We had been here a few times. Last time I went, our younger kid still really enjoyed it. The older one seemed a bit bored. I think the age cutoff is about 10. Worth going and fun for the kids, but make sure they are still young enough

We were traveling with a 2 year old and a baby. We stopped here for about 45 minutes. It was a good place to stretch our legs. We had to carry out our 2 year old crying because she wanted to stay. I only gave 4 stars for a variety of adult reasons. She would have given it 5 stars... More

My kids who are 4 and 2 loved it Everything and I do mean everything is hands on. From taking care of pets in the animal hospital to giant bubbles to grocery shopping in the Winn Dixie market. Parents be prepared to participate in the activities with your child. My only thing I wondered about was how often are the... More

small museum, has centers for kids to play in, i.e., vet office, shopping store, ambulance they can crawl in, bubble center. It didn't seem to have anything new since last year...if you need somewhere to go with the 6 and under group, it works.
