Surprisingly cool venue for birthday parties ages eight and up. The laser tag arena is multi-level, with fog and strobe special effects that make for a very immersive experience. There's also a room where you have to avoid lasers like in Mission Impossible, an arcade, and lots of themed rooms for parties. The staff is pleasant and hard working. We came here for a birthday party and left thinking about hosting one here ourselves.

A good place to take children on a play date. Groups tend to get a discount per child. The arcade is not as big as Chuck-E-Cheese's, but far better in cleanness and less crowded. By the time the children wait for their turn to go into the laser tag journey, they can spend it at the arcade. The instructors who monitor and deliver the orientation session prior to the laser tag session, are polite, patient and explain the game in detail. For those who wish to throw a birthday party for a child, you can book a room ahead of time. I like this place because they allow you to bring your own food and cake. Yet, if you want them to cater for everything, you need to call ahead of time and arrange the party depending on the number of your party.

Held a birthday party for seven year old. Very helpful. Kids all had fun playing laser tag and arcade games.

I like that the party rooms are off to the side where people can socialize and come out to the concession stand to ask questions or for help with the party. And the laser tag section is separate behind a wall that keeps the noise for screaming kids to a minimum from customers that are checking in or having pizza or playing video games in the front common area. I like the setup inside. My only issue if that it's a little confusing trying to find the entrance to get to the building. The entrance is a hidden drive off the main street past a gas station. Other than that, it's a great place to take the kids and for kids' parties.

So much fun! Great for b-day parties for kids. The equipment works great, no issues there. Setting is very well designed, lots of places to hide.
