My twin boys Steven and Skylar couldn’t be any different. Steven is a bookworm who solves geometric equations for fun, while Skylar keeps himself in high energy playing every sport from basketball to archery. For their 12th birthday I wanted them to be able to do something together that they could both enjoy. Of course there was no debate when I suggested FLIPnOUT Fun centers.
“Let’s do laser tag!” Steven exclaimed.
“I want to play 3-D dodgeball,” Skylar pleaded.
The boys were about to start arguing when I reassured them that we would do both. I checked out FLIPnOUT’s birthday package and learned that I could split my boys’ party between jumping and laser tag. Each of my sons would be able to play their favorite sport for their birthday. While the boys cheered excitedly I called FLIPnOUT and finalized our reservation.
FLIPnOUT made this double trouble birthday a blast. On the day of the party, the staff reserved us our own party room where all the kids could meet before setting up for the games. FLIPnOUT made signing waivers easy by allowing us to register our party online. For the first half of the party, Skylar led the kids into the 10,000 sq ft trampoline arena. They bounced up and down, playing 3-D dodgeball and soaring high up into the sky. After finishing a couple rounds in the trampoline arena, Steven brought the gang to the Warehouse Wars 5 story laser tag. The kids were all smiles during the match, and of course Steven broke the high score.
After the fun it’s PiZZA time
Back in the party room, we were served pizza from the FLIPnOUT food court. Following we celebrated with birthday cake, ice cream and presents. My boys had a great time with their friends, and more importantly, with each other. I was thrilled to see them getting along and having such a blast. When the party was over and I rallied the kids in from the arcade, my boys ran up to me, both of them with suspicious grins on their faces. I asked them what was up, and they blurted in unison: “Can we do FLIPnOUT again next year?”
I laughed at them, and smiled. Of course, I told them. As long as they promised to get along!
