Midway Sports & Entertainment impresses first time visitor

Go-Karts? Check.
Bumper cars? Check.
Mini golf? Check.
And the list just goes on and on from there. I'm not sure that Midway Sports & Entertainment could offer more and still be what it is.

Batting cages and water balloon fights aside, there are still more activities I haven't mentioned. This little hidden gem slipped through the cracks as I've gotten to know the Downriver area, and I'm surprised because this was right up my alley (sorry no bowling).
I hadn't driven a Go-Kart in probably 15 years, and I might have been a bit tall for these, but from the second I stepped foot into one, instantly I was 4-years-old again and sitting next to my dad as he drove me around the track.
Heading over to the batting cages, I hadn't hit a ball in probably 20 years, and after stepping in to take my chops, I still haven't. However I had a lot of fun trying.

Next up, mini golf. They offer two different 18-hole courses, both of which are difficult but not so challenging as to frustrate the player. It was perfect.
Now on to the newly improved bumper cars, which were updated recently to include a sound system and easier controls for the riders. These were always a favorite of mine as a child, and were the highlight of my night out at.
The cars were comfortable and super easy to drive. What I especially enjoyed, they seem to be radio controlled as well. If there aren't enough drivers on the course the other cars still move around and give you extra targets to bump into.
There is also a climbing wall, water balloon fighting game and much more that I didn't get a chance to try.
They don't call me the 20-Something Manchild (My personal blog at for nothing, and this place brings the big kid in me right back out. (Though the 20-something part of that will soon go by the wayside as I decline into old age and turn the big 3-0 later this year.
