We took my seven year old granddaughter for the afternoon. Lots to do from face painting to water play to bike riding to a giant sand box and the list goes on. Their food is really good too. A really cool, fun place for kids.

This is the place to take your children if you want to just have fun, or if you want to have a party. My grand Daughter had her birthday party there and it was great. something I am sure she will remember.

The "Illiana" area is rather thin on things to do for small children during winter, but Bellaboo's is a bright spot. Our 1 and 3 year old girls had 2 1/2 hours of fun, various activities, a couple guided things from Bellaboo's staff, and the simple joy of running around with other kids. The prices are very reasonable. The water... More

I booked and paid for my son's first birthday party for November 1st, and Bellaboos contacted me two hours before the party was to take place November 1st and cancelled his party. They completely ruined his first birthday. I had to relocate at the last minute, and was unable to get in contact with everyone that was to attend his... More

This is a cool spot that kept my 6 year old entertained for ~3 hours. She's a big fan of art & crafts so their art corner was a big hit. The 'soft play' jungle gym was really good as well. The entry fee was quite reasonable in my opinion and everything was in clean, working order throughout. Nicely done.

There is so much to do at Bellaboos. It is a hands on play spot with a water room, construction/block room, train room, art room, face painting station, pizza place, village, house, book nook,kitchen and free play area. My kids love it. I think over 5 might get bored easy. The place is Always clean and has friendly staff

Love this place. It is a little Pricey but this kids played all day and never got board. I compare it to chuck cheese and this is a much better option for younger children. The play place is huge. No huge crowds to deals with, and once you are in the door the fun doesn't end, no need to keep... More
