Took my daughter here last week and it was AWFUL! The whole place smelled like feet and the ride attendants acted as if they hated life. Not one of them smiled or acknowledged the children or adults. The rides were dirty and run down. Would not reccomend this place to anyone. Save your money and just go to Peter Piper.

The prices here are horrendous! Entry fee is 6.99 for a 7 yr old and that does not even include the /rides. Since you can't send your kid in alone you will end up paying 9.99 just to get in weather you plan on eating or not. No package deals offered, nothing to do for toddlers. RUDE STAFF, dirty bathrooms and really just a waste of lots of money. There are several other entertainment places for children. I suggest going anywhere else instead. Unless you have 100 or so bucks to throw away. (2 adults and two 7 year olds...surprised they don't charge for infants)

This is a terrible business. The lines took 20-30 mins to get through and the rides were about 30 seconds long. Most of the games in the arcade were 75 cents-2.50, and many of them were broken. The ticket machine miscounted the tickets afterward and when we told the employee, his response was "the sensor is broken then". The bathrooms were disgusting, the food was gross, the employees were bored and rude. In the mini golf course, the bricks on the ground were broken. Two of my kids fell into the rocks because of it while playing. I strongly urge you spend your money elsewhere if looking for a fun day with the kids.

extremely disappointed ! We have 5 children and today I brought my 3 and 4 year old as their surprise for dressing themselves and brushing their teeth every morning and night. I bought my passes on line for 12.99 all ages all rides except bowling . when we got there we ate very poor food that obviously had been sitting. There was only 1 person maintaining all stations! we sat in the kid movie section and had to wait half our meal before someone would push play !Next the rides ! we get to the cars and I was told I didn't need a card to take my son turned out I did so I had to go back to the desk and there they told me that the cars were the only one I would need a card for ( they forgot about that one ) then I stood in line again two more rounds and got on the cars... After cars they went on the frog and train and marigoaround. next was the little roller coaster that only goes in a small circle forward then backward and for the first time in all the times I have taken my kids they wouldn't let my son go with me or alone ! ! ! ! ! THE WHOLE PLACE IS RAN BY 15 YEAR OLDS !!! Clueless and very inconsistent ! !I spent almost 60 bucks on a crappy buffet and three baby rides I left with my 3 and 4 year old crying and there little feelings hurt because someone decided today they were going to play manager and left me to explain why he could go on it last week and every time before

I went to Amazing Jake's with my children over this past weekend because I have heard so much about them. I was extremely letdown by the venue's uncleanliness, the staff's overall boredom & many of the rides or attractions inside that were not working or staff could/would not operate. My kids left wondering what everyone else had encountered that we had not. Even more, as a new laser tag fan, only FOUR of their laser tag packs were working, therefore the line to play was atrocious & the staff annoyed. I will stick to what I know from now on. I would not visit Jake's again.

In the mood for fun out of the heat? Up for family quality time? Want to challenge your buddies to a Lazer Tag match? Impressing your girlfriend with your bowling curve? Even shoot pool and have a couple of drinks? Well, Amazing Jake's gives you all that... but be ready to pay for all the fun and then some. Hot food selection is on the limited side for variety; it is a bit of a headache finding plates since there are only two or three spots along the entire buffet line. Desserts aren't many either. Lots of pizza though. However, the food is decent quality in taste. They do have a good number of ambiences to choose from (Sports Bar, Family tables with movies for the kids, etc.). Although located in a rather 'safe' neighborhood, the lack of security staff isn't good if a young one decides to skip you. The staff I have to say is very friendly, but for the prices they charge just to get in ($22/$19/$11), however it includes the buffet and drinks plus 20 points for ticket games, you will quickly find that you need much more than that to really enjoy the games, even more so for the rides and Bowling and Mini Golf isn't included! The place gets crowded on summer weekends, so keeping the areas clean is their nightmare... and some times yours too! They are approaching fast to a renovation and refreshing of their games and rides. All in all, Amazing Jake's is an over-priced yet really fun place for the whole family... two or three times a year or for BDays.

Amazing Jakes has a ton of arcades, and ticket games. It is a great place to keep the kids busy for hours. The food is decent, I wouldn't call it great, but it's edible and average. Buffet style with long lines on occasion. I would call it an upper scale Peter Piper Pizza, or Chuck e Cheese. Great for parties, fun for kids.

Amazing Jakes is a fun place, but it is pricey. The wait times for some of the rides, especially the go-carts, are really, really long! You can use up all your "unlimited rides" time just waiting to get on one or two rides. The food is plentiful, and the quality is pretty good. The arcade games tend to be for the older crowd, not much for the younger ones.

This is a great place for the summer, tons to do and all in air conditioning. The only problem is that it can be pretty expensive. Look for coupons or family days.

We took our college students for a staff party and they really liked it there. It is expensive. At first you think it is a good deal, but then there are extra charges. We spent most of our time bowling and that wasn't even included.

We live about 40 minutes from Amazing Jake's. We went there this past weekend. Jake's is big and spread out and not a great place if you have young children. Not worth the drive in my opinion.

At $21.99 per adult, $18.99 for our oldest god daughter and $10.99 for our youngest this place was very costly. That total of $51.97 did include our meals and drinks but we had to purchase the Fun card and then additional points for all the rides and games as well. It's a fun place for kids though, being a complete sensory overload with all the games and rides they can imagine. It was nice that they had a separate area for adults to eat and drink if they so choose and the kids eating area was ok. It was on the dirty side and we had to weave our way through masses of dirty tables to find a clean one. Overall it was a pretty ok experience but just like the state fair, it's not something I will be doing on a regular basis because the prices are simply outrageous for what you get.
