Family Fun Center Brightens Huntington Station

Brad Rosen of Station Sports Family Fun Center is using his business to give back to the community.

is bringing entertainment to Huntington Station like never before.

Once a New Balance manufacturer and vacant space, two sites on opposite sides of Depot Road have been transformed into an indoor arcade and an outdoor miniature golf, batting cage and target paintball center.

Owner Brad Rosen, a Huntington native and graduate of Cold Spring Harbor High School, said he got inspiration for the family fun center from his family. Rosen's uncle owned 5 Towns Mini Golf and Batting in Lawrence for 34 years.

After nearly 10 months of construction, renovation was completed earlier this year. The arcade opened in January and outdoor activities began in March.

“It took less than a year with the help of Huntington,” Rosen said. “It was one project that had no objection.”

Offering minature golf, target paintball, batting cages, wiffle ball, a snack shop, party room and video game arcade, the center has been host for various camp outings, fundraisers and birthday parties.

One of the more popular options customers go for is the “triple play plus” which gives customers a round of mini golf, a round of paintball, a batting token and 18 arcade tokens for $15.

Rosen said the center, part of ongoing urban renewal development plan in Huntington Station, gives families a place to go and a fun-filled, safe environment.

“We’re giving Huntington Station, and all of Huntington, what it deserves," Roswen said.

The center is open from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., seven days per week.

I must say it does make the area look a lot better. Now we just need to get rid of the car shop. They take all of the road space and it looks horrible. It's a two way street on top of East 3rd but try to get thru somedays is terrible because they have the cars parked on the street instead of their lot. For such a small shop they sure take up a lot of space. Thank you Mr. Rosen for helping to improve the station, wishing you lots of luck and success.

i think this is great for local businesses and the community overall. having the ability to do a variety of different things at one place is pretty sweet for young folks. who would of thought mini golf and paintballing would take place at the same place. im actually big on paintballing and get my gear/guns from http://airsplat.com/ and would not mind taking up mini golf if it was at the same place.
