Whether you’re dodging raindrops, braving the cold or just prefer the cozy indoors, there’s plenty of fun to be had in Calgary.

This winter has been kind to Calgary — December, in particular, was the warmest in 140 years.

Yet, even when it's a balmy -5 degrees Celsius in March, that crisp chill can be a problem for families with energetic kids (that’s code for kids who like to relocate couches, rearrange the contents of bookshelves and conduct unplanned science experiments in the kitchen sink when their parents are trying to quietly read a book).

Indoor trampoline parks provide a perfect sanctuary from the cold, offering a vibrant and entertaining space where kids can bounce, leap, and expend their surplus energy far away from delicate glassware and expensive home entertainment systems.

Here are a few examples of the fun indoor activities that await you at Flying Squirrel in north Calgary:

    • Adventure Soft Play Playground: Step into the Adventure Soft Play Playground, one of the best indoor activities in north Calgary, where even adults can unleash their inner child without judgment — no judgment, just a bunch of grown-ups navigating tunnels and obstacles with the grace of caffeinated squirrels. If you're up for a hilarious journey through foam-filled tunnels and bouncy challenges, welcome to the playground where fun knows no age.
    • Battlebeam: The name really says it all here. Grab your (padded) quarterstaff and get ready for the ultimate test of balance and friendship as you attempt to knock your buddies into the foam pit without taking a tumble yourself. Spoiler alert: you will fall and swimming through hundreds of foam cubes on your way to the exit is a big part of the fun.
    • Dunk Hoops: Whether you’re 3 foot 5 or 6 foot 5, you’ll be able to slam dunk like an NBA player with our gravity defying dunk hoops. It's like playing basketball, but with an extra bounce in your step — literally. Dunk hoops are here to turn your basketball dreams into airborne reality.
    • Rope Swing: Embrace your inner primate on the rope swing, one of the best indoor activities in Calgary. It's not just an adventure; it's a chance to work on that upper body strength, and if all else fails, enjoy a graceful descent to the cushy crash pad below.
    • Aerial Silks: Ever dream of performing in a traveling circus? The aerial silks are where dreams of trapeze artistry meet mid-air twirls in a performance worthy of 'Silk de Soleil'. It's not just a workout; it's a graceful escapade that brings elegance, balance, coordination, agility, flexibility, and strength into one mesmerizing routine.


So, whether it's rainy or cold, or whether you happen to have a personal preference for the great indoors (we’re not judging!) head to Flying Squirrel for Calgary's best indoor activities.
