Kicks Entertainment

Kick's Entertainment

Yep, this is the place that used to house the Furrows store.

Now it is a combination buffet, banquet hall, party place with jumbo screen television, indoor games including go carts, bumper cars, video games and more.

Here are some photos from our time there this week.

Look carefully at the drivers in this go cart photo.
Is anyone on the phone?

Oh look! He's STILL on the phone!
(and in fourth place)

The bowling alley for kids...and older folks too.
No gutter balls here!
We suspect it is magnetized because if you roll the ball really slow, it will go right down the middle. One boy bounced the ball three times off the bumpers before knocking some pins down.
The bowling was $3 a game. How does that compare to the price of a "grown-up" bowling game?

The "check balance here" machine was a favorite photo op for our group.
It is for checking the monetary balance on your spending cards, but we chose a different interpretation.

The shooting practice game at the back of the building.

I warned you about that.

BTW, if you use a camera flash on this game it triggers every target on the game.
No tickets are issued on this game, but it is (uhm) interesting to watch all the targets do their thing.

Here's a sample of the food at Kicks Entertainment.

Note: I dug out an old camera (9 years old is old in digital years) and used a Nikon Coolpix 950 to take some of these photos. Can you tell?
The food pics and the go cart pics were taken with the ancient camera.
