Kid-Approved Rainy Day Activities in Rogers

Discover family fun with these exciting things to do indoors.

When the sun doesn't shine on your day to play, Rogers is the place to be with these seven attractions to keep cabin fever at bay.

1. Young Chef Academy offers new classes each week structured around a monthly theme. Drop in for a single class or sign up to become an elite Chef. Either way you’ll learn true culinary techniques with teacher guidance on original Young Chef Academy recipes.

2. Rogers Bowling Center has a family-friendly atmosphere and automatic bumpers on all 28 lanes in case you have kids in need of a little assistance. The center also has a cafe.

3. Studio 7 is a fine arts studio offering classes in painting and drawing for any skill level. Students work at an individual pace at their own skill level with the help of professional artists. Children’s classes are available. The studio has plenty of resources for tourists in town for a getaway that may not be traveling with their own art supples.

4. High Rise Extreme Air Sports, a popular indoor trampoline park, is a great place to burn some energy. Channel your inner ninja to complete the obstacle course. Also enjoy extreme dodgeball, slacklines, air dunk, trapeze, aerial silks, and foam pits.

5. Fast Lane Entertainment is a one-stop shop for all kinds of indoor fun. Go bowling, climb through the play structure, set a high score in the arcade, drive the spin zone bumper cars, ride the roller coaster and so much more in the 75,000 square-foot facility that makes up Fast Lane Entertainment. Big and little kids can have lots of laughs here.

6. Virtual Reality Game World & Event Center lets you experience the advanced simulation systems for golf, shooting, archery and racing. Don’t miss a session in the virtual reality chair with the virtual reality headset. In addition to the virtual reality simulation arcade, the center has European board games and dining at Euro Bistro, which offers German and European fare.

7. Malco Theatres provide opportunities to see the latest movies on the big screen. One is the Malco at Pinnacle Hills Promenade and the other is the Malco Rogers Towne Cinema on 46th Street.

8. Dave & Buster's allows everyone to be a kid for the day! Hundreds of arcade games to play over and over and then an opportunity to pick out your prize after collecting virtual tickets.

Bonus Tip: Head outdoors for even more family fun once the rain clears.

While most people tend to spend more time indoors during the winter, Northwest Arkansas actually has fairly mild winter temperatures. In fact, winter often offers some of the best days for outdoor play at public parks. Plenty of people find hiking city park trails or Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area trails and riding mountain bikes at The Railyard to be kid-approved winter activities.
