After a busy summer, the Xtreme Adventures Family Fun Center in Lutz is adjusting to changing schedules that accompany the return of students to school.
“Summer was great,” said regional manager Leila Kroll. “September seems to be a little slower with the start of school. So we try to let people know about our fundraisers that we do for the schools, youth group, athletic club and still have fun.”
Opened in June 2009, Xtreme Adventures features a state-of-the art, 6000-square-foot, two-level laser tag arena where customers can play up to three games. Pricing for a single game is $8, two for $14 and three for $19. Wednesday and Thursday special features unlimited play from 4-10 p.m. for $15. Friday’s special includes unlimited play from 4-11 p.m. for $25.
According to Kroll, laser tag is the most popular among the adults during corporate events. The facility also offers an array of food and drinks (including a bar) similar to other franchises like Gameworks and Dave & Busters. Complementing laser tag is laser frenzy, a unique timed obstacle course where score is rewarded on speed and precision. The attraction costs $3 a game.
Kroll describes the experience like Mission: Impossible.
“When you go into the room, lasers pop up everywhere and you kind of have to crawl, duck and dive in between them,” Kroll said.
Other prominent attractions at the facility include Hwy 66 Bowling for younger kids with smaller lanes and smaller/lighter balls, which Kroll describes as “miniature bowling.” There’s also the Rock, where people can take the challenge of scaling up a wall. Both are $3 a game.
Xtreme Adventures also boasts a huge arcade facility full of parlor games, shooters and classics.
“We have a lot of amenities,” Kroll said. “There are a lot of different things around. I think people need variety.”
