Scene75 in Dayton, Ohio, knows how to do things big. Besides being America’s largest indoor entertainment center, they have the largest multi-level laser tag arena in the tri-state, and the first gaming theater in the country.
You’re kids will think they’ve gone to heaven.
My kids were immediately drawn to the Chaos Room. The first gaming theater in the country, the Chaos Room combines twelve 15-foot HD screens, plush theater seating, and high performance audio to create an immersive 360-degree gaming environment. Depending on which game you choose from their library of Wii, Xbox, and PS3 titles, up to 16 people can play against each other at a time. I thought my teenager might never leave that room, but there’s so much more to do, he couldn’t help but explore.
Take the 4D motion theater for example. My kids love those 4D rides, but they make me a bit nauseous. I watched them on a screen, which is really hysterical because I couldn’t see the movie they were reacting to.
You can easily spend a full day at Scene75 with all these attractions:
- Go for a bounce in the Big Bad Bounce arena which features 20,000 square feet of inflatables
- Crawl and weave your way through the Lazer Frenzy
- Play Blacklight Mini Golf (Route 66-themed – I loved that!)
- Race Go-Karts
- Shoot-it-out in Laser Tag
- Bump it up with their unique spin-zone bumper cars
- Get a strike mini-bowling
Not just for kids, Scene75 is a great place for corporate events, parties, sport teams, reunions, ladies night out, and more. There’s also outdoor fun in the summer with their sand volleyball and bocce ball courts.
While plenty of adults eagerly partake of the fun at Scene75, there are also several places to sit and (try to) relax if gaming is not your scene. Small tables and chairs flank many attractions. The Center Bar – more or less in the center of the action – is a good place to partake of an adult beverage while the kids go nuts. Radar’s Bar & Grill has a sports bar feel with its projection TVs and sports ticker, but it’s also closed off from the arcade by windows so you can relax at a cozy table and enjoy fantastic food and drink at a slightly lower decibel level. Just beware that your kids will soon be running in out of breath, hair matted with sweat and eyes wide with adrenaline, begging you to load more money on their game cards.
