Grand Island Fun Center Celebrating 25 Years! - May 2019
LASER TAG • GO KARTS • MINI GOLF • WATER WARS • BATTING CAGE • ARCADE
The Grand Island Fun Center, 2660 Grand Island Blvd., turns 25 this year, and has made many improvements over the winter, ready to entertain your families. Owner Dave Glian bought the property in 2013 with his Dad and became sole proprieter in 2016. In the surveying of his clients after last season, the top three comments were improvements to batting cages, food and arcade equipment. Starting inside, there are new ticket and token machines and your favorite classic and new arcade games. There is a new large capacity air fryer to cook wings, fries, pizza logs and more, along with pizza, beverages and ice cream.
The batting cages are top of the line and now feature adjustable height and speed controls in all three cages. Teams and families can rent a cage for 30 or 60 minutes. The 7000 square foot laser tag area is the only outside site in Western New York, and can accomodate up to 20 friends at a time. The 18 hole mini golf features many landmarks from Grand Island and is great fun for young and old. The go cart course is the longest and most interesting track in WNY and the only gas powered carts. The Fun Center also has the only two seater carts, so children at least 36" can be driven by an adult.
Check the website here for hours of operation and you can now purchase your passes online. A Memorial Day weekend special is offering a two-hour pass for $20 (usually $31). Check back to the website and Facebook page for specials and calendar of events.
