  • Fun place for the kids on a bad weather days. Small but well laid out, excellent water table.
  • Fun place for the kids to play and learn at the same time. Didn't expect the size to be as small as it is yet the layout accommodates many children and adults comfortably. Clean and safe educational fun for the family.
  • The only problem here was trying to pry my 3 year old away. He was having a blast and didn't want to leave.
  • Bring my kids here once a year or so, and they have a blast every time.
  • lots of freedom to make believe and play when the weather isn't cooperating.
