This place is AMAZING!!! Being our first time there we were greeted by the owners who shared their story with us. Right off the bat we had a great feeling. When you visit mom and pop businesses ran by people that were once dreamers have more times than not turned into strapped, over worked owners barely holding on especially in a pandemic. However not these two you could tell they loved their place and had passion for making family memories. We spotted these owners doing exactly what they ask their employees to do all day and jumped in to every position. Every employee we encountered was phenomenal. Food was great(we also enjoyed an establishment for this nature that allowed alcohol), everywhere you looked you noticed yet another perfectly thought out use of space, everything was spotless which is incredibly tough having dozens of children running around. I know am rambling but truthfully we haven’t been to establishment like this in a long time if at all. Sure you can go to places like monkey Joe’s, Chuck E. Cheese, Kokomo Joe’s etc all have similar attractions but I guarantee you will not get the hospitality, quality and entertainment for EVERY age that this place has at those other places. We will definitely be back very soon!

Playtime Arcade and bar is awesome! Great place to hang with friends and enjoy a fully stocked bar, Blues and Cardinal games with drink specials and amazing food...the wings, tots and pizza are the BEST! Axe throwing, bowling, laser tag and a climbing wall are available, as well as old skool games like pop a shot and skeeball. Plenty of bounce house action for the littles if it's a family event.

Great value, clean, bright and open atmosphere and incredible small business owners who treat you like family!

Fun place to take the kids, ours range from 14-2 and they all enjoy playtime. The addition of laser tag is quite a hit with my boys. Family owned and they couldn’t be nicer! Definitely recommend!

My friends and family had an amazing time for my sons birthday. We played for hours and not only did the kids have a blast, but the adults did as well. We’ve visited many times and never had a bad experience. Food is great and staff is always friendly.

Our kids were excited to visit Playtime Party Center, but we were very disappointed. It was like they were trying to be a Chuck-E-Cheese type of place, but way less welcoming. I felt like they were nickel and diming every last thing. They charge admission, they charge for games, they charge for inflatables, they charge for lockers, they even charged for a tiny cup of ice water - basically if they can tack a fee on to something they do! The girl at the counter said the word "awesome" about 20 times in a total of five minutes. She tried to tell us our coupon was expired, but it wasn't. She tried get us to buy socks, but we had some. All tokens are $0.25, but most games cost more then one token. There are rude signs posted over the salad bar about it not being complimentary and not sharing - duh! The items on the salad bar looked so old and yucky. Didn't see one person eating a salad. Another sign said only certain soda cups can be refilled and others cannot. Ridiculous! The pizza was under-cooked and tasted like a Chef Boyardee box mix. The kids played their games. There was one ticket counting machine for the whole place, and it was not even working properly. When redeeming our tickets for the usual junk, the girl was so stingy about every last ticket. She wouldn't dare round up two tickets to give a four-year-old girl a plastic bracelet. It was crazy how many silly rules they had that made you feel like you had no common sense or human decency. I guess I am used to Chuck-E-Cheese, where everything is one token, the staff are friendly and welcoming, there are not rude signs posted, and they aren't so stingy with everything. I would not go back to Playtime Party Center ever again.

The only reason we come back is because my kid enjoys the indoor playground, and it's too cold outside.
The owner is RUDE at every visit. She doesn't smile, or say thank you. They nickle and dime you for EVERYTHING, even a tiny cup of ice water. They even reuse their gift cards. I think they buy their prizes simply for looks because most any decent prize is over 500 tickets, and that would take for ever to collect. Their food is gross, and overpriced. it's clean, but you'll get more bang for your buck at Chuck E cheese....

What place charges a $2.00 per person entrance fee just to walk in the door and have the privilege of ordering their lousy food and BUY tickets for their broken down and germ infested rides? No one but Partytime.
This place is a total joke and their staff is not pleasant! In fact they are downright crabby!
Planning a birthday party, better check it out first! The so called party rooms are so tiny forget more than just a couple of kids. Parents have to stand outside the room because there is no room inside for everyone. And then you get rude glares by the staff because you are in their hallway.
Please oh please if you go there, bring along some hand sanitizer and wipes and clean each ride or game your kids play on and the tables if you eat anything as you never see the staff cleaning the tables. I honestly cannot believe the health department hasn't shut this place down.
And even though the food is positively disgusting and overpriced, you cannot bring anything in.
And don't waste your money on the skeeball. It consistently breaks down and doesn't spit out the tickets. Then the staff won't help when you report it.
Just an awful place and I am actually shocked that the City of Wentzville is not doing something about this so called admission fee. Fee for what? It is nothing but highway robbery.

Cost is outrages. Kids running not enough employees to keep control. Food prices ridiculous for family fun. Will not recommend to friends.

So sorry you feel that way. We have added a lot of attractions of which can be expensive if you do everything individually. We have combo packages such as a $10 game card and all day jump for $18. Feel free to call me at 314-280-3278 to discuss all our options available. Again, my apologies if you had less than an exceptional time.

We had visited the prior location many times over the last 5 years and were excited to try the new location in January 2019. The new location was great. Loved the addition of laser tag for our older kids. Loved the bowling alleys and rock wall. They also added a bar and a full kitchen which was awesome for parents. Food was such an improvement over the last location. The $29.99 unlimited pass was the way to go for us as I felt like you got a great value for the money as our kids bounced, did the rock wall, laser tag and unlimited video games. We got way more plays and fun in 2 hours for that deal rather than worry about costs adding up for everything. True, they didn't get to earn tickets with the all inclusive deal but honestly, the tickets were the biggest problem for our family with young kids. The tickets always caused a fight or 20 min of indecisiveness and regret. It was so much better to tell the kids there were no tickets but you could play all you want. Nice new changes Playtime. We will be back.
