Gameworks – a geek families Disneyland!

gameworks1Recently GameWorks invited Denver Parent to check out their new North Denver (Northfield) GameWorks facility, so I brought along my two teenage geeks.

I will summarize our experience by saying that we were there for 5 hours and could have been there longer. My kids found so many things to do and games to play that it could gameworks2easily have been a full day of entertainment and it’s not a bad way to spend the day for any family member (gamer or not – although it’s best if you’re a gamer)!

The brand new location has 36,000 square-feet of family-friendly entertainment and dining delivering 365 days of indoor fun for kids of all ages.  The complex features 165 games a two-story Laser Tag arena modeled after League of Legends and The Guardian genres of gaming, a top of the line eSports center, and private rooms – accomodating up to 200 – for the perfect event.

On top of all this fun, their restaurant is good – gameworks5and features unique American cuisine and a wide range of craft beers and cocktails.
