My daughter was thrilled to receive a gift card to Billy Beez, an indoor play area that recently came to Albany, NY. While there are several locations around the US, this one is located in Crossgates Mall.
You pay in the lobby, and each person is given a bracelet with an identification number (both children and adults). My kids (ages 8 and 10) were each $20, and I was $6.95. Although the price covers a full day at Billy Beez, I did think it was expensive (which is what other parents had mentioned earlier).
The kids were super excited to get started, and immediately started running and playing. There is a coat room with cubbies to stash your shoes, jackets, etc.
There are lots of different things to do, from slides to tunnels, tubes and more. The kids loved exploring everything there.
The kids also played in the ball area, where you can shoot and collect balls.
There is a play village with pretend kitchens, stores, and more. Lots of fun for kids to use their imaginations and play make believe.
There is an arcade with a variety of games too.
There is a cafe at Billy Beez, and while we did not eat there, it had a basic menu which is a great option for when the kids get hungry.
My kids and their friends played for about two hours before they were tired and hungry. They had spent the majority of time running, climbing, and screaming, so I fully anticipated that they would be tired out. We stopped for a lunch break and then returned for another hour of play, before the kids decided to call it quits.
In order to leave, you need to show your wrist bands before an attendant opens the gates. This is a great way to make sure the kids stay safe and leave only with the adults that they came with.
The kids had a blast, and while the price was expensive, it was a nice treat for the kids. I can see the cost adding up fast if you have a couple adults and kids, and spend money on the entry fee, food, arcade, and so on.
It was a fun way for them to spend time with friends and get a lot of physical activity on a day off from school. The whole facility was very clean, everything seemed very safe and well-maintained, and I was also quite happy that the temperature was cool inside (not hot and stuffy).

Billy Beez Indoor Play Space for Kids seems fantastic. I would have loved a place like this to take my son to when he was young, especially when he was bored in the winter.
Wow what a ton of fun activities and things for kids to do! My grandsons would have a blast here!
This is a really fun place to visit with the kids and have fun all day with them. They would love to go to Billy Beez, I wish they had this place where I live!
This looks so fun! I’ve never heard of Billy Beez before! I love that everything looks very safe, too.
This place looks like a really fun place for kids. I wish we had one where I live, my grandsons would love it.
This looks like the perfect place to take the kids when the weather isn’t so great. We have something similar here and it is a blast.
That looks like such a fun place for the kids to play. I love all the different areas and all the bright colors. It’s perfect!
That is just about the best kids’ play place I’ve ever seen. There’s so much there for the kids to enjoy. I can see it being used as an amazing play day for a group of friends.
Billy Beez looks like a really good time. My five year old loves places like this. I like places like this because she gets to run out a lot of energy.
Indoor play spaces are perfect when the weather’s unbearable and the kids would love to go out and play! I think this is really so much fun! There’s a lot in store for the kids!
It sounded like this was a great place for the kids to play! I definitely like how many different play options there are.
This sounds like a fun place to let the kids burn off some energy. I wish they have one of these in our area.
Oh now this sounds like such a fun place for kids to get to have a good time and hopefully burn off some of that endless energy!
What a great play space. In the winter, the weather can be too terrible to play outside, but you need some way to get rid of the extra energy! This place would definitely do it!
I’ll have to keep this in mind for when my little one gets older. It has so many interactive play elements!
We love neighbourhood places like this one! Our kids would spend a lot of time here, and looks like they have options to play with for different aged kids with varied interests!
That looks like a great place for a rainy or much too snowy day. We’d love to take the whole family!
This looks like fun. Nothing like an indoor play station to burn that energy off and have fun.
