Where are we going today?
FunPlex Fun Park has so many things for you and your family to enjoy, your biggest problem will be deciding what to do first!
In case you need a head start and think about it on the drive there, here are some hints as to what you are about to encounter:
Ever wanted to imagine yourself in the pit spot ready to get back out on the track again? The Go-Kart Speedway is 1/8 mile of racetrack complete with tricky hills and windy curves for you to tackle! For those adventurous kids over 54", you and up to 11 other karting enthusiasts can navigate up to 20 laps at a time! They also have double seated cars if anyone over 16 wants to take a friend - double the fun! Or double trouble...we will see!
You might want to give 18 holes in the Mystic Lagoon miniature golf course a go! Try and navigate and conquer old ship wrecks, alligators, twists, turns, and obstacles to try and make your way through the course!
Arrr there be younger kids in the midst! Well little pirates, come this way and enjoy Captain Hooks' House of Fun! Kids from 2 - 7 can crawl and tunnel through the fun tube into a super fun (and maybe ticklish) ball pit, where they have to try and climb the rope ladder if they want to slide down to the exit! At least it's not walking the plank...we shudder to think!
The new addition to this pay and play park is the Spider Mountain Slide - kids of any ages, and yes parents you can too, enjoy this 30 foot tower featuring a maze of spider webs! (Don't worry, they are elastic!). When you get the top you get to enjoy a fun filled ride down the huge spiral slide!
There are also bungee trampolines, fun and challenging rock climbing, and super bump bumper boats!
So...what'll it be first! (and we haven't even told you everything!)

Fun, amusing little park. Great for children and teenagers. I am 26 and I had fun playing putt putt and cruising the go karts. Batting cages are always fun but their fastest pitch is 70 I believe. Still overall a great place to spend your day with the kids.

Haven't been in 15 years,thought it would be fun to bring my daughter since I had such great memories of it . It was terrible! The greens were all ripped, the holes were not level, we even lost all the balls on hole 17, since the tunnel was broken. I would not take my family there again.

AWESOME AND FUN I LOVE THIS PLACE I WENT FOR ICE CREAM AND AFTER WE WENT THERE SO THAT DAY WAS THE BEST DAY EVER.

The mini golf gets old after a while, but for the first few times, it's fun, and maybe if you don't go all the time. Very nice staff as well. Batting cages and go carts, too.
