“Obviously the only choice in town and they know it.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

The machines are all broken and the facility is dirty. The ticket counting machine miscounted all the tickets after the games ripped us off. The card system is stupid. Paying a fee to get the card then gaining the privilege of spending more money to load the card?! A card that by the way you will never be able to zero out because the games have arbitrary charge amounts per play such as $1.39 and $.29. All of the 2 player, first person shooter games allow one person to play then steal your money for player 2 without letting you join. The staff make it very apparent that you are inconveniencing them and interrupting their texting to ask if your 7 year old can please have the 100 tickets she won but the machine failed to give. We will not be going back.

“Much ado over nothing...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2013 via mobile

Came here with a school trip of 8th graders and was wholly UNDERwhelmed. As you enter the sin of dingy floor and pale lighting. 10 of the 40 or so machines are broken or our of service. The tickets that you get from machines are so overpriced that to cash in tickets would cost you $5 to $8 for a piece of candy! The bumper boats are also in disrepair and run at an anemic pace. The go kart track is pedestrian and had te kids complaining of a ripoff as they only let you ride around 1 time! The laser tag area is as big as a closet and the mini golf has you losing golf balls off the poorly designed course more that you're on it . The batting cages are as awful as the equipment. The blend of hum and rattle over the sound system causes a headache, while the food is mediocre and unremarkable. Very poor value for price paid, and this is no place for young or older kids.. Save your time and money and find another place. ANY place other than here!

“Staff needs better training”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

My party is due to take place any day now for my son and i call to verify and yet again i get told a different story for a 3rd time. If it wasn't for the fact that people were showing up i would avoid this place. Employee put me on hold but really didn't and i got to listen how she didn't want to deal with me because she was on a break. Tried to go on the company website and it's down. Overall im one angry mama.

“Not Bad!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

There's not much intertainment here in Tallahassee for kids, so fun station is what a loy of the bigger kids have to rely on for fun, as far as games and wanting to get away from the home setting. The overall experience is not bad and the pizza is pretty good.
