The family is the basic unit of society—yet, statistically, family members are the very people most likely to steal the extra Arch Deluxe you've been saving for all these years. Solidify family alliances and suss out enemies with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a day of unlimited rides, buffet, and beverages, as well as one hour of video game play for one person (up to a $104 value), at iT'Z Family Food & Fun, located on San Mateo Boulevard in the Northeastern quadrant. This Groupon expires three months from today’s date. The value of the unlimited-ride pass is estimated at $84, based on ride prices ranging from $2–$3.50.
iT'Z Family Food & Fun offers a world of excitement for the whole family, with an arsenal of arcade games, appetite-pleasers, and other activities. An unlimited-ride pass gives you access to the many belly-flipping indoor amusements at iT'Z, such as 10-pin bowling and the road-rage-inducing bumper cars (must be at least 44” tall to ride). Customers recovering from recent pixel-reduction surgery can ease the transition with iT'Z’s mind-moggling array of video games, such as the veggie-friendly Sega Extreme Hunting Deluxe, which features only tofu-based livestock. Children can use their own feet to lead the next Dance Dance Revolution. Load up your fun card with additional points to extend gameplay well into the next century.
Families low on fun reserves can refuel all day at iT'Z’s unlimited Italian buffet ($7.99 adults, $5.99 children 4–12 years old), where diners are the architects of their own feasts, designing plate-top ziggurats from salads, pasta, nachos, baked potatoes, and pizza. Unlimited fountain beverages are also included (a $1.99 value). Meals can be consumed in any one of four themed dining rooms. A toddler area is available for children under three, and parents can let older kids spread their virtual wings as they take advantage of the free WiFi.
Though the Albuquerque iT'Z Family Food & Fun has not been reviewed much, the Houston iT'Z was chosen as one of the 11 best places for children’s birthday parties by KHOU viewers. More than 6,500 Facebookers are fans of the venue, and CityVoters award it an average of five stars:
