The restaurant is heavily themed, and really appeals to kids - food good, but the varied decor and costumed staff really made the place fun - kids loved it.

Food was dissent. Our waitress (Snow White) was very 👍. I don't know, I guess we were expecting a little more. You know, music fun time atmosphere. The 7 kids did like the smoking drinks.

Rapunzel got me into trouble...Ha ha. It's a fun restaurant for the kids. The food is bland and boring, but reasonably priced. The restaurant has a variety of visually stimulating seating arrangements. It's definitely worth a one time visit.

We dined there after asking the question. They do have a menu of gluten free items. Just ask the server.

If I remember correctly, the Magic Time machine in San Antonio only takes reservations for large parties. If I were you, I would request to sit near the salad car- there is more action and fun going on in that area. We sat... More
