Adventure Landing

Today is a great day to go to Adventure Landing with your kids. Every Thursday and Monday is "All You Can Play Day" from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. This means that you pay $8 per person for unlimited mini-golf, admission to the WOW! Factory, and 10 game tokens. They also offer this special on Saturday mornings from 9 a.m. until noon.

There are three different mini-golf courses at Adventure Landing. Golf is usually $5-7 per game, per person. So if you play on two of the courses, you've already gotten your money's worth for each adult on All You Can Play Day. There are fun obstacles on each hole to keep things interesting, but the majority is par two so the kids can keep up.
After a round or two, take a break indoors in the WOW! Factory. Admission is usually $5 per person, so the special pricing on Mondays, Thursdays, and Saturdays is definitely worth it. You walk through a heavy plastic curtain into a three-floored "room" that looks like a factory. There are hundreds of colorful, squishy foam balls everywhere and plenty of ways to shoot them around. Stuff the balls into a suction tube on the first level and launch the balls up high. Go upstairs and load balls into the canons to shoot down below. There are stairs, but there are also plenty of places to climb, plus a three-story twisty slide. This was fun, but I would definitely skip the $5 per person if we were there on a day without the discount.
After exiting the WOW! Factory, who wouldn't be drawn to all the bright lights of the arcade games?  Good thing we had ten tokens each. The tokens are usually 20-25 cents each, depending on how many you purchase. My advice is to go for the games that reward you with tickets, because chances are your kids will want to trade 100 tickets for a 10-cent bouncy ball on the way out. My fellow ROCmomma Aly had taken her son to Adventure Landing and somehow they ended up with hundreds of tickets. She felt they got more per game than at other arcades. Our experience did not match up, and I think it's just a matter of luck.

The kids had fun playing skee ball, Frogger, and just pushing buttons that blink and make noise. My youngest even figured out that if you push enough buttons on Dance Dance Revolution - despite not inserting any tokens - it will play an entire song so you can show off your own moves.

So $5-7 per game of golf, plus $5 for the WOW! Factory admission, and $2.50 in tokens, all for $8 is a really great deal. You can also add on a fee for the batting cages, the indoor ropes course, or the teddy bear factory, but we did not try those out.

Adventure Landing is located at 3340 West Ridge Road in Greece, NY. There is a cafe serving pizza, hot dogs, chicken fingers, cheeseburgers, snacks, desserts, and drinks. You can choose to eat indoors or out; although there is nothing specifically that indicates whether or not you can bring your own food. We went after lunch, so we avoided the meal-issue. The women's restroom has a baby changing table (but I cannot speak for the men's room).

If your kids are about two or older and you're looking for something fun today, check out Adventure Landing. Be sure to Post A Comment and let us know about your experience there. And, as always, thanks for reading.
