Do you have children in your New Year’s Eve crowd? Bring the whole family to Glow Into the New Year at the UltraStar Multi-tainment Center at Ak-Chin Circle. The fun starts with an outdoor showing of Ghostbusters II on the Jumbotron in the amphitheater. Bring blankets or low-back lawn chairs to enjoy the show. An outdoor concession stand opens at 6:30 p.m. to satisfy your cravings. Afterward, head inside with the kids to Ten Pins Down for the 10 p.m. New Year’s Eve Balloon drop, along with glowing drink specials. Don’t miss your chance to enter a raffle to win a year’s worth of free bowling!
After the kids (hopefully!) go to bed, it’s time for the adults to celebrate New Year’s Eve at the UltraStar Multi-tainment Center. Guests aged 21 and older can head to the Glow Party starting at 10 p.m. upstairs in the Luxe Lounge! Dance to tunes spun by a DJ, enjoy great drink specials and free party favors, and stick around for the free champagne toast at midnight.
After celebrating at the Luxe Lounge, take advantage of the Luxe Bus as your designated driver. The bus will be available starting at 6 p.m. to transport guests aged 21 and older to and from the Luxe Lounge. Call 520-840-3159 for more information or to reserve a ride.
