Planet Fun hosted the state youth bowling tournament. Employees were all very helpful. The kids loved the games and bumper cars after they bowled. Food prices were high, but most bowling alleys are. The facility was very clean and well taken care of. Issues with lanes were handled very quickly. Great place to bowl.

This was our first and LAST visit to Planet fun. My husband and I took our son down to play some games for part of his birthday. Low and behold over half of the games did not work, the staff acted as if it was a bother to ask any questions, we signed up to bowl a game and no... More

I scheduled an event at Planet Fun 3 months prior to the date. This included 27 people for dinner at Starz Grille and 24 bowlers. I was promised to have six lanes together. This is a fun annual event with a group of friends and we include prizes for highest and lowest bowlers. All logistics were confirmed three weeks before... More

We have a ball when we go there. IT is great for couples and families. Always a great time. Sometimes we just go to the bar, or for lunch or dinner. Sometimes the wait staff is slow, but the food and good time overrides that.

I'm going to review this a little differently than the reviewers with kids or those only interested in the game arcade. I'm a bowler and have been the President of one of the many competitive leagues here at Planet Fun for the last 3 years. With the addition of Hall of Fame Bowler Randy Peterson to the staff this place... More

Brought the grandkids on a rainy day. The bowling was ok. Had bumpers automatically come up the kids and plenty of light weight balls. BUT if you want to do anything but bowl you should go somewhere else!!!!! The food service was soon slow. Took forever to get my order taken. I stood in line for over half our first... More

Our recent visit with the grandkids resulted in disappointment. Arcade section is awful, Generally out of date machines at high prices with many not working. My grandkids were frustrated and bored.

We attended a recent bowling tournament at Planet Fun. The lanes are impeccable but we could use more seating at tournaments.My teen son and his friends enjoyed the laser tag and the arcade games afterward. I did notice that the floor is super sticky and the seating needs a good cleaning, but other than that we all had a great... More
