“Fun but plan to spend!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Fun City was lots of fun but it IS expensive. A card system is utilized so that there are no coins or dollar bills being inserted into games or exchanged with workers. You can put as little or as much as you like on to your Fun City card. Pretty ingenious marketing on their part. It's quite easy for children to lose track of how much they're spending. Most games are $1.00. There are a couple of games for .50, and .75. Tickets, or points, are electronically added to your card after you complete the game which can later be exchanged for a nice variety of prizes. Besides arcade games there is a candy store, a 50's theme restaurant, bowling (glow bowling at night). laser tag, simulator machines and an indoor go-kart track. The go-kart track has smaller cars which run every 4th time for the younger set. Older kids on up to adults will have a blast on the larger go-karts. I really had no complaints except for the fact that while my family bowled the music that was playing was definitely the explicit versions of popular music as we heard the "f" word many, many times. Not what I would consider "family friendly"!

“Good Times, lots of games to play for all ages”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

They have a lot of games to play for all ages. The virtual roller coasters were a good time, Go-carts were a blast as well. If you are staying it worth going over for a bit to check out all the games and everything they have to offer.

“Way more fun than expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

I was skeptical. Thought it would be lame.

Boy, was I wrong! While the joint wasn't necessarily jumping when we were there on a Sun/Monday stay, we had a great time, especially the race cars.

It's a very nice facility. While maybe it could be bigger, it was big enough. You don't run out of things to do, and everything was well thought out.

“Pzazz/Fun City”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

First, the spelling is "Pzazz". There is no "I" in the name. It's a destination type resort that offers something for everyone with an indoor and outdoor water park, indoor amusement park, bowling center, and casino. There are also 3 dining venues - Edgewater, a buffet, Gasoline Alley's, a snack bar, and Boogaloo's, a sit-down restaurant. Food is good in all three. The fact that you can park in a covered ramp and get to all of these spots without venturing outside (except for the outdoor water park) is particularly great.

“Don't take valuables with you!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We have had $ and a phone stolen there! When we talked to the police, we were told it was a common event there! It's a nice indoor water park, just leave your valuables elsewhere!

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to post a review! I'm very sorry to hear that you had issues with your belongings at our facility. Huck's Harbor does provide guests with lockers that require a key to access. They are available for $5, and $3 is returned to you upon return of the key when you are finished. Next time, be sure to get one of these lockers to ensure the safety of your belongings!

Thank you!
