We attended Odyssey Pumpkin Farm October 10 around noon. It is not a farm or even a pumpkin patch ?? just a barren area adjacent to a corn field with tents and bounce houses for "rides."

The animals at the petting zoo looked overheated and sickly ?? apparently without much hydration or shelter. Our 5-year-old daughter got knocked around and kicked in the head because the activities are unsupervised by untrained teenagers who let it become a free-for-all?? and that's if there happens to be an attendant. Food is more expensive than Bengston's ?? $3.50 for an ear of corn!

We got there, paid an additional $3 to go through "The Beast" (probably the best thing there), headed towards the animals and bounce houses and soon realized it was time to go. We didn't even want to see the other "attractions." About $50 bucks down the drain.

Website totally misrepresents the place with stock photos that seem real. For a more accurate idea, look at the pictures on their Facebook page which show it as it really is ?? more like a truck stop with tents.

1. DIRTY. Floors were sticky and visually dirty in party room. Equipment in the Exploration Adventure was just disgusting with dirty smears of I don't know what all over the place. They obviously DO NOT mop here or wipe down anything. 2.

My husband and 2 kids have been to Odyssey many times in the past and it was just ok. This time it was so disgusting I had to leave. I can deal with a little bit of dirt, but this was over the top. In the food area, everywhere I walked my shoes were sticking to the floor. The jungle gym/ball pit, I don't even have words to describe. Even my kids were disgusted by it. We spoke with a manager, who could care less. The manager actually stated that it was a health hazard for us wearing shoes in the jungle gym, so we had to buy socks. I'm all for wearing socks and not shoes where kids are running around, but the whole place is a health hazard. What a joke!!! If they think that taking off shoes is going to keep that place clean they are crazy. By the way, I threw all of our socks in the garbage. They were so gross, I wouldn't even let the kids touch them. It was not crowded at all, which now I know why. This place is extremely expensive, which we don't care spending our money, but make sure that the place is at least clean. On a final note, went to the bathroom and immediatley walked out. Went to a gas station instead.

Pros: NONE

Cons: The entire place is covered in filth!!!!!

This place is disgusting. I dont' know where to start. First of all it's costly...and I only had a two year old. You pay for every section separately or get a band deal. The bands don't include the rides. I choose outdoor only, jumpy floats. These were FILTY. I could only imagine the germs that were crawling in them. When I complained to the attendent he acted like he didn't understand English. UGH! The washrooms were dirty too! the washroom by the outdoor area didn't have tissue paper and smelled horrible. We decided to make the most of it and play games. Almost every game we put tokens in didn't work. I had to keep asking the attendent for assistant. Thank goodness we didn't pay to get into the indoor maze, hamster crawly looking thing. I highly doubt it if they ever sanitize the place. The food wasn't up to par either. I could get better from an outdoor vendor. You need to be specific about the hot dog you want. Ridiculous! I guess what bothered me the most were the employees that didn't give a care. Yes they are mostly all teenagers getting the minimum pay but they DO NOT CARE ABOUT THEIR JOBS...none of them. from the outdoor attendent, to the person who takes the tickets for the prizes. The man who seemed to be some kind of manager behind the food counter was spacey and I observed him degrading his employees. This place is horrible and I would not recommend it to anyone. I gave my daughter a anti-bactirial gel bath in the parking lot. I was so grossed out.

Pros: Easy to get to

it was an excellent experience! there was so much to do! from the moment we walked in, i almost lost the kids! I came in with a younger child not expecting much for her to do but was pleasantly surprised. everyone was very kind and helpful. they did not mind answering my may questions. i was very pleased with the food and the fact that i could purchase a pizza and a pitch of pop for such a low price really helped my budget. I've been to chuck e cheese before and this place was so much more grand! i will never return. I've been told they were pricey before and i did not see that. for the amount of activities they offer and fun that is waiting to be had it was truly worth every penny! i will surly come back again and again. i fully recommend it to everyone!

the service, the food and allot of the equipment was inoperable. It was a horrible expensive experience. I would not recommend this place to anyone. I've gone there before about 5 years ago, but not the clientele has changed and it's like being in the a wasteland. It was a terrible experience.

I recently brought my children to Odyssey Fun World and was really impressed. I haven't been there in a couple of years but I was glad I decided to go there again. There are different types of games so not only could my kids play but I could also. I purchased the combo wristband which allowed them to play unlimited in the climbing area and enjoy the rides for a reasonable price. If there were any problems with the games, the staff was helpful and friendly. I also liked the new line area they made for the redemption counter. It makes getting the kids prizes much easier. I would definitely come back and I cannot wait until my children get older so we can play the laser tag as a family!

I've been there 3times the first two times were fun and OK. I just went there yesterday and i was very disgusted. The ball pit is dirty and i went in the tunnels w/the kids and there was nasty brown stuff in allot of places. So I'm thinking that's never cleaned by any employee, so i do not want my children crawling in there. When i wanted to leave me and my daughter already had our shoes on and i wanted my son out of those tunnels an employee had an attitude about me going in there just to get him w/my shoes on. It really made me mad considering other people had their things w/them in there and the place is dirty anyway. So i really see why it would matter and i think the employee just wanted to be snotty. The food is ridiculously pricey considering on how it taste. Also allot of the games didn't work but u don't find that out until it eats all Ur tokens.

Despite other reviews I ventured out to Odyssey Fun World last week and to my surprise the place was amazing. From the minute I walked in there myself and the children I brought where in heaven.... There is so much for these kids to do there from Laser Tag to Rides Games even bumper cars and so on.... Even the food was decent..Staff was Great kind and Courteous What can I say but I cant wait for summer to come around because my kids are bothering me to try the go karts on 1 of their 2 tracks. This place I see myself being dragged there by my kids a lot more now.

I must say that the activities and things to do at Odyssey Fun World are great - my kids were more than satisfied, but I was very shocked at the attitudes of the people working there. You don't see smiling faces or get a pleasant customer service experience. The people working there seem to take their job as "just a job" and therefore aren't happy with their job, thus causing them to have attitudes.

My daughters wanted to get on one of the rides but no one was there to let them on so we went to look for someone. The girl which we asked about the ride basically gave us this sigh and walked her unmotivated self over there to let the kids on the ride. My kids which are only 7, both noticed the attitude and were then afraid to even get on the ride because the girl "looked mean."

Let's not get started on the exploration adventure! I love the fact that the exploration adventure has a little room where tired parents can sit and supervise their children. However, what i witnessed from one of the workers there was just unbelievable. My husband and i were in flip flops due to the hot weather. we asked if we could go sit in that little room so we can watch our kids. We were told we needed to take off our shoes. Well, i wasn't gonna walk around there barefoot. So i sat on the little bench before you walk in the admission door. As I sat there, a few people kept walking in with flip flops on. I said nothing at first until it became a repetitive thing. So the guy again, sighs, and allowed me in with my flip flops.

This place is just gross! We took our two young children for a change from Chuck E. Cheese's. In the climbing area, there were dust bunnies everywhere, and none of the surfaces looked very clean. Many of the games and rides were either out of order or ate tokens, and there were not a whole lot of games geared toward younger children, nor was there much variety. We will never go back there.

My experience here was just "so so". The place is crowded, seems to be a teen hangout. Not a place you want to bring really young children to. The food is just OK, nothing to brag about, and a little on the expensive side.
