That is the short story...wow.

Bingemans is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!

Threepeat, Middleman, Boy Oneder, Grandma and I headed out at 10:30 this morning to Bingemans in Kitchener. The drive was not so bad at one hour and 15 minutes. The entire drive was rain, rain, rain. It was still pouring when we parked at Bingemans. We started out with the passes. We knew that Boy Oneder and Middleman wanted to go paintballing, but wanted to see if the rain would go away. We also knew that Threepeat would be spending his day in the indoor playground. So, we opted for an all-day pass for Threepeat, which included unlimited use of the 25,000 square foot indoor playground and the indoor glow-in-the-dark mini-golf. Threepeat's pass was $8.95. Yes, you read that correctly...EIGHT DOLLARS AND NINETY-FIVE CENTS. Middleman and Boy Oneder got a mini-golf pass each for $5.00.

We headed over to the massive indoor play structure first. Middleman and Boy Oneder could not help themselves and although we didn't pay for them to play, five minutes after we arrived, they had their shoes off and were playing with Threepeat on the third tier of the structure. Ball pits, shooting balls, slides, climbers, ropes and hanging sliders don't begin to explain how much stuff there was to do here. It was AMAZING. Mum and I were loving every second of it from our comfy bench in the gated playground.

At noon, I called the boys out for lunch. Boy Oneder had a cheeseburger and fries, Middleman and Grandma had pizza, Threepeat had a hot dog and fries and I had poutine. DEEEEELISH!!!!!!!!!!!! After they wolfed their food down, it was time for the older boys to go to paintballing. Flag Raiders was adjacent to the Bingemans property and within walking distance, but because it was still raining, I drove to the next driveway. Grandma stayed with Threepeat while I settled Boy Oneder and Middleman. I bought them the half day pass at $27.95. The price included 100 paint balls, the gun rental, helmet/goggles and all the games they could play. I told the girl to run us a tab in case they wanted a drink or more paintballs, watched them walk to the play area and headed back to Grandma and Threepeat.

I found them in the indoor playground, Grandma smiling as she watched Threepeat running to and fro. The weather was clearing up and I began to think what an idiot I was for not bringing the boys' bathing suits because we would now miss out on the water park, which rivalled Canada's Wonderland for amazingness...is that a word? Anyway, at 3:30 (4 hours after we arrived), Threepeat was EXHAUSTED and cranky, so it was time to go. Boy Oneder had called about 10 minutes earlier to say they were starting another game, so the timing was perfect. Threepeat played a few arcade games and we headed over to pick up the older boys.

At the end of the day, three hours later, I had a tab of $70, which included 2 cokes, rental of the boys' jackets, 500 paintballs and 4 bottles of water. Awesome deal.

Middleman had a nice welt on his back and Boy Oneder had two sweet ones one his legs, but they were PUMPED. They LOVED it. There were nine maps and they said it was like playing Call of Duty in real life. They asked to play some more, but Threepeat was on the verge of a meltdown, so I had to tell them no.

On the way home, we all decided that we are going back on Friday. The boys will play paintball while Grandma, Threepeat and I head to the waterpark. The older boys might have a few rounds on the go-karts, which were closed today because of the weather.

If you live anywhere near the GTA, you MUST head out to Bingemans. This place has SO much bang for the buck and is soooo much fun.

I swear, they did not ask me to post this review...I just did cuz it was so awesome!!! Thank you Bingemans for a GREAT day at a GREAT price!!! See you Friday!!!! Pin It
