REVIEWS OF Hijinx Family Entertainment Center IN Arkansas

Bill Bowen

Amazing job of renovating the former Bowling Center. If you have school age kids, sign them up for the free summer bowling and pay a little extra up front for the parent passes. Nice clean place to enjoy family outings. Service was wonderful!

Syed Qutub

Very nice experience. Children's slides are good. We also enjoyed bowling. Young ones liked the small rope course.

Jazmine Swift

Staff was rude and tried to rush us out of the building. Gave rude stares all night staff bumped into us trying to clean for closing when it was a hour until close. Will NEVER come again just because of the horrible customer service.

derrick rhodes

I took my boys there and they had a blast and we will definitely go back

Tyler Gray

Had a blast. I'm afraid I liked it more than my kids did haha

John 20:31 Videos

Prices for food could be a little cheaper. But great arcade and a blast to visit. The taste of the food is great!

Julie Hampton

Bowling and video games that you earn tickets for gift. Has a area too order up some food as well. You can also have birthday parties there

Lee Bates

Its a little high priced but its fun no doubt

Brenda Eason

My grand kids love this place, I even have fun and I'm 53!!! Can't go wrong for family fun.

Ray V

This is a fun boring center with arcade and lasers tag. Unlimited laser tag on the weekends after 10 is always a fun option. It's a fun place to go and take the kids, it's a bit pricey, but whats not when it comes to family entertainment.

Gabe Reyes

Great place to bring the family or friends for everything from bowling to laser tag to a ropes course to the arcade. They also have a small eatery in their with pretty good food. A bit pricey but has plenty of options. Love to come by every now and then for a bowling night with friends and we typically grab a pizza and pitcher of soda.

Nathan Freeman

The team members are very helpful and this is definitely the place to go for family nights, they're cheap and the food is extremely good

Alex Tenorio

Really fun if you have the money for it

John Baker

T'was very good for the kiddos!

suhbrinuh ok?

Lots of great activities to choose from that don't break the bank. They update the arcade games often, and the food is consistently pretty good, if a bit pricey.

Nancy Serpico

Granddaughter birthday party the room wasn't big enough and we had new girl working party things was just off time half kids got there food several min before other , The girl was sweet just not train she needed back up adults had to stand out side room while party was going miss my granddaughter happy birthday song

Cody M

Pretty great place Skyler was working laser tag and was a great worker

Laura Ward

This time I was there for a birthday party which was held in a pod with a time allotment. Staff was nice, the place was clean but very crowded. When they remodeled they should have added many more lanes. We didn't stay to bowl as there was a long waiting list to get a lane. Other than that, we had a good time. We didn't play the games in the arcade area, but what I observed from those who were, they were having a great time.

Amanda Long

My kids and I loved it! Games were fun and the rope course was a blast!

Meagan Smith

Best place for families and parties.

Fredrick Niemeyer

Great place for an event or night out with the kiddos.

resa Gonzalez

Good place for family

Kelli Perkins

Kids had a blast

Marc Barrett

Good way to spend an evening entertaining kids. Games are kinda pricey and really geared towards earning tickets but they are ok. Laser tag is fun and the two large play areas are cool bit cost 7 dollars for each half hour! Plus there's bowling. Food is overpriced but tastes ok.

Kristin Moore

Great family fun. There's something for everyone.

Jennifer Crabtree

Great family fun!

Susan Powell

The play area is fun enough and the bowling is fine too. However, it's the food section that lacks the luster this needs for five stars. We watched our food get made, and waited beside to get it. We waited for 15 minutes min. When another guy came up, he had the device going off and they still didn't get him addressed right away. (They were not even busy when we ordered) but did get a little busier. Still, there's no reason - with six employes back there - to wait for food like that. Two were cooking, technically two were cashering and who knows what the others were doing. Worst off, when the guy with the buzzer came up to get his food, they tried to give ours to him. We were like that's ours. She gave him his food and then walked away. Yes, we didn't get our food for another 5 minutes after that. And, still we had to get our drinks. On top of that, the seasoning on the burger was a bit much - too much of something on it. It didn't taste right. Overall, food quality was mediocre and the service was atrocious.

