Looking for another option for family fun on New Year's Eve? Magic Mountain Fun Centers is preparing to break the tradition of adults-only New Year's Eve celebrations by offering a fun, family-friendly celebration for all ages from 5-9 p.m., Friday, Dec. 31 at the Magic Mountain Fun Centers at 8350 Lyra Dr. and 5890 Scarborough Blvd.

The celebration will replicate the exciting, non-alcoholic elements of a late night New Year Eve's Party with balloons, games, a pizza buffet, party hats and noise makers. A variety of fun activities will be offered throughout the evening including unlimited free play on the video games in the Magic Mountain arcades, balloon drops (with prizes in almost every balloon) and friendly family competitions with parent-child teams, Just Dance, and Karaoke for all ages.

Each guest will receive Magic Mountain attraction tickets which can be used at anytime during the evening for admission to attractions including laser tag, bumper cars, miniature golf (weather permitting) and the multi-level KidsGym climbing areas.

Families can break for the pizza buffet with kid-friendly favorites like a salad bar, gourmet and regular pizzas, soft drinks and flavored "apple pie" and "strawberry jam" pizza desserts.

Admission to this fun family event is $19.95 per guest, ages 3 years and older. (Children, ages 2 and younger, are free.) Reservations are needed and can be made by calling Magic Mountain at 614-840-9600.
