We Put the FUN in Fundraising

When you think of fundraising, do you immediately start to sweat? Don’t panic–raising money for your school or organization can seem like a huge effort, but at FunQuest in Lynchburg we’ve made it easy!

Here’s how it works: you contact us about your organization’s needs. Together we will settle on a date that works best–fundraising events are available the first Tuesday of every month from 4:00 to 8:30. and then FunQuest will give you 100 tickets for that night. Your organization sells the tickets, which include skating and skate rental, and keeps all of the proceeds! We recommend your organization charge $3 to $4 per ticket, which is a discounted price from regular admission to these events. Make sure families know about the discount they’re getting when they buy through you, and also tell them about our other great attractions (not included in ticket price) like laser tag and PlayQuest. dollar bills

When you host a fundraising event with FunQuest, you don’t have to worry about setting up, cleaning up, decorating, providing food, or anything else. All you have to do is advertise, sell tickets and enjoy your event! We’ll handle the rest. Whether you’re raising money for your school, church, scout troupe, choir, youth group, or anything else, a night of skating at a great price for a great cause practically sells itself. Our friendly, dedicated staff will work with you to make sure your event is profitable, fun, and easy.

Family Fun Night at FunQuest

August is National Family Fun Month! With school starting again and summer vacations behind us, what better time to reconnect with family for these simple, easy ideas for family fun night?

  • Movie Night. Who needs to go out to the movies? Set up a movie theatre at home! Get some candy and make popcorn, turn the lights off, tear tickets at the door, turn off all cell phones, and settle on the couch for a family movie night. Extra creative kids can even put together costumes to match the movie.
  • Volunteer Day. Research non-profit organizations in your area and sign up to volunteer with one. Whether you and your kids want to help clean up a park, plant trees, or make meals for the homeless, a day of giving back to the community will be a great way to bond. family fun
  • Family Fun and Fitness Night. Every Thursday from 4:30 to 8:00, families (one child plus one parent) skate for free at FunQuest in Lynchburg, VA! Skate rental, if needed, is $4. This special lasts through August 31st and is a great way to spend time together and get some exercise. Check out our other specials as well!
  • Individual Kid Night. Especially in big families, it can be hard to focus on each individual. Plan a couple of special nights for parents to spend with just one child. This doesn’t have to be fancy–even a simple dinner can feel special when it’s just with mom and dad!

Remember, all that’s really needed for a family fun night are two things: your family, and a desire to have fun. FunQuest in Lynchburg is a safe, clean, affordable place for your family to enjoy being together. Put your thinking cap on and let us know your favorite activities to do with your family!

Kids Skate Free!

It’s the middle of summer, and while school starts soon, there’s still the question of what to do with kids now. Bringing them to FunQuest in Lynchburg for safe, clean fun in our indoor facility is a great start, but even with all our specials it can eat up the budget. That’s why we’re so proud to participate in Kids Skate Free.

When you sign your kids up for Kids Skate Free, you’ll receive a pass for them to skate for free at FunQuest once every week! Your weekly passes are good any day of the week, during the following hours:

12:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Friday and Saturday
12:00 pm – 10:00 pm
12:00 om – 6:00 PM

Not only that, but every Tuesday each child who uses a Kids Skate Free pass can also play a game of laser tag or enjoy PlayQuest! Skate rental is $4 per person, if needed, and passes may not be used with parties or group events. Children need to be accompanied by a parent (non-skating parents are admitted free). Please remember that the times we accept passes are subject to change.  

Tearing kids away from video games and TV can be tricky, especially when it’s summer and the temperatures are climbing. With Kids Skate Free, parents have a great way to get kids up and moving every week, and at a truly unbeatable price.

The Science of Roller-Skating

Are your kids engaging with STEM curriculum? Science, technology, engineering, and math are vital fields for kids to learn about. But more and more students—especially middle school and high school girls—are losing interest in STEM lessons. So how do you re-engage students  in a world with so much white noise? That’s where we come in.

STEM Field Trips in Lynchburg

two kids with chemistry setWe’re combining fun and education to create an incredible field trip that both kids and teachers will love. Our lessons teach kids to be creative, love learning, and look at STEM in new and innovative ways. We have lessons tailored for students of all ages, as well as STEM lessons for homeschool groups. We even have curriculum options so teachers can reinforce the lessons learned in the classroom. Choose from one of these interactive STEM lessons for kids:

  • Learn about friction, area, perimeter, and geometry in The Science of Roller-Skating
  • Get kids invested in force and friction, as well as diameter and circumference in Motion and Rink Design
  • Help kids learn about the science of sound, including beats per minute, frequency, and speed in Acoustics and Rink Design
  • Learn about lights and lighting design in Engineering Magic and Lighting

When the learning is over, it’s time for the kids to put their new knowledge to good use! Let your students experience motion, acoustic, and physical fitness with 2 hours of open skating at FunQuest after each 1 hour lesson. We’ll even throw in a few tips about staying healthy through regular skate fitness.
