April 4, 2019 – Xtreme Action Park, the largest all-ages indoor entertainment complex in Florida, proudly accepted The American Amusement Machine Association (AAMA) 2018 Family Entertainment Center (FEC) Location of the Year Award during the AAMA President’s Ceremony held at Amusement Expo International in Las Vegas, Nevada on March 27.
“It was an “Xtreme” honor to receive this award making us the #1 FEC in the country,” said David Goldfarb, Owner of PrimeTime Amusements and Co-Owner at Xtreme Action Park. “This achievement validates the investment in our 200+ staff and the technological advancement of our attractions.”
The FEC Location of the Year Award considers several criteria including games and attractions, prize center, food service, marketing, social media, charitable activity, safety and security, staff engagement, and design of interior and exterior spaces. Five finalists received an extensive review from a secret shopper visit and the winner was selected by AAMA’s FEC of the Year Review Committee, comprised of recognized industry leaders.
“What honestly put Xtreme Action Park over the top was the charity work they do to support the community that makes such a difference in the lives of so many people,” said AAMA EVP, Peter Gustafson. “It demonstrated for the review committee how at the end of the day, it’s not all about money – there’s more “we” can do to bring joy to a community than just run an exceptional family entertainment center.”
Xtreme Action Park is known for its many charitable endeavors like an event recently hosted to benefit more than 250 foster children in Broward. Also, last year, Xtreme opened the entire park exclusively for the students and faculty of Marjorie Stoneman Douglas High School (MSD) for “Eagle Day at the Park” to provide a safe environment where the students could play and create positive memories.
“Over the past 50 years, from New York to Florida, I’ve worked to share fun and entertainment with children and families,” said Michael Dezer, Co-Owner at Xtreme Action Park and Owner of Dezer Properties. “I am very proud that we at Xtreme have won this honor and look forward to making more memories that last a lifetime.”
