Adventure Zone celebrating 20 years

May 22, 2017 12:37PM ● By Today's Family
With the warmer weather, parents are looking for outdoor activities they can participate in with their kids.  Adventure Zone Family Fun Center in Geneva-on-the-Lake makes being active outdoors affordable and safe for families around the area.

“This is a positive family experience,” says owner Donniella Winchell.  “It’s an affordable atmosphere where families will feel comfortable and safe.”

A short drive for all of Lake, Geauga, Ashtabula, and Eastern Cuyahoga counties, Adventure Zone lives up to its promise of being a “positive family experience.”  On site, you’ll find a giant arcade, merry-go-round, Adventure Krawl, a kid’s play area, go-karts, miniature golf, batting cages, bungee trampoline, climbing and repelling walls, snack shop and dual urban zip line.  New this year is The Drop.

The facility also features children and adult bicycle rental and surreys, open-bodied pedal bicycles that accommodate up to a family of five, and a pavilion that can seat up to 150 for family reunions and company outings or can be divided in smaller sections to accommodate birthday groups.

“We have a great property with a view of the lake and we wanted to use it,” says Winchell. “The state park’s bike path goes along the shoreline and in the evening, you can see a beautiful sunset.”

In addition to these activities, Adventure Zone hosts birthday parties and group outings such as Kids Fun Days, Toddler Fun Days and Parent-Teacher/Church Youth Group fundraisers.  Adventure Zone caters to home-schooled children with their classes that teach about the history of Geneva-on-the-Lake and the history of the carousel.  Each of these outings offers families and the community as a whole, the opportunity to take advantage of all that this entertainment center has to offer.

Winchell, her husband Larry, and their partner Don Woodward have owned the business for 20 years and it’s a family affair.

“My kids and grandkids all work here during the summer months,” says Winchell.  “We also hire about 50 summer employees each year.  This business is owned by a family that cares about families.”
