Throughout most of the year, North Carolina and South Carolina are defined by sunny skies and warm temperatures. The Carolinas still have their fair share of rainy seasons, and winters can often be cruelly cold. Thankfully both the Tar Heel State and the Palmetto State are home to various indoor entertainment venues. The next time the weather takes a turn for the worse, reroute your day of fun to one of these Carolina attractions.
Coconut Charlie's Bump'n Bounce (North Carolina)
When the weather is nice, kids can burn off pent-up energy outside. However, when the climate is cool or the skies are cloudy, it may prove more difficult for your little ones to get the exercise they need. Fortunately, Coconut Charlie's Bump'n Bounce in Raleigh offers an indoor alternative for wound-up tykes. The tropical-themed indoor entertainment venue is full of bounce houses and other exercise-based games and activities. If your kids need a recharge, they can swing by the Tiki Hut Café for a bite to eat before returning to bouncing-based fun!
Charleston Fun Park (South Carolina)
Located in Mount Pleasant near the city of Charleston, the Charleston Fun Park is one of the area’s premier family destinations. While the Charleston Fun Park does offer plenty of outdoor activities, it also has indoor entertainment during days of rainy or cold weather. Guests can enjoy a round or two of bowling at the on-site mini bowling alley. For an activity that’s a little more advanced, the Charleston Fun Park also houses a Virtual Reality Arena. When the weather does improve, you and your crew can head outside and enjoy a round of miniature golf or go for a go kart race. The Charleston Fun Park truly does have an activity for any time of the year.
Fox-N-Otter Adventure Puzzle Rooms (North Carolina)
Some of the most popular indoor entertainment venues across the country are escape rooms. Asheville has an enjoyable escape room center of its very own with Fox-N-Otter Adventure Puzzle Rooms. Fox-N-Otter differs from many escape room attractions due to the fact that it offers rooms for various ages and skill levels. Its “advanced” room is “The DaVinci Diamond” puzzle, while younger participants can enjoy “The Super Secret” escape room. Additionally, Fox-N-Otter often hosts seasonal rooms. The themes of the rooms are always changing, which means you’ll have a new experience almost every time you visit.
Wonderworks (South Carolina)
WonderWorks, located in Myrtle Beach, is a hybrid between a museum and an indoor entertainment venue. Not only does it have science-based exhibits, it also has plenty of games and activities, too. Inside WonderWorks, guests will find exhibits about space exploration, natural disasters and the various human senses. Almost all of these exhibits are hands-on, allowing for young scientists to better explore the concepts. After a day of learning, you can continue the fun with a round of laser tag or by participating in the venue’s indoor ropes challenge. When it comes to WonderWorks, there’s no wrong way to explore the world around you.
When you call the Carolinas home, you won’t have to let a bit of bad weather ruin your fun, especially not when you can visit these indoor venues.
