Parents, there is a new indoor play venue that opened up near us on just a couple of months ago that I wanted to tell you about. Main Event Entertainment in Atlanta is right below the AMC theatre on Cobb Parkway inside the perimeter and has bowling, laser tag, rock climbing, gravity ropes, an arcade with lots of games for kids and a sports bar (with some happy hour specials) for adults where they can catch a game on TV or play pool while the kids go play. With the weather getting so cold, it’s a great spot for birthday parties or just an indoor play day. The first time we were there was for a birthday party and the boys could run wild and play laser tag several times. You no longer need to be at a party to play, just sign up! They are running a Winter Funpass special that starts at around $15 per session right now which gives you unlimited access to a lot of their activities. I’ve had several friends who have been there at least five times in the last couple weeks and I’ve heard nothing but good things. I actually got to sit at a counter and have snacks and watch a football game while the boys played. Of course they were checking in quite often as they always wanted more money on their play cards!
I wrote a post a while back about all the birthday parties I’ve planned for Chase over the years and I think I’m going to add this one to my list. His birthday is in October so while I usually have warm-weather outdoor options, I also need to keep an indoor option in mind in case it’s chilly and this place covers a pretty broad age range (it’s amazing how fast they grow up and won’t fit in a bouncy house anymore!). So if your kids have an upcoming birthday or just have a lot of energy to burn and not enough square footage in the house to corral them, Main Event is a fun close-by option.
