  • This was our first time here. Get there early, take you kid a bathing suit for the Foam/Sprinkler attraction. It was pretty cool. You can leave the place, dry the kiddos off, change their clothes to dry ones, then go back in for some more fun. They have plenty of restrooms on 3 different floors. Gift shop and endless things for the kid to do. We were there for about 5-6 hours. Money well spent. They give a nice military discount. Think $2-3.00 off regular ticket. All the folks there was nice. Recommend you get there at 9:AM when it opens. Get nice covered parking, free parking right down town. Nice area. This one is a must for kiddos up til about age 10-12.
  • Absolutely an Amazing place for our children! So many things to do. I believe if you plan ahead and get on the website you can sign your child up for classes like cooking, pottery etc.. when we were there we saw some rooms with classes going on and were told they are pre-booked. Nevertheless, the CM is a great place to spend the day with your child. Very educational & fun! We went on a weekday not too many people. Parking was a breeze and plenty of it.
  • This place is so much fun, our kids (7 & 5) love it. We recently went for a last fun day before school started and they had foam fun outside. We brought swim clothes and, after we were done exploring inside (lots of great interactive activities), the kids had a blast in the foam outside. It was a great family day and we would highly recommend to anyone with kids under 15 or so.
  • Great for older kids to come and let them explore and play and craft. Not much to do for younger babies infant age. There are a couple (1 or 2) infant areas but I'd say this is more a GREAT place for toddlers and older kids... My children had a blast!
  • MY YOUNGER KIDS LOVE THIS PLACE!!! THEY CAN SPEND HOURS JUST PLAYING ON EVERY LEVEL. I LOVE TO WATCH THEM USE THEIR IMAGINATIONS AND PLAYING WITH ALL THE OTHER KIDS!!! THE CAFETERIA IS CUTE AND HAS PLENTY OF CHOICES FOR ALL KIDS AND ADULTS. THE GIFT SHOP HAS SOME AWESOME TOYS FOR ALL AGES!!!
