These Entertainment Centers Have Something For Everyone in the Family
In the Tualatin Valley there are so many family-friendly activities and sports designed for kids of all ages, the question is not “What are we going to do?” but, “How can we fit it all in?” Here are some ideas:
Family Fun Center and Bullwinkle’s Restaurant offers six acres of fun in Wilsonville. This amusement park has miniature golf, go-karts, laser tag, bumper boats, a 28-foot rock wall, batting cages, a bungee sling shot, more than 150 arcade games, a cyber coaster, Kidopolis Playland–and a full-service restaurant and snack bar. The facilities are open year-round.
Another big attraction is “Oregon’s Largest Jungle Gym” at Safari Sam’s in Sherwood, complete with a jungle gym, mini golf and arcade.
Big Al’s in Beaverton is massive, and a few of its contents include: bowling lanes–with cosmic bowling during the evenings–a 7,000 sq. ft. arcade, pool tables, and a stadium-style, family-friendly sports bar and restaurant with jumbotron and plasma TVs.
John’s Incredible Pizza Company in Beaverton boasts indoor rides (including bumper cars!) as well as a pizza/salad/soup/pasta/dessert buffet with several themed dining rooms, toon time theatre, and lots of arcade games with prizes. Also in Beaverton, Pietro’s Pizza is a pirate-themed pizza place for all ages and has laser tag and a black-light, 3D miniature golf course.
Sky High Sports in Tigard has a slogan: “Are you ready to bounce off the walls?” because inside this venue, the walls are for bouncing. Visitors can drop in and “free-bounce” off the walls (supervision is included) or join in an activity such as trampoline dodgeball.
In Hillsboro, kids can have it all at Out of this World Pizza and Play, where the space-themed atmosphere offers inflatable and rigid structures, as well as miniscooters and a rock-climbing wall. Both the pizza and play are suitable for kids of all ages.
Be sure to explore the additional entertainment centers throughout the Tualatin Valley, for a fun-filled, laughter-inducing family getaway.
