This is a good place to go for pizza and fun. It is open in all kinds of weather and there are a lot of fun games for the kids. I would recommend for kids and families 3-15, though some older kids will find a few games to play too.
The little bowling alley is fun for small kids. The go carts are OK, but not as fun as a bigger track.
Do plan to spend some money here. Our family of 4 was about $75 for food and games...but you can get by for less if you don't do the rides.

Thank you for your kind words! We work diligently every day to provide a fun, family-friendly experience every day and we're thrilled you enjoyed your visit. We do try to provide value-priced options for off peak times including daily specials detailed on our website, and one of those might help match age and interest to daily deals. New games will be arriving soon and we have some additional laser tag and buffet menu news coming later this summer. Thanks again!

Even trying to decide what "card" to buy is a headache. Trying to tell a 2-3 year old you can't play that because you didn't buy the deluxe card or whatever their terrible system is. Food is absolutely disgusting, if this truly is owned by Val's I would close the doors for this food, geez. Whatever happened to quarters, seriously the system needs a little polishing....

The arcade part was fun. Unlimited use of games and rides for 90 minutes was $30. go karts were slow and for little kids. Bumper cars were pretty decent. Laser tag is a whole different cost so we couldnt even do that. Bowling was actually the best part. The prize selection wasnt good, the service was horrible (immature teenagers!) and the buffet was NOT good at all. I would try a different place while in town.

The Amazing Pizza Machine ranks somewhere in between Chuck E. Cheese and Dave and Buster's. The games and rides are as expensive as you'd expect and the prizes are the same ones you'll find anywhere else. The food is the thing that drops my rating. The APM was opened by some of the owners of Valentino's and any fan of Val's will recognize many of the recipes on the buffet at APM. Unfortunately, the quality and care that goes into the food on the Val's buffets does not transfer over to APM. You are required to purchase a buffet for each person that is entering the game area, which is fine, except for the mediocre food. Buffet prices are reasonable.
