If you're looking for a family-friendly way to spend a Friday night in the Austin, Pflugerville or Round Rock areas, there's a new show in town that may be exactly what you're looking for. Catering to families, even those with young children like ours, Friday Night Live is the newest improv comedy show, hosted weekly on Friday nights at Austin's Park & Pizza.
Located off of Grand Avenue Parkway and IH-35, Austin's Park is situated just a short jot up the highway, and can be your go-to destination for family fun. Start your evening off right by letting the kiddos loose on the bumper car tracks, either as your passenger or riding on their own, followed by a ride on their kiddie coaster. If you don't feel the need for speed, grab some clubs and take a walk around the miniature golf course, or cool off as the weather heats up on the bumper boats! For when the weather gets too hot, you can still have a blast, heading indoors to the climbing wall, arcade games, bounce house for toddlers, and many other fun attractions!
From there, since you've surely worked up an appetite, you'll enjoy their recently renovated buffet and new food offerings, from delicious pizzas and delectable pastas to salads and dessert offerings. We certainly ate our fill!
After dinner, head on into the Friday Night Live studio, where two teams of improv comedians will compete for your laughs. Unlike most comedy shows, however, these comedians provide family-friendly laughs, sure to keep it clean enough for the littlest of guests. My two (ages 5 & 1) were welcomed with open arms and nary a raised eyebrow, even when my 16-month-old got fidgety and wanted to continuously leave and return from the room. So much of a family-friendly environment is not feeling as though you're unwelcome, and I certainly never once felt that way during our time at Austin's Park & Pizza! In fact, my daughter has already asked when we can return and has talked non-stop about beating the "big boys" during her solo drive around the track!
Austin's Park & Pizza is open daily at 16231 IH-35, Pflugerville, TX 78660.
