“Pricey!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013 via mobile

We went there for a rainy day activity. The facility was clean and there is a good size bowling alley. They only have 1 blowup and it was $5 for 30min!!! Monkey Joes charges $5 on their half days and that's for as long as you stay with 5 blowups for older kids and 2 for under 3. The video games were a complete waste of money! $2 for 1 turn on a wheel of fortune game. There is an indoor lunar golf that has 9 holes, if you want 18 you go around twice. There was one small corner area that was free for kids to play on. It was a soft play like you would find at Chick-fil-a. Not interested in a return visit here.

I am sorry if you were misinformed. Our bounce house and slide is $5 but it is to bounce all day. Our 3-story soft playground is free for all children under the size requirement. We also have many specials that we run throughout the week that make having fun very affordable. Super Sunday: $15, 11am to 6pm . Monday Madness: $15 4pm to 10pm. Wacky Wednesday: 11am to 5pm. All of these are UNLIMITED play packages which includes: bowling, laser tag, mini-golf, bounce house and slide, and many arcade games.

Many new games are added throughout the year. We try to offer many fun packages that are affordable for families. We are a great spot to beat the heat or spend a rainy day.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

We took our kids here and every game we wanted to play was broken! My daughter wanted to jump on the bouncy house but it was flat! We also thought there should be happy hour drinks no such luck , we won't be back waste of $$$$$ big time

I am sorry that you were disappointed with Planet Fun. We had our bounce house go down and we immediately ordered a new one but it did take about 6 weeks to get the new version made and delivered. It is up and kids are bouncing and having a great time. We have moved out several games that have been having trouble and have many new games in. Three New (3) skee balls, milk jug toss,(2)super shots, space balls, air hockey, (2) snow cross, and many more games have been added,

We run many specials throughout the week. Super Sunday, Monday Madness, Wacky Wednesday, Cosmic Bowling. We ARE NOT allowed to run "HAPPY HOUR" in the state of North Carolina.

We are always keeping up with the electronic and trying to keep the newest and most fun games in the facility.
