Save Around San Diego.
It’s  been a few years since we’ve offered the Entertainment Book but as we know all good things come to an end.  But this may help a little. It’s fairly new to San Diego and it’s loaded with money saving deals. Even though there is no fine dining section, there are some very attractive restaurants, deals and offers listed. I’ve been sampling it for the past few weeks and I love it. It’s not as extensive as the previous book and as mentioned, there is no fine dining section but I think it’s well worth the money. Many merchants have been getting tight with the 2 for 1′s but this book has plenty. The cost of the book is $20 but through a special offer from Fred’s Playland you can get your copy for only $15 including shipping & PayPal fees. And they make great gifts.

-ONLY $15.00-

But this is for a limited time only. Order yours now and start saving money. This book has over $5000 in savings plus, your own app with mobile offers and lots of printable coupons. You can view a sample book at this website:

Nov. 14th, 15th, & 16th, 2014

A lot of planning hours went into this one but it was a huge success. It may turn out to be an annual event. The Days Inn Williams AZ were our wonderful hosts and took care of our every need. The partnered up with Kicks on Route 66 next door who took care of our dining needs. Along with the indoor pool and use of the breakfast room, we were able to have both a wine pool party and a cocktail party.

After breakfast on Saturday morning some of us will take the 1 hour bus ride to the rim of the Grand Canyon while others opted to ride the historic Grand Canyon Railroad. We all rendezvoused at the canyon and had a great time touring and enjoying it’s beauty.

The views were spectacular and many new friends were made. For many of the group it was their first time visiting the Grand Canyon. They were able to scratch that off their bucket list. This was one of most fun adventures to date.

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.
