The Funspot Family Entertainment Center in Weirs Beach has always been the on the “hot list” for kids birthday parties. Besides having the distinction of being the largest arcade in the world, with three floors of fun, Funspot now has a Party Room, with seating up to a hundred, that is totally free of charge.
Bestowed with the “Largest Arcade” title by the Guinness Book of World Records, Funspot has over 500 video games, kiddie games and rides, ten pin and candlepin bowling, skee-ball, redemption games, simulated indoor golf as well as an indoor retro mini-golf course and the world’s largest collection of classic video and pinball games in their Classic Arcade Museum.
“We always love to see a group come to Funspot to celebrate a special occasion,” said Funspot owner and General Manager Bob Lawton. “We realize the expense and work it is to plan an event, no matter what size, so we wanted to take some of that stress out of what is supposed to be fun. Just come in, set up and have a ball.”
Parties can also bring in their own cake, ice cream and decorations. Though outside food is not allowed, Funspot’s Braggin’ Dragon Restaurant offers a great selection of pizza, hot dogs, chicken fingers and other items.
Besides birthday parties the Party Room can also be used for any other group get togethers like award ceremonies, family reunions, sports teams gatherings, scout troops, church groups and more. There is also a stage, podium and speaker systems available for use free of charge. It’s just asked that you call ahead with special requirements.
Reservations for the Party Room are required on Saturday and Sunday while no reservation is needed Monday through Friday and is available on a first come, first served basis. The staff at Funspot only asks that you clean your own area when you’re done to make it easier for the next group.
For the 21 and older crowd, Funspot’s D.A. Long Tavern has a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere that can accommodate smaller groups. The D.A . Long Tavern has a full bar, nightly drink specials, pizza and appetizers available.
