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

There is an admission charge but coupons are often available... More

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

young kids love to go there! i'm very glad that it's in the area because, especially in inclement weather, it's a great place to spend some time. i do think that it's pretty expensive though. be prepared to spend some money when you go there, just to get in! but it's a real treat for the little ones. it's set...

This was the second trip here with our Grandaughter...and she loves it and so do we! There are so many rooms to do things in and they have scheduled events also. The dinosaur dig outside is fun and there is a climbing area also. The restaurant has a good selection and the prices aren't bad for what you get. You... More

If you have not visited this palace with your young kids, you are missing out. There is nothing like it within 300 miles...check out their web site, you'll see what I am talking about!
