Came here for a birthday party. Kids did laser tag and putt putt. They enjoyed it. Looks like a fun place for adults to enjoy as well.

Ticket machines always going xown...and staff are over-tasked and can'tfix machines... Could be a lot better....but still enjoyable...FYI yhey only...More

Brought out of town nephews (ages 5 & 8) & we had a blast! Got an all day pass on a week day & pretty much had the place to ourselves. So much variety that the kids never got bored. Fun for the adults too.

What an awesome birthday party!! My son had his 11th birthday there today. They had a blast! We did go karts and laser tag. MacKenzie was our party planner. She was very knowledgeable, accommodating, friendly and sweet, we just loved her! Will go back again!

Youth must be 8 years old and 48" tall. Youth and adult karts are not on the track at the same time for safety. Adults do not need a driver's license, but must be 16 years old with proof of age
