Find entertainment for all ages at Kingston’s newly opened ‘The Fun Zone’

Attention all gamers, thrill-seekers, kids, and kids at heart! Kingston’s newest centre for fun and activity for those of all ages is now open, seven days a week!

After the COVID-19 pandemic saw the closure of many of Kingston’s family-friendly activity centres and entertainment venues, one west end hub is filling that void with all sorts of fun activities, and stepping it up with some of the latest and most cutting-edge features never before seen in the Limestone City.

The Fun Zone, located at 541 Days Road – an address that may be familiar with those who used to frequent the now-closed Playtrium – is now open to the public seven days a week, offering a smorgasbord of ways to entertain yourself, your family, and your friends. With 3,000 square feet and two levels of soft play, including slides, basketball court, and climbers, The Fun Zone is the ideal place for kids to burn off excess energy, while staying active in a safe environment. But there is more inside the doors of The Fun Zone that will tempt those at any age, including laser tag, virtual reality, an arcade with simulators, hands-on games, and more.

Grab some family or friends and let the battle commence! Once you’re suited up in your laser tag armour at The Fun Zone, you’ll take to the brand new arena, fully equipped for cutting-edge laser tag.

Laser tag allows up to 20 players to wage virtual war, using infrared-emitting light beams to tag other players through the infrared-sensitive device on their armour and knock them out of the game. The new space at The Fun Zone offers limitless scenarios to carry out the game in exciting fun that will leave everyone engaged in laughter and high-paced activity.

Virtual Reality

Virtual Reality or VR gaming is the newest and most submersing video game experience on the planet. Strap on a pair of VR goggles, and step into an alternate reality – one where the game is afoot, and action takes over right away.

The brand new virtual reality offerings at The Fun Zone are both thrilling and hilarious, as those who play attempt to acclimatize to a new environment, all while trying their wits at a new game!

Arcade, Games, and Simulation
