Family Fun Center will reopen in San Diego over Labor Day weekend for the first time in 22 years

The Huish family that opened this venue in 1974 as the Family Fun Center, is back again as the owners after selling the center to the Boomers Corporation in 1998.

SAN DIEGO — As places begin to reopen all across San Diego County, there is one business that hasn't been open for quite some time.

The miniature golf and fun-for-all venue in Kearny Mesa will be reopening Saturday as the Family Fun Center once again after taking over Boomers.

The Huish family that opened this venue in 1974 as the Family Fun Center, is back again as the owners after 22 years.

"We are excited to be back. We love San Diego. We love its people and we are just happy to be here," said the owner, Scott Huish.

Huish and his brother are in charge of business now. Their father, John, was the original owner and sold the center to the Boomers Corporation in 1998.

Boomers filed for bankruptcy in March of this year.

"We are a family business. We care about the small things, the details. We are about our guests," said Huish.

After months of renovation and upgrading, The Family Fun Center is finally ready for all of San Diego to visit.

"The biggest draw to get people in is to get people out," said Huish.

Some attractions like the bumper boats and arcade are still closed due to COVID, but the go-karts are raring and ready to go.

And the two 18 hole miniature golf courses are all set for players of all ages.

"One is Story Book Land. And one is Western Land that takes you through an old mining town," said Huish.

There is outdoor and indoor dining but at a limited capacity.

"We have pizza, burgers, sandwiches, chicken strips, fries and ice cream," said Huish.

The Family Fun Center will reopen for the first time in 22 years Saturday at 11 a.m. and will close at 8 p.m.
