Greystone Recreation Center (an indoor playground) in Raleigh.
I really had a great time, and so did the girls. It has a little jungle gym area (pictured above) and an 8-foot rock climbing wall. My kids were too little for it, but it looks like fun for when they get just a bit older.
It's a lot smaller than I expected and is located within a strip mall. But it was clean and perfect for a short trip on a rainy day. I have heard that they only allow so many kids and on a rainy or bad-weather day (cold, snow, hurricane/tropical storm) it can fill up fast, and they will turn you away. But we had no problem with that.
The hours, too, are a bit funny. It's open from 9-11 a.m. and reopens at 12:30- 5 Monday thru Friday. It's open 9-12 on Saturdays. So it's not terribly convenient, but I think it's worth it to break up a day or even week of bad weather!

HIGHLIGHTS: I love the rock-climbing wall; it's a great alternative when the weather is not ideal, wonderfully decorated/painted, and the parents were incredibly friendly! I've found that's a bigger deal than it should be, but a fun park can be ruined but unfriendly moms and dads (which I saw a lot of!).
