I wouldn't go back there............................ The place is full of kids who have parents that could care less about what they do or what they destroy. My daughters took the granddaughters there and were horrified. It was at one time a good place to take a family but the current clientele brings the place down to a dump.

It's a bigger kid version of "Chuckie Cheese" -- tons of arcade games; laser tag; video gaming lounge; indoor rides; outdoor rides/go karts; mini-golf; etc. They've got the whole "machinery" for the party gig. Kids go crazy collecting tickets to turn in to cheap prizes...but have a blast to see who can collect the most! Parents: bring your earplugs and... More

We took 2 of our grandkids here, 3 &4 but there were some kids a little older who seemed to be having a good time. We went Sun morning at 10am. Not crowded at all. They had so many things for little kids to do we were there for over 2 hours. The young people who work there could not... More

I wish I would have read the reviews on this place, but we went there as a last minute substitution on a rainy day. Even our 6-year-old grandson said that they need to clean the place. Half the games didn't work or were falling apart. The staff was apathetic. We didn't stay long enough for our grandson to earn many... More

Odyssey Fun World seems like it would have everything a kid could want. However, they clearly have not kept it up. The mini-golf in particular was just depressing. You wouldn't think that you could lose as many balls as we did on a mini-golf course, but when there are rocks and half the holes are jerry-rigged you can easily lose... More

There are some good and bad points first the rides are good and not long waits and the island racing is cool. The driving range is good with options as well. If there is a concert next door don't waste your time.

Kids liked it a bit, but offer other places that offer similar amusement. Crowded and not very well staffed but it is close by and convenient to get to. Their outdoor offering is also worth a look.

Definately not the cleanest place around, there are always kids who are unsupervised running rampid. I swear every time we come here there are always games that are out of order, word of advice keep an employee in view because you will have problems when it comes to getting the tickets out of the machines. The only reason we keep... More

This place is dirty, unkempt, and full of kids who parents obviously dumped their kids off for some free baby sitting. Several of the video games are out of order. The Laser Tag is an incredible disappointment. The only redeeming thing here are to go karts only you can't really make those unfun. I would suggesting avoiding this place.

Pro: Interesting games for the children but keep the little ones on the first floor. The second floor has way too many gun/killing games. Not for my children!! There are more opportunities to "win" tickets on the main floor. Just make sure you keep an employee within your line of site, because so many of the machines steal your money.... More
