My daughter turned 11 at the beginning of July. We wanted to do something special but, not spend a fortune. We found what we were looking for at iT’Z. I had just as much fun as my child instead of just following her around to make sure she doesn’t break anything or have problems playing the game. The games are more than an inch off the floor (I’m looking at you C.e.C. skee ball) which made my back happier at the end of the day. There are games for almost every age group and interest.
One of the best things about iT’Z was the unlimited buffet. Everyone that walks through the front doors has to buy the buffet. You can purchase the buffet on its own or as a package with games and other activities. As long as you are in the building, you can eat as much as you want. We had lunch, played for hours and had dinner before we went home. There is a surprising selection of food here. There are several kinds of pizzas, pastas, “happy kid” food (chicken nuggets, hot dogs, corn dogs), a large salad bar and multiple choices for desserts. This is by no means fine dining but, it makes the kids happy and it serves the purposes of letting you play for longer.
Once you figure out what you want to eat (at least, on your first plate), then you get to pick where you want to sit. iT’Z has FOUR different rooms to choose from. You can let your kids pick and go with the Toonz room where cartoons are on all day or the Drive-In room where a kid movie is playing. Or, you could choose The Hollywood Room, where they are showing a grown-up friendly movie, or the Game Room showing sports news and big games.
My group consisted of my child, my boyfriend and myself. My boyfriend and I bought the buffet only because we didn’t think we were going to do anything but follow the kid around like we’ve done in the past. Boy, were we wrong. We should have bought three of the $28.99 packages which include: Unlimited buffet, unlimited video games, unlimited attractions, a game of bowling and a $5 fun card worth 20 points. iT’Z has two kinds of video games, unlimited and points. The majority of the games are in the unlimited category but any game that isn’t requires points and give you credits (like tickets at Chuck E. Cheese) for their prize shop.
The unlimited attractions include: mini bowling (my favorite), a laser maze, Atomic Rush, a rock wall, bumper cars and a TWO-story laser tag arena. Mini bowling was so much fun my boyfriend and I ended up buying a $7 pass that got us unlimited access to the attractions. The lane is half the length of a regular lane, the pins are half the size and the ball fits in the palm of your hands. Bumper cars were also a lot of fun. The room was small and only four people can go at a time but, that works out well. You aren’t wasting half your time just driving to hit someone.
I could go on about this place, and my experience, forever. You should just check it out yourself. There are several different priced packages to fit any family. iT’Z can handle your next birthday party, corporate event, school field trip or church social and it will be awesome! Don’t forget to check out their prize room. I’ve never seen an arcade with prizes as neat as what was offered here.
