“better than chuck e cheese that's for sure!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

with water bumper cars, rock climbing walls, miniature golf, go carts, batting cages, 2 story game room, snack bar & a sit down pizza/café how can you go wrong?!

Took our granddaughter & she had a blast!

Sorry Chuck E Cheese but after having been to this place it really shows how out of date you are!

Well worth the travel time!

“Unlimited Pass is a Bargain!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

Took my son for the first time (10 years old) and we bought the unlimited pass. We got our monies worth. Does not include the batting cages or zip-line which was fine. We must have raced go-karts 30 times that day. The min-golf course was still pretty wet from the sprinklers so that was more of a challenge even though my wife did get a hole-in-one... :) We also played laser-tag with the pass and the arcade is quite enjoyable. Fun for the whole family...

“pool area clean and indoors!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2014

We only got to look at the pool area but would have used it if we brought our bathing suits! We did not see any other family fun areas in the hotel.

“Excellent Fun for the Whole Family, But Look for a Deal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

I was able to spend the entire day here with the eat and play deal. I got it at a discount for $10 for a large cheese pizza and 4 unlimited game cards. If you were to stick with that, that would be $2.50 per person for unlimited games AND a large pizza, which is a deal I haven't seen beat anywhere.

However, the game cards have restrictions and can't be played for ticket redemption games. This makes sense, but there's a better way to do it than Family Fun Center is currently doing. Games such as skee-ball, basketball, and the air shooting gallery all count as ticket games, although they are fun games by their own merit and many people play them without caring about the tickets. It was a shame that they simply don't give tickets for those games, as the tickets are stored electronically and this wouldn't be difficult to do.

That being said, with two floors of games, there's still plenty to play. The top floor hosts the more intense and violent games and most of them worked well, albeit a few of the guns weren't calibrated correctly.

There was hardly anyone here as I came on a Wednesday afternoon and I wasn't sure if I was able to do go-carts or the zipline or anything like that, but the miniature golf was available and I played the course. The course was fantastic, the best one I know of in the area. One hole is inside of a cave and another has a false "shortcut hole" by a large model castle. The environment of the course is great with model houses and fountains. I recommend going on Wednesday as attractions drop from around $8 each to $3 each, and it wasn't very busy.

The food is what you'd expect from a place like this. It was okay, but since I had such a good deal on the pizza, I added pepperoni for a whopping $3, and they only put about 20-25 slices on it. I'd advise to stay with the standard cheese on that. Beverages are self serve and an anamatronic Bullwinkle and Gang pop out from behind a curtain to sing occasionally. I saw a room nearby which I assume was for an older crowd as South Park was playing instead, but it was also dark and empty and I'm not entirely sure what it's for.

Overall, I highly recommend this place, but the cost can quickly escalate if you don't go with a deal.

“Good family atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

Stopped here while visiting with family. Our ages ranged from 3-69. We purchased 2 rounds of golf.
The course was satisfactory in challenges and variety. One of our family members has bad knees, but found adequate seating/resting areas along the course.
The golf area was clean and well maintained. Landscaping and water features were attractive.
Public bathrooms were indoors, upstairs. An elevator was available. The bathroom was clean.
Plenty of benches and tables available outside.
All activities were operating and busy.
Bumper boat participants were wet afterwards. Good for a warm day. Bring a towel or change of clothing.
Location next to interstate was convenient but noisy.
Prices were a bit high, but in line with this type of attraction. If you do multiple activities with a family, plan on spending a lot!
Plan on a full day or 6 hours if you do all activities.
Parking was sufficient and accessible for an oversized pu.
In all, this is a good attraction.
