Today, Derek, Shawn and myself spent the morning living it up at American Fun Center in Evans. A wise man I know once said, “Go karts, milkshakes and water slides are what make life worth living.” I’m pretty sure he was right.

We sped around the go-kart track, playing a little mini golf, soaked each other in the bumper boats and even took some time to play a little Modern Warfare 3 in their XBox gaming room. Check out some of our photos and we’ll have some video on our ‘Mario Go Kart” race coming soon.

We had an absolute blast today! (And if you’re wondering, “Why the heck are they dressed up as Mario, Luigi and Princess Toadstool?”…we’ll have the answer for you soon.)

Growing up, my favorite thing in the world was to go to fun centers like this. Sadly they seem to have dwindled in the past decade or two but the new American Fun Center lets your inner-kid shine, or your actual kids too.

On top of the go karts, bumper boats, mini golf and XBox game room, American Fun Center has an arcade and a food/snack bar and a Jr. go kart track, as well as a batting cage in the works. Pricing is not bad at all with activities ranging from $3-$8 and $20 unlimited ride passes. (Mondays you can get unlimited ride passes for just $10!) This place is another great option in Northern Colorado for birthdays, team building events, family reunions, or just as an excuse to go have some fun.And heck, they’re open until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays for a little late night fun.

American Fun Center is located at 1112 40th Street in Evans (Just south of Greeley, off of Highway 85, between 40th and 42nd streets).

As if you needed another excuse to check this place out, our sister station, K99, will be out there Sunday Aug. 12th 2:30-4:00 PM giving away free Ronnie Dunn tickets.

And on August 16th be sure to join, K99 at the Budweiser Events Center along with Spradley Barr Ford and American Fun Center for the Ronnie Dunn Block Party!  They’ll have food, drinks, live music and your chance at winning $25,000 towards the purchase of a new Ford vehicle at Spradley Barr Ford of Ft. Collins and Greeley!
