This place can be good for kids during daytime hours or fun for adults late at night. Many of the better rides are no longer there, if you have been in the past the hot air balloon ride was not to be missed. There are still many, many video games including some that give you tickets like skeeball and others that let you try something you wouldnt normally do like driving a big rig, or snowboarding. It can easily kill a few hours of time downtown and kids love it, but some adults get bored easily. Games are played using a card system so it is harder to stop in and just play a game. Cards must be purchased for 2$ as well and then have money added on to them. Bar and restuarant area are nice and a welcome break from video games after a few hours. It can be fun to look out from the upstairs and watch the die hard gamers down below. Keep your eyes out for times when prices are cheaper or are all inclusive as this makes it much affordable.

Pros: pinball, variety, bar, open late

Cons: adds up fast, old rides gone

Love going here, they always have a good vibe going inside. We went on a thursday, was only 10$ for 2 hrs of Unlimited gameplay!! VERY great deal, considering you can pay 1.50$ for 1 play on one of the newer machines!!!

I would give Gameworks 5 stars, but five stars is perfect, and nothing is perfect. What I like about Gameworks is that they change the prizes in the "U.F.O Catcher" very often. They have good prizes, and games that are older and newer. You can get a lot of points on your card for a good price. I reccomend Gameworks!!!

Was excited to go but ended up underwhelmed. Kind of tired looking and feeling inside. I expected more, especially vintage games. I did like the cards that are used in place of quarters, and most of the machines seemed to be working.

The games they have are fun although lot of the games were out of service. Prices were not bad at all. They are open late, which is nice. The bathrooms were filthy, we left earlier than planned so we could use a clean bathroom.

I'm sure Gameworks is fun, but don't even think about eating or drinking in World Sport Grille. Maybe they're just new, but I don't think I've ever received worse service. I was with a party of about 10 people and we received no service unless we went to the bar. Meanwhile, other tables received food and drinks, but we were ignored. When we were finally able to get a servers attention, we were told the kitchen was closed due to an emergency. But somehow, other tables were still able to order and be served. It took 20 minutes of waiting at the bar to close a tab only to have it thrown at me. And two days later the charge showed up with an additional $9 tip added. I guess the bartender felt they did a better job than I thought they did.

Gameworks provides a great space for gatherings big or small. I just organized an event for 100-200 people and it went flawlessly. The Gameworks staff worked with all our requests and were extremely accomodating.

If you want a place that is fun, energetic, with good games, great drinks, and a variety of bar style food, head to GameWorks! There is a wide variety of games and getting a game card is great because you can walk away and have credit for next time if you don't spend it all on Air Hockey! Head upstairs to the lounge and order a pitcher (huge pitchers, by the way), some appetizers (pizza, nachos, and chicken fingers were great), and watch the game on the many tv's suspended on the wall. This is the place to go for a group, team, family, or even a date -- just don't get too competitive with each other.

I would come here just for the games, but my softball team and I had a great time here the other night doing a happy hour hang out. We had great appetizers and drinks, and it was ok to be that slightly loud group here. Then we got game cards and it was one competition after another...yes even Dance Dance Revolution! HA! It was a great bonding/fun time for the crew!

This was a clean and not too noisy gaming center. A little on the expensive side due to it's location in Downtown Seattle. It was appropriate for my kids age 6 and 9 while there were several teens hanging out also. There was an ineteresting ambiance with brick walls and a few places for seating. It didn't feel like a bunch of video games crammed into a small space. Our family's favorite game was the virtual batting cage.

PROS: A place for kids and adults to have fun
CONS: Costs a bit more than other places

This is the arcade for all ages. Expensive but worth it. The games are fantastic even for those who are typically not interested in arcade games. It is adults only at night (a good change of pace from a typical night out on the town); however during the day families are welcome. There is something here to entertain everyone. Love the racing game, get 8 friends and have a race! Food however is expensive and not good quality. Better to grab something at a nearby restaurant.

Yes, it can get spendy, but it's worth it if you can spend 4 hours eating dinner and playing games with your kids! The whole family always has a great time.

The food is good and the games are fun.

I will agree with some other reviewers though, there always seems to be at least 1 or 2 games out of service that we want to play.

If you are looking to play some videogames here, you pretty much have to get an hour play card. It is pointless to pay as you play because each credit is at least 25 cents more than at other places. For example, playing one game might usually cost 75 cents somewhere else, but it will cost 1.25 here. Security here is always beefy, which raises my eyebrow about how safe it is around here.

Gameworks is one of the most popular video game place in Seattle. My kids loved this place and always wanted to spend they're time there instead of touring Seattle. That didn't happen of course. They did have all the newest games and attractions.

Gameworks was such a big deal when it first opened. However, now it has several rivals. The novelty has worn off a bit. The games are expensive and the place can be loud and crowded most of the time. Luckily, they do put coupons in the Entertainment book so I have used those. I like the upstairs with the token games, although it takes quite a few tickets to get something worthwhile (that you didn't need in the first place!). I've gotten other people addicted to those token games.

I have to say I stay away from Gameworks most of the time because it costs alot to play their games. However, it's worth it to go splurge every once in a while. They have a great selection of new games, an ok selection of old school games (Mrs. Pacman, Frogger, etc.), and some carnival games like Skeeball. Oh, and their Airhockey machine is pretty awesome. Only drawback is that it can get crowded and you have to wait for your game.

