Indoor Places for Cold, Rainy, or Snowy Days in Grand Rapids

By Loreale M. February 7, 2022

Winter is always a challenging time to find fun and exciting things for the kids to do in Grand Rapids. Especially with covid. Here is a list of places to go when the weather outside is not ideal. 


1. Escape Rooms

Escape Rooms are great options to consider as they have many different room themes to choose from. Both places recommend kids 16 and up due to the difficulty of the puzzles. Kids under 16 are permitted but must be accompanied by adults. 

The Great Escape Room Grand Rapids 

233 Fulton St E #211, Grand Rapids, MI 49503

Cost: $33 for adults, $29.70 for students and military/veterans w/ ID

Locked 460 Escape Rooms 

2035 28th St SE Ste I, Grand Rapids, MI 49508

Cost: Prices based on the number of people in your group 

2. Selfie World

What kid does not like to take selfies? Take a ton of photos at Selfie World on family friendly backgrounds. Selfie World is a little farther out (Byron Center) but it's totally worth the drive. 

350 84th St SW, Byron Center, Mi 49315 Suite 1035 @ the Tanger Outlet Mall

Cost: $20 general admission; 12 and up $15; 2 and under FREE

3. Kroc Center

I never knew how convenient memberships were until I became a mom. The KrocCenter is a great place to join. They have tons of things to do for the whole family. At the moment they are only servicing members. Check their site or call at a later date to know when they will be servicing non-members.

Cost: $90 per month up to a family of 5
