The winter may be winding down, but it’s still not time to get out in the yard yet. So we continue our list of fun things to do indoors on a cold or rainy day. If you missed Indoor Fun – Part 1, feel free to catch up on your reading. As for the rest of us, lets pick up with some other fun things to do indoors when the weather just won’t cooperate.
Bullseye Action Target Air Soft Range- Crossroads Center – St Cloud
Action Target shooting is an indoor shooting range for air soft guns in the Crossroads Center, St Cloud. All equipment is provided by the store. There are both kids and adult sizes so you can find out who in the family is the expert marksman. This may be a real life alternative to a video game if you’re trying to drag the kids away from the computer.
At the time of this writing, it’s $10 as an entry level package to give it a try.

Granite City Jump / Nice Axe – Waite Park
Lets say the family just can’t agree on what to do. Lets say some of your people are little people and they need to burn off energy. Lets even say that part of your group wants to throw axes at a wall. Well good news! Granite City Jump and Nice Axe in Waite Park are pretty much your destination.
Yes. A bunch of bouncy houses and an axe throwing venue. They’re not super close to each other and there are doors and dividers, so don’t let your mind wander. It’s all fun and games here.
Granite City Jump has a large space with multiple bounce features blown up and working at any given time. There are also private rooms for birthday parties and other gatherings, but you’ll need to make arrangements in advance.
At Nice Axe, there are 14 throwing lanes so there’s plenty of space even during busy times. This is a great place to learn the sport and get comfortable throwing.
Your best bet is the Sunday Jump and Throw. Both Venues are open with a combo price. You can split up your party so everyone has fun.
If that doesn’t work in your schedule, Axe Throwing is open Thursday through Saturday in the late afternoon/evening and noon on Sunday. Granite City Jump is open daytime hours starting at 10am Thursday through Saturday and Noon on Sunday.
