Fun City
Reviewed April 1, 2013

My 12 and 8 year old grandkids help me write this. First, it is very expensive and not worth an all day ticket. Second, the access cards are easily switched so if you end up with a 2 hour card and you paid for an all day, you are out of luck. No refunds, no concern for lost, stolen, or mixed up cards even if the staff did it. The clerk even said "It happens all the time." Well, if that is so, why is the system not upgraded? Fun City needs to update the electronic access system, i.e. bracelets with bar code on them, not cards. Third, arcade games are limited in variety (mainly weapons, fighting, etc.). Third, the laser tag system is weak and inaccurate. Fourth, the foam Factory canons do not work and there are lines to go up and down the stairs. Fifth, for 50 reward tickets you can get a little plastic spider - whooppee. Sixth, the restroom was out of order. Seventh, machine dispensed drinks cost $3.50. Laser Maze was the only activity worth standing in line. We did not try bowling or the Grand Prix cars.

Although the name is constantly changing, the insides stay the same. There is laser tag, a bowling alley, a huge ball pit, and lots of classic and new arcade games.
It is expensive, just a warning!
I enjoy myself when I go there, it's a fun place to go just to have a fun time.

This place has been named and renamed many times over the past few years. The new owners have done a good job of making it a family friendly, safe and fun once again.

The ball pit is a favorite of all kids, don't miss this! The bowling alley is a bit tired and could use a bit of a facelift. The food in the bowling area is better than average for bar food fare.

The video game area is quite large and has just about anything to satisfy most anyone's taste.

One nice addition on the north entrance to the bowling alley, Fun City has added a pinball machine and many 80's video games (Pac Man, Space Invaders, Frogger, etc).

Half the games in the arcade and most of the air powered toys in the ball pit area don t work properly, but they ll take your money. It took my kids 20 minutes to get to use the climbing wall (I had 4 kids, but only two can climb at once, and only on the same side of the wall, for safety reasons . FYI, I owned a climbing wall company, and averaged 2.5 minutes per kid).
Additionally, unless your kids are over 12, they probably aren't tall enough to ride the gocarts. If they are over 12, they probably will hate this place.
I had to go and get employees to open attractions, because the oldest staff member I saw was around 15, and clearly afraid to make any decisions.

Do not eat here this place is a joke service is horrible. Waited 15 minutes to get mayo. Never asked if I wanted a refill on my tea but my friend got a refill on his alcohol drink real quick, oh but with no alcohol in it.
