  • I often take my two children here. The building provides plenty for them to do. From a fake veterinary hospital, grocery store, stage to a fake restaurant and airport. My kids always find something to...  more »
  • In the heart of huntersville. This place is a great escape for my young children (1yr, 3yrs). Staff is great and they really keep everything clean.  more »
  • This place is perfect to play with children from 1 to 5/6 years old. There is something for everyone! Trucks of fireman, kitchen, slide shows!

  • This place is best for the 7 and under crowd. Older kids may get a little board. There's an area for eating a bring it yourself lunch. They have vending machines but no hot food. There are restaurants across the street. Off of that room is a quiet room for nursing mothers. The bathrooms are clean. They provide stools for kids to wash hands easily. Bring a change of clothes for the water tables, my kids never fail to get soaked even with the smocks provided. A large cage looking play tower is located right in the middle. If it's your first time, there's only one way in and out of it. Many first timers get scared when their child takes off into it. It looks like they can get out to the second floor, but they can't. Puppet shows are performed throughout the day. Walking into the main play area to the right is a space geared towards the littlest ones. It is gated so they can't run off. Part of the water tables are in this area with safe seats for 2 and under. There is a matted play area. It has matted sides that come up so the babies are contained. There's a stairway tucked away towards the ocean room. If you go up there is a tiny play room with toys and books. It makes for a nice quiet break. It's usually empty. There are many little stations to play at; Doctors office, Vet, Farm, Ocean, Fire Truck, Ambulance, Grocery, Dinner, Race Car, Bank, Post Office, Gym, Rock Climbing, Theater It can get crowded and loud. It helps to show up right at open to avoid this. The price of membership seems steep but it's worth it. $130 for just this location, add a second location for $160 or all locations for $200.
  • Really cool children's discovery facility. The ages are mid elementary to toddler. My grandson is two and we got him and his family a family membership so they can go anytime. We went during the new years school break and is was packed. Facility is top notch.
  • This place is great. I bring all three kids ages 1-7 and they all have a great time! There's no real food other than vending machines, and I sometimes wish there were more bathrooms, but otherwise it's perfect!
  • Fun for the toddler and friends. It started a bit crowded because of field trips, but once they cleared out, it was much better and my son could enjoy. He really enjoyed the grocery store area, the deli, and water tables. Bring a change of clothes if you plan to let your little one splash around.
  • My son had the best time exploring this place! It's really great for all ages. They really could use some more seating for parents though. I loved the craft area and can't wait to utilize it more when he is a little bit bigger. The water table area was a huge hit with us! There is a nice, small area out front with a couple tables that is a nice place for a picnic lunch. I am looking forward to out next visit
