Star City (Birmingham)
Advantages: Something for everybody
Disadvantages: Could end up being expensive
Living in Birmingham myself, I can vouch for the fact that there isn't a great deal to do here once you have been to the Bullring a few times! I have particularly found this an issue in the school holidays whilst looking after my younger sister but ever since Star City has come along, this isn't as much of an issue anymore-there is so much to do there!!
For those with children/those that are big kids at heart, there are and abundance of activities to keep you entertained such as indoor mini golf, Laser Quest, bowling, indoor rock climbing, Powerleague football and an amusement arcade (including indoor dodgems)! There is also a fair and various other stalls set up on a section of the car park during certain periods of the year, which adds more excitement and variety to the place.
Also in the complex is a large cinema, Gentings casino and a Virgin Active gym, all of which I use regularly and would highly recommend. The main reason for most of my visits to Star City is for food though. There are several places to eat there ranging from fast food eateries (McDonalds,KFC,Burger King and Pizza Hut) to classic restaurants such as La Tasca, Harvester and Nandos so there is definitely something for everybody!
Each time I go to Star City there seems to be something new there which I love and I really do think there is nowhere else in Birmingham that offers anywhere near the same variety of activities. In my experience, they are all reasonably priced individually but if you wanted to make a day of it and do a couple of different things there it could get expensive but would say it would probably be worth it!
Finally, it is situated in a decent location as it isn't too far from Birmingham city centre, although I am pretty sure the buses aren't the most regular here so may be tricky to reach if you don't have your own transport.
If you can get there though, I would definitely recommend it as either a family day out or evening out with friends!
Summary: Great place to visit in Birmingham, something for everyone!
