With a family of 6, we’re always looking for fun yet inexpensive things we can do as a family. That isn’t always easy to do.
Our town has an awesome resort that we can do just that. Metropolis Resort has everything you need all under one roof. Take a look at everything you’ll find at Metropolis:
Metropolis Resort, is the only venue in Western Wisconsin that features extreme family fun under one roof. Part family fun center, part indoor water park and part designer hotel and conference center, the Metropolis Resort offers you a getaway with more to do and no chance of getting bored.
Our resort houses Action City Family Fun Center which has more than 100 of the most popular video and redemption games. It’s also home to fast paced attractions, including the largest indoor go-kart track in the Midwest, an outdoor sprint and bandit car track, laser tag, bumper cars, batting cages, a climbing wall, mini bowling, an adventure maze, and 18 holes of mini golf.
Our award winning Comic Book themed Chaos Indoor Water Park is brightly colored with hand-painted murals which cover almost every inch of wall space. Upon entering our water park, guests are transported to a world of superheroes and villains, which includes everything from aliens to dinosaurs. Our water park features multiple slides, activity pools, a lazy river, a double hot tub, a ropes course, and a kids wading activity pool area.
The Metropolis Resort is located just 95 miles east of downtown Minneapolis in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
We have been going to Action City for a few years now. In fact, we are “gold card” members there. 😉 Our favorite is to get their family fun package which includes money on our Action City card, pizza and drinks. We can spend a few hours playing, having fun and have a meal for less than what it would cost to take our family of 6 out to dinner.
Since we loved Action City, we decided it’d be fun to actually stay at the hotel and have a little family stay-cation! We stayed one night in the hotel, had 2 days of fun at the Chaos Indoor Waterpark and 1 day of fun at Action City.
The hotel is beautiful. Very modern and even green. We’ve stayed in hotels before that try to go green with energy savings. Metropolis has done it right. Instead of having motion sensors for energy savings, Metropolis has a card function…in order to turn the power on in your room, your key card goes in the EntergizeTM System Thermostat. This way the power is only on when you are in the room or have the key card in. I love this feature! The other thing that was great about this hotel is that it accommodated all of us! They have several rooms with bunk beds. The kids loved it! Granted we weren’t in the room a lot but when it came time to sleep, we all had a bed. 😉
Action City is always a blast. We did a little bit of everything there. Take a look at the fun pics to see just a little of what we did:
Then we headed over to Chaos Indoor Waterpark and had even more fun…my kids are fish so they loved spending time here:
We had such a great time! Anytime I’m looking for a hotel, I always look for ones that are kid friendly. Where we can all fit in the room and someplace that the kids can swim and/or play. Metropolis Resort has it all. Make sure you check them out for your next family stay-cation or vacation! If you’re going to be traveling through the area, it’s a must!
