    Anybody been to Recess Go Bananas?

    My sister and brother in law are coming down Saturday with their 4 boys. She was looking for something to do inside. Has anybody ever been? The website makes it look like a newer version of
    Chuck E Cheese.

    Exclamation Re: Anybody been to Recess Go Bananas?

    I've been to the one in Ankeny. It doesn't have video games like Chuck E Cheese does. Instead it has stuff like a little train, inflatables and small bumper cars, etc.....My kids are 5 and 6 and they attend birthday parties there and seem to have fun. It seems to me though like the rides/games are more for the 0 - 5 year old segment rather than 5+ but I could be wrong.

    Another place to consider is the Playground out by Tone Spices, Outback, Chips off the interstate in Ankeny. They have all inflatables inside and serve Godfathers pizza. Playground and Recess are about equal in my kid's eyes.....

    Another place to consider if you want to drive down to Grand Ave, close to Valley Lanes and Val Air is Tokens Family Fun, see link below. Just like chuck e cheese but also has laser tag and indoor miniture golf. My opinion is they could clean up the place a bit, make it look nicer, but my kids still had a lot of fun.

    I guess the big problem is finding something that will appeal to a 12 year old and 6 year old w/ one other inbetween and another to young to care.

    I thought about that. They LOVE ISU. They're all members of the Lil Cyclone Club.

    I'm taking my two cousins to their first Cyclone game Saturday. They both just moved to Iowa, one from Kansas (9) and the other from Florida (16).

    What about In Play? Is that very kid friendly?

    We go to InPlay all the time and my 5 and 6 year old love it. I love it too. I forgot about that place. I'd recommend taking them to InPlay. That would be fun for everyone, kids through adults. Good food too, not just greasy pizza
