Kids today might have their fancy graphics and in-game stories, but we’re harkening back to a simpler time, when every video game was cutting edge and every gamer pushed the boundaries. July 9th marks the 35th Anniversary of Donkey Kong, and we couldn’t let one of our favorite retro games go uncelebrated! Flex those fingers and grab your hammer. You’ll need to make it past Donkey Kong to save the princess. Old school gamers, let’s show ‘em how it’s done.
Retro Game Night at Funcity Sk8
In celebration of Donkey Kong’s 1981 release, we’re transforming the rink into a haven for retro gaming systems and old school arcade games. Video game veterans and new players alike are invited to celebrate Donkey Kong’s birthday with us on Friday, July 8th.
Skate for $8, rent skates for $3.50, and get a bundle deal with pizza and laser tag for $12
Play retro arcade games
Beat old school consoles like N64, PS2, and SNES
Demolish Tetris Tots at the snack bar (yes, they’re actually tater tots shaped like tetris pieces!)
Give Donkey Kong a tower of tater tots for his final stand with the Tallest Tower Tournament
Whoever stacks the tallest tower wins a prize!
Was your tower in the top 3? Whoever eats their tower the fastest winds a 2nd prize
Let’s party like it’s 1981! To learn more about Retro Game Night and other summer events in Webster, call Funcity Sk8.
Dory is on the hunt for her family, and we want to help her. But we have to find her first! The search is on at Funcity Sk8’s Have You Seen This Fish scavenger hunt. The prize? Dory’s eternal thanks . . . for the the 30 seconds she’ll remember you, at least. And a second prize you can hold onto: free tickets to Finding Dory! You and your kids are invited to join our fishy friends from Finding Nemo as they give us clues to Dory’s location. Float around the skating floor on this brand new adventure. Along the way you’ll find friendship, adventure, and fresh underwater themed snacks at our Snack Bar. Here are a few clues to get you started:
