Bette's Fun Center is designed for kids between the ages of 15 months and 10 years old. Anyone in that age range must pay an admission fee. Anyone outside of that range is free but anyone over 10 years old may only use the arcade center. Bette's Fun Center has a huge room that has bounce houses, slides, an arcade center and more to keep kids older than toddlers entertained. There is also a fenced off section in that larger room called toddler town. One sign says it's meant for kids aged 5 and under, another says "4 and under". Toddler town has a bounce house, small slide/play structure and both electronic and kid powered riding toys. There is no door or gate to block children from leaving or entering toddler town but they can only leave from one location. Outside food is not allowed but there is a snack bar in the play area that serves warm food and ice cream along with plenty of seating. While there is only one exit from the large play room it is easy to lose track of your children since the center arcade splits the room in two blocking the view of the other side. Admission costs more on the weekend but there are Groupons available. For more information please check out their website here.
