Last week we were invited to a media day at GameWorks Denver, and if you haven’t visited this place yet, you’re missing out! When you walk into GameWorks you are greeted by an open air feeling, a spacious layout that feels cleaner than many other arcades we’ve been to. Maybe that’s because GameWorks is so much more than just an arcade.

Our thoughts on GameWorks Denver-
Our visit to GameWorks was great! It was Moose (10/m), Tater (12/m), Lou (13/f), and myself. We all enjoyed ourselves, and we each had an activity that was our favorite.
As for me? I really love laser tag in general, but this one was especially fun because it was such a big space! I also liked playing some shooter games with my boys, and playing Skee-ball with Lou.
Moose really liked the racing games, and the virtual reality rides! He also got a huge kick out of the ESports zone.
Tater, now this boy is my gamer to the core, nearly passed out when he saw the ESports Zone. All of those computers, and games? That’s right up his alley! I was shocked that he came out to play laser tag, and arcade games, I thought for sure he would be handcuffing himself to the computers so that I could never make him leave.
Lou had a great time playing laser tag, she also really like the sporty games like basketball.
We spent about 4 hours here, then we had to leave to go to a baseball game, but afterward we came right back to finish up our day. We stayed until close; drank a beer, ate a delicious house-made pizza, and played games until we couldn’t see straight. It was a really good way for our family to spend time together.
We will be on the look-out for Groupons and deals, and we’ll be back to GameWorks Denver soon! They offer birthday parties, corporate events, and more too!
