  • We literally just left this place and only spent 30 minutes here. It’s more directed towards toddlers to like 6 years of age. Admission was 12 dollars a person, including our niece. There was a giant ...  more »
  • Truth be told, this is an over priced playground...$48 for a family of 4. There are three play areas...one is a souped up jungle gym, the second is a water play area, and third is arts and crafts. The...  more »

  • $12 admission for age 1 and over is a bit much , particularly for large family. My 2 year old had fun. The facility is beautifully made for kids under 12. Grand opening they were offering admission going towards membership. We could not pass on taking $48 off of $120 family of 6, year pass. They are adding more this year and it is already a great facility for young kids especially toddlers. UPDATE: Had membership since opening day. I am a bit disappointed that none of other rooms opened. Not sure when but I probably will not renew this membership. 1 day visit is better if there isn't more to do.
  • Wow. This place is a gem. It's pricey, but worth it. My kids did not stop for 3 hours, and never got bored. We didn't even see all of the rooms. Great mix of physical stuff, motor skill stuff, arts and crafts stuff and learning stuff. Membership prices are about 3x the entry fee. Go 3 times in a year and it's worth it. Right off of the health line bus too.
  • The Wonder Lab water room is amazing. They provide three sizes of waterproof smocks so kids can explore without getting soaked, and it's a small enough space that caregivers can sit back and still keep an eye out. The upstairs dollhouses are also a favorite, where kids can use small flashlights to examine the insides and hunt for the CMC logo hidden in each house. There are also several more rooms of awesome stuff. Easy to spend a whole day, but be sure to pack a lunch because while they have tables, they do not have a cafe.
  • Great place to bring young kids, maybe age 10/11 tops. Several hours of fun, multiple floors, lots of bathrooms, brand new built as of now. Dry fun, wet fun. Arts and crafts. $12/adults or kids. Infants free.
  • A very cool place to take little ones!! It’s very clean, and there are a good variety of activities for them to do. I also love that there’s a separate room for kiddos who may have some sensory issues to get away. It’s a little pricey, but I found it to be worth it. I’d love to see them put in a small cafe so families could have lunch there.
