Great place, amazing staff, and a good place for families and sporting activities or camps. Clean environment, with a very large parking lot, easy to find! They can give you good deals to Splash Lagoon which is right across from the facility so its very convenient. Their prices are fair, and its a great time! The campus is making great... More

We just visited Erie and were looking for something to do on a rainy day. Came across Family First Sports Park and we stopped. It looked dead. My husband went to the door and it was open. He walked all through the arena with no one stopping him. He went into rooms and the gym and could not find anyone.... More

The Laser Tag at Splash Lagoon is a fun attraction that is inside the parking lot of Splash Lagoon, but is not connected. (You have to walk outside to get in.) It is a rather small place that offers a fair amount of obstacles (such as posts and walls), but not too much in the way of things you can... More

This is one of the few indoor golf domes in this area of long extreme winter weather. That fact alone makes this a must for golfers. It is on par with any others I've visited.

I enjoy utilizing the golf dome in the winter time to practice my golf swing. I go and practice every chance I get when the dome is open.

We recently hosted an event for approx. 2,000 people at their facility. My original reservation was for the Basketball courts. Instead they scheduled basketball in there and kicked my company out with a sorry. Eventually, we were able to work it out that we could use both soccer courts BUT we had to pay $1,000 more than we were originally... More

Stayed there for a camp recently and between the mold growing on the walls and the broken doors, I seriously doubt we will ever go back. The staff was as helpful as they could be given the circumstances, but the owner really needs to invest some money in renovations. This place is really falling apart.

No one knows what is going on. The staff and management are clueless!! Only a few bumper boats worked, the ropes are closed, the batting cages are old, and there really wasn't anything else to do. Odd times for it to be open.
