Freehold, N.J., October 31, 2018 – This weekend, iPlay America is marking the grand opening of their newly renovated multi-level, 6,500-square-foot laser tag arena. The dynamic, responsive arena is the latest update to the indoor amusement park and entertainment venue in Freehold, N.J.

The updated arena features new game modes, featured power ups, and additional bonus targets. These features dramatically enhance the structure of game play and take it to a whole new level. The new power up feature gives players the opportunity to pick their power up mode anytime, anywhere – unlike most versions of laser tag that give a player power ups at random. This update also includes interactive LED illumination, which boasts the ability to change colors, pulse, strobe and react to game play events in real-time. Newly installed kiosks allow players to easily input their information to create a player profile, including a player name and photo. The kiosks can also send text messages when games are about to begin and deliver score cards via email and more. Each laser tag game in the new arena can host up to 35 players at a time.

“We’re always looking to bring guests exciting upgrades and new features to our most popular attractions,” said Jessica Schwartz, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for iPlay America. “The new technology and additions to our arena are sure to offer our laser tag fans a fresh and entertaining experience.

IPlay America Freehold NJ

Today we visited IPlay America, an indoor theme park in Freehold, NJ.

It’s definitely misleading from the outside as it sits in a strip mall and looks like any other storefront.  Inside,  it’s huge!

Inside it’s made to mimic an outdoor boardwalk with arcades, stands,  and rides. It even has a boardwalk style floor.

20180311_121528.jpg

The rides there aren’t for older kids,  but my kids ages 5 and 9 had a good time and went on just about all of them although my 5 year old needed an adult to ride most of the rides with him so I had a ride wristband too. We had the iRide plus bands, which include the larger rides like go karts and coaster.

Some of the rides they enjoyed;

Bumper boats

20180311_134005.jpg

Spinning Coaster

20180311_123726.jpg

Go Karts

20180311_131704

The skywalk was extra credits and not included with the ride passes.  It’s 10 credits or $5 for kids under 42″ and they do the lower section.  20 credits or $10 for kids taller than 42″ and they go on the really high area.  They get strapped in and follow the path with the bar for safety.

I wouldn’t recommend this for any child who may be scared of heights.  My son got scared after the first beam and came right back down and they wouldn’t credit us back!20180311_122658.jpg

The bottom section is cute for very young kids, but there isn’t much to it.

20180311_122649.jpg

The arcades are fun but unfortunately they do not let you win enough in my opinion.  The grab claw games are almost pointless as they do not pick up the items at all.

The game selection is great and tons of things my kids enjoy.  They won a little over 1,000 tickets and I like that they are loaded directly onto your point card. There isn’t much to choose from for prizes though, so we got a bunch of candy.

20180311_134700

Overall, it’s a nice day out if you want to get out of the house and have that boardwalk feel when it’s not so nice weather out.

One of the best parts about iplay is yhe event area.  There are many decent priced shows for all ages including concerts and dinners. I highly recommend visiting the event area if you have a chance!

S.H.I.E.L.D agents Black Widow and Commander Stryker find themselves outmatched when the Green Goblin develops a serum that increases his intelligence, size and strength. Calling upon Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, the Avengers, the team thwarts the Green Goblin’s diabolical plans by tricking him into reversing his formula — making him smaller than he ever was and as weak as a kitten. Spider-Man joins the fun as Ant Man and Captain America team up to prove that “good always overcomes evil,” no matter what size. The positive message is that it’s never the size of the opponent, it’s simply the size of your heWebsite-Block_0art. Stryker inducts Spider-Man as an honorary member of S.H.I.E.L.D and The Mighty Avengers!
