“Going, going, gone?”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

This is a fun place for a family. Teens and adults will enjoy the race cars, older kids and adults the miniature golf, and younger ones both golf and a large arcade. Toss in a batting cage and what more could you want? Evidently something more, since news reports are that it is closing! Maybe even as early as this summer. If so, it will be a loss.

“Great place for kids”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Having a safe place to take kids is important and Malibu is great for a variety of fun activities. The mini golf options are fun, the batting cages a challenge, and the kids love the video games (of course). The food is a bit limited, but... Definitely recommend, particularly for a rainy day to get kids out of the house.

“Great Place to Have Fun”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is great for parties or just with friends. They have a race track, two miniature golf courses, a good size arcade including air hockey tables. Just a great place to kill some time and have fun.

Malibu is a fun place. My kids & grand kids & even I have had a lot of fun there. There are race cars, miniature golf & lots of video games. We usually do the miniature golf which is a good value & lots of fun for the price. It can get pricey though if you want to do all of the attractions.

“Fun activities, but not the best customer service.”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

We arrived for the early bird golf (first hour $3.50 per person) Two workers passed us by while we were waiting at the golf window- each one saying that they were not working the register. Finally a young girl, who appeared as though we were bothering her, came to help us. Probably not the best person to have work with the customers. The miniature golf courses were a bit run down, but it didn't seem to bother my kids. Our balls got stuck in two different "holes"- the windmill and the dog house so we had to go back to the counter to ask for replacement balls. Again, the workers were less than friendly. After golf we played video/redemption prize games. $20 gave us 110 tokens. Great value! Great variety of games, although the basketballs in the shooting game were all flat.

Redeeming tickets for prizes was ridiculous. The woman was "training" as it was her first day. That was fine, at first, since my two kids were the only ones redeeming at the time. Then more and more kids came to the counter demanding to exchange their points for prizes...it quickly became nightmare.
I was relieved to finally get out of there.

Our overall experience was not the best when interacting with the people working there, but the kids had fun playing golf and video games.
