  • Probably a fun place for six years old and older. Tree houses are difficult at access for younger children. Would be nice if there was a stairway and not just ladders etc. Very small toddler area with...  more »
  • We decided to visit Makutu's today. I took my 11 year old and 5 year old. I was very disappointed. In the past they had workers all around the play area. But today they did not! I only saw one guy wal...  more »
  • Makutu's Island is a great place for kids to run about, explore the big tree with slides, small zip line, mesh tunnels and lots of places to climb and have fun. My grandkids spent 3 hours and would ha...  more »

  • The play area was neat. The cleanliness was pretty bad. Place is not kept up. Looks to be run by exclusively teenagers. Restrooms were disgusting. Food was not great. But my daughter had fun!
  • Fun for the whole family. Prices are reasonable, considering it's all day play. Food was fantastic, and all of the staff was super friendly. The place was very clean, and we had a blast in the arcade... so many cool new prizes to choose from. Can't wait to come back again.
  • My children had a blast here. The staff were polite, prices are fair, and my kids loved the bungee jumping and the slides. This place is great, I will definitely be going back very soon.
  • I’m very disappointed. I know this place is mainly for older kids, but my one year old is very adventurous and needed to get out of the house! We took him to Makutus Island Saturday for the toddler area(for children 3 years and under) we get into the toddler area and there are kids (WAY OLDER THAN 3) running around, throwing the foam building blocks, knocking down the little ones because they are not paying attention. There needs to be an employee at all times monitoring this area for the smaller children. It’s also unfortunate being a parent, trying to enjoy this play time with their children and the older kids are even throwing the blocks at you!! Multiple times my son was ran into. The cafe is also a joke! Very messy, and the food is gross. We ordered pretzel bites and cheese as a snack, which was $3. They literally tasted like rubber and the cheese was very solid and rubbery. Definitely not worth $3. Both soda machines were out of ice, which is unfortunate when you’ve been running around and want a cool drink, and fast!! It being January, indoors should have no problem being cool, but it felt like a swamp. Very muggy from the sweat. I really hope we can consider bringing our son here when he’s older and adjustments have been made. And might I add, your welcoming employees should be more “ welcoming “ they didn’t smile much, and didn’t seem to know what was going on. Your manager was also upfront and didn’t once make us guests feel welcomed. Isn’t that the whole point of coming? To have fun and feel like we should be there. Maybe a training day for all of your employees on learning to be more kind and courteous. Nobody looked like they wanted to be there.
  • Awesome! New management cleaned up the place. They also raised prices. Cafe is very pricey and now does booze - poor choice for a "family friendly" place. $35 for 3 kids & 1 adult, unlimited play time in main area. The food is not very good. Eat before you come. Lots of teen girls working there. Sometimes there are older (age 12+) kids running around getting a little rough. There's also a bungee jumping trampoline for extra $$. Arcade is pretty sad. No inflatables.
