Another fantastic adventure

It was just as good as last year

The three day two night trip to Fountain Hills AZ. was fun for all. The Inn @ Eagle Mountain. has hosted us for the last 6 years and “it don’t get no better”. After a day of tubing what could be better than your own Jacuzzi tub? Well, every room comes with Jacuzzi and fireplace. Not only that but in true Fred’s Playland style, these luxury accommodations were not $300, or $200, but only $69 per night.


In 2014 we rocked the house!

Special offer because a lot of you have asked


Firearm Safety Class for Beginners.

We had an absolute blast at our last firearms safety class. Class was very informative and the questions were amazing. We got to touch and handle several different types of guns including revolvers, semi automatics, rifles, and even machine guns and an Uzi. Everyone did great on the firing range. some were a little timid but I can understand that. Some of the guns were very powerful. Hopefully the information gained will help you be more safe in the future and maybe some of you will even purchase your own guns. When you do, think about the fun you had in Fred’s Playland Firearms Safety Class 101.

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.
