School has officially begun. You have marked everything off of your children’s massive supply list, successfully packed nutritious lunches, attended school events, and somehow have kept your sanity. Back to school season can be overwhelming for children and parents. Luckily, Manassas, Virginia has plenty of family-friendly activities to ease the stress and get some serious bonding done.
Escape Room Herndon
There is a rather new trend happening that is a lot of fun for older kids, teens, and adults. Prepare to get locked in a room and have to solve puzzles and find clues to regain your freedom at Escape Room Herndon. They have really exciting themed rooms with different decorations and games. Each room is scored on a 10-point scale for difficulty, so you can get an idea of what to expect. Reservations can be made online.
Autobahn Indoor Speedway
If your crew has a love of combustion and a need for speed, then the Autobahn Indoor Speedway in Manassas is for you. As the temperatures begin to dip in anticipation of fall, you can still go-kart to your heart’s delight indoors in any weather. Ages 8 and up can participate, and there are even special carts just for the younger crowd. The racetrack is located conveniently in the Manassas Mall, which is always another great place to spend a day with the kids.
Laser Tag Manassas
Are your kids super competitive? If so, then Laser Tag Manassas may just be the answer for you. The 5,000-square foot arena is lit with black lights and filled with great places to hide while you scope out your target. It is a safe, exciting activity for ages 5 and up. Make it extra interesting by splitting your family into different teams to really bring out their competitive side.
Many parents used to love roller skating in their younger days. It was the place to see and be seen. Bring back that awesome nostalgia – while telling some stories about when you used to skate – by taking the kids to Skate-N-Fun Zone. The family can skate to great music with the lights low, play laser tag, and those too young to skate can enjoy climbing in the Play Zone (which is free for children under 48″). There’s something here for everyone!
There’s no denying that Manassas has plenty of fun activities for you and your kids. All you have to do is pick which one sounds most appealing, or better yet, try all of them one by one. It’ll give everyone something to look forward to, especially on those long, hard days filled with homework and after school activities.
Make sure you head to Miller Toyota the next time you need service on your vehicle or are in the market for a new car, truck, or SUV.
