“Rip off and dangerous for little ones”
Reviewed October 6, 2012

Just came home from celebrating my son's 5th birthday. We rented a room for 7 kids and, at $20 per kid, plus extra for pizza for the adults, we were so disappointed. It started by each kid only getting 4 tokens. Just about every activity requires 3 so that's only one game per kid. They called us to the room for lunch, but only had the adult pizza ready. Kids were sitting there waiting for 15 minutes until their pizza came, steaming hot, so they were all forced to wait again until it cooled down. When it was time for cupcakes, they delivered them in a rusty old baking tin, and were one cupcake short. They plopped them in front if my son with the matches tucked in between, and proceeded to drop one on the table. The cupcakes themselves tasted like they had freezer burn. I only know this cause I had a bite of one of the kids as they don't provide any extras unless you pay. Then we had to rush out of the room as we only had it for an hour.
On top of that, there is a complete lack of supervision in the play area. There were kids there that were far too big/old to be there, and were so rough with the little kids. Staff never said a word so we frequently had to step in to tell these teenagers to watch what they were doing. They just should not be allowed in a little kid play area and it's a wonder someone doesn't get hurt.

So poorly done. Such a rip off. Don't waste your money.

“Dirty”
Reviewed September 5, 2012

I find funworx dirty. Needs a good scrub. Not for kids younger than 3 yrs of age. Could be quite dangerous

As you can imagine the volume of people that we have coming through the doors during our summer months for Big Splash are quiet extensive and certain areas can sometimes show these results. This is why after the season, we shut FunworX down for 2 full days and detail all areas. We have the carpets and floors professionally cleaned, as well as all private rooms and public washrooms are detailed.

FunworX has been created to be a safe play environment for you and your children. As no facility can truly be 100% secure, we ask that parents/guardians keep mind of their children at all times, and our gates/fencing has been placed accordingly to assist you. Our playstructure is also geared towards children from ages 2-12, and again we depend on parents/guardians to monitor their older children to ensure that they too are playing safe.

Again, thank you for your comments and if you would like to discuss further you can reach me directly at my extension 2264

“Dirty, Dirty and Dirty”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

While the kids had fun, from a parents perspective it's dirty and gross. Play area has stained carpets, dirt everywhere on equipment and floor. Tons of dust and it hasn't been cleaned in ages. Bathrooms are just as bad, floors were cleaned months ago, fingerprints and grims everywhere. Gross!

Furthermore, no safety in place in terms of your kids going in and out, staff doesn't seem interested and food overpriced. Seating very uncomfortable for parents!

PlayFit in Cambridge across from Mall is a better choice, especially for younger kids.

We won't be back unless we're forced to attend a party.
