Fast Lane Fun Park opens its doors

Fast Lane Fun Park might be on the outskirts of town, but it is one place worth the drive.The park currently has several attractions available for everyone to enjoy. And, with a large property, the park has big plans for the future.

The most striking feature of the park is the waterfall that is a staple of the miniature golf course. The course itself offers a good challenge for experienced players while offering fun for players of any level.

The course is well constructed, expertly maintained and of the highest quality, a rarity in a town not dominated by the tourism industry. The course has lights for round of miniature golf at night, once the weather improves and the park stays open later.

After walking past the miniature golf course, a large rock climbing wall comes into view. The wall is part of the Fun Zone, a collection of attractions. In addition to the wall, guests can enjoy the Monkey Jump, playground, swings, and car train ride.

If guests are looking for something more competitive, Fast Lane offers an impressive paintball field, known as “The Pit.”

Hallmarked by a large fallen tree in the center of the field, players can move up and down the field behind a wide variety of bunkers and other obstacles.

In addition to single guests, the park caters to parties, groups and team building activities. With the Party Pavilion ready to serve just about any size group, and a full concession bar, Fast Lane wants to host your next party.

Guests can ride to their party in style in the park’s stretch Hummer limousine.

With these open attractions, the park is already worth checking out, but ambitious expansion plans will set Fast Lane apart from other entertainment venues in town.

Plans are in the works for a Go-Kart track to be completed in mid-April and it will be open to all ages.

In addition to the current paintball field, a second field will be built. Unlike “The Pit,” the new field will be tournament-style with inflatable bunkers.

Two other attractions in the works are an air-soft field and Water Wars. Water Wars is a water balloon competition where guests can soak each other when the weather improves.

Until then, the winter hours for the park are from noon until dusk on Friday through Sunday.

Once the weather turns a bit warmer, the park will have expanded hours.

If local temperatures drop below 45 degrees Fahrenheit, the park will close. Guests can call 931-526-FAST (3278) for updates on the park’s status.

Parties can request special reservations with all guidelines found on the park’s Web site: http://www.fastlanefunpark.com.

Fast Lane Fun Park is off to a great start with ambitious plans for growth. In a town desperate for this type of entertainment venue, the sky is the limit for Fast Lane.
