Best in Games: Three Floors of Fun for Families and Friends

When you visit Best in Games (BiG), it is hard to know which exciting activity to explore first! Located in Ypsilanti, BiG offers three floors of fun adventures for the whole family to enjoy. 

BiG’s website describes their facility as a labor of love that has taken over a decade to develop and has now become an “exciting evolution of gaming, high speed Go Karts, and extreme adventure.” 

Activities at BiG

Best in Games features 15 different attractions within their facility. These attractions include axe-throwing, motion simulators, laser tag, bumper cars, arcades, trampolines, and more. There is even a Smash It room in which visitors can let loose by throwing plates and breaking objects in a safe space. 

According to a representative of Best in Games, BiG caters to people of all ages. Activities that tend to be popular for both adults and children include laser tag and the trampoline park, which can be enjoyed by the whole family.

Offering starters, mains, flatbreads, salads, and desserts, Rocko’s has a large selection of food along with a full bar. 

You might also want to visit Sugar Sugar Bar, a Vegas-inspired bar on the second floor that offers candy-infused martinis and smoking goblets for a fancier night out.
