Richardson


Finding ways to enjoy quality time with the family is hard. When winter weather dampens the spirit and takes away outdoor activities, you need to have an alternative plan in place. Even in North Texas, it’s difficult to navigate outdoor activities throughout the winter, so it’s important to have an arsenal of ideas that keep the family engaged while indoors.
If you’re ready to get out of the house for good, wholesome fun, check out some of these places in and around Richardson to find family friendly activities and events.

Thunderbird Roller Rink

Thunderbird Roller Rink is an icon in Plano, in operation for 48 years. While the facility is well maintained for safety and enjoyment, the retro feel or the early days of roller rinks remains. Go to an open skate night or plan a party with your family and friends.


At NickelRama, teach your children about old-fashioned arcade fun. Here, you can play video games with real nickels, not just preloaded cards. Game play is a nickel per quarter that it would regularly charge, with everything from ticket games to video games, as well as simulators, air hockey, pinball, and updated classics.

Richardson Public Library

The Richardson Public Library not only offers a huge array of books (including a digital library) but also events for all ages. Storytime for various ages, ranging from infant to toddler and beyond, are enjoyable, or take part in a write-in or join the book clubs. There are even specialty holiday events you can attend.

Altitude Trampoline Park

If your kids like to bounce off the walls – literally – a session at Altitude Trampoline Park could be in order. There’s trampoline basketball, a gymnastic tumble track, a trapeze swing, a foam pit, and much more to keep you and the kids entertained until they’re falling asleep on their feet!

Free Play Arcade

If you miss ‘old school arcades’, look no further than Free Play Arcade. They have retro arcade games like Pac-Man and Space Invaders, as well as pinball machines. Play what you want, as long as you want, for one entrance fee. Note that, while family-friendly, there are regulations to late hours and children.
