We remembered that a new Farrell's opened up and thought let's go scout it out and maybe we will have his birthday there this year..plus it gave us a reason to go check out Farrells and relive our childhood memories.
For those of you that don't know what Farrells is here is a briefing...Farrells is a Old Timey Ice Cream Parlour that back in the day was like Chuck E Cheese before there was a Chuck E Cheese.
It was full of wacky-ness and was quite the hot Birthday party place for kids but they all pretty much closed down in the 80's.
Anyway the new one was a great recreation of the old Farrell's
We drove quite a bit aways to get here and there was a INSANE large line just to get in. It was like waiting in line for a amusement park ride. We waited for an hour and a half to get in..the thing that really sucks is that you really have to wait in line..they don't have those buzzers like most restaurants do. When we left at 8pm from eating there I went to see if there was still a huge line and YEP..there sure was..here is a picture..(not so great these pictures.. had to use my camera phone)..The line goes all the way through the food court in the mall.
Once we got in it was time to indulge in some ICE CREAM! Gabe ordered a Mint Ice Cream Sodae said it used to be his favorite and it was still just as good as he remembered
We grabbed a couple of candy's for the ride home.
Anyway I think we are going to pass on having Parker's Birthday there. The line was just too long and the space is very small. We had a great time and will be back sometime I'm sure. I really hope they open some more up...maybe Huntington Beach or Long Beach..preferably
