Family Fun Park By Tom Eccleston
Multiple choice may be a difficult testing method in the classroom, but at Costa’s Family Fun Park, it’s a snap. Here, you see, all options are the correct answer. Costa’s offers a boundless array of activities: bumper boats, miniature golf, laser tag, water slides, batting cages, go-karts, and video games. Throw in some hand-dipped ice cream from the snack bar, and a family’s day is made. “We’ve been to the Park several times during the summer, and it doesn’t disappoint,” proclaims Katrina Walden of Pompton Lakes, NJ. “My extended clan rents a house nearby, making Costa’s very reachable. Lake Wallenpaupack is less than three miles away.” Indeed, this Hawley-based attraction is the perfect getaway for outdoor enthusiasts. Lori Phillips, the Park Manager, views multigenerational enjoyment as the key to Costa’s endurance. “It’s a close-knit habitat where parents bring children and allow them the freedom to navigate [the property] on their own. But adults can just as easily participate themselves.” The ever-popular go-karts allow riders to putter along at an even pace, with smaller vehicles available for tykes at least 42 inches tall. Costa’s 18-hole miniature golf course features sand traps accompanied by a stream with an imposing stone waterfall. A laser tag system provides state-of-the-art interactive amusement, as players are suited up with a blue vest and phaser gun, promptly taking aim at targets on their opponents to score points.
