I have two little boys with winter birthdays and SAINT ALBANS is in DIRE need of a indoor toddler/younger kid area to play, some days it is too cold, wet or yucky out to do things and i am SICK of having my kids birthday in our garage or driving 40 minutes to Williston for a party. Saint Albans is NORTH but you would have a BIG draw!!

Major competition is the Mcdonald's w/indoor playgrounds. Those are pretty popular in the winter and cheap. Plus I think there might not be enough kids in most places to make it work. FYI Ludlow has a teenage center of some sort attached to American Pie.

It's three years later, but I'm wondering if you opened one, McG, and where. I grew up in Springfield and there wasn't much to do. Main Street had Y type of thing with a basketball court that doubled as a skating rink on weekends. As a teenager, I took lessons as the Dance Factory inside that old factory along the river. And there was bowling and candlepin bowling. We'd go to Claremont often to roller skate.

I'm headed back there for Christmas with my 2-yr old and am now searching for indoor playgrounds. I find that they are safe (and warm) places for him to get out some energy. Springfield and surrounding towns/villages has enough population to keep you busy year round, especially if you service all ages of kids. North Springfield has all the land, though, so that's really the place. I'd also recommend Claremont, NH. It's about 20 minutes (maybe 12 miles) from Springfield, so you'd get that whole crowd along with the Claremont, Bellows Falls, Rockingham, etc.
