“Las Vegas for Kids.......”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Took our nephew there for a birthday present. Has a buffet that is your basic for kids and grown-ups. We don't have grandchildren so we are not use to this type of entertainment, but our nephew was loving it. I would to if I was a kid. Lots of games and some rides all indoors. Lot of birthday party's going on. If you don't like being around a lot of children this is not for you. Basic price for adult buffet and the children's can include purchase tickets for rides and games of different amounts depending on how much you want to spend for them to play. For our nephew it was a 5 star day.

“Worst. Food. Ever. Unlimted does not mean unlimted @ Pizza Machine!”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

My son attended a birthday party. Him and I had discussed that if this went well and looked good, we would have his birthday party here in June. First off, I was very surprised to learn that if I wanted to stay I had to pay for a buffet. It was AWFUL. Hospital and nursing home food is soooo much better! Everything had nacho cheese in it. Macaronni and cheese with nacho cheese is NOT good. :( The ice cream was also terrible. It tasted like it had gone sour before they put it in the machine. The ham at the salad bar way gray. And the pizza was awful. Best thing there was the soda.

The rides and games were ok. Although he had an 'unlimited' pass, he couldn't only do limited things with it. And the cards would take 3 or 4 swipes to work with each ride/game.

Bottom line, unless they bring in a new food program and start standing behined there 'unlimited' statements, my family will not be going back anytime soon. Or ever.

Thank you for taking the time to share your concerns. We're sorry we couldn't address them on the day of your visit.

You are correct that admission to our facility does require a buffet purchase. While certainly no one is required to eat, most take advantage of this opportunity. We're very sorry that your experience was unsatisfactory. Being owned by restaurateurs with 40+ years of experience we take all comments seriously and will review with our team every comment you shared.

And with regard to party packages, we do have packages with unlimited play and the price for packages varies depending upon what is included as unlimited. One package's unlimited feature is a ride-all-day package. Our Big Time package allows unlimited rides, video games, and ticket games for 90 minutes but excludes token (no way to play with a card) and prize games but for 90 minutes vs a shorter or longer period or all day long. We'll see what we can do to better inform party guests about how those features work so everyone better understands and enjoys their arcade experience.

Being voted Best of Omaha for Birthday Parties and as the #1 Family Entertainment Center only matters to us if all our guests share in that experience. We're sorry we let you down.

We would be happy to discuss further if you wish to better address your experience. Simply call our store at 402-829-1777 and ask for the store manager.

Sincerely and respectfully.
