I have family in town this weekend (small children ages 3,4,5) any indoor activity suggestions besides the children's museum?

Thanks!
Lauri

I'm in the same predicament - have family arriving today from out-of-state (with young children) - here are my recommendations:

Kroc Center - fantastic indoor pool with a waterslide

Play Nation - great indoor play area

Haywood Mall - they have a small children's recreation area

A movie (Monster's University or Despicable Me 2) at Regal 20 or Camelot (Camelot is usually much less crowded than Regal)

Lastly, I've been to the Greenville Zoo with my kids during rainy weather - we just take rain jackets, waterproof shoes, and a good attitude - you have the park to yourself!

Unfortunately, none of the new indoor trampoline parks are open

This weather pattern is highly unusual - in fact, I don't ever recall a rainy 4th of July (in the Southeast US) in my life

The only other one I remember was in ?87/88? during Freedom Weekend Aloft when it was still at the 'Donaldson Center'. There was so much rain and so many cancelled balloon ascents that they held a balloon ascension encore in September.

Don't forget about Frankie's Fun Park.

Didn't mention because these kids are young and IMO Frankie's doesn't have a lot of stuff for them. Of course, I've never taken anyone younger than 8 or 9 so I could be wrong.

Just rode by the Cherrydale Theater. I have never seen the parking lot so packed. Mojo's was packed too. Everyone seems to be heading indoors for entertainment and for burgers.

Correct - the high today at my house was only 78 - July (in the Upstate) is hot, humid, and usually rain-free.
