Hey there, fellow gamers and adventure enthusiasts! If you're like me – a proud wife to Cord (an indie video game studio owner) and a loving mother to two gaming-savvy kids, Max (a curious 3-year-old boy) and Athena (an 11-year-old girl with a knack for gaming) – then you're in for a treat when visiting Frisco. An array of gamer-friendly options will leave you and your family on cloud nine. Let's dive into the digital wonderland that Frisco has to offer!

Main Event: Where Fun and Games Collide

Imagine a place where bowling, laser tag, arcades, and virtual reality all converge in a whirlwind of excitement – that's Main Event for you!

Meanwhile, Athena was busy mastering her skills in air hockey, proving that age is just a number when it comes to gaming prowess.

National Videogame Museum: A Trip Down Memory Lane

Every gamer has a story to tell, and what better place to relive the nostalgia than at the National Videogame Museum? The moment we stepped inside, we were greeted by a treasure trove of gaming history – from vintage consoles to iconic game cartridges. Athena's eyes lit up as she discovered the evolution of her favorite games, while Max was fascinated by the quirky characters and colorful displays. Cord was totally in his element. He became our tour guide through the history of video games, and our greatest champion at the arcade near the end of the tour.
