“Pizza Machine”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2013

Food is average. Kids love the games and activities. Tickets are kind of a pain to redeem but no more than any other place with that system.

“One big drawback....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

The food is awful! Its weird, whether it was pizza or pasta it all had a similar general weird flavor...like it resembled food but wasn't quite real food. The salad bar was the saving grace and it wasn't very good either but at least you can have something whole. The buffet may not be a deal breaker for some, but I feel like I paid to feed my children poison. If we go again, we will just eat ahead of time and skip the buffet and go straight to games.

“You are paying for the fun not the food”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

OK place but the food is horrible. I would think twice about going here if you are at all hungry. They have a lot of games and activities which are fun but places like Dave and Busters are much better.

“Something to do...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 26, 2012

So it's cold out and you have kids and you need something to do in Omaha. One of the first things that will come to my kids minds is the Amazing Pizza Machine.

The Amazing Pizza Machine is owned in part by the co-owners of Omaha favorite Valentino's Pizza. It is a pizza buffet with a different non-pizza featured item each day. But the best part is not the food, it is the arcade, bumper cars, go-karts, and new lazer tag.

The food is pretty bland and kind of disappointment considering who owns it. It is cut in mini slices and just seems to fake and not fresh. The salad bar is ok and the pasta is just as bland as the pizza. It is something to eat though and you can get some good combos for arcade time with the buffet so it is more or less recommended. The kids dont really complain because hey, pizza is pizza to them.

The arcade is pretty big with many ticket games. The payouts are pretty low but after all, it is hard to find an arcade that does have a good payout. There are many modern games like Connect Four, Wheel of Fortune, Deal or No Deal, etc. There is also a play place for the wee ones with tunnels and slides so they can be pretty active as well.

There are a few rides such a s the crazy coaster which is a carnival ride that just just spins you forward and back and can make you a bit queasy. There is also bumper cars, mini bowling (it breaks alot so be forewarned), incredibly slow go-karts, and a pretty sad lazer tag.

As stated, this is a great place to take kids aged 3-13ish but for the teens and adults, it can be a drag and not exactly the tastiest spot in town. I would recommend more towards dave and busters for the older crowd.
