Comments

  1. Just found out about a place called Skyzone, in Cheektowaga – haven’t been there, but it sounds like lots of fun… All trampolines, all the time! ;^)

  2. Hi Nancy – yes! Skyzone is awesome! You can read my Mom Review of it up in the Mom Review section.

  3. Anonymous says:

    Strong museum would be great addition to this list art gallery too

  4. Theatre of Youth should definitely be mentioned on this list!

  5. melissa says:

    If including Rochester area stuff.. Kango in henrietta is awesome. Also there is the sandbox…

  6. Kelly Simpson says:

    It would lovely to see a tab on this site, breaking down fun things age appropriately! xo

    • Fun4KidsInBuffalo says:

      Hi Kelly! The reason I don’t break things down by age is I feel I’m not qualified to do so unless it is ages 7 and under. (These are the ages of my own kids!) Anything above 7 I just don’t feel comfortable giving an age range.

  7. Ferguson Planetarium is currently closed for renovations.

  8. Bounce magic’s Amherst location is reopened on Maple road near Dick’s sporting goods.

  9. Try Music with Mar classes, offered all year at multiple locations all over WNY. See their website for all class listings.

  10. Kimberly Stahl says:

    What is toddletown and more? When I go to the link it gives me an error. Thanks

  11. Sharon Travis says:

    Make your Mark art studio in East Amherst has closed :-(

  12. There is a really great place in Wyoming County on Route 20A if your children LOVE animals this is a must do. They also have a really great petting zoo. It is worth the drive. Below is the link.

  13. How about the Butterfly Conservatory in Niagara Falls???

  14. Jillian M. Rung says:

    Dave and Buster’s! Way better than Chuckie cheese! ! :)

  15. Christina B says:

    Is there a place that teen girls can go and play dress up for a birthday party. Either in or around Williamsville ?

  16. I was curious to know .. There is a pic at the top of this page showing an indoor play place with what looks like a ball pit. I was wondering what place that is and would it be a great fit for a 10 and 8 year old? Thanks :)

    • Fun4KidsInBuffalo says:

      Hi Ashley, that picture was just a random picture I found on google, it’s not around here. I just replaced it actually!

  17. Stutelage Innovations in East Amherst is a great place for programs for kids!

    • Fun4KidsInBuffalo says:

      Thanks Andrea. This list includes places people don’t have to register or sign up. They can just walk in and play or read or look at exhibits.
