  • Awesome. Really cool concept. Amazing learning experience for young children. I was a little surprised that they charged adults for a kids activity, but at least it wasn't expensive. My four year old son had an absolute blast. We will definitely go back if we're ever in the area again. Definitely well worth it and fun.
  • A good place to visit with young kids on a rainy day (though it will be busier). There are a decent amount of activities for kids, but given the volume of guests at the time we visited, many of the stations were in disarray. Props and toys were misplaced or missing. Children may not notice this but it is still an issue that could be addressed by staff. Overall, if it's a rainy day or you have a coupon, it's worth checking out at least once, especially if you have younger kids.
  • This is a really great place with near endless tis, games, and themes for the little ones to play and learn from. Would definitely recommend to any parents looking for a fun and safe place for their kids to play (and destroy a place that isn't theirs)
  • Fun. Slightly pricey but mostly clean and organized. The kids had a ball!
  • We bought season passes here for our 2 and 4 year olds. There is plenty of age appropriate activities for both ages and they can easily spend hours here. In nice weather there is also a great outdoor area
