Village West (Kansas City, Kansas) Entertainment

(This entry continues a series on the Village West area in Kansas City, Kansas)

What do you want to do this weekend? If you’re at Village West, the options are numerous. Pick the right weekend and you can head to Kansas Speedway, home to NASCAR Truck, Busch and Cup races as well as Indy Cars and more. The track also offers several driving schools where you can take your own high-speed laps around the 1.5-mile oval.

From June-September, the Kansas City T-Bones, an independent professional baseball team, play here. Tickets are just $10 and parking is free at the 4,300-seat stadium.

The open-air mall includes a 14-screen theater, T-Rex restaurant where kids can dig for dinosaur bones, and much more.

Covering both the entertainment and lodging category is the Great Wolf Lodge, one of about a dozen around the country. In addition to upscale accommodations in a northwoods-themed retreat, the lodge features a 49,000-square foot indoor entertainment area, including a 2000,000 gallon waterpark.
