Funset Boulevard in Appleton has just the things to do for kids in every age group, classic fun for the whole family! This family entertainment center has been a staple in Grand Chute since the mid-nineties. A step inside will bring you back there with its nostalgic and many original features and decorations. The theme is a Hollywood movie set with a dinosaur head coming out of the ceiling and checkered flooring. You might even see Teddy the Token, the Funset mascot walking around.

Kids Playground

This is one of our favorite indoor playgrounds in the Fox Cities! The kid’s playroom includes a giant kid’s playground to climb, slide, crawl, and hang. It is similar to what you might find in other play areas but is super-sized, modeled off the movie Honey; I Shrunk the Kids. The fun goes up several stories and has super fun twisty slides for getting down. Kids need socks and the maximum height for playing is 58 inches.

Sessions last about 20 minutes; you must sign up for a session in advance. You might want to check availability and sign up for when you’d like to play as soon as you get there, especially if it is a busy night. Rules are gone over before the game starts, and you get suited up with a vest and laser blaster. At the end of the game, you can see how you and your team did on the big scoreboard. Kids need to be 48 inches tall to play.
