- Our Story -


Cactus Pete’s Family Fun Center was created by two guys from Jefferson County that were sick of driving their kids to South County, Fenton and St. Charles to play overpriced video/prize redemption games and laser tag. They found too many places that lured you in with claims of “unlimited” play but the prize redemption games or laser tag were not included. Each place had so many confusing price options and “specials” that their heads would spin! They were shocked at the food and drink prices – it was like they were at the movie theatre or the airport!

Tony & Doug decided to improve on what a family FUN center should be. Namely, FUN, AFFORDABLE and MEMORABLE.
FIRST & FOREMOST – Bring your own food (BYOF) or have it delivered (that right there is going to save you a ton of money). SECOND – You shouldn’t have to spend 10 minutes at the counter trying to figure out what the best deal is. Cactus Pete’s keeps it simple. Buy credits or buy time. NO COMPLICATED PRICE LIST to confuse you. AND THIRD – a dedicated, hard working, friendly, Cactus Pete’s “FUN” expert will be happy to assist you.

Cactus Pete.

Randall C. Peterson aka “Cactus Pete” was a prospector panning for gold along the banks of the Mighty Meramec River when a bright light hovered over his head and then moved in the direction of Imperial, Missouri.

Go On....

He followed the UFO to a deserted mine shaft which is part of the building that now houses Cactus Pete’s Family Fun Center. The story goes that Cactus Pete saw alien like beings going into the mine shaft and that he followed them into the mine.

Rumor Has It

Cactus Pete befriended the aliens and now he and the aliens routinely visit one another. The green ooze that covers the laser tag room is really a special substance that helps the aliens breathe the earth’s atmosphere. They use the cover of the laser tag room so as not to be detected. It is not unusual to encounter an alien while playing laser tag or walking through the Mine Shaft Maze. Don’t be alarmed – the Aliens are friendly!
