Not So Incredible...But Still Fun
Our first visit to America's Incredible Pizza Company was on New Year's Eve 2006 in Springfield, MO. It was a fun diversion for the kids then...as it was for the kids today when we visited their location in St. Peters. A couple things to note if you are considering taking your kids (and you probably don't want to go if you don't have kids). First off, lower your expectations. You're not going for the food. If you go in with low expectations then you might be pleasantly surprised by the pizza and buffet fare. Go early, in fact I'd recommend going between 3-4 PM so you can take advantage of the lunch pricing. Also would recommend Fridays where you get an additional $10 in game credit for every $20 spent. We fed 10 people and $60 worth of game credits for our 4 kids for a total bill of around $100. Not bad. Our expectations were low. We had the place to ourselves. The kids had a blast riding go karts, manning the bumper cars and sampling the other games. All walked away with prizes from tickets won. And the adults had a good time as well. So to recap. The pizza's not incredible (if you want that hit Dewey's or Pi). The games are good and more diverse than say Chuck E Cheese. This doesn't have to break the bank (go early and take advantage of special food and game offers). You can have fun. However, if you stop by and the parking lot is packed...just drive away and come back another day.
