Short Road Trip to Parma, Ohio for Make Believe Family Fun Center

Make Believe Family Fun Center Parma Ohio Review

Make Believe Family Fun Center is the ultimate indoor center for family fun! They have things to do for everyone – toddlers to adults. I love that my big kids and teens can even have loads of fun at Make Believe Family Fun Center!!

This is a sponsored post.

Make Believe Family Fun Center is packed with fun for everyone including a indoor playground, ropes course, laser tag, bumper cars, mini bowling, and arcade games. Stay for lunch or grab a snack in the cafe.

Stop by for just one or two activities, or buy a pass to pay by the hour(s)!

Ropes Course Laser Tag at Make Believe Family Fun Center

The indoor ropes course is challenging enough for adults and fun for all. My kids, their friends, and I went on the ropes course several times during our visit. Although totally safe and secured by a cable, the course has both easy and difficult maneuvers.  

Walk across a tight rope or floating steps, maneuver around obstacles, walk across bridges, and more. With each visit, we all got a little braver and a little faster on the ropes course. You can even walk over the open-air laser tag area and watch as people below play – they even try shooting their laser guns at you!

This ropes course is so much fun, moms, don’t let the kids have all the fun – they and you will have a better time if you participate too! Dads too!


Spin Zone at Make Believe Family Fun Center

If you like bumper cars, you’ll love the Spin Zone!! Not only do these bumper cars allow kids and adults to bounce and bump into each other, but they also spin!!

Pair that with fun lights and music and you’ve got the ultimate bumper car experience! Don’t worry moms, if you need your bumper car to not spin, they can turn that feature off. However, the kids LOVE the spinning action!!!

There is nothing like a little friendly competition between parents and kids on the bumper cars! This time, if you hit another car, you could make them spin out of control!

Ninja Climbing Wall at Make Believe Family Fun Center

There are three climbing walls to choose from at varying levels of difficulty.

Most can handle the traditional Tetris wall and even the Lego brick wall but the Ninja challenge is difficult! I have two 13 year old boys with me and they couldn’t touch it – neither could the 11 year old girls! It was a tough one but we did witness a teenage girl almost conquer the ninja wall. Kids and adults will love the challenge of these 3 walls – no worries, you’ll be strapped in with a safety harness so even if you don’t get to the top, you won’t fall.

Ballocity at Make Believe Family Fun Center

Ballocity is the ultimate indoor playground!!! This 3-story playground has adventures around every corner and on every level!

The main event happens at the center of the playground where balls explode out of the volcano up 3 stories high! You have the chance to load the volcano and other popping equipment to make the balls fly sky-high. Plus, on the higher levels, load your ball guns to shoot the soft balls at the kids below! It reminds of me an indoor waterpark where kids take aim and shoot water at people below. Throughout the playground, there are many ways to climb up and down the course with platforms, rope walls and bridges, tubes and tunnels, and plenty of slides! There is so much interactive fun inside that your kids will never want to leave!! Intended for kids ages 12 and under. 

Mini Bowling at Make Believe Family Fun Center

During your visit to Make Believe Family Fun Center, make time for a little bowling with their Mini Bowling lanes.

There are 4 mini bowling lanes with mini bowling balls and a shorter lane. Playing a game is quicker and easier for kids than traditional bowling. Plus, you keep your own shoes on! I love that the mini bowling balls are easy enough for little kids to pick up and roll, it is a lot safer! Plus, it is a fun twist for everyone else.  There are TVs with music videos in this area as well as an easy-to-use interactive scoreboard.

Laser Tag at Make Believe Family Fun Center

Laser tag at Make Believe Family Fun Center is amazing fun for kids and adults!

The arena is 2 stories with many obstacles and places to hide.  At the beginning of the game, you’ll decide as a group why game to play – rescue mission, friend vs. foe, last man standing, etc.  We chose red (girls) against blue (boys) team.  The vests and guns light up for lots of in the dark fun and for easy targets. Besides targeting each other, there are additional targets throughout the obstacle course that you can shoot to earn more points!  We had so much fun competing against each other!  The theme of the course is Enchanted Forest, so it was really cool to see neat designs throughout the course and not just plain walls like other laser tag courses. Plus, if you look up, you can see people walking above you on the Ropes Course!!

Arcade at Make Believe Family Fun Center

The arcade is spread throughout the family fun center with one area that has the majority of games. Choose from more than 60 arcade games offering you the chance to earn points! Kids and adults will have loads of fun testing out their skills with video games, interactive games, claw game, basketball shots, and even traditional games. Collect our points and redeem at the end for amazing prizes!! 

Toddler Area at Make Believe Family Fun Center

There is a truly special area just for toddlers. How I wish Make Believe Family Fun Center was around when my kids were toddlers.

They would have LOVED it!  This colorful room looks like a mini-amusement park with colorful decor and safety mats covering the floor, climbing structures, slides, interactive floor music keyboard, and even 2 moving structures.

I was must amazed by the two merry-go-round like structures. Everything in the toddler area is made mini for kids ages 4 and under.  It is an amazing space for little kids where they can explore and have fun without the fear of the big kid area or getting ran over by the big kids! Plus, they keep this area extra-clean since little ones like to put everything in their mouths!

Plus, you’ll have access to an amazing party room with a TV with your child’s name and fun videos. Plus, they have a light show in the party room. Choose from various themes including Teen birthday party, Xtreme Birthday, and Amazing.

Lollipop Bistro

With all the fun you and your family will have playing, recharge with a snack and drink at the Lollipop Bistro. Enjoy a meal of wraps, pizza, burgers, appetizers, salads, wings, or just a snack.They have an impressive menu with something for everyone!

They even have a fun treat called Dragon’s Breath. It is made with liquid nitrogen so when you bite into the crisp balls, it smokes in your mouth.

There is a large area where parents can chill out near the front of the fun center while kids play too.

My kids and their friends had SO much fun at Make Believe Family Fun Center! We can’t wait to go back again. Make plans for your family to go soon – or set up a play date with friends.
