It will be nice to have someplace to go to have fun in Tewksbury again. I remember when we had a ice skating on ponds, sledding behind the junior high, bowling alley, drive-in, two miniature golf courses, batting cages, go karts..... all kinds of things to do without using up a tank of gas and all gone. Thanks.

I hope this is only the beginning of making Tewksbury back into a family and kid friendly town. And for the record you are never too old for lazer tag and mini-golf!

With a great management team in place and terrific owners, the kids of Tewksbury will have a wonderful place to meet and share memories together. Can't wait for Spring to work on our mini-golf skills. Best of luck, and congratulations to Gary, Steve and Bill.

I think this is going to be great for Tewksbury and area families. When my kids were young, I used to take them to the arcade that was there and we all loved it. Tewksbury needed a place like that and I hope it's successful.

We went last Saturday for the arcade, pizza and ice cream. We all had a great time. We look forward to trying laser tag and enjoying the outside tables and mini golf in the warm weather. Great place. I hope it does well. The town really needs this place and more like it.
