Many kids don’t have fun at family fun centers. They may feel overstimulated by the lights and noise of playgrounds, arcades, and laser tag arenas. Family Fun Center strives to be a place where all families can connect and play. We’re excited to roll out new dates for our time for sensory-sensitive kids: Sensational Sundays.
If you have a sensory-sensitive child, it can be difficult to help your son or daughter enjoy certain experiences. Their classmates may throw big birthday parties, but the lights, sounds, and crowds make your child feel overwhelmed. At Family Fun Center, we want every child to have an awesome time. Sensational Sunday is a sensory-friendly play day in Lakeland. Once a month from 10:30am to 12pm, we’re turning down the lights and music to help sensory sensitive kids experience the fun of our Funtasia play area and other family activities we have at Family Fun Center of Lakeland. Here’s what to expect:
- Low lights
- Games off
- Low music
- Trained staff
- Stay and play all day
- Open to ages 12 and younger
We’re even opening early to keep the crowds to a minimum. Dates for 2017 are as follows:
- Jan 29th
- Feb 26th
- Mar 26th
- Apr 30th
- May 28th
- Aug 27th
- Sept 24th
- Oct 29th
- Dec 3rd

Tips for Sensory-Friendly Play
Does your child love the idea of Sensational Sunday? Here are a few tips to make sure they have an awesome time.
- Know your child. We do our best to make the experience fun for all kids, but know your child’s limits.
- Plan ahead. Will your child need an extra nap before playtime? Make sure they get it so they can focus on fun.
- Keep communication open. You want your child to have a great time. Let them know it’s okay to be honest about their experience. If they’re overwhelmed, you can always try again next month.
