So, why is Prodigy ages 13+ only? Don't you care about kids?
The minigolf is very challenging and requires some sort of motor skill. We actually had some incidents in the beginning of our history that forced us to make the ages 13+ decision. The video games are mostly retro from the 1970s and 1980s and even some are worth a lot in value creating yet another issue with certain young ones. We also occasionally have some mature/violent games that get played that some parents would not want their child seeing. That being stated, we offer all ages mornings on most Sundays so check out our SHOP page for those dates. We also ask that you stop by sometime if you've never been here to see if this place is right for your young one and if it's something in which they'd be interested.
What does admission really get me? Are games additional costs?
For the low cost of $10 or $12, you have the ability to show up and play all day at Prodigy. Go get lunch... come on back! Go walk the dog, take a nap and come back to give Guitar Hero another attempt! All 2200+ video games, over 130 board games, pool, Skee-ball, air hockey, minigolf... the entire room is available for free play until close.
How do I find Prodigy? It's so freakin' hidden!
Prodigy is secretly located on the ground floor (bottom floor) of the Eastworks mill in Easthampton, MA. There are a bunch of different ways to get in here, but the best way is with the rear entrance to Eastworks. Follow the signs for INSA off Pleasant St and drive down the small driveway to the left of Eastworks if you're facing the front. Once down the small hill, you'll see Prodigy signs on your right. Park out back and take the ramp in. The rear entrance is fully handicap accessible and open until we close. You may park back there until close, as well.
Do you offer private rentals? I want this place to myself!
Yes! Check out our RENTAL page for details. We don't close for any rentals, so we only offer times when we are normally closed.
Does everyone have to pay? My cousin's not going to play.
Our policy is paid admission for anybody that comes in, so yes... your cousin will have to pay to enter the gameroom. This same policy goes for our all ages events. Every human must pay admission.
Do you offer group rates?
Currently we are not allowed to accept groups of more than 10 people. We also think that our regular admission rate is cheap enough. But, of course, we do offer pre-paid 10-admission PUNCH CARDS for $2 off each admission. Check out our SHOP for more details.
Do you take reservations? Does it get slammin' in there?
These days, we are slower than we used to be and even with a smaller allowed capacity, there is no worry about overcrowding. We do not take reservations, but we do sell presales for most ALL AGES events we hold. Check out the SHOP page for more info.
Can I just come to play minigolf? I'm not really into video games.
Of course! But know that with your paid admission, you are granted access to all games in the room. We do not have a discounted rate for only playing minigolf.
Do you have drinks or food? I get so thirsty when I play.
We have NON-ALCOHOLIC drinks like soft drinks, energy drinks, flavored seltzers and water. No food yet. We used to have Pop Tarts and Cliff Bars and will again eventually. If you're saying to yourself, "You should sell alcohol here!" I only say it's a who process and who different liability to a business. There are plenty of bars around to visit and you can back, but Prodigy is also very fun when you're sober. In fact, usually a clear thinking head helps here.
Do you offer discounts for veterans or elders?
Without a doubt! We offer $2 off for those that have served in our military and for those that have walked the Earth for a quite some time. Just let us know at the front desk.
How may I ask a question?
You can use the chat feature on this desktop site or email firstname.lastname@example.org. My name is Jeff... I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Not to say all Jeffs don't get back to people, but they usually don't. It's why I'm not friends with many Jeffs. But, I will! :-)
