AUG 24 | 8 PM - 11 PM |
The kids are back in school which only means one thing…it’s time to let your hair down and your inner child out at Epic Fun’s first-ever adults-only night!
Epic After Dark is coming and you don’t want to miss out. The night is complete with access to the entire Epic Fun facility including bumper cars, arcade games, axe throwing, mini bowling, laser tag, and so much more. Included in the numerous arcade games are old school and new school games, from ski ball to basketball and everything in between.
In addition to all the activities available, there will be a fajita and dessert bar as well as unlimited beer and wine options.
This is a night to call in the babysitter, round up a group of friends, have a few drinks, and have a ton of fun. This isn’t your typical Saturday night and it’s sure to be a night you will never forget.
Tickets are $40 in advance so be sure to snag yours early or pay full price at the door!
