While there is an abundance of activity choices, there is no way you can enjoy more than 3 or 4 activities due to the lines. Because the activities appeal to teens and adults there are huge groups of teens (and adults) that overwhelm the activities and run over little ones. The arcade games take 20-40 credits, so they came up with a nickel arcade that is across the parking lot that takes 5-10 credits. Keep in mind across 2 parking lots and a street, kids are running everywhere. I don't know how no one has been hurt, far too many parents allow their kids to run about unsupervised. The nickel arcade is downstairs and so full of people, I feared a disaster. Only a narrow 2 flight staircase to get outside. We didn't even eat there, $2.50 for a small soda and all food appeared to be prepared in a microwave. The miniature golf course looked very nice, but would have taken several hours based on the large groups we saw waiting at each hole. We thought we were ready to move on from Chuck E Cheese and ITZ, but maybe they are more our speed. We will never go here again.

I have taken my nephews here when they are out on vacation and it was a great break for me and a fun filled day for them. I especially liked seeing them on the rock wall but the bumper boats were also a favorite for me to watch them. They loved lazer tag - I just couldn't watch them as much.

We had gift cards for this place. It can be pricey to get all day passes. If your on a budget spend a couple hours at nickle city. They have free and very cheap games.

Depending on the package/special that you select you can get between 2hrs and a whole day of unlimited play. The packages start as cheap as 16 dollars for 2 hrs of play! I got a summer deal for 3 hrs of play... it was awesome! i went on the bumper boats ( everyone began spraying at each other and was having a blast), a few rounds of go carts, played some mini golf and finally tried out the laser room ( pretty fun cause you feel like a burglar trying to slip pass the laser activated alarms). It's an amazing place to bring children, family, or even for couples that are a bit adventurous! I think a couple hours is really enough time to enjoy all the activities... if you want to play plaint ball or arcade games you pay and extra fee but then it will be worth your time to stay later. Quick note: make sure it's going to be a nice day out because they close down the outdoor activities when it begins to rain! Enjoy =)
