Growing up in Houston during the late 80’s and early 90’s meant you spent some wonderful times at Fame City. You also probably know that ever since this indoor family fun center became “Funplex”, it’s never been the same.
Fame City used to be a hip hang out for Houston’s youth. It had a bowling alley, a miniature golf course, the hottest arcade games, hourly dance performances on the center stage, a roller skating rink, a movie theatre, laser tag, coin operated games for the little ones, family dining, and Adventure Bay Water Park in the next lot over.
I remembered this old home movie that my Dad shot back in 1989. Since there is hardly any historical documentation on youtube about Fame City, I thought I’d share with those of you who are curious about how the place looked and operated in it’s prime.
It’s really disheartening to know that “Funplex”, as it stands today, is a dirty and decrepit building home to teenage drug dealers. I hope this video rekindles some great memories to those who were lucky enough to visit Fame City as a child.
