Indoor Entertainment - Arcades Fun Facts

Have campers take a (quick) break from the fun on the next trip to an indoor amusement center, and have them think about the design and day-to-day operations of the venue. How is it designed and laid out? What games and features (batting cages, arcade games, redemption games) go where, and why? Have them take a look around at how many people are there enjoying themselves; what is the maximum number of occupants, and why? How does the management go about heating and cooling the venue at different times of the year?

Speak to the staff about these questions; learn the "why" behind how things are arranged, and consider the role of safety. Relate this to how things are organized and what the rules are back at the camp.
