Diversity is the operative word here. Miniature golf, batting cages, a skid-car track and bumper boats are among the entertainments supplementing the center's two arcades, which are stocked with nearly 100 video, pinball and skill games. (Yes, there are prizes.) And, should you manage to work your way through those, the neighboring Bullwinkle's restaurant offers yet another small arcade with games and rides geared toward young children. According to group sales and marketing director Steve White, the 23-year-old center attracts as many as 5,000 children and adults on a weekend day.
Video games reign supreme at the Family Fun Center, and White promises players will find "the hottest games around," including the recently-introduced Dragon's Lair II, a laser disc game, and a state-of-the-art game that features hologram characters that White says are "so lifelike you want to reach out and touch them."
