When You First Get There:
When you first get to John's Incredible Pizza Co., you have to go through the line. You must pay for an all-you-can-eat buffet to get in. Drinks are not included in the buffet price, but for just under $2 extra, you can have unlimited fountain drinks, icees, tea, and coffee drinks.
Once You Are In:
Once you have paid, and you are in, you can choose a table in one of the theme rooms. Some of the themes include: A Loony Toons room, where they have a large screen and several smaller screens playing cartoons; A Sports room, where they have various sports games playing on screens; and a Timber Lodge room, that has a fireplace and a nice cabin feel to it.
The All-You-Can-Eat Buffet:
When you are ready to eat, just go to the buffet, grab a plate, and serve yourself. They have a really good salad bar, a baked potato bar, various pastas, a couple of soups, and lots of varieties of pizza. They also have desserts- soft serve ice cream, cookies, mini doughnuts, cinnamon buns, chocolate cake, and cheesecake bars. I put some soft serve ice cream in a cup, then headed over to the fountain drinks... Mmmmm... root beer float!
Fun and Games:
You have to buy a game card and credits for the games and rides. The sign says that the card is 50 cents, but I have never been charged for one. Credits are 25cents each and everything is 2 or more credits. The kiddie coaster, for example, is 8 credits... that's $2 each! Kind of steep, if you ask me. You can win tickets with some of the games, then redeem them at the prize counter.
After going on the kiddie coaster, playing a few games, and getting some prizes, I headed to the toddler play area with my youngest children, where they played until it was time to go. We grabbed a cookie on the way out, and had a fun day!

John's Incredible Pizza Co. is a fun place for the whole family.The food is good and there are things for all ages to enjoy. It can get a little crowded and a little noisy, so you might want to keep that in mind. It is also a bit pricey- especially hen it comes to the games and rides.
I would go there again, but because of the price, reserve it for special occasions.
I like the selection of rooms and they do try to keep the clean and neat. It does get loud and crowded at times.
I really like the salad bar and the pizza selection. The food is good. Not spectacular, but still good.
Fun and Games: ¢¢¢¢
There are a good variety of games and rides for all ages. I really like that they included a toddler area.
The price is kind of steep. Normally, I would not pay the price of the buffet for the food that is served. Maybe I'm spoiled, but I know a few really great buffets that serve a bigger variety of better tasting foods from prime rib to an awesome dessert bar, for about what it costs to get in here.
...Then there is the price of the games and rides... at a minimum of 50 cents for the kiddie games and rides that start at $2... well, it really adds up fast.
Overall Rating: ¢¢¢ Like I said, I will go there again, but I will reserve it for special occasions.
