Putt-Putt Fun Center delights families with an entertaining array of attractions and prize games. Attraction passes grant multiple guests or invisible acquaintances access to rousing rounds of putt-putt golf on one of two 18-hole courses or the chance to zip toward the finish line in electric go-karts. SpinZone circular bumper cars fuel sibling rivalries and allow families to find out which of their members has been a crash test dummy all along. Game credits count toward rounds hurling skee-balls and swinging in batting cages (8 game credits). Although not included in this package, the on-site snack shack nourishes visitors with succulent pizzas, ice cream, and multiple applications for sporks.
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.
Utilizing the same technology used to train military skydivers, Paraclete XP SkyVenture re-creates the pulse-racing plunge of a free-fall through an enclosed vertical wind tunnel. Blasting air up in a seamless vertical column, SkyVenture's wind tunnel creates a flight chamber of smooth wall-to-wall airflow that grants you the temporary gift of flight without arm enchantments or the risk of melting waxen wings. Prior to liftoff participants receive video and personal instruction, then don their gear for two minute-long flights—the equivalent of three skydives from 13,000 feet or one ejection from Mount Olympus.
Scampering through Lazer FX–Lazer Tag's 7,500-square-foot labyrinth, combatants volley photons in exhilarating 20-minute skirmishes. Laser soldiers don luminescent vests and DayGlo bowties before entering the arena, where a mix of 30-odd friends and foes dodge blasts while darting from refuge to refuge. For groups of four, the battle extends out of the arena and onto the 8,000-square-foot arcade floor. Here, more than 120 games—including pool tables, skee-ball lanes, driving simulators, and air hockey—promote hand-eye coordination more effectively than soccer.
At the start of every game, fog fills Surf's Up Family Fun Center’s multi-level, underwater-themed laser tag arena. It’s one of several obstacles that up to 60 players tackle as they sneak up on opponents and navigate labyrinthine corridors decked out in black-lit murals of aquatic critters.
Laser tag isn’t the only adrenaline-pumping activity to be found inside the 18,000-square foot fun center. Four challenging paths lead climbers to the summit of a 24-foot rock wall equipped with an auto-belay system. Meanwhile, pucks zip across air hockey tables in an arcade with more than 60 games, including Dance Dance Revolution and its classic sequel Rest Rest Revolution. Otherwise, twisting tubes connect the multi-level play structure in a soft play area for younger kids, who can also ride down slides or play rounds of skee-ball.
To refuel hungry guests, an all-you-can-eat buffet serves 10 types of pizza, as well as pastas, salads, desserts, and soft drinks.
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.
Kids have free reign over Busy Bodies Exploratory’s indoor playground. Inside the carpeted expanse, children can clamber around a school-bus-shaped play structure, lay out a toy meal on a child-sized dining room set, and solve rainbow-colored puzzles to impress the parents of other little ones, in addition to participating in arts and crafts and painting. While the playground's myriad stations are often the site of supervised, unstructured play, the center also hosts preschool from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays or Tuesdays and Thursdays. During class, students learn about a variety of topics, from science and math to arts and crafts, music, and reading.
