  • This is a fun place for the spring, summer, and fall, and the arcade is a good break from winter monotony. The pizza is shockingly good, and they serve beer! 
  • this is a great place to take the kids and let them run... however it is pricey. EVERYTHING is family loves going their but.... we don't go often because it is $$$$ 
  • If you haven't been since it was Wright's barnyard then do yourself a service and head back. Zao island is a totally different experience now. Lots of new arcade games, laser tag, great pizza, and a g...  read more »
  • No need for cash, the entire place is on cards that you can load money onto. The remodel is AMAZING. There is a bar area for adults, there was also live music in the evening that we enjoyed with the kids. The go carts, bumper cars and arcade were so much fun - I can't say enough about how much we enjoyed our visit. They also have mini golf and a pizza restaurant that is delicious. We spent about $80 between food, go carts, inflatables and the arcade - it was a busy Saturday, but with the new space, there was enough room for everyone to have a nice time.
  • I use the batting cages. They cater to adults and children. A great place to throw a kids birthday party. Good pizza, goodbeer, live music. Don't forget to feed the alligators. πŸ˜€πŸŽ‰βšΎπŸ»πŸŽ΅πŸŽΆ
  • We lost a card on the bumper cars. We went to see if we could get it replaced. She said I needed a receipt. I told the clerk they didn't give me one. She said that's the only way she could help us. I had bought 4 kids @ $30 each on cards. It was a reward they earned. I teach 3rd graders. I then had to buy another card for the child. They really wanted to feed the alligators - the main reason they all wanted to go there. They were out of the alligator food. Big disappointment. 3 batting cages were out of order. Slowed us up. many games weren't working - we wasted money from the card on the games because everything is done by the card and you're just out of luck if you swipe it and the game doesn't work. We ordered a cheese pizza. Waited for that for more than 30 minutes. Waited another 10 minutes at the food counter just to get someone around to ask for a to go pizza box and then the kid took forever. Went to get on the slide. Kid was on his head phones - we didn't know what to do until he finally said we had to go to a different place for a $7 wristband for the slide. Super over priced. No one to help and they really don't care if you waste half the money on the cards and don't get to do anything. My 3rd graders worked hard for this trip and I spend over @ $250 and probably only received $100 of what I consider worthwile adventure. Never going back.
  • Batting cages are really nice and really inexpensive. Easygoing open air arcade makes the place feel huge and open, and they serve alcohol too? Awesome! It's like a better Dave and Busters.
  • A great place to take your family and have fun, they just got new games not that long ago and new go karts. The mini golf is great and Lazer tag is awesome. Overall I could not ask more from this place, it is fun, inexpensive, and has a happy environment.
