Had the pleasure of babysitting our nephews for the weekend and this is where they wanted to go. They loved it I did not. The few staff there was were very friendly. The bathroom had no toilet paper in two stall and no soap at on of the sinks. No paper towels either. Of the two hand sanitizing stations I... More

We came a few years ago and really enjoyed it. However, as the children (4 of them) age, they are only interested in the lazer tag and games. We buy the unlimited bands at $22 and expect things to be operational at 11:00 AM, opening time (this is a 45 minute drive for us). Two months ago the lazer tag... More

When it's raining hard or too cold, this is a great place to take kids to let off steam. Been there many times w/grandkids. Food is offered or you can bring in snacks and water. Lots of fun.

The admittance is reasonable and the food is a good value too. The pizza was better than what I expected and my boys love the laser tag. They serve beer so adults can partake and it might take the edge off as it is a very busy place and can be overwhelming at times.

I took my 5 yr old grandson here with his mom when they were visiting. He lived it, my daughter loved it and I thought it was great! Loved that they serves beer. It was well monitored by staff and clean, the laser tag was fun. I liked it and would go again.

The price to get in and play is 12bucks I didn't find that too be too high. But for an 8 year old and up I found they got bored a little fast. The laser tag area was small. They still enjoyed it. Arcarde area could be larger as well. It pretty much has enough to keep them busy for... More

A secure environment. I felt safe letting my son and his friend run around and play on the bouncy toys, hiding in tunnels, doing laser tag or wasting money in the Arcade. The food is better than Chucky Cheese, and there is plenty of seating for the parents to hang out and chat or read while the kids run amok.... More

We met many of my friends and their kids here. The kids had sooooo much fun. Generally it was a great place to gather, visit, keep the kids occupied, and have fun. There were just a couple of parental concerns... 1. The website lists prices for different age groups / play areas. The lady kept charging everyone $11.95, even the... More

I was excited to take my 3 year old to the tykes village where it was said to be exclusively for ages 4 and under. I figured it could be a place for her to plat without getting trampled....Wrong! Not enough staff to monitor the older kids that frequently dive, kick and push over the little ones. Some of the... More

We used to love going there but everytime we go there are less of the bouncy activities and the ones left are dangerous as we found out on our last visit. Both of my daughters got severe scrap wounds from exposed patches of Velcro and staff cared not one bit. Our visit was last Sunday and it is now Thursday... More
