We booked a birthday party for my 11 year old son with 9 friends. The kids had a great time! The problem we had was the game systems were mostly not working. They were quick to refund the amount we paid for the games. We still had the time and many of the kids didn't have anything to do so... More

The staff and manger, Jen, need training and customer service skills. After speaking to a female employee on phone this morning, I asked if they would honor the living social deal of 20 dollars per person for 6 people at the Oviedo location. I explained I wanted the price honored but did not have a voucher on the phone before... More

Hard K, Manager at Hard Knocks, responded to this review

Just to be clear: You found a living social online ad that had expired 6 months ago. You never actually bought that living social. You asked for greater value than that living social offers. You were dishonest about leaving the living social voucher at home. You were dishonest about having the living social and then conceded you just wanted it... More

For the amount of time you get - this place is so expensive. It was a great thing for a kids party that we were invited to but when we went back it was just to much to pay for the amount of time we got.

I am from Toronto Canada area and each year we come down to Florida this is a must. I have kids from 13 - 19 all ages love it. The guns are accurate they feel like real guns and you get a few to chose from which is cool. A leader does awesome neat game missions always super fun. there... More

Brought my son here for his 13th birthday. Was visiting from Virginia so this was our first time experiencing this. We had 11 people that participated and 13 total people there. Everyone that participated had a blast. All the girls that worked there made you feel welcome and were so helpful. The only down side is I only purchased an... More

I took my 10 year old here for an afternoon of fun and we had a blast. It was pricey to get in and buy time to play but the purchased time goes slowly so you really get a lot out of it. We bought 2 hours and we were there for about 3 hours and only used about 30... More

We came with a couple of friends and had a fun time. There are like three or four different arenas to play in and multiple types of games which keeps it different and not boring. It's definitely a workout!

I booked a birthday party for my eleven year old twins. They, along with their friends, had an amazing time. The staff was excellent and made sure everyone had a really good time. We booked a party package with game time. I would not recommend the game time. It is just playing video games and after about 30 minutes all... More

Hard Knocks is some of the most fun I've had in a while. Great indoor combat simulation. This is good for families, friends, and work groups. Its grear bonding time and even pretty good exercise even though you're not allowed to run at full speed, you'll be tired. All 3 arenas have pros and cons but I like office overall.... More

Had my son's 16th birthday party here recently and while the experience was great fun for the kids I believe the add on options of pizza and the "war room" (party room) were a bit ridiculous in price. At an average of $30 per person (min 8) for a birthday package it's already expensive. Hard Knocks wanted an addition $5... More
