“What a rip off!!! Terrible service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

I've waited many years for a superbowl to finally arrive in my home town and following my first visit there I can confirm it will be my last.

Firstly the cost for 2 rounds for 2 adults and 2 kids was £32, Those 2 rounds were over with in less than 40 minutes. For £50 the family to Chester Zoo and spent the whole day there and had endless fun pulling faces at the animals!!!. If this place wants to stay open it seriously needs to review it's prices. Then there was the Cafe (If you can call it that), We decided to get a Cappucino, Tea and 2 soft drinks. Every time my wife approached the counter the girl behind it disappeared off with no one else in site to serve. This happened 3 times before it took her over 10 minutes to serve us, completely ridiculous and then she insulted us by asking for £8.00. To add to the experience one of the guide rails on the bowling lane was stuck in "Up" position so I had to wait another 10 minutes for them to sort that out.

Without doubt, probably the quickest £40 and the worst value £40 i've spent on family entertainment. If your planning on going to superbowl at the weekend , have a look where else you can get better value for your money. I will be from now on.

“Fun evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

We booked in advance which is probably a good idea on a Saturday evening.
A good location on The Hive Leisure Complex so you can incorporate a meal or visit to the cinema in your evening as even with two games booked you are not there for a full evening, but i suppose that depends on the size of your party.
Everything ran smoothly and everyone had a great time.

“Hour out with kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Considering its only just a year old there is no atmosphere and it feels empty even when all the lanes are being used. Alot of money for an hours entertainment! More special deals needed!

“Want to know how not to run a play centre, ask these guys.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2012

Friendly staff, but no one knows what they are doing. Waiting times are a joke. Half the arcade machines are broken. Not used to shoddy service like, no managers to be seen, all hiding from complaining punters. Will not be coming back.
