“Exploitive”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

The business is on par I am sure with most in the country. The games are well kept, the atmosphere is as expected. The host wasn't hosting we had to wait a good 2-3 minutes before someone noticed we were even there to come stamp us in. The food wasn't spectacular but doable. Overall the prices are rather high for the value. I believe it is exploitive because going to Chucky Cheese is an immediate response in asking kids where they would like to go. And if you do better expect to shell out the cash. The games are a quarter a shot and the tickets from games tend to be on 1 or 2 due to the return per game and the difficulty of the games for the most common age groups that attend. So long story short expect to spend tons of tokens just to get tickets and they end up getting your child a free pencil and a plastic spider ring.

We went here strictly for our kids and we had a cheap coupon from their wesite. For $18.99 we got a large pizza, 4 drinks and 40 tokens. The games and rides all take one token, so our kids were occupied for a couple hours. The pizza is just barely a step above frozen boxed pizza.
