Family Fun at GameTime Miami

Written by, Bernadyn Nettles

We recently traveled to Miami, Florida for Art Basel and while we were there for the weekend, we took a trip to the Sunset Mall to play and have dinner at GameTime.  GameTime is a family fun entertainment center.  Everything from the food to the games and service was a fun and enjoyable experience.  The restaurant is equipped with large televisions, a full bar and a large dining area.  There are two levels, both floors include multiple games to play and the top floor is where you can hold a private party for birthdays and special occasions.

My family was provided a combo package for dinner and four game cards to play.

We ordered a pepperoni and sausage pizza, four beverages and nachos for appetizers.  The service was fast and friendly.

The pizza was delicious and we especially loved the soft, tasty, stringy cheese covering the pizza.  I'm a cheese lover so I was in heaven!  We were pretty hungry from a long day of visiting the art show at Art Basel, inspiring us to order the Nachos 10 for appetizers.  They were one of the best nachos I've had!  It consisted of tortilla chips topped with jalapeƱos, cheddar and jack cheeses, cilantro and our signature homemade chili, served with sour cream and guacamole.

I appreciated how family-friendly the restaurant was for us to dine comfortably and the service was fast.  Our kids did not lose their patience or have a long wait to eat.  After we had our fill of dinner, it was time to play!  

Transformers Game, Video Arcade

We started on the first floor where the Transformers game was located.  My son knew that was the first thing he wanted to try since we saw it on their website.

The next game they ran over to play was air hockey, one of their favorite games when they visit game centers like this.  This specific one was called, PacMan Smash and instead of a single puck, multiple pucks were released at once onto the table.  The kids were thrilled about that, I'm just sorry I didn't catch a picture of the excitement of all the pucks shooting out!

It definitely caused a lot of excitement for them as they were able to hit several pucks at once.

They played a few more games downstairs and then we ventured onto the second floor.

My son loves shooting games and right away he spotted Terminator.

I like that you had a good view of the first level from upstairs.

The private party area was upstairs and there was a party going on in the closed off room.  I'm sure it would be a great place for a celebration of all sorts.You can book it for a birthday party, special event, work events and more.  You even have the option to take over the entire venue.

Unfortunately, GameTime is not located in our city but luckily, there are several locations in Florida because we still have two game cards to use.  We had to get back home so we did not have time to use all the cards.  The newest GameTime location just opened in Fort Meyers, Florida.  I sense another GameTime trip coming soon!

Since we had to leave, we did not have time to pick up any prizes with our tickets (which are tracked onto the game cards.  That's a bonus so you don't have to worry about paper tickets to keep track of while you are walking around playing).  The prizes were located on the bottom floor and there were a ton that my kids were eyeing.

I would highly recommend visiting GameTime with your family or friends for a good time out.  My kids gave it two thumbs up, of course, and they can't wait to play there again.
