Families low on fun reserves can refuel all day at the iT'Z unlimited Italian buffet, where diners are the architects of their own feast, designing plate-top ziggurats from salads, pasta, nachos, baked potatoes, and pizza (an $8.99 value). Unlimited fountain beverages are also included (a $1.99 value). Meals can be consumed in any one of the four themed dining rooms. A toddler area is available for children under three, and parents can let older kids spread their virtual wings while they take advantage of the free WiFi.
In 2010, iT'Z Family Food & Fun was chosen as one of the 11 best places for children’s birthday parties by KHOU viewers. More than 8,200 Facebookers are fans of the venue, and CityVoters award it the 2010 Best Family Entertainment title and an average of five stars.
It wouldn’t be hard to spend an entire day at iT'Z —not only is there an arcade packed with more than 150 games and attractions such as a laser maze, the monkey jump ride, bumper cars, 12 lanes of bowling, and a rock wall, but you can consistently refuel at an all-you-can-eat buffet with pizza, salad, and pasta. In group events, each guest is set up to enjoy the buffet and receives credits towards the rides and games. Kids' birthday parties have extras such as a table reservation, dedicated host, and extra tickets for the birthday child. There are four distinct party rooms and they cater to all ages—the neon-tinged Toon’z diner has an animation theme, while the elegant Hollywood room is lit softly by wrought-iron chandeliers.