Marilu Leal

Fun place yo take the kiddos and have parties

chris Johnson

Awesome place to take your kids and family staff very helpful and happy to be there

chantel Tate

I hate it, because I've gone here for years. I love the workers and most of it.. but I feel like they prioritize leaguers over everyone, leaving not much to the public to enjoy beyond the arcade or laser tag. They prioritize league for lanes, but then nickel and dime you on things like not offering dipping sauces with pickles and such. I get that it's expected to be more expensive, just slightly insulting and I will do my best to discontinue eating here.

mom mommy

Games to high in price

Vella Bella

It was awesome kids didn't want to leave I have a family of 5 and only spent around$120 and we were able to play from 7pm until 11 can't wait to go again

Lane Carpenter

Great family fun ❤️

Vernita McDuffy

Always fun. Love the games that the whole family can play together. We had a blast. Can't wait until next time.

Melissa Terrell

Lots of different activities for all ages. Bowling, ropes challenge, ball pit to the extreme, laser tag, huge play place with a super intense fast slide, and brand new arcade. All the games work! Lots of fun but be prepared to spend $$$!

Mr. Ford

Very active entertainment location. It has something for all ages from 3 to 103. We have a toddler and a teenager and both were so thrilled to play there that they didn't want to leave. Our three year old had a blast in the soft play area, she ran her older sister half to death trying to keep up with her. There was ample seating for us older folks that needed a break and more games than you could play in a day. Our teen and I went for the lazer tag. It was so much fun! I haven't enjoyed myself so much since I was a teenager. All the other players were having as much fun as we were. We actually spent so much time in those areas we didn't have the energy or time to bowl. We certainly will be back to do that and more. I understand why their parking lot is so full all the time now. The prices were also far better than the surrounding entertainment options.

Jackie Dotson

One of the few places in town that gives teens and kids something to do. There are inflatables, obstacles courses, laser tag, bowling, arcade games, and a kitchen for food. Birthday parties are sort of pricey but there are a good number of options in that regard. They are open on a number of holidays too so that gives families something to do when others are visiting. Nice spot that keeps adding options.

Shannon Powell

Hijinx is a great place for adults and children alike. There is a large variety of arcade games, all tailored to different interests so that there is something for everyone. I haven't personally done the sky walk, bowling, or laser tag, but I've heard great things about them from other patrons. The prices are a little high for me, especially for the food and refreshments, but there are weekly specials that are great if you take advantage of them. For example, a $20 Hijinx play card will get you $40 worth of arcade gaming power on Mondays and arcade games are all half price on Wednesdays from 6 to 10 p.m. The staff is friendly enough, but don't often appear very enthusiastic to be there. Arcade games frequently have small issues, often caused by misuse of patrons, but staff does very well to go above and beyond to solve any issues. Bathrooms are large, beautiful, and CLEAN. We go every chance we get. Edit: It is also a very safe place for large groups with children because there is a strong, peaceful police presence during high volume hours.

Shari Hufford

Great fun for all family members

Sheryl Lady

Half of the activities were not working in the foam ball area. The kids were a little disappointed.

Jessica Gasho

Staff is always very friendly and helpful when I take my 3 kiddos.

Jason Key

A great place to bring your kids! Fun for the adults too.

Ryan Dixon

I've been coming here since I was a kid when it was the Bowling Center. Laser Tag is fun and there's a good arcade to play in. Some day I'll venture to the ropes course. Definitely a great family place!

Gordon Morgan

Lot of fun kids all had a blast, as well as adults.

Kaylee Wahlquist

Wonderful place to be worth friends, family, SOS, whoever. Out was so much fun. And affordable.

