Attractions

Visitors will find over 120 arcade games scattered around the attraction hall, including crane games, pinball, and skeeball. Pricing varies per game, with some giving out points to collect for the prize room. All points are awarded through your game card, so there’s no worry about holding onto piles of tickets.

We spent about 3 hours at Scene75, and that was more than enough time for fun. We took turns bopping back and forth between arcade games and attractions. The first spot my kids wanted to check out was the giant inflatables. A 30-minute pass was $7 per jumper. With slides, climbing walls, and an obstacle course, we made a second visit back to this area later in the evening.

There are two 9-hole mini-golf courses in Scene75: a large course including waterfall is at the center, and a glow-in-the-dark mini-golf area along the wall. We opted to do the glow-in-the-dark spot due to the underwater theme. We also appreciated that this was an enclosed room, as it gave us a break from the sounds of arcade games. The course was an appropriate level of difficulty for the 7-, 9-, and 12-year-olds in our group.

We enjoyed a game of laser tag after eating. As my kids are younger, I don’t normally seek out laser-tagging, so we decided to take advantage of having it at Scene75. I think I had as much fun as the kids did!

Mini-bowling was a great add-on to this space, as regular bowling definitely takes longer. The biggest kids in our group loved trips on the tsunami indoor roller coaster and the drop tower rides, too.

The fun lasts as long as you (and your wallet) can make it. We didn’t get a chance to do the batting cages, simply because we ran out of time before littles were spent. It will be our first stop when we return next time.

Tips for Your Trip

Before going, I’d recommend looking at the attractions list and getting an idea of what you’d want to do. This will help you decide how much to add to your game card.

For example, we enjoyed the arcade games, but didn’t prioritize them on this visit. Each child was able to leave with a few small goodies from the prize room. Items in the prize room were definitely higher quality than some other arcades.

Prices

All attractions and arcade games are pay-as-you-go, with money loaded on a card you can refill. Pricing for most arcade games range from $1-3 per play. Attractions vary in price, with HomeRun Zone and Vault Laser Maze starting at $3.50, up to $10 for go-karts. A full list of pricing can be found on their website.

Their deals and specials page also includes details about bonus money that’s added based on what you purchase. For example, a $100 play card will have an additional $20 added.

Food

Food is available for purchase at various stations throughout Scene75. Chicken sandwiches, tenders, and pizzas are found at the main dining area, with a snack shop on the opposite side of the exhibit hall. We ate a large cheese pizza, which easily fed the five kids in our group. Outside food is not allowed in Scene75. There are a number of restaurants along Weber Road if you’d prefer to leave and come back.

There’s also an ice cream shop near the entrance, as well as a full-service bar in the center.

Restrooms

There are two restrooms: one right near the entrance, and one at the back next to the laser tag room.

Scene75 Hours

Scene75 is open Wednesdays and Thursdays from 3:00pm – 9:00pm, and Fridays from 11:00am – 11:00pm. Weekend hours are Saturdays from 10:00am – 11:00pm and Sundays from 11:00am – 9:00pm. They are closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Special hours run on holidays and school breaks, so check their website for special hours.

Our group consisted of 13, 10, 9, 7, and 4-year olds, and I can honestly say, they all had a great time. They all enjoyed certain attractions more than others, that was the nice part of paying-as-you-go. We’d decide what attraction was next, and whoever wanted to go could join. If someone opted not to participate, they found nearby arcade games to pass the time. We ate lunch before we went, and then split a cheese pizza in the middle of our play-session to extend our visit.

Best Days/Times to Go to Scene75

Weekdays are quieter than weekends, but the space is huge, so you’ll rarely feel crowded. The only attraction we had to wait for was the go-karts, where we waited no longer than 5-10 minutes. I imagine weekend evenings would be the most crowded time to visit.

Special Needs Accommodations

With music and arcade games creating ambient noise in the background, the space can be a bit loud. The Blacklight Mini-Golf room was quieter, which was a great spot to get relief from the noise. The entire exhibit hall is all on one level, making it wheelchair and stroller accessible.

Discounts for Scene75

Scene75 shares discounts on their Facebook page, such as the 50% off all attractions sale happening on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.
