“Lots of space but a little dated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

I was impressed with the size of this place. Loads and loads of pool tables, numerous bowling lanes, a large arcade, laser tag etc. You could easily fit a vast quantity of people within the venue.
The service was friendly and the food, which we ordered for a large group, was very good for mass catering.
My main criticism of the place would be that it is looking a little dated. Floors, the bar area, the entrance etc would all benefit from some modernisation. Otherwise it's a good place to hang out with groups or even with kids.

“Typical "Event" place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

You got arcade games, bowling, pool tables, food, a bar, party rooms, TVs for sports and laser tag. It's a good place to hang out with friends and catch the game. Main Event is just like Shenanagins (Rockwall) or Strikz (Frisco). Bring money, you will spend quick.

“Worth the bucks!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013

My 14 year old son and his best friend loved the laser tag arena, said it was the best one they'd ever been in. Two-levels, which I guess is rare. They played over and over again. We spent part of two days here and they still didn't do half the stuff they could have. The food in the café is very good. It's not a cheap place to play, but the kids definitely got my money's worth!
