    Do you like Go Karts, Salads, and Games?

    If so, this is the place for you! I saw this at the corner of 86th and Douglas and just had to stop and check it out because who can resist the incredible combination of Go Karts, Salads, and Games? Oh, and according to the other side of the building they also have a buffet.

    Anyways, the place is called America's Incredible Pizza Co and it looks like it must be a Showbiz/Chuck E. Cheese type place. Not a very big building so I doubt the go kart track will be very big unfortunately. I just thought it was an odd combination of attractions to advertise on the front of the building...

    I know my cousin loves the one in Council Bluffs I think he is around 7 or 8. From what I get is it is just like a more up to date Chuck E Cheese with better games. Not sure about the Karts but I think some may have putt putt and bowling.

    Sorry, I think I mixed it up with the Amazing Pizza Machine in Omaha, but they used to live in St. Louis so I am sure I got them mixed up. They seem pretty similar however.

    Salads? Talk about random, why would you put salads on the sign?

    My guess is to convince the moms that it's ok for them to come inside as well, and there is a healthy nutrition option available.

    Or because salads are BAMFs.

    Is this on the SE corner of 86th & Douglas? The old Albertsons grocery store I believe...if so its bigger inside than it looks. We need a Dave & Busters and we get this?

    I was actually excited to see that something was going in that space. I drive past there everyday to get to and from work, I didn't think anybody would ever lease that space. I thought it looked interesting, I'll give it a shot... that is until I'm annoyed by all the youngins running around everywhere...

    Its the old Albertson's right at the corner of 86th and Douglas. The building has been vacant for probably at least 5 years.

    The old Kay's building is still vacant.
