Horrible. Gameworld closed before I could ever use my groupon.
The bowling was fun but after we finished bowling we played their video games and this was a pain. First off we have five kids so the money for the games needs to be split five ways. Because Gameworld uses a debit type card to play the games we needed five cards. You can't get their "deals" split onto different cards. What do the cards have to do with it? If you have a deal that is say for $40 I get $50 worth of play what difference does it make how many cards it is split onto. I STILL SPENT $40! We decided to go with two cards which meant us as parents where running around trying to find the next kid waiting to play a game. NOT FUN! Then to top it off several games would debit the money from the card but the game wouldn't work. They only had one person working the entire place. She was the cashier, making and serving food, getting the bowling games going and ontop of all that was trying to deal with games that were not working for us. After awhile it wasn't worth tracking her down. Don't think we got what we paid for even with a Groupon.
We love the power hour. :)
Kept having problems with the bowling alley.
We had the place to ourselves on a Monday @ 3:30 p.m. which was fine. I had a two yr. old & a 7 yr. old with me and my husband. The only attendant present could not suggest apropriate games for the two yr. old. She was not helpful @ all. My husband sat down @ the eating area no one waited on him. The train ride( red train with old coin dispenser out of the 60's) & the game that you hit the button when the flashing lights are b/w the arches were broken. The photo boothe was the only hit. The virtual roller coaster was too scarey for the toddler. There was no bowling in operation that day. The attendant immediately pointed out my groupon was for games only. I replied I bought two gameworld groupons one for bowling & one for games, but they were identical printed information. She ignored that because bowling was closed that day. Any doubt why I gave the other groupon away? Total waste of time. What was advertised in the groupon was not delivered.
Place was dirty, old, and bowling pins would fall after being placed. Arcade games functioned very poorly. Will not be back.
alot of games didn't work correctly and are very old. Only with a huge discount would I go back. At groupon price it was Fair. I don't think I would ever go there at "regular" prices
From Our Editors
At Gameworld, fun materializes in a variety of forms, from bowling to arcade games modeled after sporty endeavors and amusement park rides. Bowlers launch spheres down regulation-size lanes or the abbreviated alleys of a replica of Highway 66, featuring mini lanes striped with a highway median that cater specifically to toddlers, but can entertain competitors of all ages. After lifting bowling balls, gamers can cool down in the arcade, a haven for a veritable timeline of electronic adversaries from yesteryear's Pac-Man to modern Daytona racecars, as well as air hockey and a small climbing wall. The MaxFlight Simulator reigns supreme among its peers, emulating the jolting twists and turns of a rollercoaster ride without the annoyance of picking bugs off of teeth. Players refuel at Perky's Pizza with crispy slices or entire pies made to order, which can also power kids through bowling birthday parties that include bowling, gaming, and goody bags.
