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
Up Top 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!
