Indoor Play Place for Kids Now Open in Grand Rapids

My three-year old daughter and I dropped into Catch Air today, the new indoor play place located in the old World Market location off of 28th Street (across the street from Woodland Mall in Kentwood).

More Than Inflatables

The concept is cool.

There was an impromptu dance party – with bubbles – while we were there.

Don’t be deceived by what you see when you first walk in. Most of the climbing and play toys hide inside a massive play structure that your kids will love to explore.

Tiny Town is for Little Kids

There’s also a separate play area for kids under 48 inches tall called Tiny Town.

My daughter loved that part the best.


Fun for the Big Kids, Too

Catch Air is designed for kids up to age 10.

Everything is interactive and encourages kids to move, climb, run and innovate.

There’s even a ball-shooting pit!

Safety Check

Your hand is stamped when you check in with invisible ink. Everyone in your party has the same number stamped on their hand and that is checked again when you leave.

Catch Air Field Trips

Catch Air Offers Field Trips for Kids

Catch Air is a great destination for field trips! Our goal is to create a special day for the kids and an easy day for the chaperones! We want to help build lasting memories! What you will find at Catch Air:

  • Soft Play Toddler Area & Tiny Town
  • Ball Cannon Area & Play Structure
  • Interactive Dance Floor with Bubbles and Big Screens

Catch Air offers a unique experience by providing separate areas for younger guests. The super fun dance parties, and ability to meet Freddy, our favorite mascot frog, make the Catch Air experience so much fun for our guests. Additionally, the safe and clean environment really allows the chaperones and parents to enjoy their time with the kids instead of spending their time counting heads!

Catch Air offers affordable field trips to groups of all sizes. Whether you are a church group with 10 kids, or a school district with 200 kids, we will be able to suit your needs with a perfect and fun experience!


Children are able to get their wiggles out by running, jumping and climbing their way through our 3-story maze, or by dancing and popping bubbles during one of our epic dance parties. There are two huge inflatables so if bouncing and sliding are more your thing, we have you covered.

For the more low-key kids, we have two 70-inch touch screen TVs with hundreds of interactive games. If your field trip consists of a wide age-range of kids, there are separate areas for our younger guests that will provide them with their own unique, safe and fun play time! We also encourage parent and chaperone involvement! The adults can re-live their youth by racing the kiddos down the slides and through the mazes!

Catch Air offers a wide variety of choices for our field trips. Whether a day of play is your only mission, or you want to add lunch by indulging your group in pizza, ice cream or other snacks, we can accommodate your needs!

We look forward to developing a relationship with your group or school and truly appreciate your patronage and support!

We do specialty field trips for autism groups, adoption groups, moms groups, and summer day care groups such as the YMCA.

  1. I saw something where you can drop off a “toy for tot” and receive 2 free general admission tickets. What is the last day that you are able to still donate a toy and get the free admission tickets.
    Thanks for your help and time with my questions. Merry Christmas everyone!!!

  2. i have 2 nine year olds who want to go are they to old or is this good for kids around there age to can i have someones opoinon who has been?

    1. There’s a play area for slightly older kids and there’s a designated play area for real little kids. Your kids would fit in with the slightly older kids and they would love it!

  3. Interested I birthday party info. For a soon to be 9 year old, or just walk in rate to play for a day. New to the area just moved here about 2 weeks ago.

    1. Michelle,
      Grand Rapids is blessed to have loads of awesome resources for planning birthday parties! I suggest you start with contacting Catch Air, since it seems that is who you are interested in. Clicking on the links in the above post will guide you to their website where you can get more information about Catch Air, including how to contact them. Catch Air partners with a nearby pizza place to bring in pizza for parties, so that might be a great option for your party! Catch Air will have more ideas for you on how to go about planning your party in their facility. Good luck!

  4. This place is awesome! Staff is extremely friendly and very helpful. They are always walking around cleaning the equipment. They stamp every child’s hand and their parents to make sure nobody takes your child. There are security cameras everywhere. Lots to do and parts are sectioned off for the younger children so they aren’t gettinh run over by the older children. You can also leave for awhile and come back without being charged again. I wish they would open one up in Dayton Ohio. We really enjoyed ourselves.

  5. I am looking to book a birthday party for april 26 2014 for the package of up 27 people. I have a few questions on prices after that, as well, as does this place accomodate ages up to 12 years old. I saw posed ages to 12 but then someone saying not under 10. Please respond either by email or phone 616-610-3719 regarding my questions. Thank you

    1. Hi Lisa, It would be best to call the facility directly and ask them about their age requirements and check availability. Good luck and let us know what you find.

  6. I don’t see where on their website that it mentions pre-walkers are free. I’m definitely interested in this place though! Can you clarify? Thanks!
