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!

“Don't go for skating rink”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

Been there twice now for roller skating. Same issues both times. There is only one staff member to work rental skates, snack bar (which has NOTHING but beverage), and music. It was about 10 minutes after the public skating started that there was staff to help us get rental skates... And that is because one of the customers went to get someone. There were leaks in roof so there was a trash can on the rink as well as the hallway. The music was not suited for younger kids (as the songs were explicate) and I could not believe they played certain songs unedited. The bathrooms were dirty and needed updated. I'm pretty sure we will be going elsewhere next time.

“Not worth the money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

This place really hasn't changed much in 20 years honestly. Same broken games. Go kart track needs work.

“Great fun for kids rain or shine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

We went there on a fall rainy day with young grandsons 5 & 9. They had a great time with the arcade games an the Indoor go carts. It was not very busy on a Friday and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The use of a game credit make it very easy to do the game most are worthwhile some are just a one chance games. Game prices very based on complexity and length of play. There was a few more outdoor things that I wish we could have done. Not to far from Harrisburg

“Good Family Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

We had gift passes (that we never seemed to have time to use) and gave it a shot this past weekend. It was a fun, clean and well-staffed venue. We did a round of go-karts and mini-golf, and both were fun!

“Fun for a few hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

I've been here a few times. I always got the package with the laser tag go karts and mini golf or fast car things and 10 dollars arcade bucks. It took up about two hours of my time and was overall very entertaining. If you bring kids you'll probably get suckered into spending a lot more money but when I go with my friends it's 2 hours of fun for 25 bucks and then home to remember I'm too old for this
