This place is awesome. We should have worn tennis shoes and t- shirts because I started to break a sweat in my sweater. Three point challenge, slam dunks for all heights, and even being a sportscaster for a few minutes. If you like sports this is a great way to spend an afternoon in KC!

What a great time my family had here today! My two sons loved all the activities and challenges, as did my wife and I. There are two levels of interactive areas, from free throws to 3 point shots to dunking! Hours and hours of fun!

We visited the College Basketball Experience recently with my 14 year old son. It was a great way to spend several hours on a hot afternoon. The interactive approach was a great way to mix in the history and facts of college basketball. I thought the fee to get in was reasonable and we really enjoyed the afternoon. The afternoon... More

I took my son here when we were on vacation. It sounded interesting and he wanted to go when I told him about it. He loves basketball. Unless you are wanting to shoot hoops I'd say save your money and just go to the ymca. This place is just an over priced gymnasium. The interactive stuff was crowded and the... More

This is a one of a kind museum/interactive experience. Tons of basketball related games and history as well. Loved the field trip I went on with my kiddos.

This is a great place to visit and learn some history on basketball. There are 2 levels and activities to keep you busy for quite a few hours. Don't forget to wear sneakers. Fun for little kids through adults. They have a lot of staff supervision too so no need to worry about safety.

We have an 11 year old boy and a 13 yr old girl. Both kids really enjoyed themselves at the College Basketball Experience. There are many interactive games to play alone or as a family. The day we went was a rainy day and this was a perfect fit for our family. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing... More

Our family with two teenagers visited and had an absolute blast! None of us are great bb-players but that didn't stop us from thoroughly enjoying our time there. We played every game available and several times. You just can't stop yourself. We got a nice workout as a bonus. We practically had to drag our kids out of there after... More

I love basketball so I loved the college basketball experience. There is so much to do and all of it is so fun. You absolutely have to see this if you love basketball.

We were very disappointed to see that the only women represented in The College Basketball Experience were cheerleaders. I'm pretty sure that women also play college basketball. The games are all basically full sized variations of pop-a-shot. My daughter, a hopeful collegiate basketball player, was also disappointed that the balls available for the full court did not include women's regulation... More
