Main Event is a fantastic family game complex that is great for a birthday party or maybe just a fun time out. Bowling, laser tag and gravity climbing are a few activities kids and adults can enjoy. There's a huge arcade floor to keep everyone busy, Winners Choice to cash in on game victories, a food counter with lots of delicious food and drink choices. Adults can enjoy a cocktail, cold beer and sports on the big screen at a widespread bar. We were there for a kid birthday party and our dedicated host made the frenzied pace workable and enjoyable. Tip these young people well!! They work hard to make sure a great time is had by all and they deserve it! We will definitely be returning at some point.

Drinks were good. Games were good. When understanding the credit system a lot of the games are like 7.5 credits to play. You get a game card from a machine unless you order a meal that includes a game card with it. Some of those deals are crazy good. Like a $33 entree but u get a $30 game card making the food $3. That is a good deal. My girl wanted to stop here on our 3.5 hour trip home from ocmd for her birthday. It was a good decision.

It was fun but a lot of the games took our credit and did not work. The restaurant there has awful to no service at all. The consession station was sub par over priced. Kids were happy, that's what counts. Ice maker didn't work some of the soda choices were just seltzer water. Oh and the dish they serve the ice cream in has a cancer warning ⚠️ on the bottom of the cup. Saving grace is the kids enjoyed themselves. Glad we went when it was 11.99 so it was cheap enough fun for hours. Hope they can do better. I will re-review in summer.

An awesome environment, full of games, great food, and memorable experiences. The management team is very professional. All of the workers make it a really cool place to hang out. It's very kid friendly and there's a great bar with really nice servers. It's the kind of place you want to keep coming back to.

Nice place to have fun... But they have poor management and customer service. The first time here, they just want your money. False advertising and a lot of workers, but just a few are really working. Arcades are not working. They are changing the rules at the customer desk, depending on how you look/dressed. They said the wait time for bowling was 3 hours, but 3 lanes were open. The lazer tag also 4-hour waiting at 10 pm and establishment close at 1:30 am. Asking for wings and fries at the bar, they were not able to tell us how many wings I will get with my order. I was told could be 6 or 8. I asked because it is not stated on the menu. I've never experienced that in any other bar/restaurant. Maybe in the future, if I ever return, hopefully, they have made improvements. Goodluck.

Took my sons and nephews to Main Event on Spring Break. Decent price on Laser Tag $8.50 per person. Not sure why they charge $2 for activation fee on arcade game cards. Could use help in Winners Choice to keep things flowing. Saw employees cleaning up,wiping down tables and checking/maintenance games. Would have liked to seen covid procedures for games such as wiping down occasionally. Overall, had a nice Afternoon and was able to get in and out.

The staff was super great. The bowling was fun as well. The games left alot to be desired. Numerous games were not fully working. Many of the interactive games which cost then others did not all have motion. Also was told that they didn't have the 23 oz glasses and only 16. This was at noon with only like 10 people in the whole place.

I love how many activities they have available for kids of all ages and that includes the adults. They have laser tag. An indoor zipline thing. Pool and bowling and a photobooth. Its a great one stop shop for date night or a kids party. My only caviat they need more staff at the food area as the only thing they seemed to have in stock was soda. Pizza and 2 icee flavors.