Linda Richardson

Fun bowling great people running Hijinx

Blake Stokes

My kids love this place but the staff is really snobby

Rachel Jones

If I could give this place a 0 star rating, I would. I entered a contest test not expecting to win but expecting to have a chance. It's not easy to talk about your significant other in 50 words or less. I did it just because that was the "rules". Turns out, rules didn't apply. Oh well, my man doesn't need a free ring and he deserves more than 50 words anyways. This place is a JOKE.

Bowerick Wowbagger

Lots of fun for the kids... couldn't find a video game to play that was down to my speed though...

Stephanie Brown

Probaby the funnest place iv been to in Arkansas. I highly recommend it. They have bowling, laser cade, arcade, virtual reality, foam factory and more.

Arya Betts

It was awesome I enjoyed everything !!!!!!

Jacob Williams

Loved it family friendly. Go there and you will have alot of fun

Joseph Buttgen

Best of best!

David Foster

Great family fun for everyone. Laser tag, bowling, video games. My kids LOVE this place.

Team Stucker

This is a wonderful family friendly place to let loose and have fun. All the things a family could ask for at fair prices.

Chris Avery

My son loves all the arcade games. He mainly tries to get points to get prizes.


I just went for the arcade. It was fun. I'd avoid it when little kids are having a party because it's not a lot of space and parents these days can't be bothered to watch their kids for a few hours. Bowling alley looked nice too. Has a little indoor playground for kids, swings and stuff. Pretty fun little place to spend a couple hours.

Chelci Ellis-Eubanks

Amazing place, great service

Jerry Chancellor

Great tournament atmosphere. Very well operated bowling alley. I would recommend it for good family fun.

Cassandra Brown

This was our first time to visit this establishment and I am not at all impressed. Almost every game was a dollar or more with little or no ticket payout. When I asked the man at the counter what "activites" were his response was rude and he never gave me a straight answer. He did however, feel the need to tell me to "calm down" after the 3rd time I asked him to explain what "2 activity passes" got me. Against my better judgement we purchased the family package anyway and throughout the evening we were spoken to rudely by the staff. At the end of our visit we had to wait over 20 minutes for an employee to cash in our tickets for prizes. Not because it was busy, but because everyone was standing around talking. I do not recomend this rude, overpriced establishment to anyone looking for a fun place to take your family.

F. Young

A great place to take the kids for some fun. Big building a super clean rest rooms.


I like Hijinx, but I'm giving 4 stars because they won't give any discounts for emergency workers or ASU students. Don't get me wrong, it's still a fun place to go bowling or play arcade games though.

Matthew Howell

Payed for 4 hours and wasn't told that we were going to have till 8 or 8:30 before we could play and didn't say why.. after asking time doesn't stop either so we spent the money for no reason..

Erin Sullivan

Took my son here when I visited Jonesboro the laser tag and vr was fun we didn't try it but they have a sky trail and ropes course that looked challenging and fun

christy smith

Great family fun.


So much to do for all ages. Games are allitle spendy but are new and teck. The spots for kids to play go by time and to me are pretty cheap. It got the update it needed pretty nice place for familys.

Eric & Julie Lambert

Nice place. We had a good time.

JD McLane

Tons of fun very clean and the teenagers that worked with the children were very nice. We will return

Relata Parker

Great family fun.

Carmen Prince

This place is so cool. Our 8 year old daughter loved it. Lots of different choices of things to do for all ages.

Google User

Fair pricing; clean and updated facility; bowling, arcade games, laser tag. Often have promotions for children in summer time

timeless gamer

The bowling was great. The pricing is pretty fair. The arcade is a little lackluster of different games but what they got it's not bad.

Jawanika Hill

Its something to do. There aren't very many entertainment options here. They have bowling, laser tag, arcade games, and a couple more attractions. My son has had his birthday party here and he loved it.

Vickie Wiggins

So much fun will definitely be back

Jeffrey Sharp

Fun for the kids, lots of games, climbing wall and always the bowling lanes. Hot food and cold drinks when you're ready. A great place to have fun!!!

jamilah dixon

I love bowling her plus it's great service I saw them kicking people out though

Gabriel Cantu

Went to the arcade and was underwhelmed. Still had fun, but the game prices were high and no skee-ball game. Might consider "by-the-hour" play cards as a suggestion.

