In our weekly countdown we are taking a ride down a long driveway off Robbins Lane, ending at the border of Syosset and Jericho.
Located in an industrial park, directly behind , you will find the brand new location of Active Kidz. Moving three months ago from their former location in East Hills, they have now landed in our area with tons more fun in an enormous space.
Speaking of space, when you venture into their 4,500 square foot state-of-the-art laser tag arena you feel like you are on a mission to mars. 3-D designs painted by an Australian artist who specializes in creating these rooms, add to the space-age elements. Beware, mechanical droids that watch over the planet can strike at any time. And get ready, they are launching laser tag leagues for kids and adults.
Make sure to check out the Lazer Frenzy game, think Tom Cruise in Mission Impossible stealthily crossing a room avoiding a tangled web of beams.
Besides their now bigger and better four level mesh covered adventure maze, they have three huge inflatables in the next room for additional active play.
Heading towards the back, is a safely enclosed toddler interactive center with a pirate ship for pre-school children, ages four and under.
Nearby are two rock climbing walls for all skill levels and the 20-foot wall has an automatic belay system.
Across from the wall is a Cannonball Blast room; test your accuracy by hitting targets with Nerf balls. If a battlefield is not what you are after this room cleverly converts to a glow-in-the-dark dance studio.
Near the entrance and across from the snack bar is an arcade where you can redeem your tickets for fun prizes.
They host birthday parties starting at age one, offering packages and several extras. You will also find lots of party rooms painted with lively murals.
But Active Kidz is not just about birthday parties, it's a great place to go to on dreary or rainy days or just for some family together time. For information about open play times check the events calendar on the website. Some good deals can also be found by clicking on the "specials" tab.
