iFly Student

IFLY

It’s all the thrill of traditional skydiving without needing the bravery to jump out of an airplane. Float on a cloud of air, suspended in a free-fall that leaves guests feeling 10 feet off the ground, even after leaving the building.

FATHERS DAY - ARNOLDS FAMILY FUN CENTER

ARNOLD'S FAMILY FUN CENTER

Pinball, go-karts, bounce equipment, bowling, video games, laser tag and an interactive zombie hunt, are all under one climate-controlled roof. The onsite restaurant is a convenient and cost-effective way to refuel and keep the fun unfolding.

Boyertown Museum

BOYERTOWN MUSEUM OF HISTORIC VEHICLES

The newest exhibit at the Boyertown Museum of Historic Vehicles is demonstrated during various June days (2, 4, 11, 16 and 18). Docents will fire up the 1872 forge at the Jeremiah Sweinhart Carriage Factory (within the museum) and pound away in display of how blacksmithing was done. Equal parts art and skill, this presentation is something to bellow over.

King of Prussia Mall Expansion

KING OF PRUSSIA MALL

More than 450 stores and restaurants can be explored in a targeted, got-to-fill-my-wardrobe manner. Or in a browsing, let’s-window-shop way. Either excursion can be a wonderful way to pass a sweltering summer day.

Attractions - Hidden Gems - Stoogeum

STOOGEUM

Teens may balk at the idea of going to a “museum” during summer vacation, but here’s one that is so outrageously silly they won’t be able to resist. It’s a three-story, comprehensive collection of memorabilia from The Three Stooges. Hours are limited to Thursdays for walk-ins; Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays are given over to groups of any size with an appointment.

Carousel at Pottstown

CAROUSEL AT POTTSTOWN

At $2 a ride, this is one of the most budget-friendly outings in all Montgomery County. But don’t let the small admission price lead you to believe this isn’t a big deal. This 1905 carousel has been lovingly restored and has become the pride of all of Pottstown borough.

Escape Room Mystery

ESCAPE ROOMS

Work together, collaborate with your puzzle-solving team and of course, keep an eye on the clock. Escape Room Mystery and Expedition Escape – two of the best locations in the county – have multiple rooms themed to different stories and reflecting various levels of difficulty.

ASHER'S CHOCOLATES

ASHER'S CHOCOLATES

Here’s a delicious way to pass a rainy summer afternoon. After watching the production floor, where conveyor belts of pretzels and potato chips get bathed in decadent chocolate, visitors can shop the onsite retail store. The “broken chocolate” bin is always a favorite, where cast-offs from the factory are sold at a discount. They may not have passed QA inspection, but they still taste yummy.

Valley Forge Park Nearby Attractions - Colonial Theater

THE MOVIES

East Greenville’s Grand Theater screens current releases in the gorgeous setting of a classic movie theater… at prices well below the neighborhood multiplex. The Colonial, on the other hand, runs a steady rotation of art films and smaller-scale general releases, as well as movies from the classic age of Hollywood and kid-themed matinees.
