This past weekend, my family had a fun Saturday at Boomers, and there was something for everyone to do. Boomers has two South Florida locations in Dania Beach and Boca Raton. We usually make it to Boomers Dania Beach once or twice a year, if we can find some great coupons.
The frugal thing about Boomers is that you can determine your own family budget, and then use coupons to expand it. If you are a member of the Boomers’ birthday club (and you can sign up each child too), you will get extra great coupons around your birthday. Right now kids even receives a free playpass on their birthday!
Our kids also earn Boomers coupons for good grades with their report card, and sometimes we find coupons at local free events. The kids can earn more tickets for good grades, homework and attendance by bringing in their report cards and progress reports. See more details on the Boomers kids rewards program here.

Another way to keep your Boomers trip frugal is by keeping your Boomers cards, as this should save you a dollar per card each time you go.
Ways to save at Boomers:
- Sign up for the Boomers Birthday Club to get monthly coupons + extra coupons on your birthday
- Earn tickets with good grades
- Parents ride free, where an adult is required.
- Buy unlimited passes and discounted tickets online before you go.
- Kids under 5 play mini golf free.
- Get a free pass on your birthday
- Check out the weekly promotions online
My kids were extra excited this time around, because each one of them had moved up over the next height level, which meant more fun. My oldest son was able to go on the big go-kart track by himself, and my middle son was able to go as a passenger on both tracks.
If you are planning on spending the entire day at Boomers, you may want to look into getting a Boomers Superpass for the kids. The grown-ups really do not need their own pass, as they ride free if a passenger is required for the younger kids. A Superpass is $39.99, if you buy it at Boomers, or you can purchase it for $34.99 online. If you have a younger child, you may want to go with the Junior Super pass for $31.99 in store or $29.99 online. Children 5 and under play mini golf for free!
The Superpass includes unlimited mini golf, bumper boats, turbo track, family speedway, laser tag, rock wall, sidewinner, flame thrower and family ride park.
Since we do not have any game consoles at our house, all three of our boys loved the unlimited games (non-ticket games) part of the Boomers superpass. Our oldest son is all about planes and the military, and he found a favorite game hidden away in a corner. The Blazing Angels game was a big draw, and we got stuck at this corner for quite a while.
The mini golf track at Boomers in Dania Beach always impresses me, and I love the miniature houses. Mini golf is something that everyone in our family can participate in, and we can easily spend an hour just playing together. Kids under 5 play mini golf for free, so this is also a frugal option for families with younger children.
This year one of the biggest highlights for our two older boys were definitely the Turbo Track Go Karts. Our 10-year-old son finally met the height requirements to drive on his own, and our six-year-old son could ride as a passenger with his dad. Don’t forget to bring closed shoes, when you head to Boomers.
Everyone in the Frugality Is Free Family had a blast at our Boomers Saturday, and we spent almost five hours enjoying Boomers in Dania Beach, Fl. As a frugal family, Boomers is a part of our frugal family fun dates, because we can make a trip to Boomers as expensive as we want it to be, or as cheap as we need it to be. We have learned from experience that getting to Boomers at opening time will ensure that we get the most out of our day, because this means shorter lines. This Saturday there were barely any lines though, and the kids enjoyed being able to pick and choose which attractions they wanted to go on.
