Five Places to Play in Fayetteville During the Christmas Holidays

Whether you are visiting Fayetteville or Cumberland County or are a local bringing in visitors for the holidays, chances are you are looking for ways to keep everyone entertained.  And with unpredictable weather, planning can be a challenge. Here are 5 indoor activities with an appeal for a wide range of ages.  


 1. Defy Fayetteville  – Fayetteville first trampoline park opened a few weeks ago in Westwood Shopping Center.  The 40,400 sq. ft park offers lots of ways to get active. In addition to lots of trampolines, Defy features trapeze, swings, foam pits, obstacle courses, trust falls, basketball courts, zip lines and more. Because the park only allows a certain number of people in each hour, overcrowding is never a problem. Prices start at $11 an hour for kids and $15 an hour for adults.   

 2. Mega Play Spring Lake – We’re talking 6,700 square feet of room to run and play at this indoor facility in Spring Lake. MegaPlay also features a two-level structure that contains a variety of activities, like bridges, obstacles, and more. The facility offers a designated area just for toddlers that have soft play equipment, a ball pit, and a soft foam slide. MegaPlay is the perfect spot to let the kids run off all their energy.

 3. Fun, Fun, Fun – Fun Fun Fun offers 12,000 square feet of games and rides, for a range of ages. Inside you’ll find an arcade full of classic and new games including skeeball, air hockey, pinball, guitar hero and plenty of opportunities to earn tickets and prizes. Lazer tag, perfect for toddlers to grandparents, allows you to compete against each other individually or form teams. If the weather is right, batting cages and miniature golf are on the grounds.

 4. Paraclete XP Skyventure–   At ParacleteXP you can experience a taste of skydiving in a safe, controlled environment.  Skyventure is a vertical wind tunnel with fans at the top that allows flyers to fly their bodies on a strong stream of air.  It is compared to skydiving because the forces on your body are the same as during the freefall part of a skydive.  Instructors guide flyers throughout the experience. Reservations are required for flight. Spectators are always welcome and they are free. Stop by and you may catch the Golden Knights practicing in the tunnel.  

 5. The Climbing Place-  – Flooded during Hurricane Matthew in fall of 2016, The Climbing Place closed for nearly 6 months. The newly renovated facility re-opened late Spring 2016 with activities for beginners to experienced climbers.  No reservation is required, equipment is provided and staff will help you each step of the way.  The Climbing Place is open Monday through Saturday.
