“Birthday party fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

This is a pre-teenager's birthday party dream spot. I can't imagine how much fun this would have been to go to when I was a kid, but to see the attractions and things to do here through a kid's eyes is almost as much fun. They have food here, too, but the main attraction has to be the games and carnival-like attractions. For adults, there is a treasure of antique signs and things hanging from the ceiling and mounted on the walls; mostly local treasures like old signs from businesses that are no longer around.

Fun place for the family and even parents. Love the rock wall. Is a bit overwhelming on a busy night with all the kids, but it is a kids place.

“Nice surprise.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We went here twice during our trip. I was pleasantly surprised to find that it was not crowded at all. My husband and kids did rock climbing at Vertical Endeavors with no previous experience and loved it! We took advantage of a family special on Thursday afternoons and had several hours of fun (mini golf, batting cage, and lots of laser tag) for not too much money. Definitely a place to check out on a hot or rainy day.

“Good for kids on a rainy day”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

typical kids joint - lots of arcade games, ticket games, three batting cages, pool mini-golf, laser tag, One nice thing is that you don't have to buy a wrist band. You can go in and get tokens for the games or batting cages. Even better is the Vertical Endeavors rock climbing center within the giant warehouse.. $10 gets you unlimited climbing with rated climbs.

“I think this is the former Thrillz.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

This business cleaned up the former Thrillz and put in batting cages, video games galore and laser tag. I come every november for a day or two to duluth with the kids, now 12, 15 - they have a great time and I lose a lot of quarters. Oh well, we have fun - and sometimes I beat them when we use side-by-side video game car or boat races.
