Vault Assault & Beam Busters Lazer Maze

The Vault Assault Laser Maze Challenge is one of the newest attractions. It’s a thrill you just can’t experience anywhere else! Just like in the movies, crawl, jump, balance your way carefully through the lasers to get to the mission objectives on the other side of the room. You’ll have to make it back to the door as quick as you can and AVOID breaking the lasers to get the lowest score possible. Switch to Beam Busters Mode and see how many lasers you can break in a limited amount of time. Compete against your friends for a spot on the top 10 scoreboard!

You and the members of your team must navigate the subway and sewer tunnels to avoid detection. You can compete one on one, or as a team up for capture the flag style play. Grab up to 20 of your friends {or fellow moms} and give it a try!

Editor’s Note: My parents opened Family Fun Center in Lakeland in 1981 when I was 2 years old. It has been our family business ever since then, somewhere I spent countless hours of my childhood and teen years, and my brother now owns and runs it. The original Family Fun Center location was at 3895 S Florida Ave in Lakeland (now Spice Sushi). In the late 80’s there was also a Family Fun Center location with mini-golf on 98N (now Palace Pizza), and also a location with arcade games at the corner of Combee and Memorial. In the early 90’s all of those locations were consolidated and Family Fun Center opened at its current location on South Florida Ave.

My dad designed the mini-golf course (I have memories of playing a LOT of mini-golf with my brother as we checked out other courses) and my parents spent 35+ years creating a safe space for families in Lakeland to play together. My dad’s “grandpa” name is Cappy (he is also our boat captain) and Cap’s Pizza Cafe is named in his honor.

Thank you for supporting our family business for all of these years – I hope you too have great memories at Family Fun Center!
