“Broken and rundown”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

No one knows what is going on. The staff and management are clueless!! Only a few bumper boats worked, the ropes are closed, the batting cages are old, and there really wasn't anything else to do. Odd times for it to be open.

“fun day for the kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

There's video games, go-karts, indoor driving range, putt putt, rock climbing, bumper boats, batting cages, and some other stuff. It's a good way to spend time with the kids and its fairly inexpensive.

“Looked closed to us”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013 via mobile

We went to go play at this place but when we tried the door it looked closed. The doors we tried were locked at 1pm and it looked like the arena door. The parking lot was empty so we thought it was closed and left. Maybe try more doors or call before you go.

“run-down and depressing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

This place was a ghost-town when I visited last. The 'attractions' are overpriced and underwhelming.
