Great place to bring your kids. It can be expensive, so be sure to get an all day pass. Main Event is similar to Dave & Busters, but substantially better. It offers bowling, laser tag, arcade area, billiards, obstacle course, restaurant and bar area.

The bowling is excellent, very well lit, offers automatic gutter barriers for kids, table service for food/drinks, and more. The arcade area features two very large classic arcade games, has to be at least 10 feet high, for PacMan/Galaga and Space Invaders. Laser tag and obstacle course also very well done.

The restaurant and bar area also works well for adults waiting for their kids to run out of energy, or money.

Overall a great place for family entertainment.

No hostess, had to clean off our own table, got the drink order wrong, charged the wrong amount to our card then reversed it and recharged (which caused cards to be shut down). All around, it was bad. Management never came over to apologize.

Stumbled on this because the nearby Diamondback Billiards is not actually a pool hall (they sell pool tables). In any case its very deceptive from the outside. When you walk it the place is huge. They offer bowling, billiards and arcade games. For about $20 each we all bought one of their fun passes which gave us unlimited billiards and bowling. I really appreciated how they organized the balls by weight and finger hole size. Made it really easy to find the right size. Bar service at the lanes was non-existent though. Over at the billiards tables we played a bunch of games and had excellent service. The food was excellent although the Siracha wings were over the top hot. The arcade games are not included with the fun pass but if you order off of a separate menu you can get play cards of various denominations. All in all an excellent place to burn a few hours after a day of meetings.

If you don't consider the cost--this place is great for kids. Bowling is expensive unless you have at least 4 to 6 people. They charge a flat $22.00 per hour to bowl despite the size of your group. The max that can bowl per lane is 6 people. Shoes are another $4 or so. There is a mid week special of $7.00 per person for unlimited bowling but not sure days and times of that offer. They also have a high ropes course and laze tag. Again there is a mid day special of $7.00 per person for unlimited lazwr or ropes. Not sure of the standard prices for these. The ropes course is above the game area and the kids like to get up there and try it out. There is about 12 little obstacles up there. My experience is that after 45 minutes or so the kids are board and want to get down and play games. The games are the killer. They start at about $1.35 per game. It adds up quickly and $35.00 is gone before you know it. So...there's lots to do, it's very loud and exciting, but you had better be prepared to drop some cash if you are going to stay long.
