Coin Crazy fun

Serve Daily - - NEWS - By Deb­o­rah Good­man for Serve Daily

Af­ter ten years of want­ing to start a busi­ness to­gether, broth­ers Paul and John Sny­der have fi­nally re­al­ized their dream. Coin Crazy Fam­ily Fun Cen­ter, on 1024 Ex­press­way Lane in Span­ish Fork, will open its doors this Au­gust.

Af­ter mov­ing around quite a bit in their child­hoods, John and Paul set­tled down here in Utah and have been rais­ing their fam­i­lies in Springville and Maple­ton for nearly two decades.

Notic­ing there was a dearth of op­por­tu­ni­ties of this kind for fam­i­lies on this end of the county, John, and Paul, who owns Sny­der Dry­wall, started for­mu­lat­ing ideas for a rem­edy. Af­ter the com­pany John worked as vice pres­i­dent for was sold last year, the Sny­ders knew it was time to take the plunge and build Coin Crazy.

John says, “We love south Utah County and the feel of com­mu­nity in the area. We are so ex­cited to start this busi­ness where we live and bring the com­mu­nity we love a fun, fam­ily-ori­ented en­ter­tain­ment.”

Coin Crazy is 12,000 square feet, with party rooms, a laser tag arena, Holo­gate Vir­tual Re­al­ity, a pizza and snack bar par­lor, and a video game and re­demp­tion area. There are plans to ex­pand in the near fu­ture.

The ar­cade area will have the lat­est games and be based off a nickel credit sys­tem to keep things af­ford­able. They will be us­ing con­ve­nient cards that will hold both cred­its and re­demp­tion tick­ets in­stead of ac­tual nick­els, which can jam up the ma­chines.

The laser tag area is 3400 square feet of all new equip­ment and the lat­est, in­ter­ac­tive tech­nol­ogy. John ex­plains how unique it is: “We have teamed up with in­dus­try-lead­ing com­pa­nies to cre­ate a one-of-a-kind laser tag ex­pe­ri­ence. As you start, you will be head into a city, via sub­way, that af­ter a cat­a­clysmic event has been aban­doned ex­cept for rogue bands of in­vaders. We need your help to re­gain con­trol!” There are plans to cre­ate a laser tag league, but mul­ti­ple game modes, in­clud­ing multi-player and free-for-all, are avail­able.

The vir­tual re­al­ity op­tion has re­ceived a lot of ex­cite­ment and at­ten­tion. ”Holo­gate is pure awe­some­ness. It is a four-playCoin er, co­op­er­a­tive or ver­sus, vir­tual re­al­ity sys­tem. You will be able to fight ro­bots, drag­ons, and zom­bies, save a snow­ball bat­tle, or find your way out of a sink­ing sub­ma­rine! We will have three games when we open and a fourth will re­lease in mid-Septem­ber. Af­ter that, we will add two to four games a year to the sys­tem.”

Paul and John are thrilled they’ve fi­nally taken the leap and have re­al­ized their dream. “Most of all, we want to pro­vide en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ences and cher­ished mem­o­ries for our neigh­bors and friends, whether they come for a night of fun with friends and fam­ily, to cel­e­brate a spe­cial oc­ca­sion, or to build re­la­tion­ships with co­work­ers.”

Crazy will be open­ing in Span­ish Fork in Au­gust.
