Are you looking for someplace you can take your family in Denver for a whole day of food and fun while ensuring that everyone has activities they’ll enjoy? That’s exactly what a family entertainment center is for! Family entertainment centers are an evolution of the older pizza+arcade restaurant concept. Those restaurants tended to cater almost exclusively to children, leaving teens and parents little to do. Family entertainment centers are more like a combination of an indoor theme park and restaurant and are designed with attractions for everyone. Family entertainment centers are also popular among adults and can be great for corporate getaways or team-building exercises. It’s a good time for anyone, right here in Denver.  

Common Attractions At Denver Family Entertainment Centers

So what will you find when you visit a family entertainment center? Attractions can vary, but these are some of the most common.


The classic video arcade never truly died, and still lives on at family entertainment centers. You’ll almost always find a selection of new and classic video games, as well as beloved physical games like skeeball, hoops, and UFO catchers. Be sure to collect those points or tickets!

Laser Tag 

Laser tag is the indoor sport that everyone can enjoy – quick to learn, difficult to master. Modern laser tag arenas feature extensive lighting effects, epic soundtracks, and more. It’s like being in a real-life first-person shooter! Bowling Who doesn’t enjoy a good game of bowling every now and then? Introduce your kids to one of the classic indoor sports, or just bring your own buddies for an evening of balls and beers.


Another all-time classic. Sure, there are stand-alone mini-golf courses out there, but family entertainment centers bring you so much more along with the golfing. The putting greens are always fun, with a variety of obstacles and challenges to overcome.

Bumper cars or bumper boats 

Where else can you get in a powered vehicle and ram into other people, without getting in trouble? Bumper-vehicle rides are all-time classics that may never go away, because they’re just so much fun.

Rope Courses 

Looking for a great physical activity for older visitors or corporate groups? Rope courses are perfect. They’re physically demanding, and often in spectacular settings, while keeping you safe the entire time.

Great Food 

Plus, you can’t forget the food! A family entertainment center will definitely serve all the classics: melty pizza, dripping burgers, blistering hot wings, salads, and more. There’s a wide variety of drinks too, from water and sodas to a full stock of adult beverages for older visitors. (Please enjoy responsibly.)
