As the summer sun dips lazily into the horizon, the air fills with an orchestra of buzzing go-karts and humming ziplines punctuated by floods of laughter. The revelry lasts into the night only to start anew the next morning, a cycle that will continue until Labor Day’s arrival sends Kentucky Shores Family Fun Center’s attractions into hibernation. Guests of all ages romp around the park’s verdant grounds, orchestrating aquatic collisions in the bumper boats or hopping aboard a horse-drawn carriage for a trip back in time without the hassle of having to arm-wrestle your past self. The 36-hole mini golf course adds a touch of the majestic to putting outings thanks to its two waterfalls and stainless steel sculptures forged by renowned artist George Bandarra. Indoors, an arcade beckons guests to video games and rounds of skeeball, and a snack bar staves off hunger pangs with frozen treats and gooey pizzas.
Whether you're bobbing in the 18,000-square-foot wave pool or screaming down the Dueling Demon speed slide, there's never a dull?or dry?moment at Venture River Water Park. But the park's attractions aren't just for thrill-seekers; smaller family members can head to the kiddie pool, which features mini slides, a mushroom-shaped waterfall, and plenty of lounge chairs for parents. Party packages make a splash with kids of all ages with snacks, drinks, a birthday cake, and a ceremonial procession down the Old Man River.
With classic replica airsoft guns aimed, teams navigate a 25,000-square-foot indoor battlefield. Within the battlefield's three playing areas, gun-toters conceal themselves behind stacks of tires, stationary vehicles, and small wooden buildings. As combatants slink behind crates and boxes in the shadows, opposing players ferret them out using the light affixed to their weapons and a streaming fire of plastic BBs zipping at speeds up to 375 feet per second. Game play in the radioactive room commences under the glow of black lights that turn the graffiti-laden grounds phosphorescent and opponents' teeth bluer than their songs about battles lost. Adjacent to the battleground, airsoft enthusiasts mingle in the lounge space equipped with a retail shop, party area, and arcade for parties and group events.
