Xtreme Fun Center
A birthday party at Xtreme Fun Center just might be a dream come true for any 10-year-old boy. Our birthday boy certainly had a great time hanging out there with his friends this month!
The moment you step into Xtreme Fun Center, you can tell that it is a great place for upper elementary through junior high kids. Don’t get me wrong – adults have an awesome time too. But with batting cages, dozens of arcade games, and laser tag, no one needs to get bored, even a junior-higher.
Our party started with our terrific hostess, Kaitlyn, helping to set up the reserved tables and giving us all the goodies we needed. As the party guests trickled in, they each received tokens for the batting cages and arcade games. They had a great time playing Dance, Dance Revolution, Skee Ball, all kinds of racing games, and even Deal or No Deal.
Once all of the guests had arrived, it was time to play the first game of Laser Tag. After a brief instruction video, all of the kids (and most of the parents) donned the lightweight vests before heading into the 6,500 square foot multi-level arena. The differences in style were apparent almost immediately. Some guests chose to play strategically – going after other team’s “bases” or defending their own – while others just ran around the arena shooting anyone they encountered. But regardless of skill level, everyone had a lot of fun. The birthday boy’s preschool-age sister was a little intimidated during the first laser tag game. But during the second game, Kaitlyn brought out a toddler-sized laser gun for her to use, and even she got into the action!
In between our two games of laser tag, everyone enjoyed pizza and soda from nearby Sardo’s Pizza. Pepperoni may have been the most popular among the kids, but the moms at the party especially enjoyed the gourmet Pizza Bianca – with ricotta, mozzarella, parmesan and fresh basil, it was definitely worth the calories!
After the final game of laser tag, it was time to sing to the birthday boy and enjoy some birthday cake. Then Kaitlyn cleaned up the mess while the guests went back out to the arcade and the batting cages to use up all of the remaining tokens. After the tokens were gone, it was time to redeem all of the tickets for prizes and head home after an exciting and extremely fun-filled afternoon at a place that definitely lives up to its name.
