EVENTS

It’s time to say goodbye to boring parties.  At Make Believe Family Fun Center we believe that a party is only successful if everyone has fun.  Many event venues are geared toward a narrow range of ages, or focus on those with a specific interest. Anyone who doesn’t like that single attraction finds themselves bored while their friends celebrate.  No matter your age, gender or passion, you’ll find the fun you’re looking for when you step into our world of Make Believe.

We make it easy to personalize each birthday party and event.  Choose a package that includes the attractions you love, the food you want and even a private party room for opening birthday presents, presenting team trophies or congratulating members of your corporate staff.  We have six private party rooms, themed with fun details from medieval worlds and galactic adventures.  Each event at Make Believe comes with a private party host to make sure every person has the time of their lives. They’ll also help you out with attraction safety, give you tips for a better experience and ensure your food is delivered to your party room on time.  Afterwards we’ll handle all the cleanup.

What kind of events do we host at Make Believe?  A better question might be what can’t we do!  From team building corporate events, camp groups, school field trips, family reunions, teen parties, fundraising events, overnight lock-ins for churches and community organizations, holiday parties, sports league celebrations, if you can dream it we can do it!

Step into a world of Make Believe and book your party today.

We Grow Old Because We Stop Playing

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.”

– George Bernard Shaw

In today’s world of go, go, go it’s easy to let what’s really important slip through the cracks.  There are always bills to pay, homework to finish and a million things to do before bedtime.  It’s hard to find the time to reconnect as a family.  So when you do find a free Saturday, how will you spend it?  Your daughter may love rock climbing while your son prefers video games.  Your spouse may be a master of laser tag, but you’d rather test your skills on a ropes course.  It seems every family entertainment center you find is geared only towards the kids, leaving the parents stuck on the sidelines.  We know, we’ve been there.

We also knew we couldn’t be the only family in Cleveland looking for a place to disconnect from the world.  Wishing for a place where we could recharge our mental reserves and invest in some serious family playtime.  So we created Make Believe Family Fun Center and chose the centrally located community of Parma in which to build it.  We hired an amazing staff that’s dedicated to going above and beyond to ensure your family has the best day each and every time you visit.  At Make Believe we want to help you and your family create memories that will last a lifetime.

So come, spend a day playing and remember why family time is so important.   On behalf of our founders Yuri and Elena, their kids and our entire staff:

Welcome to our world of Make Believe!

Why We Created Make Believe

Hello, we are Yuri and Elena the founders and owners of Make Believe Family Fun Center in Parma, Ohio.  As parents we understand the challenges that modern families face.  We rush around taking care of work, school and endless to-do lists, all the while missing what’s really most important – quality family time.  We started this project back in 2013 because we saw the need for a place where families could do things together.  Somewhere that parents don’t have to just sit and watch, but can join in the fun alongside their kids.  When you play, explore and interact together as a family an amazing thing happens – lasting memories are created.

At Make Believe Family Fun Center we have state-of-art attractions, enchanting surroundings, great food and drinks all supported by unparalleled guest service, providing a truly one of a kind experience for families in Northeast Ohio.  While our unique attractions may be the reason you first visited, you will find that it was the enthusiasm and attention to detail by our staff that you remembered most.  It is our goal that you felt you were treated like a long lost friend.  Like in your family, it’s the people that truly make it special.

Life goes by way too fast, and before you know it your kids are on their own. We want to become a part of the story they will one day tell their own children: “Families that play together stay together!”

Thank you for allowing us to share our family moments, make a difference in the community, and create a place where your family experiences will be remembered for generations.

Mini Bowling

It wouldn’t be family fun without bowling!  Step into a world of retro fun with some modern style. Our mini bowling alley is a kaleidoscope of colors with fun hues, artsy patterns and that classic cosmic bowling feel. You don’t even need to change your shoes!  Instead of fretting about the size (and stink factor) of bowling shoes, we let you tackle the alley in your own sneakers.

Make Believe Family Fun Center has 4 mini bowling lanes built specifically for family play. Each lane is slightly shorter than what you’ll find at a typical bowling alley, making it fun for kids as well as adults. The lanes also have bumpers that let kids practice and play without gutter ball after gutter ball.  If you’re the bowling pro in the family don’t worry, our bowling lanes are just as scaled, polished and kept in the same great shape as our full sized counterparts.

We love Mini-Bowling!  Here are just a few of the reasons why:

  • It’s fun, whether you’re a beginner, an expert or somewhere in between
  • It’s great for all ages, from toddlers to seniors
  • It’s social. Share fun stories, tell jokes or tease your loved ones while you wait for your turn to bowl
  • It’s safe for kids, with a smaller-than-average ball and equipment that’s clean and well maintained by our staff
  • It teaches skills. Not only does mini bowling teach your kids the basics of the sport, it’s also great for team building, learning perseverance and the concepts of geometry and approach angles
  • Our interactive scoreboard is easy to set up; we even have 8 TV video displays to help distract the younger kids

Ready for a little healthy competition?  Then let’s bowl!

Arcade

Step into a world of high speed chases, winning basketball shots, top secret recon missions, alien invasions, hunting trips, street races and the infamous claw game. Our arcade is much more than just Pac-Man and Donkey Kong. The Make Believe arcade is an immersive, interactive experience with over 60 games on various systems and platforms, from the classic arcade style to the latest video games. Beat your highest score, show your siblings how it’s done with a vs. match, or test your skills against another generation in a kids vs. parents retro gaming contest. We keep the arcade on the cutting edge of gaming with the latest video and arcade games, so guests always have a new experience every time they play.

The arcade is located right in the thick of the action. The ropes course is overhead and the Treasure Chest redemption center is nearby for when you’re ready to redeem your points for prizes.

At Make Believe you also don’t have to mess with tokens or tickets. We track your play with a digital playing card that organizes your points, gives you hours of play, and gives you special benefits the longer you play. Want to hold onto your points or recharge your playing card for another day of play? Ask and you shall receive.
