On a recent trip to Colorado, we spent a fun family evening at Denver GameWorks.
It took a few tries for us to figure out how to use the game cards we’d been assigned in lieu of tokens, but once we got the hang of it, we liked that system much better, as it meant having less to cart around and keep up with .
This place had a wide variety of games, including several different versions of pinball (with which my husband impressed us all with his quick reflexes and unsurpassed skill.
Other family favorites included Connect Four, KungFu Panda Punch, Wheel of Fortune, and skeetball. There was something there for everyone.
In addition to arcade games, we also had photo booths and air hockey tables. Our little guys really especially enjoyed those!
However, the highlight of our visit was playing G-Force Laser Tag. The referee who helped us suit up for our game told us that GameWorks’ laser tag was the best we’d ever play — and he wasn’t exaggerating.
Their two-story course made it extra challenging. Also, players not only earned points for shooting members of the opposing team, but also for searching, finding, and shooting the other team’s base.
Of all the fun things we did during our trip to Denver, this was the only one the kids begged to go back and do a second time before we flew home.
