  1. It’s back to school time and the weather will be changing! Visit The Family Room for all your indoor play needs that is recreational and educational! Read the rave reviews on this site too. For more info visit amherstyouthandcrec.org find us on Facebook Friends of the Family Room.

  2. I have been to billy beez, it’s a great place for kids of all ages. If you are a parent or grandparent that can play & climb & slide with your children it’s a great place. It can be expensive because you pay for all adults, even if you can’t do the climbing & slides. With a bad (R) knee & a total (L) hip replacement, I can’t & still have to pay to observe. It’s very secure but needs to have small lockers
    for purses etc. with paid child.

  3. If you haven’t been to Cheeky Monkeys in Canada yet , you should check it out with your children. All running & playing all the time. No waste of money on expensive token games 4 stupid little junk prizes. Children interact with others. Great leather furniture for parents to relax, look at a magazine or play on the equipment with their children with No extra cost. $10.00 CAD per child. I took my grandchildren 2 times & we love it. Clean & friendly.

  4. Rolly Pollies, Sweet Charlottes and maybe Billy Beez (?) The only one we’ve never been too, so I couldn’t be for sure on that suggestion!

  5. Hi, we will be visiting the area from Canada. What would be the best place (indoor play center) for a walking 15 month old?
    Thanks!

  6. My 8 year old daughter loves to draw/ and do art, but looking for a place that teaches it to kids, etc around Cheektowaga area..TY

  7. The culinary institute in niagara falls ny offers cooking classes for children and holiday events in. The month of December they have a bake off and the kids get to create their own gingerbread house

  8. Found the Grand Island Fun Center from this site, did not realize it was so close! Kids had a BLAST on the go karts and mini golf and was very reasonably priced!

  9. Thanks Andrea. This list includes places people don’t have to register or sign up. They can just walk in and play or read or look at exhibits.

  10. Hi Ashley, that picture was just a random picture I found on google, it’s not around here. I just replaced it actually!

  11. I was curious to know .. There is a pic at the top of this page showing an indoor play place with what looks like a ball pit. I was wondering what place that is and would it be a great fit for a 10 and 8 year old? Thanks 🙂

  12. Is there a place that teen girls can go and play dress up for a birthday party. Either in or around Williamsville ?

  13. Toddletown and more is an indoor playplace in depew. The website link is not active…I’ll have to give a call over there to see what’s up!

  14. Make Your Mark Art Studio should be in the list too, transit in east amherst.
    Great place for kids art classes, parties, etc.

  15. Hi Kelly! The reason I don’t break things down by age is I feel I’m not qualified to do so unless it is ages 7 and under. (These are the ages of my own kids!) Anything above 7 I just don’t feel comfortable giving an age range.

  16. If including Rochester area stuff.. Kango in henrietta is awesome. Also there is the sandbox…

  17. Just found out about a place called Skyzone, in Cheektowaga – haven’t been there, but it sounds like lots of fun… All trampolines, all the time! ;^)
