Kids of all ages will find plenty to do in Rogers. Indoors and outdoors, there’s something for everybody in the family to enjoy.

Indoor Activities

Fast Lane Entertainment - Go bowling, climb through the play structure, set a high score in the arcade, drive the spin zone bumper cars and so much more in the 75,000-square-foot facility. Big and little kids head to Fast Lane to play.

Dave & Buster’s – Bring the whole family to watch sports, play games and eat casual food. That simple. That fun.

Malco Theatres - Two locations of Malco Theatres provide opportunities to see the latest movies on the big screen. One is the Malco at Pinnacle Hills Promenade and the other is the Malco Rogers Towne Cinema on 46th Street.

Museums

Daisy Airgun Museum - Visit the gift shop to buy your own BB gun from Daisy Manufacturing Company, Inc., the world’s oldest and largest manufacturer of airguns, ammo and accessories. This museum showcases Daisy’s history with 150 antique airguns dating to the 1600s, including the comic strip character Buck Rogers Disintegrator Pistol and the Red Ryder BB Gun from the movie “A Christmas Story.”

Rogers Historical Museum - See how Rogers transformed from a rural village to a vibrant, modern community. There’s lots of hands-on fun for families to enjoy together. NOTE: The museum is currently undergoing a significant renovation that requires a temporary closing during 2018.

Outdoor Adventure

Golf Mountain Mini-Golf - Claim your favorite ball color, and line up your shot at two 18-hole mini-golf courses featuring long holes and short holes, sudden dips, bumps, inclines, streams of blue cascading water and rock waterfalls. Each hole is different, and a missed shot could end up in a pond. Adding to the awesomeness is a covered outdoor pavilion, Wi-Fi, and music.

Rogers Aquatics Center - Float the lazy river, slide down the slides, and splash the day away at this 3-acre outdoor public water park.

Hobbs State Park-Conservation Area - Hike and bike the trails. Don’t miss a visit to the Visitor Center for great interactive exhibits and a better understanding of the flora, fauna and geology of the area.

War Eagle Cavern - Wander through the 58-degree cavern, pan for semi-precious gems, and find your way through the Lost in the Woods Maze. New for 2018 is a Moonshine Mystery Shack.

War Eagle Mill and Bridge - Grab a fishing pole, a picnic and your camera. You’re set to enjoy the day at this historic site. Don’t miss lunch at The Bean Palace inside the mill, where you can also watch the water-powered grist mill grind some grain and peruse the gift store.

The Railyard Bike Park - Ride one of the eight total jump lines at this dirt jump bike park. Its signature design piece is a full-scale rail car set on railroad tracks that bikers ride through. From beginner to expert, striders to full suspension bikes, and dirt jumpers to BMX, The Railyard offers something for all skill levels and types of bikes. It has lights, a pavilion, restrooms, water fountains, bike wash station, observation decks, dog park and a large parking lot.

Lake Atalanta - Stroll the paved trail circling the lake. Take your fishing pole on the boardwalk, which stretches over the water with “bump out” areas for fishing. Cool off in the stream. Expend some energy on playground structures, the 10 miles of hiking trails, and the off-road mountain biking trails for all skill levels.
