Life saver for a layover

Great place to let the kids play while you wait. Only drawback is that no food or drink is allowed inside.

This play area was truly a lifesaver during our two-hour layover at O'Hare. We had just enough time for us to find the place, let our two-year-old play for about an hour, and get to our next departure gate. We were able to keep her happy the whole time while we were waiting at the airport and she got enough... More

Let me paint a picture for you. I haven't set foot in this airport in roughly 16 years. I'm currently 18. I don't remember much of being 2, but for some strange reason, I remember this like it was yesterday. I don't know why I care so much, but I just do. Take it from a kid's perspective, this is...

This was okay if you have the extra time its something to help you do with your kids that have a long layover. This place is big so make sure you have time to go and return to your gate.

Lots of fun airport related hands on exhibits good for younger tots. Fly a plane, gas it up, go to the tower or just relax on the painted benches. Be warned- no food or drink. Plenty of adult seating

The kids had a ball and I could relax knowing the were safe at play. I'm sure travelers on our flights benefited from my kids having the opportunity to wear themselves out at this playground. Great fun

We love the idae that the kids can play with things that make the flight more comprehensible for them The airplane game is great, it's big and many kids can play together and play "flying" games Great idea for kids and great idea for parents who need a place to let their kids play in while at the airport.

Just inside security at Terminal 2 and next to gate F1, the children's interactive museum, "Kids on the Fly," is really a well designed playground for kids 12 years old and under. My 9 year old grand daughter and I had a long lay-over at O'Hare (surprise?) on Sunday after Christmas. We spent an hour or so letting her run,... More

The museum is located on the other side of the security check. You can't get to it unless you have a boarding pass to a flight that day. Totally wasted trip to O'Hare and very disappointed granddaughter!
