We went yesterday afternoon, there were kids running all over the place. Several children were crying. A lady next to me had been there 5 minutes and her children collided, her daughter knocked out a tooth so they were leaving. This place is fun for kids to climb, run and play arcade games. Be sure to supervise your kids as... More

I took my son here almost a year ago for a playgroup. This place looks like a lot of fun for older children but do NOT take your younger children here!! My son fell from a play structure and broke his collar bone. It took two days for the "manager" to contact me back. After speaking to him over the... More

Is a nice place for Children. Is more aproppriate for Children 5yrs to 12 I will said. My adviced to the parents is to get up in the tubes,slides whatever with you children because if other aduls are climing in there they sure have the opportunity to touch you child inaproppriately if they want. So protect you children at all... More

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).

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.
