This is an indoor play place for children with adult supervision. First off, there are no video games! And NO arcade games. I like that! Good variety of things to do, and mostly thought inspiring. Climbing, sliding, jumping, running, riding toys for toddlers and preschool,...More

Decided to give it a try, and it was really nice! Big place, lots of things for kids to do, staff (Bex) was really nice. It will definitely be a toss up next time between here and smart moves - we like them equally.

We've been in the past and wouldn't go again but after viewing new management we decided to give it another chance and we sure are glad we did!! The place is noticeably cleaner and the staff is amazing great way to spend the day.

Hello, Yes, we are under new management but you have to give us a little time. Glad you noticed it is cleaner and friendlier staff. The menu is currently being worked on. We are also getting new carpets and some new kitchen equipment. We currently...More

Very dirty and all around poor service. Always under-staffed and disrespectful to clients. The carpets look like they are over 20 years old and the food tastes awful. The prizes are sub-mediocre at best, and are probably all available for less at the local Walmart...More

Well we came here one day to check it out and I'm not impressed. However we are more used to cheeky monkeys type of thing. This place has a pretty good selection of old school arcade games and a teddy bear stuffing machine which is...More
