The name says it. If you can go on a weekday, I'd recommend it. On the weekend, this place is a complete madhouse. My son probably asks to go here at least twice per week. It is a fun time as long as it isn't overly crowded with birthday parties coming and going.

Our daughter decided this was where she wanted to have her eighth birthday party. Going Bonkers offers two packages for birthday celebrations. We chose a package that included a party room for one hour, plates cups and utensils, beverages and play cards for the amusement machines. For six girls, including raising the amount of credit on the play cards to... More

We take the grandkids every summer. They play for hours and the food is good too!! They are less expensive than some other similar play places in the area. We came, we played, we bought the t-shirts!!

Bonkers provides climbing, running, slides, bridges, video gam s and food. One section is good for kids under 5. Food is OK. THE GAMES GET EXPENSIVE. Oh, well.

Going Bonkers is a great place for birthday parties, but they are very, very busy on Saturdays! There are rooms off of the main area for pizza parties, but they have a tight schedule to follow. There are arcade games to play for a cost and a large indoor play area. Drawback is that everyone that enters has to pay,... More

Have taken grandchildren there two times (they live quite a distance away) but we all enjoyed it both times. They are spread out in ages, 7, 12 & 15 and it worked for all of them. They enjoyed picking out the games they wanted to try and played their favorites a number of times. Adults would enjoy most games also.... More

We just found this place while finding some fill in time during a road trip. Our 9 year old was super excited when he saw everthing he could climb in. Staff was super friendly and helpful. We were welcomed an hour before they closed. Even though our little guy was taking his time spending his tickets and it was closing... More

The kids had a great time climbing around in the play area and playing all of the games. Food was terrible.

Food wasn't great, hard for adults to talk. Arcade games were expensive on top of the fee to get in.
