Its a good place to go but you can get easily over whelmed at the amount of kids that will show up to a specific event. Try and go on off days if you want quality time together.

Thank you for your review! We are usually pretty busy during the summer due to a higher volume of field trips. If you'd like to come during a quieter time, we recommend trying another visit in late September or during the month of October.

We took for three grandchildren - ages 2, 4, and 6 - here on Friday. A great place for them and for us. A very wide range of activities. Helpful and attentive staff. A surprise for us.

I have taken my daughter and her friends a bunch of times and I'm really never impressed. It is expensive for a family to go and it's just admission. There aren't any helpful people walking around or showing you what you can do. We went...More
