Best Kids’ Playroom

  • Bounce ’N Play

    20-21 Steinway St., Astoria; 718-777-7529

    Once children hit first grade, they’ve already aged out of most indoor kiddie gyms. But not at Bounce ’N Play. Though there’s plenty to amuse preschoolers (a two-level maze with chutes and ladders, a toddler carousel), owner Christine Nieto wanted a place where tweens and even parents could frolic. Her 6,000-square-foot romper room features colorful inflatable slides and bounce houses open to all ages, plus a challenging 20-foot rock-climbing wall. The playful can drop by for Friday Family Open Nights ($12 for those under age 4, $17 for everyone else) or the weekday two-hour play sessions, which are organized by age (so no trampled tots).
