New Jersey indoor amusement parks and other year-round fun in NJ
There are more year-round, indoor amusement facilities than ever in New Jersey.
A handful of places have indoor rides — including roller coasters — and arcade games.
Even more spots offer trampolines for jumping regardless of the weather, while some have added "American Ninja Warrior" style challenge courses.
It's always best to check out the venue's website for any updates to hours and pricing, before heading out.
