We heard a fun fact while taking a tour of SCHEELS: the average person spends around 3 hours in the store. Though that may sound excessive, once you visit, it’s easy to understand why. There is so much to see, shop for, and do at SCHEELS. It’s more than shopping, it truly is an experience! Wichita families, you are going to love SCHEELS.
Thank you to Wichita Scheels for sponsoring this article.
And let’s just say, now we understand the hype! Scheels is what we would call a high-end sporting good store, but really it is so much more than that. It’s more of a destination for the family!
10 Things We LOVE About Wichita SCHEELS and Know You Will Too
Complete with a toddler area (for kids 3 and under), this play area is a fun way for the kids to burn off energy!
Kids and adults alike love this area! From Legos to Barbies to STEM activities, there are so many popular and unique toys for kids.
Bath Bomb Bar
My girls loved this cute little feature. You can mix and match different flavors of bath bombs and put them in a fun package for $6.99. What a great gift idea for birthdays, holidays, or just because.
Airplane Alley Roller Ball
They think of everything! Scheels has a little roller ball area (like a mini bowling alley) for kids to play.
Our team had way too much fun in the shooting gallery. It has the funniest, cutest features, and our favorite had to be the spraying skunk. We laughed so hard at that one.
Adorned by a large black and white Wichita Flag mural, this darling cafe has the most delicious caffeine drinks and smoothies. The strawberry banana smoothie was mouthwatering. And they even have a beef jerky bar!
Fuzziwigs Candy Factory & Ice Cream Parlor
Try a 2 pound sundae at the ice cream parlor or put together a bag of classic candy. We particularly loved the popular candy by the decades!
No quarters needed! These arcade games are fun for everyone. What a great way to burn off some steam after a day of shopping.
The Fish Tank
We’ve all seen the photos of the fish tank. But it’s even more impressive in person! With over 600 fish in the tank, it’s truly something to be admired.
The Wichita Scheels is the first store to have a baby boutique. This area is dedicated to new and expecting families with baby clothes, gear, and more!
