The best thing about Time 2 Play Game Room (T2P) is the flat price to play all you want! Well, maybe the best thing is the combination of classic games like ping pong and pool combined with more unusual varieties like a round 4-player elimination air hockey game. Actually, the best thing about T2P is probably the owners, Richard and Angelia Bartlett who readily strike up a conversation and hop in to play games with the guests. Well, I can’t decide… so what you need to know is that there’s a new game room on the south side and you’re going to want to check it out!
T2P has only been open for a month, and they are still perfecting their vision. Eventually the walls will be brightly colored and more games will fill the large bright space including a giant Connect Four game, shuffleboard, and some activities for the younger set. Already, though, T2P is a great space for kids and adults to enjoy unlimited play on air hockey, hoop shoot, pool, and video game consoles that house the classics like Donkey Kong and Frogger.
Rick, who owns the Game Room with his wife Angelia, shared with us that they had a vision for a place where kids and adults could spend a day playing without the hassle and expense of tokens or a time limit on play. Rick hopes to eventually leave the business to his daughter. The classic video games are a throwback to the childhood of many parents, and activities like hoop shoot and ping pong make T2P a fun choice for a less sedentary indoor activity. While T2P is ideal for older kids and adults, even my toddlers had a blast, and Rick hopes to grow the Game Room into a place where people of all ages can find a great way to spend the day. The Toddler Town has a small trampoline, playhouse, and basketball hoop, and some smaller pool and air hockey tables are in the plans. A private party room will be available to rent at a reasonable cost for special events, and guests will even have the opportunity to decorate light switches and ceiling tiles to help color the space.
The bottom line is, this place is fun. Bring the kids in after school or on a day off, or head in for a date night. Tell them Indy With Kids sent you!
