“Fun but pricey”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Everyone was more then nice and helpful and we had a great time. Bowled for an hour, played video games for awhile, and finished the night with mini golf. I wanted to play laser tag but the wait was an hour so we skipped it. Loved that the cards for the arcade could be used and if a game didn't work they gave back the money (and in one case gave me more for the inconvenience) The games were fun and there were multiple ones of most so you didn't have to wait long. When we first walked in we went straight for bowling but there was a wait so we sat down to eat. We got our lane as the food came out and they just moved us over to the table at the lanes. That table wasn't big enough for our plates and the sitting wasn't enough but there was more further back and we made do. Everything was a bit expensive but then again we are in Austin so it's almost normal. Mini golf was a black light one and really fun, no complaints. Over all we had a great time.
