All Fired Up is FANTASTIC! My daughters (6 and 8) make me take them all the time. It's the perfect daddy-daughter outing. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful, which makes this local business all the more enjoyable. Ignore the few negative reviews; I'm quite sure those people have problems everywhere they go.
Great Place Brandy was WONDERFUL – Me and My Fiance went to All Fired Up tonight! We saw this place and we both thought it would be fun to go there! We were greeted by Brandy! She told us to pick out anything that we wanted to paint and she would explain the rest! We got our items and we headed toward the paints. Brandy was awesome in explaining everything and showing us all of the paints, brushes, creations and everything else. We started our paintings and i struck up a convo with brandy. She was friendly,funny and wonderful all together! This was my first time there but will not be the last! Would deff recomand this to my friends and awesome events for anyone who is looking to relax and get creative!!! Thanks again All Fired Up!!!
employees ruined our experience – I went the other day and this is a great idea in theory and could be a fun experience if the employees didn't seem to hate their jobs so much. They only explained the costs to us and then the paint colors. Did not tell us about supplies (water, sponges, more brushes, paper towels, etc...) which I didn't even know they had until I checked out. They should just make a rule of no children because they obviously hate having them there. They barked at our kids like drill sergeants. I would prefer if they let ME know that my kids shouldn't touch anything and I will make sure that happens, don't discipline my kid- especially when they have done nothing wrong. The only people there were other people who had kids and an employee told a woman with a baby to walk the baby around if she started crying and another employee told another child to sit down because it was "too dangerous". Listen, we are not at a five star restaurant, we aren't in a museum, we are not in church. We are in a silly pottery place where people come to have fun. When I checked out, the woman did not even look up at me, let alone thank me. She simply barked out my charge and told me when to pick it up. I brought the brushes hat we had used up to the counter and I asked what I should do with them and she snidely said, "Well, you were supposed to leave them at the table, but I guess I will take them." Oh, I'm sorry!! Maybe I didn't know that because you didn't tell me that and by the way, you are welcome for the fact that I cleaned up my area for you. I will never take my kid back there and I will tell everyone I know about their customer service. I don't think it matters to the owner because it seems as if several people have had the same experience or worse and nothing has been done. There are other places to go have fun with little ones- this is Orlando. And you could do this at home for less money and no hassle.
I HEART AFU! – I love painting pottery at All Fired Up! The staff there is always happy to see me, and they make painting incredibly fun. I wouldn't paint pottery anywhere else in town because this place is like home to me. Thank you, All Fired Up for so many lovely memories. : )
Go somewhere else – Girls that work there are rude and really don't seem to want your business.
Great place for children's birthday parties – I attended a child's birthday party at All Fired Up yesterday afternoon and really enjoyed it! The party hostess was great with the kids and was very helpful and informative. They offer a lot of pieces to choose from and have a wide variety of paints and stencils. Definitely plan to go back!
RUDE MANAGER! – I would give All Fired Up a zero rating if I could.
Last week, my boyfriend and I (both middle aged adults) traveled 70 miles to All Fired up. On arrival at 10.35pm, after standing un-greeted in the main area for a few minutes, we were told by a rude lady that we were too late and, even though they close at midnight, all painting is stopped 1.5 hours prior to closing.
We explained we had driven 70 miles and if we promised to paint quickly and select a small item could we please start, seeing as we had only missed the deadline by 5 minutes, 2 of which were caused by their inability to greet us when we arrived.
The lady was so rude it was incredible. She stated she's been the manager for 5 years and this was her rule. We could come back again, or just not bother.
I will never frequent an establishment where I am spoken to as insultingly as this. The sneer on her face and superior attitude was uncalled for. Interestingly, I see other people have written reviews on the rude manager already.
I fail to see how she stays in business treating people like this.
SIMPLY THE BEST!!! – My husband and I love going to All Fired Up... it is such a wonderful experience every time we go there. It is a great way for him and I to spend time together while doing something we both enjoy (however, I must admit it wasn't easy to get him there, but now he is the one saying everyday "I want to go to All Fired Up").
The staff at AFU are wonderful and they are more than willing to always help you and to reassure that "it isn't messed up", lol. I read above of a negative commentsabout the manager and just wanted to say that we have never experienced or seen anything like that. She is fabulous and as a manager she must in force the rules. I don't know how on earth anyone could or would want to rush through their painting in less than hour and a half. Bottom line is that All Fired Up is simply AMAZING and if people complain that the staff follows the stores policy, well then..... enough said.
Everyone should go and let there creativity run wild, I must admit it isn't easy sometimes.... I have made birthday plates for all of the children in my family and they have loved them.
I have nothing but GREAT things to say about All Fired Up, we just LOVE it....
YOU MUST GO and HURRY UP and get there..... Highly recommend :) We LOVE AFU
A Great Time with Friends – AFU is such a wonderful place with a warm, inviting atmosphere that allows for creativity and fun. I go about once a month with my sister and we always have the greatest time. We are always greeted and Cyn is always there with pleasant conversation and a warm smile.
Having a place like this with great prices gives me a chance to get my creative energy out without having to break the bank and I am always surprised by how the pieces look once they are glazed and fired. I always look forward to going to AFU and I am never disappointed when I do. I HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone looking for something new and fun to do!
