Laser Tag is Legit, more staff would be nice

Laser tag alone was worth the cost. Only issue was having someone hook us up and let us do it. Did it twice no problem, came back an hour later and couldn't find anyone to run... read more

We have done a few birthday parties at Charlie's Safari and it has always been a hit. There is something fun for all kids age 1-12 years. Charlie's is my 7 year old son's favorite place to go and my 1 year old has a blast too. It is a great place to burn off extra energy on rainy days.

Laser tag alone was worth the cost. Only issue was having someone hook us up and let us do it. Did it twice no problem, came back an hour later and couldn't find anyone to run laser tag. But none the less it was still a good way to waste the day.

We go to Charlie Safari at least twice a month with our grandkids, ages 2-9. It's always a hit with the kids. It is quite noisy, but that is to be expected. Climbing in the maze with the kids also gives you a good workout! Adults are free, unless you're doing laser tag.

A fun family-friendly place to take children of all ages! I love going to Charlie's Safari with my family and often take my younger cousin who has autism. He absolutely loves going there and never wants to leave! There are tables for adults to sit, supervise, and talk. There's an arcade for children and teenagers to hangout. There's a big... More

Brought my 7 year old here for her first day of mid spring break and at 1:00 pm it was nearly empty, a perfect time to come. Only thing is when she went down the large slide on the main playground it was way to fast, she hit the second slope and knocked the wind out of her. But the... More

The kids seemed to have a blast and they served beer so the adults were happy too! Seemed like there were too many kids given the area to play. But a nice option for the Lacey/Olympia area for some family fun!

We chose to hav my son's birthday party Veterans Day which was a mistake. Extremely crowed and many mishaps like food taking way too long to be served. The positive was that the manage made up for all the issues and compensated us well. I may go again but not on a holiday!

The bathroom had no toilet paper in two stall and no soap at on of the sinks. No paper towels either. Of the two hand sanitizing stations I... More

We came a few years ago and really enjoyed it. However, as the children (4 of them) age, they are only interested in the lazer tag and games. We buy the unlimited bands at $22 and expect things to be operational at 11:00 AM, opening time (this is a 45 minute drive for us). Two months ago the lazer tag... More
