Ripon Powerplay has been one of the most frequented birthday spots recently; my family has attended two birthday parties at this location within the last month. Both my 8-year-old son and 11-year-old daughter had a blast, skating, playing hockey and rocking out to music!
One party was a roller-hockey party, the other was a sneaker-hockey party, the difference being that the former had the kids on skates and the latter did...more
