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).
