Teens and tweens can be a tough crowd to entertain. Not only are they notoriously hard to impress, but they’re often stuck between childhood and adulthood – too grown up for kid attractions but not grown up enough for adult activities. Luckily Fort Myers is full of amazing attractions that will definitely spark the interest of your teens and tweens. Check out these fun things to do with teens and tweens in Fort Myers.
Defy Fort Myers
9370 Dynasty Drive, Fort Myers
Your adventurous teens and tweens will love Defy Fort Myers. It has so many exciting attractions inside, including over 35 trampolines, angled wall trampolines, launching decks, a rock wall, and ziplining. This 40,000-square-foot facility is an adventure-lover’s dream.
In addition to a fun open jumping space, this trampoline park also has some pretty cool features your teen/tween will enjoy, like the battle beams, ninja course, and trapeze. Everyone in the family enjoyed jumping in the trampolines, trying out the ninja course and practicing different tricks and jumps. It was one of the most fun afternoons we’ve had in a while. I love that the kids got a great workout as well, and so did the adults. Defy Fort Myers is open Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to midnight and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
Headpinz Glow Bowl
14513 Global Parkway, Fort Myers
If your teen or tween thinks regular bowling is boring, take them to Headpinz Glow Bowl for a change of pace. They’ll love rolling the ball down the lane toward the cool glowing pins thanks to black lights throughout the entire facility. And when they’re finished with their bowling game, they can also take in a game of laser tag, take a trip through the aerial ropes course, or play a few games in the game zone. Headpinz is open at 11 a.m. every day.
Escape Room Adventures
12995 South Cleveland Avenue, Suite 217, Fort Myers
Escape Room Adventures is a great place for families. With five different challenging escape rooms to choose from, they’ll never get tired of solving the puzzles at this cool Fort Myers attraction. We had the opportunity to do the Treasure of the Seven Keys room and it was so much fun! Filled with puzzles, clues, and riddles that we all had to solve together it was a great opportunity to spend quality time together.
Escape Room Adventure’s newest game, Espionage Boot Camp, tasks you with being a spy in a head-to-head competition against the clock. The attraction’s other rooms include a murder mystery, a search for treasure, a tween’s bedroom, and an alien landing spot.
