We spent a summer afternoon at Hyperkidz in Columbia, Maryland. It was about 45 minutes from DC.
What’s in Hyperkidz Columbia, MD?
Hyperkidz is in an office park and GPS directions won’t steer you wrong. It’s around the back of the office park, and there’s ample parking there. We learned upon arrival that everyone needs socks, to include adults. It doesn’t have to be their branded socks, it can be any type of sock so don’t forget to bring those with you!
The gym is separated into different play spaces by age range. On the far left were slides and a ball pit for toddler age. The big “spiderweb” play structure in the middle of the space was the big draw for most of the kids. My kids ran through quite a few times. On the right side of the space in the back is a play area for babies and toddlers under 2 years old. Then on the side were some slides and a play area for 2 – 7 years old, or those under 4 feet tall.
There are plenty of places for parents to sit around the space and there’s also WiFi as well…as if you could get any work done with all these kids running around!
The kids enjoyed it, but even though they say ages up to 12 years old are welcome, my daughters just turned 7 & 9 and the 9 year old seemed to not be interested after about 30 minutes. It could be that it was too crowded which, during Covid, was somewhat of a surprise. Or it could be that the equipment really wasn’t engaging enough for her and she felt like it was too easy. We would really only recommend this for children 7 and under.
