“Nice family place to go”
Reviewed January 24, 2013 via mobile

I used my iPhone map and searched for 'Asheville's Fun Depot'--do not do this. It takes you to 7 Roberts Street (should be Roberts Road), by old warehouses and a river. To make it easy, it is off exit 51 on I-40.
There are soda machines, but if you buy a drink from the cafe, you get free refills for your entire visit.
The indoor mini golf is great on a cold winter day and the koi are nice to watch while you play.

“Great place to kill some time”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

The packaged prices for rides, mini gold, and games aren't too bad. The place is a little out dated and cheesy but it was certainly worth a visit for my wife and myself. One thing that I loved about this place is that it seems the current or previous owners wanted to add a some Christian-based themes everywhere. Each hole on mini-golf has a little scripture on it. The only thing I really didn't like was that a bunch of high school aged kids were employed here and they felt more compelled to goof around and talk to each other than to actually pay attention to customers.

“Children and Youth Love It”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This is a good place for birthday celebrations. There are party rooms of various sizes where the facility will serve food for the party. After the celebration, the participants can visit the arcade like areas of the Depot.

“Great Place to bring in the New Year with family”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

I took the kids here for New Years Eve. They had a set price for the nigth and this kids where able to play laser tag, climb the rock wall, ride the bummer cars and just have a blast. At midnight they dropped ballons - it was noisy so might not be good for real young kids my kids 9 and 7 loved it.

“Horrible Experience”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

This was possibly the worst experience of my life. The workers were extremely rude, not to mention racist as well. They do not do their jobs adequately. Manager is also useless and not helpful at all. The place is overpriced with half of the games not working. They do not enforce the rules that they set in place, especially on the go-karts outside, leading to injuries because of excessive bumping. Overall, one of the worst places to go. Save your money and your physical health and go somewhere else.
