Best Spot for Knights-In-Training: King Arthur’s Court

King Arthur’s Court opened more than 40 years ago and remains an East Side staple. Housed in the heart of Oakley Square, the hobby shop is stocked with a bounty of toys, board games and puzzles galore. They live up to their tagline, “Where play is king!” Stroll in and you’ll likely encounter multiple kids (and adults) testing out a toy or snacking on a bag of popcorn, which customers can grab for free. The most whimsical addition to this Cincy staple, however, is “The Dungeon.” Make your way down a set of stairs into a renovated basement set up with couches, hanging Huggelpods, a mini zip line and even a room dedicated to archery. You don’t need to be a kid to appreciate this haven of fun. King Arthur’s Court, 3040 Madison Road, Oakley, kingarthurstoys.com.
