Located in a busy major mall, this 5,800 square footage Fun Zone is primarily set up to provide fun rides and games for kids of all ages: young children with their families and for older children on their own or with friends. This mall fun zone has become a destination in-and-of-itself for these families and for the older kids who come to hang out with the optional purchase of an 'Unlimited Games All-Day Pass' for $25 each.
There is also a party room to rent for birthday parties.
Some of the main attractions are the paddle boat ride in which young children on their own or with someone older, can operate the fun paddle boat. In the tube roller ride, one or two kids climb into a giant plastic tube roller that can be rolled and maneuvered around in a big pool of water by the person(s) inside the tube.
There are also numerous games and activities in the kid's corner, for example: crane games where you win prizes, race car games, candy crane machines, air hockey tables, a large assortment of video games, a photo booth, the jaw-breaker machine, turkey shoot game. And for the parents who dropped off their children while they shopped. Upon their return there are vibrating full-body massage lounge chairs for rent while they watch their children finish up their day of play at the fun zone.
Most of the games and crane games are provided, filled, and maintained by an outside vendor.
