Boomers, located on Airport Road, is a park that consists of a huge game room, batting cages, rock climbing wall, laser tag, bumper boats, gokarts, a miniature golf course and a
café with a variety of meals and snacks.
People of all ages go to Boomers for family fun or to spend time with friends in an enjoyable environment in which everyone becomes.
“Boomers is awesome because it’s a place where guys and girls of all ages can go and have fun with their friends and family,” said Andrew Versace, junior. “They have something for everyone to enjoy.”
Inside the game room, there is a great selection of virtual games including air
hockey, horseracing, snowboarding, big time sports and the redemption games
to win tickets and claim awesome prizes at the expansive redemption center.
The miniature golf has some cool challenges on the way and the many different features makes it a pleasant place to play and relax.
Even though the park is a family place, it is also one of the favorite places of college students.
“Boomers is really fun, especially if you’re looking for something to do that doesn’t involve a typical college night,” said Jocelyn Margarette, senior. “It’s like Chuck E. Cheese’s; but the college version.”
The gokarts are a crowd favorite, especially for college students who race each other and have a blast.
The laser tag is a thrilling experience where everyone is the hunter and the one to be hunted as soon as they enter the black light battlefield. At the end of the game the teams can check their scores and see who the winning team was and who had the most shots. There were rumors going on about the closing of the park, but they turned out to be false. Boomers is improving the attractions but it is not closing any time soon.
The park is open from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. from Sunday to Thursday, and from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
