Family Fun by the Kartload at Youngsville's Premier Entertainment Center

By S. Mathur

Kart Ranch is a family fun center that is also family-owned and-operated. For thirty years, it has been providing family entertainment and fun indoor and outdoor games and activities. Manager Brooke McJimsey says that what sets its apart from other entertainment centers is the concern for guests.

That, and "the variety of inside and outside attractions that appeal to all ages. Our inside attractions include a huge arcade with all of the newest games as well as our multi-level playground. Outside we have go-karts, kiddie karts, bumper boats, water wars, castle clash, miniature golf, and batting cages! We are constantly growing; we just added a new rock wall, and we will be adding a kiddie train and laser frenzy in the next few months."

Castle Clash is a unique water shooting game, perfect for kids on a hot summer's day. What actually happens in Castle Clash? Simple, says McJimsey, "Are you ready to get soaked? Castle Clash is a fun water shooting game. Players on each side must defend their castle by shooting water through a cannon at their opponents targets. Certain targets will set off sprays causing you to get wet. The losing side will get soaked! We got the idea for this attraction because kids love getting wet especially on those hot Louisiana summer days!"

The outdoor rock wall is open on weekends from 12 to 6. Other popular outdoor attractions are the 18-hole Louisiana themed miniature golf course and of course, the go-karts. Indoors, there's a state of the art game room and a multi-level, interactive playground. The snack bar has pizza, sandwiches and finger foods and the food overall is rated as excellent by guests.

Kart Ranch also hosts birthday parties, and as you would expect, they're the best parties ever. Even for parents, who don't have to worry about anything, since the staff take of everything from set up to check in to cleaning up afterwards. And for kids, it's the perfect birthday party, to spend time in a fun-filled paradise with all their friends. There's a special party host, and two special party games for the birthday child and friends: Spin the Wheel and Prize Pit Stop. After the party, guests can stay on and play at the center all day.

Because Kart Ranch is a family owned business, rather than a franchise of a large corporation, the owners are present at the center each day. All staff are committed to ensuring that guest have a safe, enjoyable visit.

Grown-ups love the go-karts just as much as the kids, and that might be one reason why they love bringing their families here. One guest wrote: "U don't have to be a kid to go to the kart ranch!! We love the kart ranch because the rides are so much fun and the food is awesome!! Me and my family loves kart ranch!!"
