  • You can easily spend a few hours at Great Explorations. I have two under 5 and both have plenty to keep themselves busy, which is hard to find most places. Watch Groupon for deals or get a membership.  more »

  • The whole family had a good time. There was a large selection of activities. I wish the area was a bit tidier, but I bet it's not easy to keep clean with kids playing all day. Seemed to lack toys in specific areas, could use more legos and theatre play for example. All in all it was a lot of fun, I'm thinking about getting a membership because the daily fee is rather pricey. Compared to other venues of similar type, this was among the cleanest and well organized, and had an appropriate amount of space for play. Not packed at all and it was safe to let my son explore as he wished.
  • Great variety of imaginative and social play activities. Two or three kept my 11 year-old engaged for a couple of hours. Geared more though for the younger crowd. Fantastic equipment to be creative and make your own fun, learning as you go.
  • Great Explorations is an awesome place to beat the heat, stay out of the rain or avoid any other 15 minutes of inclement weather Florida throws at you. Kids have to play and explore, GE, has the space and resources for the little ones to do it all! I have seen a lot of improvement to an already great place over the past year and look forward to renewing our annual membership.
  • My kids had a lot of fun here. This is targeted toward babies and toddlers. My kiddos really enjoyed the art and pizza making sections.
  • Children were occupied for hours and didnt want to leave. Great amounts to discover learn and play.... Children xan be there from open to close and not get bored. Awesome! Very accomodating for birthday parties and a fantastic face painter.
