Open Play at Chantilly Play N' Learn
Come play for up to 2 hours of play in our spacious showroom in Chantilly, VA. Our huge indoor facility, which features safe rubber flooring, has swingsets, basketball goals, trampolines, air hockey and foosball tables best suited to entertain ages 2-8.
Monday – Friday (except school holidays), just pop-in anytime from 10AM-5PM. No advance tickets or reservations are required except for school holidays like Martin Luther King Day. Just pop-in and pay at the counter when you arrive.
Saturdays, Sundays and School Holidays, we limit the number of Open Play tickets & you MUST pre-purchase a ticket online for weekend play. Tickets can not be purchased at the store on the weekends. This is done in an effort to ensure the safety and comfort of our guests as weekends are busier due to birthday parties and shoppers. Weekend Play tickets are posted every Friday and generally sell out very fast.
Thursday Mornings, from 10am to 12pm is Play-For-Charity. CLICK HERE for more info on Play for Charity
If you are coming to our store to shop, you do not need a ticket for play. Your kids are welcome to test-play while you shop. Just visit anytime during shopping hours.
