  • Great service, my boys love it. Now adults...well
  • Our boys love coming here! There are a lot various activities on 2 levels. My kids could play all day. There are activities for toddlers to preteens. The prices have gone up a lot since our last visit. It was $13 for 2 kids & myself. We only had an hour available for play. The staff wasn't as helpful or friendly as they were on previous visits.
  • Great learning fun for kids in Pierre.
