Ask any kid in the Treasure Valley, Wahooz Family Fun Zone plus Roaring Springs Waterpark equals fun! And now Wahooz is mixing business with pleasure with their new 12,500 square foot Galaxy Event Center, open November 1. The Galaxy will be Meridian’s newest, largest, and most upscale event venue.
In 2015, Meridian Mayor, Tammy de Weerd, asked Meridian businesses to help provide an event center for the growing town. Wahooz worked diligently to make the Mayor’s dream a reality by creating the Galaxy, an exceptional space with seating for up to 600 guests. And in February, to commemorate the opening, Mayor de Weerdwill deliver her annual State of the City Address at the Galaxy.
With the grand opening in November, visitors will stand in awe at the spacious, sophisticated atmosphere for conferences, galas, receptions, holiday parties, trade shows, and more. The center can divide into nine separate rooms, each complete with state-of-the-art audiovisual connections. When you walk into the entrance of the new center, you will feel instantly like you are stepping into a grand Broadway theater. Comfortable lounge chairs, sofas, and tables line the Reception Corridor, with a beautiful new water feature out the window on the remodeled mini-golf course.
The main conference room features "beautiful décor in silvers and blues with up-lit stars on the ceilings and walls of the North Star Rooms, South Star Rooms, and Aurora Rooms.” You will be break-taken as you see the giant star covering the width of the expansive ceiling. Hidden within the star are the audiovisual and lighting features.
Along the perimeter, more stars surround you as though you are truly walking into another galaxy. Unlike other conference centers, the natural light from the east-facing windows add an energetic feel.
An executive chef will provide delicious meals out of a new gourmet-catering kitchen, plus cocktail service and a remote bar. The Galaxy is already accepting reservations at (208) 884-8842 ext 3010 or email email@example.com. Sales and Marketing Director, Tiffany Quilici, says their response from the community has been amazing as they have groups already reserved for two years out! So book fast!
No matter the weather, parents and children alike can enjoy the vast 20,000 square foot Indoor Adventure Park at Wahooz, complete with seven exciting indoor attractions, like The Twister amusement ride, Sky Trail Ropes Course, and the XD Dark Ride full-motion theater. Pinz Bowling, the Laser Maze Challenge, and an 80-game Arcade prove to be equally entertaining.
According to Quilici, Wahooz keeps every member of the family in mind, "We believe that the parents’ comfort is just as important as the kids' fun." Parents will find soft, comfortable seating, as well as refreshments from the Z Bar and Grill.
Wahooz will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2019 and has expansion plans for years to come. Quilici says, "We always want families to keep experiencing something new and fresh."
Parents and children, when you are lost for what to do this winter, visit Wahooz Family Fun Zone for thrilling entertainment, and now, the stunning ambiance of a new meeting place.
