Our Story – A Forward Evolution

From its inception, Play: has been designed to be the largest indoor adventure park of its kind! What exactly is an indoor adventure park? It’s a place where you can be active and social while challenging yourself and others. Most of all, it’s a place to have fun no matter your age.

Our facility features a mix of fun, but challenging attractions guaranteed to get you moving all year round.

Whether it’s one of the longest indoor zip line in Ohio or the first indoor Via Ferrata in North America or the largest indoor ropes courses in the world, we’ve got something for everyone. You’ll find ninja/obstacle courses, parkour courses and climbing walls, not to mention a full-service bar and restaurant where you not only watch all the action, but be immersed in it. Have an event coming up? We host numerous events including birthday parties, After Proms, company outings, and much more!

Want to get to know us? Check out our interactive story below. We can’t wait for you to create memories at Play:!

01The Idea

Play: started as an idea - like most great adventures do. Greg, our CEO, and his daughter, Bridget, our CPO, went to an outdoor ropes course in New York and thought to themselves... how can we bring the fun of outdoors - inside?

02The Plan

Many fun nights of throwing around different names and concepts, the Carlin's finally landed on Play: CLE.

03The Construction

Reutilizing buildings and making them our own is our sweet spot. Play: CLE started as a boat storage facility and now holds over 25,000 square feet of fun!

04The Opening

On December 2, 2017, Play: CLE opened. Greg, Robin, Bridget, and Megan began an adventure of a lifetime together as as a family.

05The Beginning

This journey of a lifetime began with a team of Play: makers that strive for the best guest experience and withhold up the highest of safety standards.

06The Expansion

We found out the concept worked and Play: evolved once again and came a rebrand, too! With our second location in Columbus, we found out what worked and how to keep improving + growing!

07The Opening Pt. 2

Play: CBUS is coming soon. Are you ready?

To Be Continued…

The story is just starting and we can't wait for you all to join.
