Bumper Boats, Mini-golf and More

Family friendly things to do in the Hudson Valley

bumper boats for hot summer day fun

If you grew up in the Hudson Valley like me, I am willing to bet that you have either had or have been to a birthday party at Fun Central on Route 9 in Wappingers. After moving away from the Hudson Valley for several years I was heartbroken to learn that one of my favorite childhood spots was gone and I could never bring my kids there.

Well, Hudson Valley children of the 90’s… Did you hear the great news? After years of vacancy, DC Sports an extension of DC Golf in Poughkeepsie, has taken over the former Fun Central! It’s back, it’s bigger and better than before and we cannot wait to visit! DC Sports is a great place to add to our top list of family date nights!

DC Sports is a year-round family fun spot with exciting activities everyone in your family will enjoy. Offering birthday parties, volleyball leagues, indoor and outdoor family fun. (We list our favorite Hudson Valley Indoor Play spots, here!)

Activities for the summer include miniature golf, sand volleyball with live music, 8 PGA golf simulators, bumper boats, arcade and even a full service bar with flat screen TVs and pub food!

Take your family or grab your friends for some fun this summer. A round of mini-golf will cost you $8/person or $5 ages 3-10. Bumper boats are $5/person for 6 minutes or you can save by purchasing a sports pack for both golf and bumper boats at $11/adults, $8 child under 10.

DC Sports is located at 1630 Route 9, Wappingers Falls and is opened Monday-Thursday from 10am-10pm, Friday and Saturday from 10am-11pm and Sunday 10am-9pm.
