Fun Fun Fun's mini metropolis of arcade games and family-friendly activities engages guests across its 12,000-square-foot grounds. Whirring lights and buzzing sounds emanate from 100 games at the arcade, where players can slap and tilt their way through a classic game of pinball or try their hand at more modern alternatives, such as Guitar Hero or Deal or No Deal. Success at the arcade reaps material returns in the form of the center's various prizes, and Fun Fun Fun's indoor laser-tag arena rewards winners with the competitive pleasure of besting frenemies in futuristic combat. Outdoor revelry awaits at two 18-hole miniature golf courses, which meander around rocky outcroppings and a central pond, as well as at the batting cages, where a system of nets keeps sharply struck balls from sneaking away for a slice of pizza or a snow cone at the snack bar.

White-sand beaches flank a 6-acre manmade, sand-bottom lake at Fantasy Lake Water Park, a family-friendly destination offering attractions both in and out of the water. There are numerous water slides, including enclosed-tube slides, open slides with foam mats, and drop slides that unleash adrenaline by sending bodies freefalling to a splash landing. Visitors can also glide into the lake on swings or play games of volleyball or basketball waist deep in water. Pedal-boat rentals are included with admission, giving legs a chance to do some of the work after walking around on your hands all day. Kid-friendly ziplines and other attractions populate a children’s zone, and the savory scents of barbecue drift from charcoal grills in a picnic area.

From sporting events to arcade games to electronic trivia, the 30 HD screens at Hellas Restaurant & Sports Bar engage diners with a variety of diversions. When not watching TV, diners can cluster around tables to order from a menu that includes Greek cuisine made with olives and feta cheese, as well as grilled steaks and seafood.

The bar's specialty drinks bear the names of Greek gods, such as the Aphrodite, which includes a sweet blend of Malibu, Midori, and vanilla vodka. During late nights on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, the music turns up and the lights go low as the eatery transforms into a nightclub, complete with a live DJ, flashing lights, and actual basilisks that take over the dance floor with their best renditions of the worm.
