Rain or shine, these attractions stand out in the Twin Cities

No matter when you visit Minneapolis and St. Paul, we always have something good in store. Here are five of our favorite Twin Cities indoor attractions that will make your visit, whether you’re the biggest Prince fan or a super sleuth.

1. The Escape Game

You and your team are on the clock with 60 minutes to save the world, steal a masterpiece, repair a spaceship and more at The Escape Game in Mall of America. Each themed room is completely interactive and designed to test your observation and detective skills, and with different levels of difficulty, there’s a perfect adventure for all ages and groups.

2. Can Can Wonderland

Give an artist a mini golf hole and you get a royal frog, a loop-de-loop, a tornado, a music mountain and more to putt through. With both all ages and adults-only hours, make sure to schedule plenty of time to check out the boardwalk arcade, eclectic events, menu, and out-of-the-box cocktails.

3. Whirlyball

If you hadn’t heard, the Twin Cities invented its own sport: Whirlyball, part-lacrosse, part-basketball, part-hockey and … wait for it … part-bumper cars. Play in teams of up to five, and when you want to switch things up, check out the 4,000-square foot laser tag map and the full restaurant and bar.

4. Up/Down

Go full tilt on the pinball machines, wreck it with Ralph and more at the ever-changing selection at this adults-only arcade. With more than 50 arcade games—costing only 25 cents each—and more than 60 brews on tap, a trip down memory lane with your buddies is only a quarter away.

5. Paisley Park

We know this one is a bit obvious because Prince is such a huge part of Minnesota, but can you blame us? Tour the main floor, recording studios, soundstage and more of Prince’s home, and on Saturdays, stay for dinner and a DJ dance party in his NPG Music Club Room.
