“Bring Xanax for the adults”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Our kids enjoyed the arcade at Knuckleheads, but after a few hours I was ready for earplugs and a prescription mind-altering substance. I thought that the arcade games were overpriced and the prizes that kids have to pick from were pretty lousy. We did not get a chance to ride the rides, do the ropes course or bowl, so those activities may have more to offer for many families.

“More to do”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

Visited Knuckleheads spring break 2014 and had a blast, once again. There are many more rides compared to Kalahari, and the kids choose Knuckleheads over Kalahari hands-down! The 4D theater is awesome with the choices and hydrolics. The bumper cars are fun for kids too. The coaster is neat, as well as the Tornado. The ropes course is fun for adults and kids. We get wristbands for the family because there is plenty for adults to ride with kids as well. We stay away from the pillow jump because it poses a risk for kids. If there are a few kids on it, we noticed they bump into each other and hurt each other accidentally but colliding heads. You loose control when airborne and it is not safe for kids. I do not recommend the pillow jump, but everything else is good enough. There is plenty to do for about 4 hours.

“Better than kalahari's game room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014 via mobile

Glad we visited this place. The machines cannot keep up with the demanding traffic of people. But the staff is always willing to help. Thanks to Seth who fixed all the problematic machines! A kids heaven. The restrooms need better maintenance but the game areas are good!visited 2X great time.

“Fun Time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2014

This was our first time to Knuckleheads & we'll be back! Our 5 & 3 year old daughters had hours upon hours of fun here! We purchased the Airheads Wristbands, which included the Ball-o-City, Bounce Pillow & one Ride. They also rode the Go-Karts & they were running a special for children under 5 years to bowl free! We had a fantastic time!

“The kids passed up the games to go bowling”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

We stopped with the kids after eating at buffalo Phil's next door. We came back the next night and the kids decided they wanted to go bowling. Our 3 and 6 year old got to bowl for free, so it was $24 for shoes and two games. A bit pricey if you need to pay $4.50 per game per person and $3 each for shoes. Kids had a lot of fun.