Amber Palmer

Amazing place for all ages. My toddler loves their soft contain play and foam factory. Very inexpensive. My husband and I love the arcade and bowling. We even enjoy playing in the soft contain play area and foam factory area with our daughter.

So much stuff to do here. Bowling, arcades, rope course, laser tag, play area, foam factory, food.

Shane White

Amy Barber

Very helpful, love environment, fun place to take kiddos

Jason Hicks

This is a great place for family fun. From bowling to laser tag and ropes course and foam pit to a soft contained play area has all ages covered. The price for each area is a reasonable price of 5 to 7 dollars.

Evelyn Palmer

Great atmosphere. The workers are nice and the food was good! Awesome place to hang out and enjoy yourself at any age! I will definitely be going back.

Darla Gunn

I tell everyone I know about this place! Love love love it!

We had a field trip there. They did a great job of being organized and the workers were all super friendly and patient with the kids!

Chad Brewer

Many activities for kids and adults alike.

Elizabeth Hicks

Fun for kids and adults. The staff is always helpful and courteous.

Fred Hobson

Best I ever been and had so much fun.

Vanessa Flowers

We went for the spring break special. I called and was told on the phone several times that the price included "everything in the building". That was not the case once we got there. There was no virtual reality available and all the big arcade games were excluded. Actually probably nearly half the games were excluded. Also the kids did not get any tickets for the games they did get to play and we were not told that up front either.

Sue Thomas

Really enjoyed our time there, plan on returning

Nicole Trevino

Lots of fun and something to do for everyone! Great place!

Marcia Brown

Had a good time ... Great idea for a wedding reception ... Thanks Scott and Meredith Hooper

Pim Gilliam

There are not only bowling alley but more into family entertainment in this place. Super cool laser tag, Zipline, kid zone and all the awesome games. They are also offer private party room or you can rent the place on special occasions.

Courtney Purser

We are from out of town and make an effort to stop by every time we come to visit family. The staff is always so kind to us and go out of their way to make sure everything is enjoyable. And the attractions are super fun for everyone!

Terry McCanless

Awesome experience. Skyler was the man!

Lakh Mahr

When you have way too much time and money on your hands

Tiffany Pervin

Great prices, I like that there is an arcade for the ones that don't bowl.

Josh Crabtree

The premier place to be for family entertainment. Between bowling, laser tag, rope courses, and arcades. there is plenty for the entire family to do. To top that all off, they have great food that is much better than the standard bowling alley affair

James Moon

Our Hostess we're so sweet and accommodating. Our Grandsons party was wonderful. Thanks.

Matthew Hoskinds

My kid absolutely loved it. If planning on going multiple times be sure to get the family pass

Tonya Perkins

Friendly staff signed the kids up for free bowling every summer all we pay is $6 for shoe rental the kids love it.

Todd Williams

Fun, fun. Plenty of room even when it looks crowded. Well run.

kelly Manuel

A fun place for everyone.

Terry Ethridge

Has some really fun games especially in the FPS style including some arcade adaptations of great console games, several games of skill/chance that are engaging and enjoyable, and a handful vintage or vintage inspired boardwalk and carnival games. I'm a huge fan of the test your strength punching bag, and skeeball. Also you'd never notice but there's a whole bowling alley stuck to the back of the place!. Also the laser tag is not only one of the only places around to go to play, it's also quite well built and really involving especially for an indoor setup and for an area this size. I still have 3 stars because unfortunately it's gold plated in that place. Everhthing is notably higher priced than you'd think was necessary with the volume of revenue generating machine s and activities and the sheer magnitude of people that go through their doors. And no game or activity as awe-inspiringly guilty of this cash trapping than the snack and refreshment area. I can not accurately express the mind-numbing blunder that is the menu. The food may be tasty (i dont know I didn't eat it) but it can't be take-a-Payday-loan-for-snacks good! In all seriousness, 4 dollars for a medium drink and no refills, 6 bucks for those tiny lunchable style nachos, 7 dollars for a burger, 5 for a hotdog, and God forbid you order one of the plate meals. It seriously is almost comical, the lack of respect it must take to willingly and inexplicably ignore so much of what it is to have good customer service and appreciation. Im not implying that they actively to and intently planned to bilk people of their money, honestly. But there's no reasonable explanation for just how overpriced every thing is. However given that it does give memorable times of fun to look back on with family and friends. For this I'll say it's worth a trip or two a year with the understanding that you will set a budget for the activities you want to do and avoid all others. Shame though could easily be a 5 star attraction. On a brighter note, in regard to the over all shape of the place, it is well maintained, very clean and, visually, quite attractive.

