  • This was a great place to spend the day with young children. It was interactive, clean and super affordable. You can truly spend all day there.
  • We had a birthday party there last week. Staff was great but there was a miscommunication between the staff person that booked the event and the one in charge of the event. The former claimed goody bags were included and the latter stated that was not the case. No point in arguing the day off the event but if I had to do it again, I would confirm the terms in writing.
  • This place rocks. My 3 kids absolutely love it. There is a creation station in the front. Then there is a mini golf and tree fort. There's puppets, a stage and other play areas in the back. I highly recommend a season pass if you live in the area. You can bring guests if you have a season pass.
  • Very kool. Worth the money. Will go again!
  • Great for kid between 18months and 4 years old. Depending of the interest of your child you may stay between 1h to 2h but I doubt more. Very clean and staff that looks happy to work!
