Nestled in the heart of Las Vegas, Kids Town is a unique indoor playground that sparks creativity and ignites imaginations. This miniature metropolis, designed for children aged two to twelve, is more than just a jungle gym; it’s an immersive world of pretend play where kids can be anything they dream of being.

Our Experience and Pros & Cons (Highly Recommend Reading This Section!)
Overall, we had a great time at Kids Town. There were a few “misses” for us – some of which I have shared with the owner, which I will include below.
We got there right at our designated time slot (we chose the first session) and had to wait about 10-15 minutes to check-in (as there was only 1 person) and about 20 reservations for kids to pay. This process was a bit slow and I do wish they had more people checking in as it cuts into play time.
I also feel that $5 per additional adult is a bit much, since adults can’t do much but sit and watch. I could see maybe $2-3/person. I know their front space is smaller in terms of seating, so by having a price tag associated with additional adults, it does deter people from bringing extra, but also we had a couple grandparents in town and had to pay extra just for them to sit which was a bummer.
The kids had a blast. It was busy and I honestly wish they had a designated toddler time because there were some older kids that kind of run over the littles ones at times. I know it was during a school break, so that is something to keep in mind.
I did ask for an empty cup with a straw because I had forgotten my one-year-olds cup at home for breastmilk (#MOMBRAIN) and I was told that I would have to pay for one of their custom drinks ($2) which was a big thumbs down for me. You’d think after spending $45 for our family to visit that a small ask for a cup would be no big deal.
Snacks for sale were unimpressive and definitely not on the cleaner ingredient side, so I recommend bringing your own – love that they allow this. I didn’t see anyone purchase a drink or crispy treat, nor did I purchase one, but pricing seems reasonable for that type of drink!
The kids literally played non-stop. I didn’t see their staff cleaning or wiping down anything during our 2-hour window, but I do wish I did see something because kids just shove things in their mouths constantly. They were having so much fun running from store to store!
I love that everything is all in one area and you do not have to worry about losing your little ones.
Unique Concept: Unlike traditional playgrounds, Kids Town boasts a meticulously crafted miniature town. Children can explore various themed areas like a grocery store, a school, auto shop, and even a pizzaria. Each space is filled with interactive props allowing kids to truly embody different roles and professions.
Encourages Imaginative Play: Through pretend play, children develop essential skills like problem-solving, communication, and social interaction. Kids Town provides a safe and stimulating environment where they can freely express their creativity and build confidence.
Engaging for Parents: While kids are busy exploring the town, parents can relax in the designated seating areas. The open layout allows parents to easily keep an eye on their children while enjoying a cup of coffee or reading a book.
Bring Your Own Snacks: While you can purchase snacks and drinks on site, you can also bring your own (just not allowed to eat in the play area). This was great when my toddler was ready for a little break for snack and milk before playing again.
Limited Age Range: Kids Town is primarily geared towards children between the ages of two and twelve. Older children might find the play areas too simplistic.
Can Get Crowded: During peak hours and weekends, Kids Town can get crowded, especially the popular areas like the grocery store. This is something to keep in mind if you have younger kiddos, plus lots of germs in the sessions that are full! This was one of the only outings we had that week and we were all sick for a week a day or two after our visit!
