We got there right at open and spent the whole day! We started with walking through the shops. We dipped candles, had our picture taken in period clothing, picked up some tasty treats... Then we strolled through the Wizards house and had such a great time in the " theatre" that we did it a second time! We watched a... More

Clark’s is a wonderful place to bring your family, the bear show and Chinese acrobats were amazing. Lots of fun on the Segway’s, train ride and the water bumper ride we got soaked but didn’t care thankful for the great gift shop having sweat shirts to change into after, it was a little chili that day.

We called in October during the week and only the gift shop was operating, you couldn't even buy a cup of coffee. On the plus side the shop was quite good, but the idea of a venue with 'dancing bears' seems inappropriate in this day and age.

The gift stores are super cute and the... More
