Funland. Even the name is fun to say. Funland, a family fun center located in McHenry, has been around for as long as I can remember. Open during the warmer months, it is the perfect place for the family to enjoy of bevy of activities. We usually pack the kids in the car and enjoy a full day of fun. I tend to get a little competitive so we generally start with a game of mini-putt putt on their 18 hole miniature golf course. Obstacles include everything from swinging windmills, bridges, and even a rock waterfall. After I have successfully won, we usually head into the arcade. While my boys are fans of the racing car/ motorcycle games, I am more of an old school skee ball girl myself. Other fun activities include the large climbing wall, go karts, bumper cars, and the carousel. You can take a break somewhere in between and go to Deep Creek Pizza located next door. They have awesome pizza, wedgies, and don’t forget the Hershey’s hand dipped ice cream! Can you say “Yum”? It’s definitely a cool place for kids and adults alike! Stop by and check them out the next time you are in the area.
The feeling of Fall is definitely upon us as the temperatures are dropping and the leaves are already beginning to change.
