Starland in Hanover is an easy spot to stop when you need something to do with the kiddos. The outdoor Funpark features go karts, bumper cars, mini golf, a rock wall and batting cages. Indoors you can keep busy with laser tag, an arcade, and multiple indoor sports courts. Hungry? Grab a bite to eat at the Starland Cafe!
Starland has changed a lot since I was a kid. Remember this?
The double tiered driving range is long gone, and has been replaced by The U and Starland Funpark. We drove down to check out the Funpark on a day when we had a couple of hours to fill. It did not disappoint.
The bumper cars were a huge hit. My three kids (12, 10 & 8) laughed the entire time. Your ride is set to music and lasts for one song. They had a blast slamming into each other, or just spinning in circles!
We did some laps in the go karts as well. The older two rode solo, and I paired up with my 8-year-old (the attendant recommended we take a double car since these things are kind of tough to steer). There's a little "boost" button on your steering wheel that you get to use twice during your ride. Perfect for when you want to zip by your older brother on a straightaway!
Next time we come back down to Starland we're going to try a round of mini golf, and take a few turns on the outdoor rock wall. The indoor arcade and laser tag would be perfect to keep busy on a rainy day!
Everything that you purchase is loaded on to a Starland card that is swiped by the attendant at each ride/activity. You pay individually for each ride, and that can add up quickly, so it can be worth it to get the multi-ride options. Pricing is as follows:
