This place is GREAT or should I say AMAZING! I think people expect way too much today to give this place anything but a FABULOUS review! If JAKE can't please you then noone can!
For starters one can keep going back to the buffet ALL DAY LONG and have freshly baked foods, salads with all fresh veggies (like real mushrooms, bamboo shoots, water chestnuts, etc.)and yummy dressings, homemade potato salad, apple and cherry cobbler, etc. This means feeding your family all day for brunch, lunch, dinner and supper with desserts! Come on...now that's a bargain!
Now as a parent you would want CLEAN bathrooms with HOT water (of course not THAT hot but enough to kill germs). That's so important with all the children running around!!! PLUS hot water means the staff and cooks wash in hot water since it comes on right away. No E-Coli here! Do realize that Hot water costs more to use but is necessary. Any place that caters to children should have it.
The GAMES are so much fun for both adults and kids! There are tons of video and arcade games where you WIN prizes and the PRIZES are COOL and NOT Junk! We won a stuffed Plush Doggie which is quality for a carnival prize! There are carousel rides, tea cup rides, go carts, mini-golf, rock climbing, etc! The place is tremendous and we were there for 8 hours!! Try finding a place to occupy anyone's time for that long for under $20!! A Movie with fake butter popcorn and bottled water costs more!! Then what? Do the MATH parents.
I had a wonderful time there and so did my friends and their children. This place is great for birthdays where the price comes out less.
I recommend JAKE'S! It is AMAZING!!!!! and I'm a picky person, parent and consumer advocate. Anyone that says different is being ridiculous and is taking for granted the good things in life.
