The worst part was the staff. When you first walk in you are given a lukewarm welcome & a "what are you doing here?" attitude, then you are told to immediately sign a waiver. They have a bounce house with rules. The problem is the rules are posted about 10 feet in the air facing the opposite direction of the bounce house and there isn't a bounce house "supervisor" of any kind. Of course many of these kids either won't notice the rules or even understand them if their parents do not explain it to them. Whenever the kids would break these rules, the staff would get on the announcement microphone, shut off the music and THREATEN the kids. Things like "If you do that again, we are deflating it!" and "If you do that again, I will ban you from the bounce house" or "Put your butt down and slide, or no more bounce house for you!" It was entirely disruptive and set an uncomfortable tone on the atmosphere. The staff was generally unhappy, unfriendly and just appeared to be lazy.
Second, the lack of games & activities was pathetic. The kids (4-6 year olds!) were bored after an hour. The rides that they offer are only operated about once an hour. Their prizes were lame.
The actual place was worse than a dilapidated Chuck E Cheese could ever be. The overall building was in desperate need of a good wash & new coats of paint. The whole place was sticky and smelled funny.
I was afraid when I ordered drinks & food from their concession stand that looked abandoned and unclean, but of course we had to feed the kids and myself. A medium pepperoni pizza & 2 SMALL ($2 refills) sodas cost almost $30 dollars. They price gouged for ordering Hungry Howie's pizza and having it delivered to their location.
