On cold days, when it’s much too cold to force the kids outside to play we need to be creative when it comes to finding indoor activities that we can all enjoy and that are not hefty on our wallets. We recently visited Fun Haven — what’s this Fun Haven?
Fun Haven is an indoor play park for children, teenagers, and even adults. The park, located in the west end of the City offers a variety of different price packages that are sure to provide an insane amount of fun for almost any budget depending on your choice of attractions. Many of the packages include a $5.00 card for arcade games.
Who doesn’t love bumper cars? It’s so much fun. The music keeps the energy pumping, and everyone was laughing and just having a great time cruising around and crashing into one another.
I wasn’t sure how much I would enjoy laser tag. But I do have to admit that once I figured out how to use my laser gun, I was on fire and had such a blast. The teenagers loved it, even more. I think they just liked “killing” me.
A little space sequestered off to the side of the play park. It’s a mission impossible style mini-game. You race against the clock to make it through the laser beams. This activity could use some updates and with a little work could be a lot of fun. However, the teenagers were just not interested in this one.
The rock wall allows guest to challenge themselves on three very different styles of rock climbing. Both my kids had a grand time testing one another to see who could climb the highest. I, however, was disappointed that the safety harnesses came in few sizes and I was unable to have a try at it.
We didn’t spend too much time in the Jungle Gym. We did run around and slid down a few slides. The area was the perfect size for toddlers and young children to roam around, climb and just all out have a fun time in a safe zone.
Crazy8 (Indoor Roller Coaster)
A major highlight of our visit to Fun Haven was the indoor roller coaster. I have to admit that the thought of even riding on the Crazy 8 terrified me. But, I pulled up my big girl pants and figured if these 5-year-olds can handle it, so can I, right? I’m happy that I braved the roller coaster because it was such a blast and not so scary after all.
There were so many different options and styles of games to play. With teenagers, the arcade card run out of cash fast because their primary focus is to gather as many points as possible for prizes. I have to admit that while the games are a lot of fun, you would have to spend a good chunk of change on decent prizes.
