I've had nothing but bad experience after bad experience with the Hickey family who own and work at the Kids Fun Zone in New Hartford Village. Apparently they think their year-round laser tag and video game place is too "special and fancy" for us Whitesboro people. Stupid New Hartford snobs.

I get along better with the people at Chucky Cheese.

Sounds like a personal problem. They don't hate Whitesboro people. Get real! You were probably a bitch!

No Sonny, I agree with the original poster. The Hickey's ARE stuck up. The only time they are ever in Utica is for the Boilermaker or the Pride Parade (apparently someone in their family is gay, I'm not sure who). They think they own New Hartford. If you're not from there they don't want to have anything to do with you. I went into the Fun Zone once and Mrs. Hickey was so cold she almost made me cry.

My bad experience was not from anything personal. I've been to the place once and I won't be back with either of my two children. My five year old was interested in the laser tag "tent" and the little bitch working there said that we needed a ticket to be in there, we simply poked our head in the "tent", that's what provoked the " you need a ticket" response. Their service sucks and the games were out dated. To the staff and owners: fuck off! My money will never hit your pockets again!

Apparently if you live in New Hartford you get treated like royalty at that place.

Pay attention, it has nothing to do with living in New Hartford, the guy that owns the place is from Cooperstown and he's rude to everyone.

Well, the husband is the owner and an AH, so I guess they deserve each other.

I do live in NH. So what, there is no way that they would have known where I live. Regardless, I'm done with the place!

I like it too, especially the laser tag tent. And for all the haters who say the Hickeys only like New Hartford people - I live in North Utica. Mrs. Hickey knows this because she's been at my mom's place. In fact, she and my mom are good friends. And I know that Mrs. Hickey volunteers her time in Utica with kids. So whoever said they only go to Utica twice a year for the Boilermaker and the gay parade is lying.(mrs. Hickey's twin sister is gay by the way)
oh boy

ok, so this all cracks me up. I AM Mrs. Hickey, I am from Utica - so you are all wrong and thinking of the wrong person. I don't work at the Fun Zone, but can assure you and everyone else on here posting lame topics, our staff, including my well mannered husband are helpful and far from stuck up! If you have a problem, instead of hiding behind your computers, why don't you call and voice your complaint directly. We'd be happy to hear from you. And by the way, I do not have a twin sister and my husband is originally from California. Please get your facts strait before posting ignorant comments.
Love the fun zone
