“Hinkle's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

We played last year here and took a friend. She loved it! She had never ridden go carts, played laser tag or video games - it was like taking a kid all over again. We rode the go carts, bumper boats, laser tag, video games and other things. We were very tired by the end of the day. We also played miniature golf. The golf course had spin the wheel to do different things while playing and that was fun . Use a coupon to go though since it can be expensive with out a coupon.

“Great afternoon with the family!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2013

First time visit was awesome! Go-Karts, bumper cars, water squirting bumper boats (I was soaked!), rock climbing (Made it to the top! Not bad for an ol' geezer.), lazer tag (My team needs work!), miniature golf with water hazards, paintball, arcade games, and a whole lot of fun! Got the unlimited pass on Groupon for $13 each/regular price is $27. Definitely a great deal! Children ranged from 8-17 and all enjoyed it immensely. Staff was super attentive, courteous and respectful (Not normally found in Albuquerque). Only complaint....we did get to do everything. Wish we could've done it all again!

We'll be back.

“Nice, but pricey for what you get”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2013

Hinkle is a nice place to spend the afternoon, but it's not something most families can do very often. The all day pass was 26.95 per person, plus tax, regardless of age. That is definitely more economical than paying for individual attractions (if you want to do more than 3 things), IF you try to ride everything or do activities more than once. Still, at nearly a hundred dollars for my family of three, it's not so amazing that I'll likely do it again. Unless you really want to do some kind of laser tag or paintball or something, I'd recommend at least considering Cliffs (local amusement park) if you're looking for one family activity to do. I do have to say (in case company reads this), that the best employee was the guy working the bungee trampoline. He completely got into it and was really encouraging for kids. The rest of the staff were friendly enough, but just kind of standing around doing their summer jobs.

“Lots to Do in the Northeast Heights”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

We played miniature golf in a well-maintained course with our grandchildren. In addition to miniature golf the Fun Center has a number of other activities to do. My only complaint is that one has to walk through the noisy arcade to get to the golf course.
