Injures at Family Entertainment Centers in Texas
Family entertainment centers, also known as all-in-one family event centers, are popular with adults and kids for a fun outing or as a great place to host milestone celebrations such as birthday parties and the end of a child’s sports season. Most family entertainment centers like Main Event, Dave & Buster’s, and Houston Funplex offer pizza, arcade games, and bowling. Some even have laser tag, bumper cars, and rock climbing walls. A kid’s dream come true, right? Maybe, but the child-friendly music and atmosphere with flashing lights can distract parents and kids alike from dangerous conditions that can cause serious harm.
If your child or loved one has been seriously hurt or passed away because of an incident at a family entertainment center, our Texas child injury attorneys at The Button Law Firm can help you get the compensation your family deserves and protect others from getting hurt in the future.

Common Causes of Accidents and Injuries at Family Entertainment Centers
Injuries at a family entertainment center fall under a specific area of law called premises liability. These preventable injuries happen because of an unsafe condition or hazard at the facility.
The most common causes of accidents at these all-in-one family-friendly event centers include:
- Inadequate or untrained staff, leading to safety issues. This includes any playgrounds, games, or rides that require supervision from employees.
- Inadequate security, meaning the venue does not provide enough safety measures for you and your family to enjoy the games and other activities without worrying about getting hurt.
- Rides and other machinery that have not been properly maintained
- Unkept spaces such as spilled soda or other drinks on the floors that pose a risk for falls
- Unmaintained escalators that can catch small hands and feet in the grates, or elevators that can trap people in the doors
While accidents happen at venues that cater to families and young children, preventable incidents that cause serious harm to you or a child should not be taken lightly. Learn more about how injuries happen at family entertainment and event centers here.
Filing a Claim After an Injury at a Family Entertainment Center in Texas
An incident involving your child at a family event center can take emotional and financial tolls on you and your family. The good news: You have an option to hold the facility responsible for their negligence and failure to keep the venue safe for your family by filing a claim. In Texas, you have two years to file a claim to seek compensation, also known as damages, and hold the family entertainment center accountable. If your child was injured at an all-in-one family entertainment center, the parents or guardian may file a claim on behalf of the child.
Damages that you or your family may be compensated for include:
- Emotional distress
- Medical expenses, including ongoing medical treatments
- Pain and suffering
In case a loved one experiences a fatal injury at a family entertainment center, survivors may be eligible for compensation to cover:
- Funeral expenses
- Medical expenses incurred prior to passing away
- Loss of consortium for family members, including a spouse, parent, and child (or filial consortium)
- Loss of income
- Emotional damages such as pain and suffering
- Other unexpected costly fees
