Thanks to a partnership between the city of Olathe and the Olathe Girls Softball Association, the Olathe Girls Softball Complex was built so local and traveling softball teams could have a reliable, high quality facility to play at. The complex’s amenities include seven lighted softball fields, a playground, picnic shelter, and batting cages. This 16 acre park knows how to run a tournament, so you can focus on planning the extracurricular activities for when your team has free time. Coming up with a fun trip itinerary shouldn’t be difficult since Olathe and the surrounding area provide plenty of things to do.

Things to Do

Main Event Entertainment

The main event attraction for your trip goes by the very accurate name Main Event Entertainment. Expect to take multiple trips to this place. It’s guaranteed that your team is going to have a blast here. First up on the activity list is bowling. Main Event’s lanes are decked out with electronic scoring systems that automatically score every frame. While you’re waiting for your turn, you can watch sports or a TV show on one of the many big screen televisions. Bowling at night is a whole different experience. Main Event turns on the black lights and the whole alley glows bright, neon colors.

Bowling and arcades go hand in hand. The one at Main Event raises the bar for arcades to the next level. Stocked with over 100 games and virtual reality experiences, it’s a gamer’s paradise. Play a gigantic Pac-Man machine, Space Invaders Frenzy, which puts a new twist on an old classic, or any of the other engaging video games. Next up is the laser tag arena. This activity lends itself to large teams, so it’s an ideal activity to get everyone involved. Run around, formulate strategies, and compete against your opponents under the black lights for the number one spot.

For the dare devils of the group, the Gravity Ropes course is the number one attraction. Using your physical strength and creativity, find out if you have what it takes to navigate through all of the obstacles standing in your way. Hindrances like a swaying bridge, balancing planks, and tight ropes are going to force you to dig deep if you hope to overcome the course. You must be at least 48 inches tall to try Gravity Ropes. Main Event Entertainment offers various packages that you can take advantage of whenever you visit. 11950 N Kansas City Rd, Olathe, KS 66061

AMC Dine-in Studio 28

There aren’t many movie theaters bigger than AMC Dine-in Studio 28. Boasting 28 screens and showing an average of 23 movies at any given time, this cinema is all about options. The selection of movies means that everyone on your team can find a movie that peaks their interest. Since this theater is close to Olathe Girls Softball Complex and plays so many movies, there’s a good chance that multiple show times will line up making it easy for your team to split up and watch a couple different film instead of all going to the same one. AMC isn’t just about movie options. They also like to mix things up in the food department. You’ll find a full-service kitchen and sizeable menu that you can order from directly in your seat. Choose from sandwiches, tacos, brisket or bacon mac and cheese, and so much more. 12075 S Strang Line Rd, Olathe, KS 66062

Ernie Miller Nature Center

Become one with nature at the Ernie Miller Nature Center. This is a popular bird watching location due to the diversity of birds that frequent the area. The center even provides you with a cheat sheet of all the birds that live there to help you identify which ones you spot. Don’t forget to bring your binoculars. In addition to bird watching, there are multiple trails that run throughout the nature center where you can go for a peaceful walk and explore the park. There’s also a small lake and babbling stream that you can lounge by. Another bonus to keep in mind is that there’s no charge to enjoy this tranquil attraction. 909 KS-7, Olathe, KS 66061

Urban Air Adventure Park

Kids can be quite the energetic bunch. That’s certainly no secret. If your team starts to get off the rails a bit after they finish up at Olathe Girls Softball Complex, you can rely on Urban Air Adventure Park to bring them back down to Earth. Urban Air’s facility in Overland Park houses six trampoline activities, an obstacle course, and playground. APEX and The Bowl are essentially the same activity, but for different age groups. Both of them are areas with floors and walls lined of trampolines where you can bounce, flip, and catapult around as much as you want. APEX is for anyone over the age of seven while The Bowl is for kids seven and under.

The Dropzone is the spot to go when you want to practice some awesome flips with the comfort of knowing that you’ll land on a multi-chambered soft bag. Enter the Ultimate Dodgeball arena and get ready for the most intense, high energy game of dodgeball you ever have and ever will play. Two other trampoline attractions are The Runway and Slam Dunk. In addition to trampolines, Urban Air has a Warrior Obstacle Course that challenges all who attempt it. You’re going to have to dig deep to conquer the zip line, unstable bridge, and the other hurdles that are in your way. The indoor playground is a much less intense version of the obstacle course and is appropriate for younger kids. 14401 Metcalf Ave, Overland Park, KS 66223

Oak Park Mall

Oak Park Mall is the best mall in the area. Located about 20 minutes away in Overland Park, this shopping center has everything you’d want or need. Housing over 180 individual shops, restaurants, and five anchor stores, Oak Park Mall is an awesome place to spend some time. Every team member will be happy with the mall’s selection. You can let the kids go off and do their thing while you enjoy some peace and quiet as you do a little shopping of your own. Stopping for a bite to eat won’t take up too much time thanks to Oak Park Mall’s large variety of food court eateries. If you’d rather have a sit down dining experience, the mall can deliver that too. 11149 W 95th St, Overland Park, KS 66214


The game of golf has been reinvented thanks to Topgolf. No longer do you have to play 18 holes of actual or miniature golf. Topgolf has changed the way golf is played. As you look out into the range, you’ll notice multiple light-up circles of varying sizes and distances. The object of Topgolf is to hit your ball as close to the flags as possible. There are nine games you can play at the Overland Park location. Team up, play head to head, aim for the far flags or the close ones; the combination of games will keep things fresh and interesting. When it’s not your turn to tee off, Topgolf keeps you entertained with over 200 HDTVs and free Wi-Fi. You can also order some food courtesy of their full-service restaurant. 10611 Nall Ave, Overland Park, KS 66207
