Palmer's is place where you and your family can enjoy safe entertainment. At Palmer’s you’ll find go karts, 36-holes of mini golf, a driving range, a giant jumping pillow, batting cages and our newest attraction, archery tag. Palmer’s Family Fun has become the ideal location for Birthday Parties, Corporate Outings, Family Reunions, Church Gatherings, Company Picnics, School Field Trips and more.
Palmer’s, previously named Airline Amusement Park, is a locally owned family business. When you bring your family out you’ll more than likely run into the owners Curt & Holli Hansen or their children: Hogan, Ana and Palmer. The family fun center was named after Curt and Holli’s youngest son Palmer. He was just a baby when they decided to purchase Airline Amusement Park. The oldest of the kids, Hogan, loves the driving range. Ana, the middle one, loves the Jumping Pillow, and Palmer loves everything. Curt spends the off season with his family. You can often find him at the Cedar Falls Rec Center playing basketball with his kids or catching a Hawkeye game on the couch. He really enjoys coaching youth basketball in Cedar Falls. When Holli is not working at Palmer’s Family Fun, she takes care of Palmer and keeps the house in order.
Curt worked at Airline Amusement Park for two summers while earning his Teaching Degree at the University of Northern Iowa. He loved the driving range and would spend much of his free time hitting balls – on AND off the clock. While he was teaching math and physical education in Grinnell and Marengo Iowa, Curt always said he would own a driving range. About 3 years ago, the Hansen family found out the Airline Amusement Park was for sale. Curt and Holli knew this was the opportunity they had been waiting for. It’s been an exciting adventure since then.
Palmer’s Family Fun pledges to provide a safe and affordable family entertainment environment. The Hansen’s are always expanding, bringing new and innovated family fun to the Cedar Valley. Curt and Holli plan to continue growing the business with new attractions and continued improvements. Bring your family and friends and experience everything that Palmer’s Family Fun has to offer.
