Bunker Beach Water Park

Reviewed By corfu11 - Minneapolis

We've gone for the last several years and loves it every time. There are six water slides, a lazy river, rock climbing walls, basketball and a wave pool that is pretty intense but great fun.

Several food options as well.

48" seems to be the mark you need to hit to be able to go on the bigger slides.

Just go!

Hammerheart Brewery

Reviewed By Bjorn P - Saint Paul, Minnesota

Only stopped by for a short visit. The specialize in smoked and casked beers. The rotational handle was a smoked IPA today that I thought was very interesting. Clear smoke flavor leads, hoppy finish.

Atmosphere is fine. Seems like it would be better suited to a mid-winter night than the beautiful day it was this afternoon. Cool Nordic themes which I like. Friendly sever.

Coon Rapids Dam Regional Park

Reviewed By ann marie j - Minneapolis, Minnesota

nice stop on the the regional trail bike corridor. Small public area has clean restrooms, as well as machines for snacks. Several times, we have encountered volunteers with high powered telescopes showing the visitors great views of nesting eagles, etc. I particularly like standing on the wide, breezy bridge over the river, connecting the park areas on either shore of the Mississippi river. It is wide, allowing you to linger and enjoy the cool mist arising from the water, and being mesmerized by the rushing, bubbling water, and the roar of the dam.

Also, the Park offers summer programs for kids, exploring the wild, fishing, art, etc.

Very nice walking trails just a couple miles or so wonderful for getting close to nature. Even have bridges on the water (floating) you can walk over.

Blue Sun Soda Shop

Reviewed By Lisa T - New Brighton, Minnesota

This place is amazing! The sodas are arranged by flavor. They have limited edition Virgil's root beer, old fashioned candy, and a new large selection of Milka from Germany. While you wait for your soda to chill by the cash register you can play pinball and look over a half wall to the 1952 bottling machine as they bottle Whistler soda on site (49 flavors as I last heard). Then you can eat free popcorn with your soda. They have staff pick soda's near the front of the store if you need help narrowing your selection.

Brown Family Adventure Park

Reviewed By ShannaS8 - Rice Lake, Wisconsin

My son needs to have lots of gross motor play time every day to burn lots of toddler energy. It was nasty outside so we tried the Family Adventure Park and it was perfect. He's 1 1/2 so both the toddler area and larger play structure were great for him. (I obviously helped him through the larger one.) We went on a Tuesday afternoon so there were only two other kids there, which was nice to enjoy the space with a toddler.

I also want to note that this is a family-owned business, and their customer service was top-notch and super friendly. We came 45 mins before closing and she charged me only $5. Plus when I forgot my pin number (it's cash only) the owner said I could just mail a check.

I noticed the hours on here are wrong, so you should check their website before planning your outing.

Goony Golf of Spring Lake Park

Reviewed By crzymallard - Saint Paul, Minnesota

This is the second time I have brought my 7 year old daughter to this mini golf location. It is a little run down, but she always has a blast. There are three 18 hole courses, two of the courses have cheesy/fun characters hanging out and the third course is a little more challenging, which my daughter had fun trying out. At the end of two of the courses you can try and "ring the bell" for a free round of golf. The staff was helpful and made sure we started in the right location. I think this is a great way to get your kid off the couch and out of the house on the weekends, we will be back again to try and win that free round of golf!

We took an adventure to the dam and walked around for about an hour. The grandchildren loved watching the water flow over the dam and crash below. It was a good way to spend time together. The bike and walking paths are great!

AMC Coon Rapids 16

Reviewed By Blaine G - Coon Rapids

Between Christmas and New year's, my wife and I went to our local theatre. We would have booked our tickets online, but the website was not user friendly. Subsequent tries at looking at the movie schedules were just as frustrating.
Anyways, went to the theatre , bought tickets and selected seats. The awards program that AMC has enacted is frustrating to the normal customer , that does not want to sign up. After getting put in a slower line because of the program, I received the poorest service that I have ever had at this theatre. ( I've been going here since 2004. ).

My only suggestion to the management, clean up your act and take care of your OTHER customers or they will no longer be loyal....
