Good place for the kids to let off steam

We rented a table for a birthday. Bought the cards and set the kids free. They had fun but were back soon to get more money put on the card. This place is not cheap. The staff are... read more

Our experience at shakers was extremely underwhelming. First off we made the mistake of assuming Shakers was still located near Chinook (our mistake). Once we googled it we realized they probably sold the expensive property it once occupied and moved it to the outskirts of town where they could expend and improve their facility. Boy were we wrong. I'm not... More

Decided to take the kids and their friends to Shakers on a rainy summer day. I was disappointed when we arrived to see that they are now charging a flat price of $34.95 per person for 4 hours. This includes everything except the arcade games. Unfortunately on a rainy day that pretty much rules out go-karts unless you want to... More

It doesn't help that I was just at Scandia in Kelowna prior to going here. There is nothing that fun or exciting about Shakers. I was there yesterday afternoon to meet the kids and there were 4 cars in the parking lot. I would assume that Calaway Park, on the other hand, was packed yesterday. There is no theme here... More

Went with our two kids for the first time after buying a year membership. I now regret buying the membership. First off the front counter staff were pleasant but uninformed on processes and availability of food items. We played mini golf which was ok. The course was simple but my kids enjoyed it. We tried to ride go-karts but the... More

This is an entertainment centre aimed at kids of various ages. It has an arcade section, wall climbing, mini-golf, laser tag, go-karting, and probably a few things I didn't notice. The equipment appears new and fresh, so the place itself is quite attractive, and not rundown. There are different purchase options, including cards for playing arcade games - you specify... More

LET SHAKERS HOST YOUR NEXT BIRTHDAY PARTY! Our sons’ only request for his birthday this year was "a big bouncy house!" After learning that Shakers Fun Centre was just about to open a 6000 sq ft "Inflatable Village" in early March, we were set on holding the party there! With the Inflatable Village, Shakers is working to cater to a... More
