Memphis is packed with eye-roll free activities for your teenager. Check out our tips for entertaining your teen while enjoying the sights, sounds and tastes of the Bluff City.

Good Times Indoors
Your teen will definitely stop texting long enough to jump into the fun at Sky Zone Trampoline Park. This all-trampoline, walled, indoor activity center offers open jump sessions, 3-D dodge ball and skyrobics.

Or perhaps your teen would rather chill out. They can keep cool at the Mid-South Ice House, the area’s only regulation-sized, indoor ice skating rink. They have public skate hours and drop in hockey games for kids and adults, so you can get in on the action, too.

If hockey isn’t your thing, check out our professional basketball team, the Memphis Grizzlies. There’s nothing more exciting than watching a game-winning 3-pointer at the final buzzer while being surrounded by rabid fans at the FedEx Forum.

Your bottomless pit will probably be hungry after all that action. There’s no better way to fill them up than the endless pizza buffet at the America's Incredible Pizza Company. After chowing down, they can let off a little steam with a round of laser tag, a go kart race or 18 holes of glow-in-the-dark mini golf.

Take the Fun Outside
If your teen likes to grind and shred, they’ll be able to catch some air at the Midtown Skate Park. This skateboarder’s paradise is free and open to the public daily. With two bowls, ramps, rails, stairs and a snake run, there is something for every level of skater. Maybe you could even show them a trick or two.

Make time to grab a seat at AutoZone Park and watch the Memphis Redbirds play. The stadium for the Triple-A farm team for the St. Louis Cardinals even boasts a 60 x 60 HD video board. Grab some world-famous barbecue nachos while your teen enjoys activities like carnival games, speed pitch and live entertainment between innings. Check out the Memphis Redbird’s website for information about giveaways, specials and discount tickets.

Your teen can get their aggressions out with some extreme, combat-style fun at Memphis Paintball Park. You can fight against them and show them who’s boss or band together and destroy enemy attackers. Your whole family can have a messy good time at this 15-acre outdoor facility.
