Scandia offers fun for all ages
Never underestimate the importance of having fun.
Scandia Family Fun Center is a popular Fairfield destination that prides itself on being a place to have fun, whether it is for children celebrating a birthday party, a family building memories, or group and corporate events. After all, even adults need to let loose and have fun and at Scandia, there is something for the inner child in everyone.
Scandia is home to not just one but two award winning miniature golf courses that feature ponds, streams, fountains and beautiful gardens. Both of the 18-hole courses include a variety of obstacles to overcome including the majestic Scandinavian castle that overlooks both courses. The courses are designed for both day and night play. In the evenings, the courses are illuminated with an array of colorful lighting making it a wonder-filled sight for children - and adults too.
Other popular outdoor activities include Waterbugs, a variation of bumper cars but in the water, Lil Indy Raceway and the batting cages, perfect for baseball or softball enthusiasts.
Waterbugs is a fun, wet and exciting attraction and is open to anyone over the age of 3. A child must be at least 44 inches tall to drive a waterbug, but children over 3 years old who are not yet 44 inches can ride with an adult. As Scandia points out on its website, "if you don't get wet, you don't have fun, so get wet, get wild and have a wonderful time."
Meanwhile, the Lil Indy Raceway is a great place for racing fans who have a need for speed. If you are over 58 inches tall and like to live in the fast lane, come try your skill on the expertly designed racetrack. The lushly-landscaped surroundings make driving at any speed a joy. Double seat cars are available for those whose height, (under 58 inches but over 40 inches) limits them to experience the race from the passenger seat, with an adult driver.
If you need a break from the sun - or the cold, depending on the time of year - step inside Scandia and experience the grand arcade, lasertag, where you can team up with up to 25 other players and battle in a futuristic space station, and Clubhouse for Kids, which features over three full levels of climbable, slideable, jumpable, crawlable, walkable, padded playspace.
Scandia’s grand arcade has over 200 games to choose from, from the classics to the cutting edge of video technology, plus pinball and a huge selection of prize redemption games. The arcade can keep any game enthusiast busy for hours. There is truly something for everyone. And if you get hungry, stop at the The Copenhagen Café for a snack or meal.
