School Field Trips in Webster, Texas

Roller-Skating Field Trip.Any kid will argue the absolute best time during school was the field trip that led them out into the world. Learning doesn’t have to be limited to just the classroom, there is much knowledge to be gained by taking a day away from the desk.

Not Just Any Field Trip
 
As ‘screen time’ increases, giving children a physical education is becoming increasingly important. To lead a healthy life as an adult, children should be taught at a young age that physical fitness doesn’t have to be boring and monotonous.

At FunCity your students will learn that physical fitness can be fun and enjoyable while they experience roller skating around our ring. That’s not the only thing they will learn – their communication skills and teamwork will be put to the test as they try out laser tag events.

 

Field trips are a great way to teach soft skills outside the classroom. We offer a number of different packages for these field trips. Reasonable group prices are available for numbers of up to 150. These packages come with 2 hours of roller skating time and skate rentals. Optional add-ons are available to make a totally customizable excursion.

4 Tips for a Better Birthday Party

  1. celebrating with presentsPlan ahead. When you book a birthday at Funcity, we take care of the snacks, the games, and the cleanup. Make sure your child’s party is everything they dreamed of by planning your party well in advance. Book an Extreme, Glow, The Works, or private party, then customize your event with add ons. The earlier you plan it, the better (and easier) your birthday party will be.
  2. Don’t forget add-ons. Funcity Sk8 offers a number of ways to customize your child’s birthday bash. Get extra tokens, glow sticks, goody bags, and more for the birthday kid and her guests.
  3. Get more bang for your buck. Birthday parties at Funcity Sk8 are overflowing with fun, from exclusive skating races to awesome arcade games. If your kid loves competition, book a Friday night birthday bash. In addition to roller-skating and bouncing, your guests will get a chance to test their sharpshooting skills in our laser tag arena.
  4. Give a great gift. The best birthday gifts are fun, useful, and fit with the party theme. What better gift for the birthday boy or girl than a new pair of roller-skates? Not only does skating engage kids in active play (something parents will love!), your child will be able to customize his new gift while he’s here (something the guest of honor will love!). Check out the roller-skates, skating accessories, and other fun toys in our shop.

Away From the Desk, Into the Fun

Education BlackboardArguably, the best times of the school year for the kids are the field trips they get to take that led them out into the world. Learning doesn’t have to be limited to just the classroom, there is much knowledge to be gained by taking a day away from sitting at their desks.

As ‘screen time’ increases, teaching children about physical fitness is important. To lead a healthy life as an adult they should be taught at a young age that fitness doesn’t have to be boring and monotonous. At Funcity your students will learn that physical fitness can be fun and enjoyable while they get to experience skating around our rink. That’s not the only thing they will learn – their team work skills will be put to the test as they try out laser tag events.

The normal laser tag game of team A versus team B is always fun, but think outside of the box! Play a game of teachers versus students, make point goals so that the game brings in the challenge of math, or set up a version of leagues to keep the kids playing throughout the session.

Roller skating is not only a great way to teach kids about exercise and fitness, but it’s a unique opportunity learn about physics. Kinetic energy versus potential energy is easily illustrated out on the skating floor while the kids on are wheels.

Field trips are a great way to teach outside the classroom. We offer a number of different packages for these excursions, which include bringing up to 150 guests for a reasonable price. These packages come with 2 hours of skate time and skate rentals, as well as optional add-ons.
