Remember having fun at Chuck E. Cheese’s as a kid? Whack-A-Mole, Skeeball, video games… ah, those were good times. Now that you’re all grown up, I don’t blame you for cringing at the thought of heading back there again, but that doesn’t mean the fun times are over—you just need to find an entertainment venue designed for grown ups. Thankfully, there are three in the Orlando area.
Firkin & Kegler
Located east of Orlando in Waterford Lakes, this two-level mega entertainment complex houses a full restaurant with a pub grub menu, billiards, golf simulator, arcade, and 32 state-of-the-art bowling lanes. There’s also a nightclub, sports lounge, and outdoor patio seating.
Besides being the largest bowling center in the Southeast (with 80 lanes) Boardwalk Bowl houses an arcade, Glow-in-the-Dark mini golf, as well as Bonkerz Comedy Club and Coasters Sports Bar.
Dave and Buster’s
This colossal 40,236-square-foot space on I-Drive boasts more than 170 different games including Whack-A-Mole, Skeeball, tons of race games, and a big screen TV version of Fruit Ninja. It can get pretty crowed on weekends so plan on a midweek visit to this entertainment hub.
