Schaumburg is fairly close to lots of wild parks and nature preserves. If the weather doesn’t cooperate, however, you still have plenty of reasons to get out of the house. Take a look at these three fantastic indoor attractions in Schaumburg. Each one appeals to families and provides a totally unique experience worth multiple visits.

This is a can’t miss opportunity for fans of LEGO. The chief attraction is Miniland, an exhibit of vast, lifelike LEGO worlds in startling variety and detail. The site also has its own cafe, a LEGO 4D theater, and awesome family rides like Merlin’s Apprentice. Parents and kids ride on a track through a fun indoor course and play games like shooting targets. Kids can build and test their own LEGO cars in races, and younger kids can play with extra large blocks in the Duplo Village. Lastly, expert LEGO builders should visit the Master Builder Academy and Workshop to get inspiration.

LEGOLAND Discovery Center is open until 7:00 p.m. every day of the week. An Ultimate Flexi Ticket for LEGOLAND is only $30.99 and includes admission to all exhibits, movies, and rides on any day or time you like, or you could get a simple online ticket scheduled for a specific time for $14.99. This is a special online price worth getting, as the regular walk-in price is $19.95.

Yu Kids Island is an indoor play park at Woodfield Mall with bouncy castles, slides, and much more. There are rooms filled with balloons, Merry-Go-Round carousels, a rotating pillow wheel, an 800-square-foot and two-storey jungle maze with tons of obstacles, and separate rooms for birthday parties.

Yu Kids Island Chicago is open until 9:00 p.m. on every day except Sunday, when it closes on 6:00 p.m. A Monday through Thursday Unlimited Play ticket is $10 per child and $9 for each additional sibling. If you’d like to save a few bucks, there are Pajama Play tickets reserved for the last business hour of the day, at only $5 per child. The Thursday special also offers one hour of play for $5.

Do your kids love everything about firefighters? Take them to this engaging indoor play zone that mixes fun with education on one of the most vital public service careers. There are play structures built out of repurposed old firetrucks and various cool activities that make kids feel like little firefighters. They even get an authentic nickel-plated firefighter badge.

FireZone is open 24 hours and requires scheduling ahead of time. It’s usually used for exclusive parties, but there are also Drop-In play times where kids can explore the whole place without a large group and enjoy specific events for that day of the week. Prices range significantly depending on the size of your group, the day, etc. so use their handy calendar to see what’s available and at what prices.

With these three awesome indoor attractions, no family has an excuse to lay about the house watching T.V. We hope you and your loved ones have a blast wherever you end up going.
