Family Fun Activities in Rohnert Park

Families are the focus in the central Sonoma County town of Rohnert Park, making it the perfect place to relax and have fun together. 

Whether you want to play miniature golf, race electric karts, slam together in bumper cars, bounce on trampolines, glide on roller skates or blades, go bowling, play arcade games, explore a massive toy and hobby store, or build with LEGOS, you'll find it in Rohnert Park.

Here's a quick roundup of some of the opportunities for family fun in Rohnert Park.

Scandia Family Fun Center

5301 Redwood Drive, 707-584-1398

There's so much to do here, you'll have trouble deciding where to start. Play on one (or both) of the two award-winning 18-hole miniature golf courses. Race to the finish line on the Lil'Indy Raceway. Battle it out in bumper cars or blaster boats. Swing for a home run in the batting cages. Play pinball, skeeball, redemption games, dance simulators, or any of the more than 100 games in the arcade. Then enjoy a delicious slice of pizza, popcorn, or other munchies.

Reach speeds of up to 45 miles per hour on the D-Force Super Track. The Italian-built competition electric carts are fine-tuned machines with superb cornering and quicker acceleration than gas-powered karts. (Note: For safety, staff can electronically slow down or stop the karts at any time. To drive, children must be at least 48 inches tall.)

There's also a race-themed, two-lane mini-bowling alley; a nine-hole glow-in-the-dark black-light mini-golf course; and arcade and video games with prizes for all ages.

Jump from a 14-foot tower into an inflated landing surface, play in-the-air dodgeball, and soar like a superstar on the Basketball Slam. There's also an indoor playground for children up to 10 years old, a game arcade with prizes, and a full-service café with free Wi-Fi.
