Kansas City After Hours
Are you in Kansas City to visit one of our world-class museums or fabulous family-friendly attractions? You’ll have a great time at these attractions that typically operate during daytime hours, but how can the vacation continue after the dinner hour? These are some of our favorite attractions to enjoy in the evening (or during the day in between tours, shows and exhibits).
iFLY is the ultimate bucket list attraction. Float on air as you experience body flight at this indoor skydiving facility. The KC iFly offers a variety of packages for all ages and abilities. Participation in an iFly experience includes training with a flight instructor certified by the IBA (International Bodyflight Association). Your instructor will teach proper body positioning and hand signals to help you prepare for your adventure. In the flight chamber, you will experience the wind tunnel as your own personal playground. This is a truly incredible and unforgettable must-experience adventure.
Eat, Bowl, Play
Main Event offers three locations in the metro where you’ll have a blast enjoying their state-of-the-art bowling, multi-level laser tag, thrilling high ropes adventure courses, video games, billiards and fast-casual restaurants. The 45,000- to 75,000-square-foot family entertainment centers offer specials throughout the week and great packages for groups.
Axe throwing is the latest rage in indoor entertainment. Blade & Timber offers two locations (Downtown and Leawood), Bury the Hatchet is in Overland Park, and Bad Axe is Downtown. At these entertainment venues, families, groups and friends enjoy an hour or two of axe throwing. Coaches offer instructions for first-timers, then your group is given a bay where you compete for the most points aiming for the bull’s eye. Several of the locations also offer food and drink, making this a super cool hangout.
BINGO Night and Burgers
Smitty’s Garage at Ward Parkway Mall is a fast-casual restaurant serving burgers, house made chips and appetizers. With a cool neighborhood vibe and tasty quick-to-serve dishes, they make their customers feel at home. Friday nights at 8:00, they host bingo night, and it’s free to play and win great prizes! So order a burger and fries and enjoy game night.
Laugh Out Loud
Comedy City is a live family-friendly improv comedy show on weekends. The shows are clean (offensive language isn’t allowed), funny and one-of-kind. Two comedy teams take suggestions from the audience to create improv sketches as they compete to earn your laughs. The shows are great for older kids, teens and adults.
Every weekend in the month, Kansas City celebrates our finest districts with art walks, wine walks, family festivals and special events. Read our complete KC Weekend Planner here.
