The kids wanted to do laser tag, and we happened to go on a night when it was only $7 per activity. I thought it was going to be $7 per game, but they were able to play as many games as they wanted, what...More

Great place to bring your kids. It can be expensive, so be sure to get an all day pass. Main Event is similar to Dave & Busters, but substantially better. It offers bowling, laser tag, arcade area, billiards, obstacle course, restaurant and bar area. The...More

No hostess, had to clean off our own table, got the drink order wrong, charged the wrong amount to our card then reversed it and recharged (which caused cards to be shut down). All around, it was bad. Management never came over to apologize.

If you don't consider the cost--this place is great for kids. Bowling is expensive unless you have at least 4 to 6 people. They charge a flat $22.00 per hour to bowl despite the size of your group. The max that can bowl per lane...More
