Kids Indoor Play Venues in Johannesburg 2019
Kids Indoor Play and Party Venues in Johannesburg
Don’t you just hate those cold and overcast or rainy days when the kids are stuck indoors and your house looks like a re-take of Jumanji? Let’s face it, we are a nation which loves spending time in the outdoors (even our houses are built around this principle) and we are often at a loss at what to do when we have to stay indoors. Thankfully, there are a number of indoor play venues with coffee shops in and around Johannesburg, which allow us to go out (even if not outdoors).
Here are our top choices:
