Weekender: Frisco Family Fun
From Frisco Fire Safety Town to Urban Air Trampoline Park, Frisco is heaven for kids. Here are our top picks for entertainment the whole family will love, all located right here in Frisco.
Frisco Fire Safety Town: On Safety Event nights in the spring and summer, kids will love tooling around Safety Town, a mini version of Frisco incorporating Frisco landmarks, working traffic and crosswalk signals and a railroad crossing. They can take a class on vehicle safety, then fasten their seatbelts and cruise around Safety Town in a battery-powered mini Jeep, or strap on a helmet and pedal around Town after a lesson on bike safety. Inside, Fire Safety Town features an interactive fire engine and model home designed to help children learn about fire and weather hazards. Fire Safety Town is located at and run by the Frisco Fire Department, and admission is free.
Pole Position Raceway: Kids and adults alike will get a rush from zooming around in electric go-karts at this quarter-mile indoor racetrack. Children 48” or taller can drive kids’ karts, while adults rev up full-size versions that can reach speeds of up to 45 miles per hour. You can even race each other, since lap times are shown in real time on projector screens. The action is all indoors, so hot or cold weather is never an issue, and since the karts are electric, there are no fumes. The raceway is open daily.
Strikz: With 20 lanes in the main area and 12 more in a private bowling room available for special events, Strikz scores with bowling fans of all ages. Strikz also offers an arcade and laser tag featuring blacklit, foggy hallways and thumping music.
Jump!Zone: Kids ages 2 to 12 will leap at the chance to play at this indoor inflatable party and play center. With bouncers, slides and moonwalks, plus free all-you-can-play arcade games with paid admission, there’s plenty to keep kids entertained. There’s even a toddler play area and toddler inflatable for tots. Book a party or special event at Jump!Zone or check it out on open play days.
Main Event: Between bowling and glow-in-the-dark miniature golf, the whole family will have a ball at the Main Event. Add a gravity ropes obstacle course a dozen feet off the ground, multilevel laser tag, a karaoke room and arcade games and it’s a sure win.
Frisco Water Park: Get your feet wet at Frisco Water Park, promising a mat racer slide, two more fast-moving water slides, an interactive water playground with three slides and a huge dump bucket, a lazy river for tubing, an interactive play structure for small children with two water slides and a water tower that periodically showers kids with a downpour and a giant pool. Frisco Water Park is open all summer and admission is only $6 for kids and $8 for adults.
Urban Air Trampoline Park: This indoor trampoline center promises fun for all ages. Attractions include trampoline dodgeball, trampoline basketball, a foam pit -- even fitness classes! There’s a kids’ area for children 7 and under and special toddler-only sessions on dedicated mornings during the school year.
Canyons Climbing Gym: Catering to climbers of every level, Canyons offers almost 100 climbing routes, including five auto-belay stations, which allow you to climb without a partner, and 80 boulder routes, which are smaller climbs without ropes. Kids who weigh at least 30 pounds -- the minimum to wear a harness -- are welcome to climb, though if they’re under 13, they must be accompanied by an adult. Canyons also offers lessons teaching beginner climbing and belaying (safeguarding the rope for a partner).
iFLY: Get the sensation of skydiving without jumping out of a plane! An indoor wind tunnel delivers the feeling of flying and floating through the air -- without any parachute or feeling of falling. Even three-year-olds can do it! Every flight includes an instructor to accompany you throughout the experience.
