Sun. Aug. 24th, 10:00am to 2:00pm

If you have a gun in the house, this course is for you. If you’re thinking about purchasing a firearm, you need to sign up. If you’ve never touched a gun before and want to see what it’s like, come join me. This course will include 2 hours of classroom time followed by range time. I’ll have everything you need. You will learn how to safely & properly handle & store firearms. It will also make you more comfortable and confident around guns. If you are interested in this class you should enroll as soon as possible. It fills up fast. You will learn the operation and handling of many types of handguns ranging from revolvers to semi automatics including .22cal, 9mm, .38/357 magnum and 44 magnum.

You’ll get to handle and fire guns that are no longer legal to posses. But because you’re a Fred’s Playland member you can get first hand experience what they are all about. Don’t ask me how I’m able to do this:) It’s my little secret. If you ever wanted to feel like Arnold or Mel Gibson this is for you. But what’s more, you will leave with the confidence and training that you need to keep you and yours safe.

I can only take a limited number of participants so sign up ASAP. The price for this course is $75 per person. This price will include class time, use of firearms, ammo, targets, range time, eye and ear protection and handouts. It’s going to be fun, educational, and enlightening… but mostly fun!

It is restricted to the public but we have a personal invitation. The Magic Castle is the private clubhouse for the Academy of Magical Arts, Inc, a very special organization devoted to the advancement of the ancient art of magic.

 You will be picked up at your own home in private coach and driven to Los Angeles. We will visit a couple of popular spots before arriving at the Magic Castle. Once at the Castle we will be treated to some up close and personal magic before being seated for dinner. After enjoying an incredible dinner we retreat to the main show room for the Grand Magic Show. The castle is very well known for star sightings, especially on the weekends. Cameras are not allow which creates a comfortable environment for celebrities

& stars. The last time I visited I had the pleasure of meeting Lucy Liu and Kevin Costner. The cost of this trip is going to be around $100 including Deluxe transportation, admission, parking, dinner, and show. This trip will be Fred’s Playland at it’s best… and yes, I do have some surprises planned. This amazing adventure is not for everyone and we are strickly limited to 16 people.

By Special Invitation only for
Fred’s Playland


Dr Phil Welcomes Dr. TD Jakes

The Date was Monday April 14th

Dr Phil with guest Rev. TD Jakes.
This was just a little different spin on the Dr Phil Show. In the past we’ve made stops at Gruman’s Chinese Theater, The Farmer’s Market, Universal Studios, and Even the Hollywood Bowl. But none equaled today’s trip. Afrer being showered with gifts from the Dr Phil Show, we took a short drive to Lincoln Heights and were treated to lunch, a tour of a winery, and wine tasting of some of California’s best wine. All thanks to the beautiful San Antonio Winery of Los Angeles.

It was a party at sea

45 people took this 4 day journey from Los Angeles to Catalina Island & Ensenada Mexico. Prices ranged from $131 to $301. Those are fantastic prices in anyone’s book. We had our own tour guide on Catalina as well as a golf tournament with great prizes. In Ensenada we had our own bus to La bufadora, The Corona Beer Brewery, Downtown, and a short wine tasting stop. My favorite part was the amount of kids and first time cruisers onboard. I love it when my people try new things. That’s what Fred’s Playland is all about. Making it possible. Thanks to Carnival Cruises for making this possible and special thanks to Chuck Lidell for your help. And thanks to all of you who made this trip wonderful for me.

 November 23rd was the day

Fred’s Playland was invited to take a ride on one of the fastest commercial boats on the ocean. We were one of the first groups to experience the power of the Patriot. I was invited to go out on media day and it was awesome. Just so you know, this is not a casual tour. It’s an all out thrill ride. We sped across the bay at around 50 mph performing turns and spins the way only a jet boat can. Here is one of my videos from media day.

Our special price for this event was only $22.00

I’ll be riding with you to make sure you have lots of photos & video of this experience. This is San Diego’s most unique thrill ride.
