I second FunSpot, and would suggest it as an "instead of" to Chucky Cheese. They have an enormous arcade (lots of games from the 80's and 90's that you didn't know still existed), a pizza shop, great bowling where you can do bumpers for the kids but no bumpers for the adults, lots of opportunities for the kids to earn tickets that they can exchange for prizes that are much better than what Chucky Cheese has, mini-golf, etc. It's a great alternative to Chucky Cheese. Check on-line or at local convenience stores for coupons that will give you an extra 50 tokens for your $20 purchase (instead of 100 tokens you get 150, which makes it about 13 cents/game). Just don't go if you're there during Motorcycle Week (June 12-20).

Funspot...The Spot for Fun!


Funspot Coupon

ETA: If you're going to buy more than one batch of tokens, bring multiple coupons -- you can use one with every $20 you spend.

There's a water slide at the entrance to the Weirs as well, which might be fun depending on how adventurous they are. And yes, Funspot is great for the older kids, but being 4 and 6, I bet they'd be just as happy going to the old Half-Moon arcade. Stop in the candy store just a few doors away, 'rock candy' is another one of those Weir's Beach traditions (the candy actually looks like little pebbles that you might find on the ground). There used to be an arcade down on the boardwalk as well, not sure if it's still there or not.

For a rainy day in the Manchester area, you might try The Space Center in Hooksett. It's a huge arcade that has all sorts of games & ski ball, plus laser tag, a couple of kiddie rides, indoor Himalaya & bumper cars.
