“Nice, but pricey for what you get”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Hinkle is a nice place to spend the afternoon, but it's not something most families can do very often. The all day pass was 26.95 per person, plus tax, regardless of age. That is definitely more economical than paying for individual attractions (if you want to do more than 3 things), IF you try to ride everything or do activities more than once. Still, at nearly a hundred dollars for my family of three, it's not so amazing that I'll likely do it again. Unless you really want to do some kind of laser tag or paintball or something, I'd recommend at least considering Cliffs (local amusement park) if you're looking for one family activity to do. I do have to say (in case company reads this), that the best employee was the guy working the bungee trampoline. He completely got into it and was really encouraging for kids. The rest of the staff were friendly enough, but just kind of standing around doing their summer jobs.

“Lots to Do in the Northeast Heights”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

We played miniature golf in a well-maintained course with our grandchildren. In addition to miniature golf the Fun Center has a number of other activities to do. My only complaint is that one has to walk through the noisy arcade to get to the golf course.

It was our families' first visit to Albuquerque and this was one of our stops to keep our boys occupied while in town. The arcade is outdated and many of the games didn't work properly or just didn't work.

The race cars were really fun for the whole family and the water bumper cars were a lot of fun even though we got wet from head to toe. lol

The bumper cars, which are located in a different building, are your average bumper cars, nothing special but it was good fun. In the same building, was the laser tag which was also a lot of fun and a good workout.

The putt putt golf is one of the most fun courses we've played on. There are two to choose from and we chose the one to the left, the water fall course which had the most shade. We had the most fun with the putt putt followed with the race cars.

The reason I gave this place a Very Good rating was mainly because of all the fun we actually had here. They just need to fix the games and maybe add a few new ones.
