Owner description: Carlisle Sports Emporium is Central Pennsylvania's year-round indoor and outdoor interactive entertainment complex. Known as "The Place to Play," we are the perfect destination for all ages and every occasion. Our interactive fun features multiple go-kart tracks, two 18-hole Castle and Western themed miniature golf courses, a brand new 6800 sq. ft. 2-tier LASERTRON laser tag arena, a roller skating rink, Victory Lane Café, and the largest arcade in the area with an indoor rock climbing wall! Due to this broad array of exciting activities, we specialize in parties, track rentals, and group outings of any size. Not to mention we love hosting bus and tour groups! Better yet, the Carlisle Sports Emporium is easily accessible from all the major highways of south Central Pennsylvania. We’re located just off Interstate 81 and the Pennsylvania Turnpike, making us just minutes away from Camp Hill, Harrisburg, Hershey, York, Gettysburg and Lancaster.

“Clean and Friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2012

We have used the Sports Emporium several times while in town for the car shows. We have played a few games, but mostly drive the go-karts. The outside track has three double cars, which was perfect for our 3 children to ride with an adult, then the older two kids were able to do the indoor karts. My husband said the Grand Prix track outisde has some very rough spots in the concrete now which jarred him around in the kart.The young people that work there have always been respectful, friendly, and helpful. There are two mini golf courses which we have only ever done at night-but we have noticed a lot of lights that do not work, leaving dark areas. There are water fountains and 'rivers' going through the courses with blue (I think) water that is pretty gross looking in some areas. You really have to watch the little ones so they don't fall in the water. It is a bit pricey at $7 a person-with no discount given for children.
The batting cages were closed "due to renovation," even though there was no work being done at the time, they appeared to be broken. Overall, this is a fun, safe environment to take your family. The only real complaint I would have would be how hot it was inside. During the dangerous heatwaves last week, the air conditioning was not on. We felt bad for people who were working there because it felt like an oven.

We love arcades and this one was great! They had a lot of games, the staff was nice, and the go-karts were fun.

“Decent entertainment for the kids.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2012

The kids really enjoyed the laser tag and the video machines. Most of the machines are the "try your luck" type which I personally hate. I would like more actual video games to play, but the kids seemed to like them. Without coupons or deals this place would be way overpriced for what you get. Fortunately, the deals are not hard to find.

“As expected”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2012

Great for birthday parties. They have activities to please most kids. Management is a little backward. They could easily make this place better with a few minor changes.
