Indoor Activities for Colder Weather

While Barrie offers a wide variety of outdoor activities to enjoy year-round, especially over the winter, sometimes the weather is not always the vibe!

So, when it might be too cold or snowy out there, it's time to enjoy some indoor activities!

If you're not sure what might be best, not to worry! We’ve put together a list of some fun indoor activities for both the kids and adults in Barrie. Enjoy!

Kids Activities

Keep the kiddos entertained and use up some of their excess energy with fun activities to get their minds going and their bodies moving. 

Creative café 

There is an artist in all of us! Creative Café provides an atmosphere that is lots of fun. Unleash your creativity in their new Art Studio that is suitable for ALL ages. Creative Café is a funky and contemporary studio where you are the artist.

Choose from hundreds of unique pieces, select your own paint colours and give your pottery a personal touch. You will create fully functional and fabulous personal pottery for your home or as a gift.


Alt rock 

Perfect for all ages, the Alt Rock facility offers 6,000 square feet of climbing surface focused on bouldering. Enter the vertical realm at one of the fantastic rock-climbing facilities in the area. Whether you are a beginner or an expert, there are climbing routes for you!

They also have two party rooms and a dedicated kid’s area that features an auto-belay wall for those climbers interested in roped climbing.



Unlimited Fun Under One Roof!
Climbing, sliding, bouncing, and creating will keep your child busy for hours. Barrie's newest indoor playland has something for every kid, big or small, with bouncy castles, wall climbing, a ninja course, a soft play area for toddlers, arcade games and a fun café offering a variety of food choices to keep you energetic and warm.
