My fiance, myself and our two 15 year boys at a blast! We stayed and played for about 2 hours. We could have stayed longer but were driving home (3 hours away). Can't wait to go back and play some more

Found this great place on accident and so glad we did. Cold and snow spring break but this place brighten our day for sure. Lots to do, never had a wait even on a Saturday! Definitely will go back! Super fun!

Games are pretty old. Probably won't return on our next trip to Erie. Building doesn't have air conditioning but it wasn't uncomfortable.

Fun place for all ages! Plenty of game choices. Only downfall is no AC so it is warm. It's not uncomfortably hot but it is warm.
