Fun for Youth and Teens at Roo’s Playhouse in the Greenwood Mall
Disclosure: Our family received a pass for these activities at Roo’s Playhouse in the Greenwood Mall in exchange for this blog post. The things we do in the name of research! All opinions are our own.
When the boys were little, we spent a LOT of time at Roo’s Playhouse in the Greenwood Mall.
Once they were in school and were a bit older, we stopped going as frequently, until we recently realized, there are still a lot of things for youth and teens to do at Roo’s Playhouse! We decided to go check it out!
Arcade and Pool
Roo’s Playhouse has a lot of activities you can’t find anywhere else in the Valley, starting with arcade games.
Kids and teens love arcade games.
You might need to set some monetary or time limits here, but there’s no doubt, you can easily spend a lot of time here!
There is also a pool table, which is great because youth aren’t often allowed in many establishments that have pool tables!
EyePlay Virtual Playground
NEW to Roo’s Playhouse is the EyePlay virtual playground.
- Interactive Virtual Playground – Great Fun for all ages• Multiple players with a wide variety of fun and active games• Kids can play a giant xylophone, balloon pop, ice hockey and so much more.
Basically, it is a series of games that flash on the floor, changing after a 2 minute rotation, so there is a lot of time to try many different games.
The kids had a blast playing, and then figuring out how to cheat the system 🙂 Listen to them laugh!
Watch here how it works!
They loved the soccer game the most.
Roo’s Playhouse is the only place in the Valley that offers laser tag.
We love this course because it has 2 floors, and lots of room to run and hide.
Besides, there is something cathartic about running through the course with a laser tag gun chasing down your husband and kids!
Some parents might have issues with laser tag because of the guns.
But, we love the game, and think it’s one of the most fun things to do as a family!
Roo’s Playhouse also offers a league night to play laser tag, with options for a variety of different games to try in the course.
Although the boys are now 9, 11, they still wanted to go into the main part of Roo’s Playhouse to see the toys and activities. We made sure they weren’t too big or old to use the equipment, and they weren’t! They couldn’t go on the climbing frame/ballroom, but everything else they could!
It was fun watching them creatively play again, like old times, and before screens became the main form of entertainment.
Costs are always subject to change, but right now, they have a great special on for $10/person you get unlimited time at the EyePlay virtual reality playground and 15 minutes of laser tag, plus entrance to the main playground!
That sounds like a fun afternoon out!
So, although you might be thinking your kids are too old to hang out at Roo’s Playhouse in the Greenwood Mall, think twice.
