Feel the Thrill of Fun

The weekends may be short in comparison to the rest of the week, but they’re a good forty-eight hours that shouldn’t be wasted; it’s the perfect opportunity to catch up on important errands outside the office, to catch up on that much-needed sleep, or it’s a time you can really reward yourself and your loved ones for all your hard efforts and triumphs. Here at the Vela luxury apartment homes in Tempe Arizona, our expansive neighborhood gives plenty of options to let off steam and have some fun, even those with rollercoasters.

Set up about twenty miles away from Tempe and Vela Luxury apartments – a twenty to thirty-minute drive – stands one of Arizona’s largest theme parks: Castles ‘n’ Coasters. Having started as a miniature golf resort in the 1970’s, the amusement park has since expanded and now includes 10 acres of exciting attractions. Play in the classic four miniature golf courses; race against your friends to the checkered finish line in the speedy go-karts; immerse yourself in the new XD Dark Ride, featuring 4-D motion along with a shooting competition between comrades; rush through the air on the zip line Sky Wire; work on your balance in the precariously high On the Ropes; speed along in one of Arizona’s biggest rollercoasters; and so much more. Tickets are available online depending on your preference: the regular admission to a round of mini-golf is $10 per person, Bronze Passes allow unlimited access to all the rides, Silver Passes add a round of golf, and Gold also adds a $10 gift card to the arcade. Group and military discounts are available as well. Hours vary depending on the day of your visit, with most of the rides open only on weekends.

Allow yourself some fun this upcoming weekend in an amusement experience to remember. Visit the Vela to tour our luxury apartments, and then stop by Castles ‘n’ Coasters with your friends to have a blast.