PROS: Fun if you like video games.
CONS: Can get crowded, expensive.

gameworks, i expected, is supposed to be a bunch of fun with lots of arcade games and what not. however, this gameworks, majority of the games i wanted to play were out of order. and the games that were working, were just not invigorating to my energetic senses. there was this one game, the horse game, and all you do is jump up and down---not exciting. and this other game was a virtual fight, but you had to do un-martial arts moves that did not make sense, thus, this game sucked. i can go on and on about the games, but i think you all know what i am talking about.

Tons of games of all kinds. For me I like the Pinball Machines and the shooting games. Great place for parties, hanging with friends, or waiting to go to the movies nextdoor at Meridian 16. Suggestion don't bring a lot of money because like me you might blow it all on video games. But overall its a cool fun place.

PROS:
CONS: The food is alright. Not recommed for little kids

When we go to Gameworks, we always have fun. Tons of games to play...lots to do. They even have a bar that looks over the game area for adults. The bad thing is, its pretty expensive. Between parking, games, and food youre spending a big hunk of cash. But if you dont mind that, definaely go..it's a good time!

My husband and I waited, and waited to go here, till all the hooplah died out. So we finally went... 10.00$ for parking. (not biggie, it is seattle for goodness sake) but then, we eat dinner in their resteraunt, that was 30.00$ (still no biggie) and then we buy 2 -20.00 all you can play cards (40.00$) and now it is adding up. 90.00$ so far. Well so we played the games, but this is what sucked, they were basically all the same 5 games, just different versions. There was racing, boxing, gun shooting, and surfing. Well after about 35 minutes there was no excitement, like I said it was the same 5 games, not very fun when you still have like 1 1/2 hours left. To me it was an experiance learned, but money wasted.

PROS: lots of games
CONS: no veriaty, lots of money

OK, enjoyable for the whole family except possibly mom. Retro arcade games will appeal to the gen-X gamers, while the modern arcade games and hydraulic games will appeal to the younger kids. Another fun place to take guests from out of town.

Unless you happen to go to gameworks during their happy hour, it's extremely expensive to play games at gameworks. They have a balloon ride game that is extremely fun and interactive. They also have a racing game where 8 players sit side by side racing each other. Other than that, you can find the rest of the games at your local video game house and pay a ton less.

Gameworks in downtown Seattle is fun for all ages. There are a wide variety of games and amusments to suit every taste. I highly suggest the ballon popping game ride!
While overall the atmosphere is very family friendly, evenings - especially on weekends are more geered towards adults. Drinks are served in the restauraunt. Might be a great spot for a low key date even!
In any case - kids of all ages will have a great time!

PROS: FUN!

Located in beautiful downtown Seattle. Two levels of arcade fun. This place keeps up to date with new games on a monthly basis. The many choices might seem overwhelming to some. Once you try a few out you're pretty much settled in. This is good fun for everyone but probably catering to teens and younger. The second floor also has a bar area for the worn out adults. Good beer choices, by the way. There are also ticket games for the folks that like to get prizes.

PROS: Location, Choices, Alcohol, Large Space
CONS: Not enough games for adults

Gameworks combines a normal huge arcade with some big, expensive "rides" that you don't get just anywhere. It also has a bar and restaurant, which are OK, nothing to write home about. As an old man (38, which is old at this place), I really enjoy the "classic games room", which has oldies like Asteroids and Missile Command. It's also good fun to race against your friends. Don't go in thinking you'll jsut spend a few quarters, you need to buy a card to run anything here, and the money flows out QUICKLY. It can be very loud. Not a good place for a headache! :--)

Talk about a fun place to go for your child's next birthday party and/or a place to pre-funk before your next night on the town. The variet y of games here is amazing. They have something for everyone at all skill levels. Everything ranging from the Pac-Man type of games to interactive skateboarding and skiing games. Of course they have the usual shooting, martial arts, and racing games as well. They have a pretty good restaurant and bar as well that has Happy Hour specials, etc.

PROS: Lots of games, stuff to do for everyone, food, and drinks there as well. Free parking for two hours in nearby garages.
CONS: Food can be a little pricey.

I was at game works playing some of the new games with my boyfriend. We were having so much fun when one of the games took money off my card and wouldn't let me play. My boyfriend shrugged it off and refused to try to get his money back. I took my card to the cashier and he put $10 on my card for the inconvenience. That is not normal and it was really nice!

If you have kids its most likely that they like to spend time playing video games. Game works is huge and has thousands of video games to keep kids occupied. Game Works has everything form the latest fighting games to the old school arcade games I grew up with. Remember Frogger? Be ready to drop an easy $30 on games. Theyre not 25 cents anymore! Theres also a small restaurant and bar located upstairs.

A great place to just relax and have fun. They had up to date game along with great classics. When you're done playing they havea restraunt/bar with excellent food. Only thing I could think of to make it better is if they reatiled videogame consoles and games.

Most of the games in this joint are outdated or out of order, and the newer ones have players who just sit on them, so no one else gets a chance. (This is also the main problem with Ladies Night.) What a horrible experience.

If you're between the ages of 10 and 15--or occasionally like to act like it--GameWorks is a great way to spend a rainy Seattle afternoon. I visit family in Seattle several times a year, and the young and young-at-heart in our crew love to cut loose on the multiplayer games, air-hocky table and skeetball lanes. It's not supercheap, but it's always been worth it.
