ABIGAIL BENNETHUM, Opinion Columnist

In light of entering the fourth week into the new semester, I feel we all tend to get busy and forget some of the awesome events that go on around campus and the Cedar Valley area. As important as studying and preparing for our future is, I also believe in having fun with friends and making some memories. Here are some fun things you can do in the Cedar Falls/Waterloo Area.

If you are into solving puzzles and critical thinking, take a trip to Escape Cedar Valley. You and your friends can be put to the test with challenges and other mind engaging activities. With an impressive 5/5 stars, people praise the company for their well-organized establishment and helpful staff.

Next, if you want to jump around with some friends, Get Air in Waterloo is the perfect place to go. Get Air offers different types of deals and promotions to accommodate anybody that might want to participate. You can find more information on their website.

Another great place to go if you want to run around and have some fun is Adrenaline X Laser Tag. This company goes above and beyond by accommodating to the customer by taking their company to them! It is great for all ages and will ensure fun for everyone!                                                                                                                                  

If you want something more adult, Cedar Valley and Waterloo area accommodate to every age group. If you are into painting and something more adult, no worries! Cedar Valley Art and Wine has got you covered. With a whopping 4.5/5 stars, people describe it as versatile, fun and artist-friendly.

Another popular attraction is Hurling Hatchet. They are the Cedar Valley’s urban axe throwing company. They accommodate private events, special occasions and much more. Every event has a dedicated axe throwing lanes and axe throwing coaches to ensure safety and will also teach you how to throw an axe while playing fun games.

If you don’t want to leave campus, no worries. UNI Events has many fun and exciting seminars, theater events and much more scheduled up until the end of the school year!
