We visited for the 1st time a few days ago. We were excited after visiting their website. It is a good climbing center for the little ones. Not as good for older kids or adults. Not many games in the arcade, also if you need to climb up anything to rescue your child it could be treacherous. I did almost... More

In generally, I'm not a fan of any place that requires that I sign a liability waiver acknowledging that "death" is a possibility in the establishment, but my kids and I were already there so it was hard to say, "no" at that point. You can preview the waiver (and complete it online for a smoother check-in) on their website.... More

The new owners (Kiran and Kiran) are at best GREEDY! They had an event advertised for New Years eve and were selling tickets for $40 (adults) and $25 (kids), when I talked to one of them. He gave me all the details of the event along with the pricing. As soon as I went to book, I saw the only... More

I apologize you are frustrated over the pricing regarding the event we hosted at Makutu’s Island on New Year’s Eve. Like many venues and entertainment options, we offer different tiers of pricing based on each event. We also offer discounts for our VIPs (through social media and via our newsletter). I am sorry you feel the need to call us... More

This place is pretty fun for young kids. There are a lot of things to climb on and explore with some pretty fast slides! There is a small zip line and a small arcade. There is a cafe but it's somewhat expensive. The best part is that parents are free!

Like all places of its ilk, this place smells like stale Odor Eaters. But in terms of the things the kids enjoy (rides, places to have a party) it is top notch. It's a little expensive (but not crazy) compared to its peers Peter Piper, Chuck E. Cheese and Amazing Jakes.

The kids love going simply to ride the zip line over...and over...and over. Food court leaves a lot to be desired, but at least the kids are always exhausted when I bring them home!

Being in the Phoenix area for a few weeks, we happened upon Makutu's. For our 5 year old, and even our 10 year old) this was one of their funnest days of the trip. We were there for over 3 hours and the kids played almost the whole time. The place seemed quite well taken care of, although the staff... More

Have to be frank, this place smells like feet. But the kids love it. Have taken my son a few times to play and attend a birthday party. It seemed pretty clean. They just need to do something about that smell.

Let me tell you about my experience with Makutus Island. Last Saturday, I wanted to have Nyah's 4th birthday party there...so I did. The party was scheduled for play from 3:15pm to 4:45 pm. Then from 4:45 to 5:45 we were to celebrate Nyah's birthday with pizza, cake, and gifts. There were 20 children on our guest list and of... More
