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

We have been to Makutu's Island many times in the past years. We recently heard they closed for refurbishment and reopened. We were excited to take our grandchildren there. Yes they have improved some but I was expecting a total refurbishment according to the news reports that said how much they spent. Our kids had fun and it was equal... More

We received an email that Makutu's had reopened after their remodel so we thought we'd check it out. The staff at the front counter were very nice. Kids are now $10 each which is a big increase. Adults, 1 per paid kid are now free which is nice. Once inside the place looks pretty much the same. I brought my... More

I had not been here in years, but my kids had a great time. We arrived about 2pm and it was busy, but as the day wore on it got quiter. The kids had a great time when everyone started leaving around 4pm. The food was reasonably priced, and thank goodness they no longer charge for adults, I found that... More

My kids absolutely love this place. One bad thing is that it is always so busy you tend to lose your kid because there are so many people and kids are constantly running into each other and crawling over each other. It's a great place for the kids to burn energy though and get out of the heat. We definitely... More