Beverly Snow

My self and my kids had a blast

kelsi lopez

Lots of fun but rhe food service is not great. The employee was very rude.


Great atmosphere for family fun.

Uncounted Rex578

It was ok but service was great

Vicky Barnett

Great bowling alley and game room

Cathy Hale

This is a pretty cool place, we had a lot of fun bowling! The prices aren’t bad!

Shalanda Eafford

We had a great time

Brandon Abbott

Lots of fun, friendly family environment, theres always someone to help you with whatever you need or want.

Michael Bibler

Had a great time

Lynlee Correa

It's great with service but don't go there when it is guild trip day

Raphael Von Raben

Lots of arcade games, giant play pen for kids, a tall rope walk for adults, laser tag, and bowling. I only give it three stars because the food quality went down and price went up. $9.00 for fry, drink and cheese burger. It's $5 at Dairy Queen, and about the same at McDonald's. The staff are great, nice atmosphere, just too high on their food.

Karee Luttrell

Really fun place for kids and adults

Elizabeth Smith

Great family friendly entertainment. Good food, Great for large groups, fair price range. Lots of games to choose from!

Tasha Lowe

Great place for family fun!!

brandon brewer

Great place for kids. The latest games and friendly service

Suzi Norman

Great family time...

J Haskins

This place is pretty awesome...the food took a lil while but it was real burgers and everything was hot and fresh

James Powell

Came for a good clean time and that's exactly what I got. Good sports grill-type food and clean restrooms. Lots and lots of games and attractions to choose from. I especially liked the Tomb Raider light gun game. It's easy to win tickets and there are tons of prizes to cash in your tickets on. Fun for almost anyone. A bit under-staffed though.

Ella Jones

Such nice people. They let our special Olympics bowl, clean clean. Have great food. An more games an fun things to do. Great for family's an young kids. Love it.

Pat Slater

Hiijnx family have a great suffer and great foods too eating places faster and have fun with our family and friends too

Kim Fletcher

Great organized parties, kids and adults had so much fun.....

A Google User

My Granddaughter wanted to go here on her birthday, so her parents took her. I met up with them shortly after and brought her a small birthday cake as a gift...BUT before I was allowed in the staff at the door told me since it wasn't a reserved birthday party, they would have to charge me $30 for bringing in the cake. YES, THAT'S $30.00!!! The cake itself was less than $10! Absolutely ridiculous... but since it was my birthday present to her, I reluctantantly paid it. Real "Christian" way to run a business, Hijinx...

Sandra Lately

Everything was good except for the $25 charge to bring a birthday cake in. I can see a $5 entry fee for the cake. I believe they should consider remodel the area where you purchase food and add in a seating area to eat.

Gordon McKaskle

Very nice. Yessss, very nice.

Lindsey Marlow

Very fun for any event

Taressa Brown

Super fun and great family place!

Heziekiah Stitts

Kids enjoyed it even though the games are high priced

Curby Keeling

Kind of expensive but fun

Pro Crusher

There was this lady the miss placed a card and he couldn't return stuff for a shocking gum toy but other than that it was awesome

DR Murphy

Children love this place, good bowling alley, many games for kids, game rooms with balls flying everywhere, zip lines. Can spend too much money fast on video games, food very basic.
