Very affordable. My kids used to love coming here (10, 4, 3, 1) but.......today we found out they took the two slides away and a huge chunk of the play area; the only reason we come. And I saw the disappointment in my 10, 4, and 3 year old. They still had some fun. But the age that Bonkers is gearing towards will probably max out about 4-5 yrs old max. Hopefully they deliver the changes they’re making. Staff was all really nice and very helpful.

What a fun place for the whole family! We visited for the first time. My immediate concern was cleanliness of a facility like this, but they have a great cleaning system to ensure no major issues.(see attached picture for details). The arcades are wiped down regualarly from what I observed. There are bathrooms on both floors of the place and they were clean as well. Costs: You purchase play cards for the arcades. The games cost anywhere from 2 - 8 tokens. You can purchase a single ticket for about $6 per child and adults were $1.50 (but only if you want to climb too)! Food: They offer pizza (15.99 or less), sandwiches ($3-4), drinks (up to $2.39), and kids meals ($5 +/-). The dessert include cookies, ice cream, and funnel cakes (around $3 -5). There was a quiet room in the upper center, Free wifi, and party rooms, which were small but fun and clean. Atmosphere: It is upbeat and friendly, secure, and the music was kid friendly from radio Disney. I wonder if they have a Christian music night for area churches and family! The toddler play area was not well monitored however, so if you have little ones, watch them closely. I am watching for deals to come back at a later date.

The place can be fun, they need more staff and SOME, not all, friendlier staff. Need more staff during meal hours especially. Staff will do nothing for you or your child (not even a sorry) if a machine doesn't give your tickets. Happened 2 different visits, 2 different staff. Food is good when cooked right, but if they are busy you could wait 45 min or more for an order of cheese sticks. They lost my dad's cheese burger order, waited 45 min... said something to staff (after tryingto get the attention of 2 others 1 who walked passed my brother and I at the recieving counter ignoring us so we had to get back in the order ordering line to talk to the cashier(the only actual nice, friendly and helpful staff) and yeah brother was checking on his order he'd been waiting extra on from the kitchen too. they told us it would be right out, as in a couple minutes... another 30+ min later it came with FREE fries as plus an apology for the wait, but that was it. Also the food court is debit or cash only, no credit cards, shop be prepared for that. Staff can be rude, blatant ignore you. The big kids climbing playground area my nephews loved and even my dad could climb with them. The little kids climb/ play area could be bigger. I suggest going in at non-peak hours if you want to go.

They took out most of the good stuff so that you have to pay to have a good time.
