During the winter months it’s sometimes necessary to escape the cold and recreate indoors. Though Idaho is known for freezing winter weather, this is no reason to despair. Between fun outdoor activities like skiing and snowboarding and warm indoor recreational facilities, there is plenty of excitement to be found even when the weather outside is frightful.


Mini golf, rock climbing, an arcade, a playground and the “Blast Zone” make this location the perfect spot for your child’s next birthday party or a way to have fun indoors during the winter months. The location serves food, drinks and everything you need for a good time, including affordable prices.
