15 Ideas for Winter Family Fun in the Fort

It’s that time of year: the holidays are over, but winter is still upon us, spring and summer are too distant to get excited about just yet. Boredom is constantly lurking, and lazy nights it seems like the only option every weekend.  If only there were another way… Fort Wayne to the rescue!  Despite this annual lull and chilly weather, our city is never short on activities, happenings, and events.  We’ve done the research: check out our top 15 ideas for the whole family on staying busy and entertained this winter.   1. Cheer the Komets on to Number One! View this post on Instagram Monday would be a lot better if we all had popcorn guns. A post shared by Fort Wayne Komets (@fwkomets) on Jan 8, 2018 at 7:41am PST The Komets are on fire this season with some of the best skaters in their league and are currently ranked second in their division.  Join Icy at the rink and help bring them to number one! 2. Go Mad for the Mad Ants View this post on Instagram 📸 from our first game of the #gleagueshowcase yesterday afternoon A post shared by Fort Wayne Mad Ants (@fortwaynemadants) on Jan 12, 2018 at 9:50am PST Mad Ants games are fun for the whole family, and promo nights keep things fresh. Don your capes and masks for Superhero Night on February 3rd.  Moms and Dads can enjoy a Wayne’s World theme on March 16th with a crowd-singing of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody.”  Party on! 3. Hit the Lanes View this post on Instagram It's Saturday night and we're in the spot! A post shared by Crazy Pinz (@crazypinz) on Oct 7, 2017 at 11:56am PDT Fort Wayne has no shortage of awesome bowling alleys.  Besides its 56 lanes, Pro Bowl West claims to have the best pork tenderloin sandwich in the city.  Thunderbowl #1 has daily specials.  Crazy Pinz doesn’t stop at bowling; mini golf, a ropes course and a rock wall are just a few of their extra attractions. 4. Jump Around  View this post on Instagram ugly sweaters, sick jumps A post shared by Sky Zone (@skyzone) on Dec 23, 2017 at 9:51am PST Ever wanted to dunk a basketball like the pros?  Give it a shot (pun intended) with a trampoline at Sky Zone.  More trampolines stretch wall-to-wall for endless jumping, including a dodgeball court and foam pit.   5. Take an Intergalactic Adventure View this post on Instagram Tag other players through the grates! #ultrazoneftw #ultrazone #fortwayne #lasertag #visitfortwayne #familyentertainment #familyfun A post shared by Ultrazone Fort Wayne (@ultrazone_laser_tag) on Apr 3, 2017 at 7:52pm PDT Is there...
