Frankie's Fun Park

What it is: Frankie's Fun Park is a great indoor and outdoor park.  They have many outdoor activities including go-karts, min-golf, batting cages and rides.  The indoor activities include a giant arcade and indoor playground, rides, laser tag and restaurants. 

What we liked:  With our 3 year old son we enjoyed roller ball in the arcade (like bowling but with a small ball) and a mini-basketball game just right for his size.  We also enjoyed the bumper boats outside but you must be 38 inches to ride them as a passenger.  There was plenty to do for all ages but it is geared more toward kids 3 or 4 years old and up.    They have a great card system set up where you can load money on a card and pay for everything that way, including food.  It makes it a lot easier than tokens.  Since the area is so large it didn't feel crowded even on a weekend.

What we would change:  It was a little hot for the outdoor activities and most of the indoor and outdoor activities are geared more toward older kids including the indoor playground.  It would be nice if they had a few activities for the younger ones.
