If you’re looking for a place to host a fun event, check out Wonderfly Arena!
Wonderfly is not just an arena, they have a mobile game business where their activities like laser tag and bubble ball can be brought to you (so cool!) and an athletics branch where they offer things like personal training and bootcamp classes.
But today, I’ll be talking about my experience at the coolest branch (in my opinion): the Wonderfly Arena. This place is 13,000 sq feet of space, and you get it all to yourself. Wonderfly only takes reservations, so you can’t just walk in and pay for activities. This arena is popular with birthday parties and other events like team building and school/camp related events. This is a HUGE space filled with a wide variety of games. Let me give you the rundown of games that we had access to:
- Bubble ball
- Hamster balls
- Nerf gun wars (yes, you read that right)
- Cosmic dodgeball
- Giant connect 4
- Bean bag toss
- VR (virtual reality)
- Video games to your heart’s content
- Archery tag
And they even have laser tag, but that comes in a different package.
There are 3 main packages that they offer: hybrid, deluxe, and platinum. We had the hybrid package which allows 2 hour access to the activities. The time is divided evenly, you spend 1 hour playing the arena field games (like bubble ball, dodgeball, nerf gun war, etc…) and 1 hour playing video games and VR (virtual reality). This package can host 10-20 guests, and it’s $49 per player. The deluxe package is similar to the hybrid, except you get full access to all games for the full 2 hours, so you don’t have to stop one side after an hour. This package can host 10-60 guests, and it’s $79 per player. The biggest package is the platinum package. This gets you 2.5 hours with all the games PLUS laser tag! This also hosts 10-60 guests, and is $99 per player.
When we first walked inside, I was greeted with my blog name on the screen (how cute is that?!?!).
As soon as you walk in, you arrive in the gaming room for video games and VR. The lighting was aesthetic, and there were comfy couches and games of all kinds. It’s honestly such a cool room, if this was how the front part was, I couldn’t wait to see the field!
We were led to the field in the back and it was filled with activities to the MAX! I saw the bubble balls, connect 4, jenga, a putt putt golf area, basketball, and so much more. There is also a seating area with cute string lights and a cool photo op! You are allowed to bring in outside food/drink, but it does cut into your gaming time. They also have a water station (which is definitely needed).
After the tour, we got to choose the type of music genre we wanted to listen to, and got ready to play the first game. We started with bubble ball soccer, we were split into 2 teams and played 3 rounds. You definitely get bumped a few times, lol and by the end of the game, we were all passed out on the floor lol, we clearly had no idea what the night had in store for us. We got to have a quick water break while they set up the next game: dodgeball. After dodgeball, we took another break while they set up the hamster balls, and I think this might have been my favorite activity. You get to jump in these huge balls, and race your opponent down the lane. After that, we did the nerf gun war, they change the field into this battlefield filled with things you can duck and hide behind. The hosts did great with keeping us on track for the next activity, and they made sure that we had time to do everything we wanted. Once our field time game was up, we were brought back inside to the gaming lounge, where we basically chilled for the rest of our time. Some of my friends did the VR experience, while others played Mario Kart and NBA 2K.
Overall, I really enjoyed my time here at Wonderfly! Not only are the activities incredibly fun, but the staff is so welcoming and friendly, they definitely make sure that everyone is having fun. I highly recommend Wonderfly Arena for any events that you have planned in the future.
