Great fun for the whole family and all in one place. Bowling, pool, arcades and live bands on Saturdays to name a few! The ownership and staff know you by name and treat you like their best friend. Lanes are friendly, roomy and bright though extra oily at times for tournaments, but still friendly nonetheless. Brewsters serves up drink specials, live music and an awesome Eagles half-time buffet! We love it here and won't change a thing!

Reviewed By Ginger DiGalbo K - Mount Laurel, New Jersey

I have done everything here - from attending large picnics. To group sports days for adults. Lunch outside, Festivals, and lots of fun with granddaughter from the little kiddie section to the bigger kids section over the years. Riding bikes around paths and sailing little batter boats... Mt. LAurel does have a gem in this park.

Took the family there recently and only skimmed the reviews on Tripadvisor and for the most part they were positive so I spent the money and took the fam. It was largely a disappointment, but still a positive experience so I'm giving it 2 stars. What surprised me the most is that after we returned, I was troubled by certain parts of the experience and lo and behold, those were exactly the points made by reviewer after reviewer [those who'd left negative reviews] and these must have all been ignored. That is unforgivable.
Let's start with the good:
1 - The park is clean
2 - The staff were all friendly and generally upbeat
3 - Parking was easy and access to the park was simple
4 - The concept is cool - kids love construction vehicles and this gave them an opportunity unlike any other
5 - I thought the selection of attractions was rather decent.

The cons:
1 - It was a very hot day and there is NO shade anywhere. This is inexcusable especially because it's been pointed out many times already.
2 - The rides operate at a snail's pace. There was a large crowd there but even what appeared like a small line of 15 people could easily take 30 minutes until one got on the ride.
3 - The workers all work at a snail's pace. They literally all moved at half-speed. It was as if they had never heard of the concept of working quickly and efficiently. A simple ride like the ground shuttle which should be 1-2 minutes of loading and unloading can easily take between 5-10 minutes and trust me, safety is not the reason. It's because EVERY SINGLE seat belt has to be manually opened by the operator. That's bush league. Most parks that charge this kind of money have automatic seat belts, not these.
There are many examples of this sort of foot dragging that we experienced.
Let's just say that although we were there 5 hours, we only actually got onto 5 rides and we didn't take a lunch break. At $30 apiece, that's not acceptable.
4 - They make lots of speeches and feature signs about "no place-holding," but they do nothing to enforce it.
5 - They don't allow outside food or drink into the park, but they charge $3.95 for a drink. That's unfair. $2.00 is plenty and still leaves over room for plenty of profit. This felt like they were digging alright - gold-digging - and it didn't feel right. Don't charge $30 a ticket and then rape us for a drink.

As I said earlier, nothing I've written hasn't already been written before. It's all in the negative reviews that were left earlier. If anything, I've been kinder because I included the positive aspects of our visit, but it's hard to say it was a thrilling or great trip.
We will not be returning - the combination of high price, no shade, slow rides, slow service, and expensive snacks, make this a poor choice of venue for a family.

Amazing Escape Room

Reviewed By Yumeeemama D

Customer service was AMAZING BEFORE we got to the brick and mortar building. When we got there, there was no one to greet us and people standing around everywhere. They have a sample wall which allows practice for the various locks but multiple samples were broken, or missing pieces.
I only knew about signing in because I heard someone else mention that they already signed in. The associates were great but they were running around trying to do multiple things. There REALLY needs to be a host or hostess for when people come in. We had never been there before so a brief overview of how this works would have been nice.
Once we were in the room, We were with a group who must do these for a living and they just started going when the door opened. They didn't communicate with us until I shared a clue I had found and not them. They were overbearing and didn't even care that we were in the room. Perhaps a brief introduction and an overview from the room master could have prepared ALL of us to work together.
This all said, I think this is a clever game and would like to return as long as no one else is in the room, since this was our experience. I felt bad for my daughter who was so excited to be there and wasn't able to truly participate because the group in there were savages!

Garden State Discovery Museum

Reviewed By Art F - New Jersey

We took our 3 1/2 year old grandson and spent close to two hours watching him totally enjoying himself. He loved running around and exploring the different areas of the museum. His favorite activity was the ambulance- he loved steering the wheel and turning on the siren. Young kids will really enjoy themselves here.

Johnson's Corner Farm

Reviewed By happy_traveler_25254

Younger kids will enjoy visiting Johnson's Corner Farm but be prepared to pay for everything you do there. There is an area for the animals, a play area and a market but the prices are very high. Adults accompanying children must also pay to enter. A day visit for a family of four run about $60-$75 or more if you plan to eat there. You can only feed the animals and not pet them which was disappointing for my granddaughter but the animals were cute. There is a tube you drop food down to feed them. We had a nice time but I don't think I would visit again.

-Probably best for the average ages of 8-10
-It's crazy loud due to music constantly playing and occasional announcements, so bring earplugs.
-The place is packed with back to back birthday parties on the weekend which tend to dominate some of the rides, so be prepared to wait.
-Don't do the expensive $2 coat check. There are lockers throughout that you can use for 50 cents.
-You are hit with the arcade as soon as you walk in and have to walk past ALL the games to get to the rides, so prepare your kids.
-Some of the kids working the games are apathetic while others are helpful. Some strangers helped my frustrated kid manage his bumper car when it became stuck while two girls who worked there ignored him.
-I will probably try the water park in the summer, but not go back again this winter.
-Due to the fact that you as a parent/adult have to buy a card or wristband to do anything with your kid, it can be crazy expensive. If you have a child who can do everything on their own and is fine with that, then pricing is competitive.

Reviewed By flipperdipper171 - Medford Lakes, New Jersey

This is one of the greatest community sports and recreation facilities I have ever experienced. Tennis courts, athletic fields, baseball diamonds, a gold course and driving range, any sort of athletic venue you can think of. My grandkids play soccer here often, and the main field with it's artificial turf, great lighting and stands make it a great venue not only for participating, but for watching. I myself play tennis here often, and the courts are first rate, well maintained and well lighted for night play. Plenty of parking, a wonderful playground and restroom facilities make this an outstanding venue.

Moorestown Mall

Reviewed By JustSayNoToSpiritAir - Utah

This is a small property owned by the same company (Preit) that owns the much larger Cherry Hill Mall 10 minutes away. Fewer people and easy parking, and there's a decent selection of mid-range stores. Anchors are Lord & Taylor, Boscov's and Sears. Used to be a Macy's there, not sure what stores will fill that space. Food court is small but with a good selection. The Philly cheesesteak place is good. Regal movie theater has recliners and an RPX screen.
