When I think of play places, I don’t really think about good food… but Palava Family Entertainment Center & Restaurant has really good food!
They make pizza in their stone oven and make salads, sandwiches, paninis and baked potatoes to order. And my kids were pretty pleased that you eat in the middle of the play area with the 2-level Mayan themed laser tag arena, 3D black light mini golf, a HUGE 4-level play structure, a toddler play area and a small arcade.
Last week I let each of my big kids pick something special to do. The 7 year old picked laser tag at Palava… so off we went on a weeknight.
We ordered our food and played while we waited. You can play in the play structure or at mini golf any time. The laser tag games start every 20 minutes or so… and an announcement is made so you don’t miss them.
The laser tag area is pretty elaborate. There are two stories and lots of places to hide. Everyone wears a vest and is assigned a name… and people outside the game can watch the status on the screen outside. (The display like text messages, no video.)
I played a couple of games for laser tag and I had fun too!
