  • Kids played for about 4 hours and weren't ready to leave. The only thing missing is food. Would have been great if they had a concession stand. It was $8 a person (kids & adults) to get in. Lots of fun activities.
  • Great, affordable place to take your kids for the afternoon. The staff is super friendly and my boys (5 & 3) absolutely loved the airplane! Think Magic House on a smaller scale, but also less busy so your kids have more time to play with what they want. We'd become members for sure if we didn't live two hours away, but we'll be back. The kids loved it!
  • Both my kids (ages 5 and 1) LOVE playing here when outside isn’t an option. We usually spend about 3 hours. Please keep in mind, this is a place for families to have fun TOGETHER; It’s NOT a daycare. So, yes, there is a fee for adults as well as children, and, no, you cannot drop them off and return later. They aren’t your babysitters. Definitely worth it if you plan on playing with your children.
  • Great place to keep your children entertained for hours. A lot of different things for them to do. Nice and clean too.
  • Didn't even realize it was there until a birthday party invite. My 4 year old didn't want to leave. Great place
