My wife and I took my son for his 6th B-day with several other kids over the weekend. My wife's truck got broken into in the parking lot. His B-day presents were stolen and several other items were stolen. We called boomers to report the incident and the employee couldn't tell up from down. Or just didn't care because it's probably a frequent event there.. or worse, you can't rule out that thing called collusion, until otherwise substantiated!. The employee said they will check the camera's to see if they can see the incident. Didn't ask for a vehicle description, time frame, parking location, or anything else that might be pertinent for video review. Let me guess video review is "Inconclusive", right? It is Tuesday, still no return call from them to at least say "we don't know what we are doing, nor do we care" because remember, you are not responsible for vehicle damage or theft of personal property in your own parking lots. Therefore, I guess that means security is not necessary. A simple call to humor us, and at-least make us believe an attempt was made would have been a nice gesture. Probably even prevented "MORE" (I think is appropriate judging by the other reviews posted) bad reviews. Are you listening Management? Avoid boomers, or just make sure you carry all of your belongings with you. So the thugs can just take it from your person, and not out of your vehicle. No more Boomers for me!

Before buying wristbands for your kids who are too short why don't you look at all of the HEIGHT REQUIREMENTS for each ride.. the signs are all over the place.
Since the last "review" posted (6-17-08)
Every employee except for 3 or 4 has either quit or has been fired.. Still, most employees are quite young, but their training has gone more indepth into better guest service... In the past year atleats 2 people who have "lost their temper" with a guest has been fired...
I agree, pricing IS too high and I'm sure the economic decline in the area doesn't help any, but to combat this problem they have added many specials and deals to help guests save money, all of which are located on their website)

WE TOOK OUR KIDS TO BOOMERS ON A SUNDAY AFTERNOON AND THE PLACE LOOKED LIKE A GHOST TOWN BUT NOW I KNOW WHY. WE PAID $120 FOR WRISTBANDS BECAUSE OUR KIDS ARE NOT TALL ENOUGH TO GO ON THEIR OWN. WE WAITED IN FRONT OF EACH ATTRACTION FOR ABOUT 15 MINUTES BECAUSE THERE WAS ONLY 1 EMPLOYEE FOR ALL THE OUTDOOR RIDES. ALSO, THESE EMPLOYEES WERE ALL IN THEIR TEENS AND SO RUDE TO US AND OUR CHILDREN LIKE THEY WERE ANNOYED THAT THEY HAD TO HELP US. AFTER ABOUT 45 MINUTES OF EXTREMELY RUDE SERVICE AND NASTY SMIRKS FROM GRUNGY TEEN EMPLOYEES WE DEMANDED A REFUND AND LEFT. ALSO, I OVERHEARD ANOTHER LADY COMPLAINING THAT SHE PAID A FORTUNE AND COULDN'T FIND ANYONE TO ASSIST HER CHILDREN ONTO A RIDE.

This is a good place to go if you like video games. However, their minature golf course is not the greatest. There are only three golf courses and it does not take hardly any time to go through them. The batting cages were the best part I thought. There are lots of children there having fun.

Boomers (Formerly known as Family Fun Centers), is a fun adventure to waste a couple of hours. They've got a two-story arcade, with tons of fun games for everyone to enjoy, and a cafe to eat at when you're hungry. They've also got go-karts, which is one of the more popular attractions at Boomers, and the main reason most people go. They have fairly decent prices, especially their specials, but you can really only do so much here before it gets boring. Take a couple hours out of a Saturday and visit Boomers, it'll be a fun way to while away the morning.

We had my friends birthday party here. We are all of age, but we still had a great time! The go-carts are a blast! Especially after having a few drinks! You can get some good deals depending on what time of day you're there, and what day of the week you go.

Boomer's is a large amusement park located in El Cajon. It has batting cages, go-karts, bumper boats, 2 mini golf courses, arcade games, a small Ferris wheel, a small train roller coaster, airplane ride, and rock wall.
At first glance, the place looks a bit run-down, as though the lineoleum can never quite scrub clean. Kids tend to ignore such things and focus on the fun. On one side there are bigger kid/adult arcade games and on the other games more suitable for little kids.
We had our daughter's birthday party here and everyone had a ball. Everything was included in our package. We expected the pizza to be fair but instead it was delicious! Some of the best sauce I've had in ages.
There are 2 mini golf courses, one in "wild west" theme and the other in a sort of fairy tale theme. When we went at night, some of the lights were burned out and it was difficult to see. The bumper boats are loved by kids. Our kids are too little for go-karts, batting, and rock climbing so we skipped those. The train goes around a mini roller coaster track, then stops in the middle and goes the opposite way. The plane goes up and down, controlled by the kid. These rides look as old as any of the traveling carnival rides, but they don't appear to go fast enough to be dangerous. The Ferris wheel spins quite fast.
Going in the mornings on weekdays is best as it is virtually deserted. The downside is it can be hard to find an employee to run the rides for you. At night, the older teens come out and it gets more crowded. We went on a cloudy Saturday and it wasn't too busy at all.
Tuesdays they have $10 specials.

This chain seems to be growing by the day. Basically Boomers! takes over local put-put golf courses and is turning them all into a nationwide empire. The facilities are enjoyable and good for a fun middle school/high school date or just some friends bored during the weekend. Clean and well kept up, a good spot also for children's birthday parties.
