This place is great for kids. There is a large buffet with a wide selection of food. The food is rather cafeteria like and tastes cheap. There are several different themed rooms for seating. There is a arcade, large play area, and a few amusement style rides.

We have gone to the Amazing Pizza Machine for my son's birthday this year and last year. We have had a blast both times. I didn't book an actual party, just used a portion of the dining room for our family celebration including presents. The buffet is not the best in the world, but has lots of variety to please...

This is our 3rd visit in about 5 years (we live out of town). We really enjoy the games and rides, but the food tastes like it is from a can, box, or frozen. They do offer a good salad and potato bar. Desserts were yummy. All-in-all it's a fun play to take the kids. We'd go back.

We were pleasantly surprised with this attraction. We were visiting Omaha when the temperature was above 100 degrees. The heat made us look for something indoor to do. We needed lunch and we thought this place would keep the kids busy for awhile. Well the price was right, I think is was just over 10.00 for lunch, and a game... More

Hi! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and experience. You are right, we are a popular destination for all-indoor fun...especially when the heat index kicks a Nebraska summer above 100F! Sounds like you joined us for Wacky Wednesday where rides, video games, ticket games, and prize games are half price when you play using PlayPoints. That is a very popular value... More

For the venue the food is decent. You don't go FOR the food but it is included. My husband and son come here about once a month and they literally spend all day here. They love it. Go you won't be disappointed
