Family Fun Center

Treat your kids to an active day of fun at one of two local Family Fun Center locations. From laser tag to the arcade and everything in between, there is plenty of fun at each location.

Edmonds: Channel your inner Nelson Cruz in the batting cages, spin and crash your way around the indoor bumper car track, climb in the Cowbunga Play zone and if you feel the need for speed, the Go Karts are calling your name (age and height restrictions apply). Try your putt-putt skills on the 18-hole pirate-themed mini golf course or soar to new heights on the Max Flight rollercoaster simulator.

Tukwila: Learn the rules of the road in Traffic School, explore the four-level Kidopolis Playland, knock down the pins at Bowlwinkle Lanes or swing for the fences in the batting cages (weather permitting). Choose from one of two 18-hole golf courses: Memory Lane or Arctic Adventure. These themed courses provide a challenge for golfers of all ages. For the Bigs, there is Lazer Xtreme, a competitive laser tag arena filled with music, fog and strobe lights and the XD Theater, a multi-seat 6D motion simulated thrill ride. Go on a Dino Safari, explore a haunted goldmine, or ride the rollercoaster through canyons and caves. Board the Go Karts for a hair-raising ride around the track of hairpins and banked turns (age and height requirements apply).
