We hosted a work event here in a private room. Jamar was very attentive and organized. The food was surprisingly good and the servers were excellent. Afterwards we all played games and a good time was had by all.

The place is more suitable for young people. The food is average. It was noisy. Those who play games would be good for them. We got a voucher when we booked Viator tour.

It's a pretty noisy place. Food was not that great. Deserts are limited and average at best. As long as you're going for the games, it's a good experience but would not recommend the food.

Nice indoor fun for older kids, especially on a rainy day. There's lots of fun to be had for a wide age group. I suggest keeping your power card as it costs $3 per new card. The card never expires according to a staff member...More

I recommend not making a membership. Just pay for a play card and you can play right away.
