We didn't want to but the 7 year old begged to play the arcade games, so we used it as a bargaining tool for him to finish the golf. That worked wonders. He completed it. We used our bargaining power with him as he was about to melt down over two people whom he thought cut in front of us in golf. So, if you are a parent with an atypical child use the arcade games as the end prize. I bought the boys $50 worth of playing card for the arcade games. They played just under one hour and it fulfilled their hearts' out for the video games. They were happy to get their plastic toys for prizes.
Just a caution for the mini golf: There is a section with several steps. I wondered why some older people decided to sit it out. The climb up (along with the slopes and bending down) did work out my legs (almost 40 year old mom).
From Sugar Land we took Grand Parkway (toll) and it took us just under one hour during rush hour. On the way back we took the Sam Houston Tollway and it took us 40 minutes (evening). Our total toll was under $11 on the Grand Parkway.
I did notice that there were lots of dads with the kids and no moms. Willowbrook Mall is right next to it. I also noticed lots of grandparents with their grandkids. So it is small enough for grandma and grandpa to take the older grandchildren to. Children taller than 44 inches can ride the go-carts but they must have an adult driver. Overall, the boys had a great time and we would definitely return.
