This summer, we took my sons to the Boomers in Santa Maria for the first time. It was a drive to the next county over but we always enjoy going into a big town again.

There's never an admission fee to go inside however you have to pay for the rides, mini golf and playing on the arcades. I think that if the kids are still little, they can skip the rides and just enjoy the indoor arcade. They also serve food so you don't have to worry about being hungry last minute. They have burgers, pretzels and other interesting Southern items too. This Boomers location also has local beer on tap so the adults can have an adult beverage if they want to as they are playing games.

We started out at the arcade as that's the main entrance anyway. You can buy an arcade card at the counter or from their self-serve machines.

Aside from getting an arcade card, we bought a pass for each of us so that we can each go on 3 activities, which you can pick mini golf as one of the options. I think if your child is still a toddler, it may be hard for them to concentrate through 18 holes but it's still fun to take turns and do a family activity. They don't charge kids 5 and under for mini golf.

They're open every day so you can always come to Boomers if you're thinking of something to do to entertain the kids. They have half prices off on games on Wednesdays and Ticket Deals on Tuesdays and Thursday if you want to save some money.
