Tualatin Valley is a gamer’s paradise for kids of all ages. Langer’s Entertainment Center in Sherwood offers bowling, a redemption arcade, rock wall, laser tag and more. In Hillsboro, Next Level Pinball Museum and Arcade features more than 475 pinball machines and retro and contemporary arcade games.

Families with older kids (8-10 years and older) may like solving puzzles together at an escape room, such as Portland Escape Rooms in Beaverton. Their “Arcade” escape room game is easy enough for first-timers and younger members of the family, yet still exciting enough for teens and adults.

Squeeze a little education into the kids’ spring break at Hillsboro’s Rice Northwest Museum of Rocks and Minerals. This museum is a gem–literally–as it houses the largest collection of its kind in the Pacific Northwest. Rocks, gems, petrified rocks and more captivate kids and adults alike.
