No kids? No problem! Game of Zones provides just as much entertainment for a group of thirty and forty somethings as it does for tweens and teens. This family-friendly and family-owned entertainment center in West Boca Raton offers variety of arcade games, five bowling lanes, laser tag and bumper cars, as well as a full menu with beer, wine and spiked seltzers.
Game of Zones is only six months old, but it’s already gaining a following. According to co-owner, Clara Andrade (she and her husband are the owners), 45% of their customers come back weekly!
The atmosphere at Game of Zones is fun and relaxed, and there is a lot to do! Bowling is a must, but it can get busy on the weekends, so definitely make sure to call ahead and reserve your lane. The bumper cars area, known as the ‘Spin Zone,’ is small but mighty. Those cars seem to have a mind of their own!
There are classic arcade games like Skee Ball and Air Hockey, but also plenty of newer ones inspired by current pop culture. The laser tag experience is a lot of fun with a group. Everyone gets a special code name and runs around a custom-designed, glow-in-the-dark, Sci-Fi Tribal Arena trying to zap each other without getting hit.
The menu is filled with the perfect food to fuel your game day. There are six flavors of crispy chicken wings (not gluten-free) — honey BBQ, garlic-parmesan, Thai chili, blackened dry rub, teriyaki, mango habanero and GOZ blackberry, as well as salads and wraps, loaded nachos, an option to build your own pizza or burger, hummus with pita and veggies, and more.
No matter what day you visit Game of Zones, there is always some kind of special going on. On Monday, get half-priced game cards to use for arcade games, laser tag and the Spin Zone. Tuesday is dubbed ‘Taco and Tag 2SDAY’ featuring $2 tacos and two-for-one laser tag. On Wednesday, kids get free pizza with the purchase of a $20 game card or combo play. Bowling is half-priced on Thursday, at $9.99/hr per lane. On Friday, you can “Party Like It’s $19.99” with two hours of unlimited arcade games, laser tag, and Spin Zone. Saturday is all about the “Play With Your Food” combo deals, with both children and adult specials being offered.
