  • What can you really say... it's like kid wonderland. Whatever your kid likes they are likely to find something they like here. Crafts, building things, playing pretend, run and go crazy, reading, racing cars, giant beautiful play area right in the beginning that reminds me of Peter pan a little bit. There's a free family night every month of the first Friday and while it's very crowded and busy it's big enough it's manageable and still fun. It's definitely a family favorite hot spot!
  • Took my 5 and 3 year old here. There were so many activities for both the young, old, timid, and explorer in them. The amount of activities for all age ranges is a massive amount. The grocery store, ice cream and hot dog cart on the 3rd floor was a favorite for them. There was staff members abound to help children and parents. The gift shop had lots of cute toys/shirts for all ages, parents included. If we were locals, we would get a membership. Also, they offer discounts for fire fighters, police officers, and military. We were none of those, but it was nice to be informed and asked if any of these applied before we paid.
  • My son loves coming here and doesn't like it when it is time to leave. He just can't get enough. Playing hide & seek in the noodles on level 3 or follow the leader thru the 3 story tree fort. He loves the bikes and the car wash and the racing tracks with the wooden cats. We have never even made it thru the entire building before. We run out of time. Absolute Joy for all ages.
  • I can't believe this place has only been open 3 years and here was hardly anyone here. There are so many fun activities for 0-13 year olds. My toddler had a blast. They have a cafeteria and what I appreciated is there was always someone coming behind the families and cleaning. Great place to spend a few hours indoors and you will surely keep them busy!!
  • It's a great place for kids! Been taking my son there for years and he absolutely loves it there! He has a great time every time we go! And so do his friends that we've taken there as well.👍👍😃
