“Really exceeded our expectations”
Reviewed December 28, 2011

We purchased a Groupon for a Family Night Out for $39.00. It included miniature golf for 6, an 18 inch pizza, 2 pitchers of pop, an appetizer sampler and 120 arcade tokens. If you don't have a Groupon they offer specials that include pizza, pop, tokens and miniature golf.
We arrived at noon when the place opened and ordered our pizza right away. For $1.50 each you could add ingredients. The pizza was actually not bad. The appetizer sampler included mozzarella sticks, wings and breaded mushrooms. Those were good as well. There were plenty of food options available for purchase. The manager was running the food counter alone so it took a little while to take orders. We were only second in line but the line grew considerably while we were ordering.
All of the games gave tickets to be redeemed for prizes. We were impressed that all of the games worked and most only required 1 token. We really enjoyed the slot machines (which paid in tickets). There were a lot of games and toys available at the ticket redemption counter. Again there was only one person working the counter so we had to wait a bit.
The place was relatively clean and quite large. There were plenty of tables to sit at and a free children's movie was playing at 1:00PM. I believe that an adult movie was going to play in the evening. The website shows different specials that they offer each day including a $1.00 menu on Thursdays and unlimited miniature golf packages.
There is an 18 hole, glow in the dark miniature golf course that was a lot of fun and in pretty good shape. Even the adults enjoyed playing!
There is a Hershey's Ice Cream counter as well as a video rental store inside the place.
We drove out from Wheeling, so about a 35 minute drive. We would probably go back again over a holiday break if the opportunity presented itself.

People's choice has enough entertainment. It is so spacious. Rides last longer than chuck e cheese. Great glow in the dark mini golf.
