  • We drove 2 hours to check out KCDC. It did not disappoint. There were so many activities for my 4 and 1 year old. The staff we're constantly cleaning and sanitizing. My 1 year old fell and bumped his head, an employee came over and asked if he needed an ice pack. Cannot say enough about out experience. Wish it was closer so we could go more often!
  • We visited here while on vacation! My 3 kids absolutely loved this place and keep asking when we can go back!
  • They should not charge adults. We are traveling across the US and needed a place for my toddlers to play. Great place for kids but expensive if you consider that every adult pays.
  • Really cute little center with carpeted floors and fun areas. A lot of vocational (vet, auto shop, restaurant, etc.) focused areas, but also has an art area, a wood shop, rave room (don't know what else you'd call it, black light and glowing things that go up on the walls). Our toddler really enjoyed himself. Anything over ten years old, and they might get a little bored after one visit, but this was perfect for our cooped up kiddo on a trip to town to see relatives.
  • This is a great place for kids of all ages with a variety of "experience" stations. Admission is good for all day and if you plan to spend the day you'll want to leave for lunch because the only food to be found inside is in a vending machine and won't make due for lunch.
