Just went to Zippy Zappers Family entertainment universe and I wouldn’t recommend it…

I didn’t know where else to write about my experience, I wouldn’t think anyone would care, but I needed to let out my frustration so I figured why not complain about it here. If you never heard of Zippy Zappers it’s basically a knock off of ‘Chuckie Cheeses’, it’s a kid themed pizza parlor with arcades, along with it’s cast of furry friends. Instead of a mouse like Chuckies, Zippy is a beaver with large buck teeth and a flatten tail, it’s an arcade so I figured it would be fun for my kids. I have never visited Gray Hills before, this was my first time and the only reason I was here was because I had to tend to my dead aunt’s estate; apparently she left her home to me in her will.

After getting done with the paperwork my kids complained to me that they were hungry but worse they also told me they were bored, if you don’t have kids understand them being bored is one of the worst things in the world for them; so I searched on my phone for anything local and that’s when I found Zippy Zappers. The reviews seemed good, others spoke about good service and food but more specifically people applauded the family entertainment of it all. I figured I would take them there, kill two birds sort of speak, after all, it was only a 5 minute drive away from where I was. This isn’t important to the story but I found it odd that everything is 5 minutes away here in this town, you type in any destination and it tells you it’s a 5 minute drive, maybe my aunt’s home is located in the center of the of the center of town but the premise left me scratching my head as my skin curled from such a coincidence.

Arriving to Zippy Zappers it didn’t look like much, the parking lot looked a bit abandoned and judging from the outside of the venue itself looked withered with dirty windows; I think it would of been safe to say that it was out of business. I apologized to my kids ‘boy’ and ‘girl’, right away I saw their enthusiastic smiles drop, disappointed to the revelation that their boredom would only continue. I felt apprehensive, the inside was too dark to be open, I even got out of the car and walked over to the front windows pressing my face up against it trying to peer in; all I saw was darkness maybe the windows were just too tinted. I started to walk away annoyed that I wasted time…
