  • I love bringing the kids here! It keeps everyone busy for a couple hours. Lots of games to play and the older kids can play laser tag. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We will definitely keep going!
  • I have up and down reviews. First we had to wait to get our wrist bands for all you can play Thursday but there were a lot of games they could play included in the unlimited play (all the games that don't dispense tickets) Not that many machines were broken but the ones that did dispense tickets didn't give that many. My daughter got the same amount for a 20,000 point game of ski ball as she did for a 4000 point game. Only one game ate our token. The ticket counting machine kept jamming. The food gets negative reviews from me. First we wanted the pizza deal they have that includes 40 game tokens but the pizza oven was broken so not only was there no pizza but no tokens either! We were left ordering a burger and fries fro $8.99. It was a frozen burger, the cheese wasn't even melted and a tiny "wonder" bun! The fries were even worse they tasted like ones that had been in the freezer way too long then over cooked! The only reason they got a 3rd star is because my kids enjoyed it.
  • We went to celebrate my son's birthday. We stood at the counter for no less than 10 minutes before we were acknowledged, no other customers around, we got our tokens finally and went to play. There were so many broken machines I'm not sure how all of our kids stayed occupied. When we finally ran out of coins we decided to go get some food. Expectations were low but they surpassed that. My husband took the boys to the bathroom while we waited and he said none of the toilets were clean, full of feces. The ladies room has a change table but no liners or antibacterial wipes. The food was so terrible I wouldn't give it to my worst enemy's dog. Freezer burned burgers, and hotdogs, fries were either reheated or under a heat lamp for at least a week, chicken fingers were dry but undercooked. Not even free refills for the fountain pop. It cost us almost as much as a sit down restaurant with fresh food. The prizes are dollar store quality and I noticed there were at least 2 items related to fecal matter. Who wants to spend their hard earned money on poop? The manager had nothing to say in their defense and no apologies either. We will not be returning to this pig sty dump.
  • Went in with my girlfriend and right away there was an issue with the main cashier not giving us the correct stuff (unlimited play bracelets). After a few minutes we got it figured out thankfully. We did mini golf, which was fine (apart from some kids running literally around us). We then went to play some of the arcade games, and this is where the main issue resides. A good 50% of the games were either out of commission or didn't work properly. We then went to play laser tag (just the two of us) and discovered that my gun didn't work at all, but hers did. So we had 10 minutes or so of me trying to not get shot. All in all, it was a pretty lackluster experience for the $50 price tag. Wouldn't have been too disappointed at $20, but as it stands I doubt I'll be coming back
  • The funnest place for kids.great pizza deal too! My 8 year old still begs us to go there.
