  • This was a great place to spend some fun time with my wife and son. The attractions were fairly well maintained and as entertaining for adults as they were children. The price is reasonable, staff was friendly and overall it was a great experience. Minus one star for general cleanliness being sub par, but it's a place for children to be handsy so what can you expect?
  • My 5 year old daughter loved it. There is so much to do I even enjoyed it. They have a dedicated "toddler" section for 6yrs and under but my 5 year old love the big kid section too. It was only $8 a person and with every penny.
  • It takes a day to complete the activities in this place. Kids loved it, and the shop that they have for souvenirs had some one of kind toys.
  • Very nice and interesting place to spend a day with kids. It has a lot of activities to engage kids with varying interests. Loved the day we spent there with my kids and my kids loved their time here.
  • Probably the best place to take your kids. Very fun and educational. Probably best for kids 10 and under but older kids might enjoy it too.
