Family fun in Vaughan, this spring, can’t get any easier. SpringHill Suites by Marriott Toronto Vaughan has teamed up with Dave & Buster’s Vaughan to bring you the Family Fun Package, which includes two $20 Dave and Buster’s Power Cards for tons of fun in the midway arcade. Stretch those $40 in Power Cards further with a mid-week staycation, doubling your fun thanks to their half price games special at the midway every Wednesday. Did I mention that Dave & Buster’s is also a Sports Bar and Restaurant, complete with kid’s menus? So, plan your visit around lunch or dinner for happy bellies and happy faces! The Family Fun package also includes a hot and cold buffet breakfast so that’s another meal you won’t have to think about.
