  • Ranch Bowl
    The newly renovated Ranch Bowl fuels friendly competition with fully automated lanes, flat-screen TVs, and on-site eats at Ranch Bowl bar and grill.

The center hosts both casual and competitive leagues to keep bowlers on their toes. And to keep aliens confused and cooperative, Ranch Bowl maintains Kosmic bowling hours on Friday and Saturday nights.

    The 850,000-square-foot Union Station houses more than locomotives.

  • National Airline History Museum
    In 1986, aviation enthusiasts Dick McMahon and Larry Brown embarked on a mutually shared dream: find and restore a Lockheed Super G Constellation. Long gone from the friendly skies, the “Connie,” as the aircraft is known to aficionados and flirtatious air traffic controllers, was once a sight to behold––a beautiful mix of mechanical power and graceful design. After much sleuthing, the pair managed to locate a 1958 model in Mesa, Arizona, acquire it from the storage facility in which it lived, and transporting it to Hangar 9 at the Kansas City Downtown Airport for refurbishment. Thus was established the National Airline History Museum, a passion project that grew over the ensuing decades to fill three museum rooms with airline artifacts and ephemera. Inside, visitors mine the rich history of commercial flight as they view early photographs and exchange the latest jokes about airline food. They even have the opportunity to walk through several of the aircraft in the hangar, including a 1941 Douglas DC-3 and a 1952 Martin 404 in addition to the famed Lockheed Constellation.

  • Maze Craze
    The properties of lasers make them useful for lots of things. They're also good for having fun; at Maze Craze, they shoot across a complex arena or serve as triggers in a puzzle. The complex properties of light also contribute to the Midwest's only mirror maze, a colorful course full of possible missteps, projections, and music. Patrons channel their inner spy at the laser maze, where they must crawl, slither, and climb through thin green lasers; tripping one won't hurt, but it will sound an alarm and add time to your total score. Last but never least is laser tag, which outfits combatants with cord-free laser weaponry and vests in a challenging, black-lit arena. Games last 7 minute each, leaving time between to don armor or think of laser-related one liners. See the Maze Craze's FAQ page for more information.
