I have been to the WOW Zone several times. I have found that most of the time the servers are pleasent and fun (everyody has a bad day once in a while) though there could be more of them. The boling lanes woork well and the food is good for bar food. But remember they are getting better and they have done a lot with the limited space they have. They seem to cater to kids and bowlers but the atmophere in the bar is relaxing and enjoyable. My kids look forward to going there and I enjoy it too! There is nothing else like it here in Mankato.

WHAT A RIP-OFF!!!
I had called to set up a 10-yr old birthday party and I paid for one of the packages. The person I talked to on the phone stated that it would be approximately 1.5 hrs for the bowling/miniature golf and that we would have a hostess the entire time. Our entire time with the golf and the bowling was AT THE MOST 45 minutes. The kids get 1 small slice of pizza and 1 glass of pop, absolutely no refills. I then purchased $10 cards for the girls to use because they were bored. Our supposed "hostess" did nothing except complain on how tired she was because she had been out the night before. Needless to say, we will NOT be back for anything there!! The bill I rec'd (which did include a cake from Hy-Vee) was $168 for 8 girls. Add the $80 worth of cards I needed to purchase, the $248 was definitely not worth approximately 1.5 hours of "entertainment". I then needed to take the kids to McDonalds afterwards because they were still hungry. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THE WOW ZONE!!!!

Let's start off by saying that I was really exited to go here and had been looking forward to it. The biggest problem with this place is that they are terribly understaffed. I went on a Saturday night for a get together and ONE person was serving the 50+ people at the VIP lanes. By serving I mean taking orders, bringing the food, busing the tables, vacuuming the rooms, washing the dishes?! That's right for about 20 min our host couldn't take any of our orders because he was in back WASHING THE DISHES. This is just insane. Don't waste your time with this place. The wait staff was actually really great when they were around (save for the bartender). Hey WOW zone under staffing DOESN'T save you money when people stop going because of it!

This place is nothing but FUN! We went as a group and had a blast! Bowling was great! Mini golf was hard in the dark with a black light, but it was so much fun! Laser tag was the best! 12 minutes sure can fly by fast playing laser tag!! And two floors to run around and play!! It was great!!
We had appetizers and pizza... it was all delicious!!!
The workers there were SO GREAT!! SO helpful and fun...I can't say enough about them! They hired some great people! I can't wait to have the opportunity to go back and have some more fun! I am so glad they opened up something like this in Mankato! Lots of fun for everyone! You've got to go and check it out... you won't regret it!!

so about your guy's reviews on the employees i totally disagree. I have only walked in there because i just wanted to see what it was like and the employees were awesome, helpful, and talkative. the people at the reception desk were very helpful, they pointed out were everything was and how to use everything. we wanted to walk around and see what was all there, so we walked directly to the laser tag area. we asked the guy in charge of it if we could just look inside the area, they said yes, and then he was so nice he walked us through the entire thing and talked about how he thinks it was supposed to replicate the movie the matrix, we were very pleased with everything there and we will be going there.

I recently met up with a group of about ten people at the wow zone bar. Five people ordered food, and everybody's food came out at different times..and one of the orders placed was forgotten. Two of the orders were missing the salads that were supposed to come with them and they didn't have basil to make a margherita pizza. The waitress was obviously new and didn't ask if you wanted another beer..you had to ask her.

I have visited the Wow Zone on 2 different occasions. I agree in regards to the employees. They do not seem to be trained well enough to handle questions and some of the equipment. I also feel like they lack in offering a good variety of different packages. I was wanting to throw a birthday party for a 23 year old there (laser tag is a favorite along with bowling) and was hoping to be able to use the 3 hour lock-in package ($24.95/person) for a group of 20 people but was unable too. I didn't need the "lock-in" part of the deal as I understand you can't shut down a business on a Saturday night for 20 people but a package similar to that with the exception of it being open to the public still would have been a nice option. Overall, it's a nice fun family place but they have a lot to work through yet as a new business.

The laser tag was awesome!But the rest blah, first the employees are kinda rude and most of them seem as though they only have a 5 th grade education.The wow cards are to confusing for the kids. We bowled and it took two employess just to figure out how to get the bumbers up for the kids and mini golf area was way to small. The food was fairly cheap but once i tasted it i seen why patty melt was burnt and dry, fries were cold and coleslaw was ok!
I wouldnt recommend this place to anyone i only hope that in a year the place gets better when management figures it out a bit.

Wow Zone just opened and is a great place for the family. It has many bowling lanes, including a private suite for parties. They have a big arcade where you win tickets for prizes. They have indoor laser tag and miniature golf. They have a snack bar where you can get dipping dots and wood fire pizza. They have a Sports Bar that has great sweet potato fries. Many big screen televisions.
