Spring might be the rainiest of seasons but weather is no problem when you plan some indoor fun in Allen. Rally up the crew and head over to PINSTACK for a little friendly competition. Strike out in a game of bowling, climb all the way to the top of their rock-climbing wall, or tiptoe your way across beams and ropes on PINSTACK’S high ropes course. After all that and more, refuel on loads of cheese and your choice of toppings with their giant 36-inch pizza. Talk about YUM!
