Start With A Game or Two At Splitsville Burlington
Of course, we had to kick off our family fun night with some bowling. Splitsville is home to 24 bowling lanes and they offer bumpers and glow-in-the-dark bowling in the evenings and on weekends. We love glow bowling! And I also love bumpers – ha! Nothing helps to add a few pins to my score like those bumpers.
Every lane can opt to activate its lane bumpers. Each lane also had digital scoring to make your play easier. We found lots of lighter balls for our kids to use. The little ones in the lane beside us loved using the ball ramp to help get their ball down the lane. Music plays so you can dance your way to a strike – or turkey!
Your Next Mission is… Laser Tag!
Laser tag is one of those activities – like bowling – where you don’t have to be great at it to have a fantastic time. It gets your heart pumping and you’re just on edge enough that it’s exciting and not scary haha! My kids are much better than me, but their Dad is our family’s king of laser tag. The man just doesn’t miss a shot! How do we know he’s so good? You get a printout of your stats at the end of your mission. It’s fun to see who hit more targets and who didn’t (me).
The laser tag arena at Splitsville Bowling in Burlington is called “City of Ruins “and it is 2 stories tall. It looks like a post-apocalyptic wasteland complete with toxic waste signs and rubble. The arena is lit with backlights so everything glows. Don’t make the mistake I did and wear a white shirt! You can play in multiple modes and compete in teams for every person for themselves. Both ways are super fun, especially when it’s grownups against the kids.
We’ve also done laser tag in Burlington at Splitsville as a group date night activity. We did women vs. men and couples teams. I definitely benefitted from Matt’s laser tag skills! It’s also perfect for birthday parties. You can choose to only do laser tag, or add it to your bowling party.
Arcade Play at Splitsville Burlington
The state-of-the-art arcade at Splitsville Burlington is a favourite for my gamers. They love the skill games and the shooting games. We always go home with a massive ball or something else from the ticket redemption centre. You can come in and play at the arcade even if you don’t bowl or play a round of laser tag. The arcade cards can be purchased on their own, or you can add cards to your birthday party package. The kids always love finishing off an epic party with some arcade play.
Refuel at Splitsville’s Restaurant
All that bowling and laser tag will make you hungry and Splitsville Burlington has a great restaurant to feed your entire group. They have a full menu that includes everything your kids will love, from burgers to chicken fingers to pizza. If you are dining with adults, be sure to check out their platters for sharing, delish appetisers and a full drink menu and beer on tap.
