This is a great activity for kids. It can be very crowded on holidays and when kids are off from school.

If you are looking for something fun AND educational for the kids, this is a must visit! I went with my 5 year old, my 8 year old niece, and my sister. We all had a great time! I'd definitely go again!!!

Absolutely! There will be a few things he/she can't do, but as opposed to the things your toddler will be able to do- it's worth it. I've been taking my child since he was a little over 1. Great place!
