Dirty place and broken toys. Adults pay admission fee. And lots more... 8/25/2008

I had to pay $29 for two toddlers to play for 1.5 hour, because I also brought a babysitter with me. I asked the owner if he's sure that I have to pay for the babysitter, he said yes, I said that I don't think it's fair, he replied ""Ok"" and walked away for me. Last time my friend invited my girls to her son's birthday, there were only 4 kids total - her so, my girls and another girl. My friend didn't want to order a party, just paid admission fee for everybody. We called them in advance to make sure that cafe is closed and we can bring our own food. When kids finished playing we went to the cafe and pulled out sandwiches, juices, paper plates with Thomas (boy's favorite character) and I brought a tiny cake decorated with Thomas theme as well. When the owner saw us, he came and asked to leave, because we didn't buy a birthday package. I begged him to give us a break, that we had no idea, it says that we can bring our own food if cafe is closed etc. He said that we have to wrap it up really quick, like 5 minutes or so. The very first time I met the owner, we tried to find a free parking space, it was pouring and I had all 3 babies in the car. All disabled parking lots were free, but the regular ones all were taken. I decided to park on disabled unload the babies and live them with the nanny inside, than come back and move the car somewhere else. As soon as I parked the owner parked his car on another disabled lot and told me that I can park all the way behind the building. I said that I have 3 babies in the car and it's raining he said that there's a door on the other side too. I drove all the way around and parked there and we used the back door. But when we where ready to leave he didn't let us use this back door, he said that we have to walk all the way around the building, and it was still raining. I've been there for a birthday party as well. You pay lots extra for pizza, chicken nuggets and that's it. There's no entertainment program for kids or anything. more

Not for Birthday Parties!! 1/26/2008

I just had my daughter's 3rd birthday party at Playwise Kids today (1/26/08) and it was horrible. Their website states that they provide a ""party hero"" to guide the children through the various activities, but, unfortunately, our party hero was miserable. She obviously did not want to be there and it was clear that she did not like being with the children. She hardly engaged the children at all and there were times when we didn't even know where she was. There was no structure or organization to the activities, so for most of the party the parents and other adult guests ended up chasing 12 pre-schoolers as they scattered in various directions throughout the facility. Pros: Variety of activities Cons: Horrible service more
