I was not impressed. I felt like our Hibachi grill back home was better with food and presentation. The food had a blain taste.

Onda by Scarpetta

Encore Speedway

We had a blast in the go carts we had 9 people and made a reservation so all of us could drive together. It’s definitely worth the $15.

Galaxy Pavilion

4 out of 5

We did the Escape room, which we were unable to do. Communication between the instructor and our group was not clear. But we did have a good time. I did the formula 1 VR car which was a blast. There were a variety of VR games.

Encore Theater

We enjoyed the shows and the seating was great. We saw Choir of Men and Kinky Boots.
