High 5 – Family Entertainment in Lake Travis

By on 9:32 am

High 5 is the premier family entertainment venue for Austinite’s young and old. A Lake Travis area favorite, visit High 5 today!


Led by Scott and Jenny Emley with the support of an enthusiastic group of over a dozen local area investors, High 5 is born of ideals and dreams.

Scott played football for the UT Longhorns in the late 90’s, graduating with a degree in Engineering, and a Master in Business Administration and Jenny, a Texas A&M graduate, is a former elementary educator for Hyde Park Baptist Schools in Austin. They are raising their 3 young children here in the Lake Travis area and knew we needed a place for families to play together that was also weather proof, and thus, the idea for High 5 was born.

As a VP of Marketing in the Technology sector, Scott relocated the family for work a few times and as many of us do, spent more time away from his family than he would have liked, so they decided to do something about it. The Emley’s created a place where they could enjoy family and work at the same time.

High 5 is a 47,000 square-foot family entertainment center filled with fun for everyone! With the latest arcade games and a huge prize redemption counter the whole family can enjoy playing together, and then have some friendly competition in the award-winning laser tag arena. Themed like an old Sugar Mill with an Austin sky-line and two-stories of heart pounding excitement, adults always come out of there with the biggest grins, because they didn’t know what the kids already knew- laser tag is so much fun!

There are more unexpected adventures as you realize there are two levels to the building, with bowling and bars on both stories! There are 16 lanes on the main level and another 12 UpTop. Right next to both sets of lanes are fully stocked bars that produce exquisite hand crafted cocktails from fruit infused jars right in front of you. While you are there you can order surprisingly good food from Alley’s Kitchen. Their executive chef’s choices for lunch or dinner can be enjoyed at the lanes, bar or dining room. (Hint-No greasy snack bar here, this is not your granddaddy’s bowling alley!)

After 8pm, UpTop, is off limits to the younger set, open to 21+ only, and is a great date night, with black light lanes, a huge bar, darts, pool tables, plenty of TV’s including large screens over the lanes, and a jukebox to set the mood, away from all of the hustle and bustle downstairs on the main level. Just in case your date night includes the family, there is an overlook from UpTop where you can see the entire Arcade and Laser Tag entrance, so you really can have it all at High 5.

In addition to the free Wi-Fi and plenty of seating throughout the building, High 5 also boasts 5 private meeting spaces that can be rented out for small business meetings all the way up to huge company events, holiday parties, weddings, rehearsals and the like. Their professional event staff can plan your event from start to finish and make you look like the hero for planning the best event ever!
