About Make Believe Family Fun Center

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we stop playing.”

– George Bernard Shaw

In today’s world of go, go, go it’s easy to let what’s really important slip through the cracks.  There are always bills to pay, homework to finish and a million things to do before bedtime.  It’s hard to find the time to reconnect as a family.  So when you do find a free Saturday, how will you spend it?  Your daughter may love rock climbing while your son prefers video games.  Your spouse may be a master of laser tag, but you’d rather test your skills on a ropes course.  It seems every family entertainment center you find is geared only towards the kids, leaving the parents stuck on the sidelines.  We know, we’ve been there.

We also knew we couldn’t be the only family in Cleveland looking for a place to disconnect from the world.  Wishing for a place where we could recharge our mental reserves and invest in some serious family playtime.  So we created Make Believe Family Fun Center and chose the centrally located community of Parma in which to build it.  We hired an amazing staff that’s dedicated to going above and beyond to ensure your family has the best day each and every time you visit.  At Make Believe we want to help you and your family create memories that will last a lifetime.

So come, spend a day playing and remember why family time is so important.   On behalf of our founders Yuri and Elena, their kids and our entire staff:

Why We Created Make Believe

Hello, we are Yuri and Elena the founders and owners of Make Believe Family Fun Center in Parma, Ohio.  As parents we understand the challenges that modern families face.  We rush around taking care of work, school and endless to-do lists, all the while missing what’s really most important – quality family time.  We started this project back in 2013 because we saw the need for a place where families could do things together.  Somewhere that parents don’t have to just sit and watch, but can join in the fun alongside their kids.  When you play, explore and interact together as a family an amazing thing happens – lasting memories are created.

At Make Believe Family Fun Center we have state-of-art attractions, enchanting surroundings, great food and drinks all supported by unparalleled guest service, providing a truly one of a kind experience for families in Northeast Ohio.  While our unique attractions may be the reason you first visited, you will find that it was the enthusiasm and attention to detail by our staff that you remembered most.  It is our goal that you felt you were treated like a long lost friend.  Like in your family, it’s the people that truly make it special.

Life goes by way too fast, and before you know it your kids are on their own. We want to become a part of the story they will one day tell their own children: “Families that play together stay together!”

Thank you for allowing us to share our family moments, make a difference in the community, and create a place where your family experiences will be remembered for generations.
