Great for Kids of all Ages – There really was something for everyone at every age from loud, active & stimulating to the quieter, slower paced toddler room where even the 5 month old could sit up & play with the large floor toys. The food was surprisingly good although the service, while pleasant enough, was nearly nonexistant. The staff was more than flexible in accomodating our birthday party of 2 younger children & 5 adults without the prerequisite 8 child minimum. The only other down side we noticed was that all the tickets in the world seem to amount to a candy bar for most kids (even if they collect tickets all day there's not much to choose from) - let your kids know ahead of time that tokens are for playing games, not neccessarily winning "prizes". The water fountains are a fantastic way to keep little ones occupied & entertained while everyone eats.
too frenetic – Too much! The "floor show" repeated every 3 or 4 minutes. There were at least 6 tvs running on different channels. Our kid was so wound up by the time we left that it took a couple of hours to come him down enough to get him to bed. The kiddie habitrail was cool, especially the sliding board, but we can get most of that at McDonalds where the food is MUCH better.
kids kinda like it – food is not vry good...kids like it. Service is so-so.
Pleasantly Surprised – Some friends of mine from out of town were visiting and they have a 6 year old. I have an 8 year old. We took the children to Bullwinkles. They loved it. There were only 2 games that we saw that were out of order. The rock climbing was very challanging to our children but they did it and were proud of themselves for doing so. My daughter has a birthday coming up and all she kept saying was "Can I have my birthday party here, Please?". We were very pleased with the service and the atmosphere. I intend to visit Bullwinkles many times and have my daughter's birthday party there.
