This multi-level, massive arcade on the Strip is a game player's nirvana..
Kids and those who like to play like kids will enjoy a few hours at GameWorks. The themed collaboration between video-gaming giant Sega, Steven Spielberg's Dreamworks SKG and Universal Studio; GameWorks is more like a huge rave party at a rich friend's house than an arcade (an over-21 full bar and restaurant area offer well-kept pool tables and sofas for lounging). The main draw is the video games: hundreds of the latest and greatest, with a few classics (Pac Man, Asteroids) thrown in for parents' sake.
Finally Pool Tables!. It is like pulling teeth trying to find pool tables on the strip. GameWorks had a ton in their bar and on their game floor so I was a happy camper. Their pizzas were good, but their menu could have used more healthy options. Overall I was relieved to find the place and I'll go back when I'm in town.
Great customer service, Incredible food!. I was visiting Las Vegas with a few friends and were staying in at the MGM next door to GameWorks. We slept in one day and after getting up decided to take a stroll down Las Vegas Blvd. in search of lunch. We walked past GameWorks and saw their open for lunch banner, so decided to give it a try. The food was incredible! I so didn't expect that from a place called GameWorks! I had their double decker burger and it was so big and juicy. It was a perfect combination of flavors. It was so big though that I couldn't finish it and didn't get the $10.00 game card card that they offer as a challenge for eatting the whole thing. The service was great. A manager even came by to see how everything was and introduce herself. We even took a couple hours and played some games too. There are a ton of games and we spend $27.00 for two hours of play and we still didn't get to everything. I would suggest making GameWorks a stop when visiting Las Vegas.
DRINKS + GAMES = FUN. I had a blast when I went to GameWorks! Their lounge area reminded me of the ultra lounges I had been to nights before at the different casinos, but GameWorks didn?t have any lame cover charge. My friends and I grabbed some drinks up in their lounge, and then we headed downstairs to play all of the games. Without realizing it 4 hours had passed and the place was closing up. We lost track of time because there were a ridiculous amount of games to play. They even have the old school games I loved growing up. Drinks + Games = FUN.
The Giant Nascar is GameWorks saving grace.... I've been to many arcades in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Gameworks is fine, for an hour or so. Not much more. It's dark and sorta not so clean feeling inside. Not too many places for parents to sit, be comfortable and let their kids run around and spend their Vegas gambling money. GameWorks might get more visitors if they made it more parent-friendly--they've got enough game selections, but after all the casino walking--I'd gladly plunk down $50 to let my kid run amok here--but, where the heck do I sit? The restaurant is a 'gotta be starving or else" kind of selection. The only reason I'll trek down into the dark cavern is the Nascar life size cars, which sometimes the game isn't even manned for 30 minutes or more at at time. I believe you can still find giant Nascar racing over at the Luxor Hotel arcade too.
