The Tubes indoor playground is a fun little spot for kids to burn off some energy, especially in the heat of the summer!
Address: 2435 Kinwest Pkwy, Irving, TX 75063
It’s located in the middle of Irving Bible Church, enclosed in a room with tall ceilings and large glass windows. There are a variety of tubes and tunnels for kids to explore along with multiple slides (several stories high), a rope ramp, and foam obstacles.
Because the inside of the playroom is viewable from the outside, parents can sit either inside or outside the playroom and key and eye on things. There’s even free wifi and a coffee shop if you’re so inclined (more info on that below). This main part is geared towards children about 3 to 8 years old (under 52 inches). However, inside the Tubes, there is one spot on the lower right hand side that is climbable for kids under 3 — if they get stuck, you’re within arms reach and won’t have to crawl up three stories of tubes to get them.
For toddlers and little ones under 3: there is a little “Bugs” play spot that is right next to the Tubes, which is designated for younger children under 36 inches. This Bugs area is carpeted and cushiony, and has a few over-sized bugs that little ones can play on and climb around. However, it is not enclosed, so if you have multiple little ones that like to run, this spot may not be doable for extended periods of time! Thankfully, the staff at Irving Bible Church is very friendly and understanding if your little one wants to explore a little bit in other parts of the main lobby area.
